"The same spirit that enters the people of (and in) New Orleans during the Mardi Gras time infuses the music of the Carnival season. Music is literally everywhere, whether a brass band in Jackson Square playing 'Saints' for the umpteenth time or a recorded version of the favorite 'Mardi Gras Mambo' being blasted from some huge speakers on the bed of a truck. The juke boxes are stocked with seasonal fare and muzak versions of Carnival hits which fill the ears of shoppers at the mall. Music is the key to the festivities, and in the words of Arthur Hardy, publisher of the Annual 'Mardi Gras Guide,' the city's traditional jazz is the soul of the celebration. On this collection we are treated to sixteen performances of New Orleans jazz that are associated with Mardi Gras. The stylistic thread running throughout this disc is the beat, that unmistakable yet indescribable beat, is the hallmark of the music that accompanies parade season." Liner notes by Jon Pult

I am wondering whether I might find out the name of the artist who drew the sketches of Foutain on the top piece of your blog.

Thanks
