Sweet Georgia

One thing I like about jazz, kid, is that I don't know what's going to happen next. Do you?

We always have musical performers at our local farmers market. Last Saturday despite the rain and coolness, everyone was out. A New Orleans jazz style band played on and a crowd favorite was "Sweet Georgia Brown". Babies bounced in their strollers, teenagers tried to act as if they weren't into it, and everyone's feet tapped as they strolled down the street.

Anita O'Day, "Sweet Georgia Brown (performed at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival)":
