O’s Notes: Trumpeter and vocalist Kermit Ruffins and his band the Barbecue Singers have become a part of the fabric of the Crescent City and his love affair resonates in the title, #imsoneworleans. In addition to his normal Bourbon Street groove Ruffins invites several guest artists to make it special. Mayo Jones sings a soulful arrangement of “At Last” and his daughter, 8 years old Kaylin Orleans Ruffins sings “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”. We also liked “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” and “Put Your Right Foot Forward”.
