Ya can’t stuff the notes back in Louis Armstrong’s trumpet

“Crime? Yes, it thrives along with the magic. Festering wounds? Sure, but tour-bus outings to the still-devastated Ninth Ward stop at grassroots home-building initiatives such as the Musicians’ Village and the Brad Pitt-led Make It Right project. Not rebuild the country’s most distinctive cultural scene? You might as well try to stuff the notes back into Louis Armstrong’s trumpet.”

-Jerry Shriver, Town&Country. August 2010.
