i was looking for nice covers of la vie en rose today, and ran across a number of nice shows, including this one that nolataper shared a some point. this is a lot of fun (i must get back to new orleans some day…), and nicely edited (thanks, nolataper, for editing out station ids, and so well!) ms. ketchens seems to be described just as a clarinetist, which is true, but it turns out she’s also a fine singer! a nice surprise, not having heard this show since i first downloaded it (as is so often the case). in fairness, this is not my favorite version of the song from the shows i’ve been listening to, but the concert really hit it for me. there you are, eh? perhaps we’ll get a few more versions of la vie en rose before this weekend is out…
