Mr. Okra #1


/ Monday, December 1st, 2014

Mr. Okra was a New Orleans icon who has recently passed away. He sang his wares on his loud speaker and you could always find him at JazzFest. I went to his birthday party one year; it was a blast, great music and a rocking good time. “The Gospel According to New Orleans”, my collection of iconic New Orleans musicians, commemorates their role in the evolution of the eccentric culture and music traditions of New Orleans. All depicted in this series are musical and cultural icons who make or live on through significant contributions to the uniqueness of what composes the spirit of New Orleans. SOLD
