A lazy late summer Sunday afternoon is just asking for some real New Orleans jazz. The city is synonymous with the tones of a sultry saxophone, the tinkling of piano keys and the driving tempo from a bass or drums. No matter the variety of the sound from Dixieland, or smooth, to Zydeco jazz music flavors New Orleans as much as a bowl of spicy gumbo.
A fictitious French Quarter bar, the St. Honoré’s Bar and Grill, located on the famed Bourbon Street plays a pivotal role in my novel “Crescent City Lies.” The protagonist, Emeline Drake, stops in for the bar’s infamous muffuletta sandwiches (apologies to the Central Grocery which does have the best!) and stumbles into a past she had put behind her. The bar is also known as a favorite of locals who love jazz.
