This weekend, I’m Louisiana bound again. So we’ll see how much things have changed!

To set the mood, some New Orleans tunes: jazz, r&b, funk… you know the drill. I pulled together a few fave songs for the road. You can listen, too — just check out the playlist here: Down to New Orleans by Kate on Grooveshark

Any other New Orleans music suggestions out there? Let me know in the comments!
