“I can do bad all by myself”

That’s the title of one of the tracks Glen David Andrews laid down for us inside of the van as it was parked alongside a curb behind the Louisiana Music Factory.

“It’s so damn hot in here I might relapse.”

Is a line the man spoke right before he played that track. It was just a phrase that slipped out of his mouth at the time. Maybe he thought about it, maybe he didn’t. It’s as real as that heat was though. That struggle comes through in the tunes. How do you gig in New Orleans without taking a sip? One might suppose you let your horn do the drinking and pray the rest handles itself. Cheers to you for that Mr. Andrews, it certainly is, a wonderful world.
