That that -- Problems batted the -- and again you know. Yeah. There is no cities it gets into disappear of that and gets wilder crazier -- and is a better receipt from the page. In the audience in the war and so world Puerto. I know we spent a lot of time overseas and you you may not have a response to this but I'm I'm curious as to whether or not. From -- has inspected. The music community. -- New Orleans and and in the metropolitan. Area you see any difference after permitted. Well the different -- you know about it it for the first time in in -- that is not be human memories that are tour buses driving to determine as well -- for the quarter. -- -- I would hope that it means that you know there's gonna be debated the clubs have been surviving independent. Doing all -- Music in the -- paper -- Are surviving and thriving. That would be you know one great contribution because to about it by themselves don't don't do much for the community but. If the people get cut the bonuses and go to your music and the music is still there and align it and and a driving that that would be applause but that that's volatile.

Are or where they -- control in terms of you know we take -- to kill Garland but people do -- this year have been coming up -- mean thing. In the city on the water. Yeah. Yeah yeah in polite country with the television and electricity and everything -- that so the fact that remains out there you know throwing the vibrancy of the annual musical culture. It's it's the first demand media. Keep it that the war it has gone on a consistent basis. It applied. And so for the people aren't playing any real politics -- its first time new Orleans back in the air and they're on their radar since then it -- it it has. OK it is -- on the -- for people. Then that's got to be good news. Just completed -- book on the incredible lights of key recruits. -- and one of the things that surprised me should have known -- and sure most people in New Orleans do. No it I've heard a little bit but I wasn't knowledgeable but he talks about than their beginning. Talking about all the heroes and I thought it would have been elbows and bill alien comments in the etc. -- was -- about it was New Orleans. Musicians playing out. In the England. And he talked about. How big they weren't a -- big PR and then laid Roland. He talked about when he began to live in Jamaica. And they would listen that night to a radio station. In New Orleans playing New Orleans music called double up yeah well. But a lot of that music. New Orleans musicians are known world war under the enough. Yeah -- yeah. And I've I would I would hope isn't -- time that don't go to commitment -- you -- the audit ability to field there's they're and of again. Mean it it is it like that old cliche you know more appreciated abroad and all sometimes. So and the. I've why is there such area European attraction to jazz and put it. The good bond insurer. Yeah I'd I'd. It's. So different from the European musical project. You know it comes from a different debate that literally comes at a different place. And it -- abide by different rules and it's just something that -- never -- to grow up with it it's not part of there. Musical heritage and so it has the little over the excitement of the chaotic and also would basically good news. What what's your favorite song that Judith is going to be doing.
