Happy Birthday Fats Domino!

We are itching to get down to NOLA for our annual Jazzfest trip, so it is with great joy we get to wish one of the patron saints of that town a Happy Birthday
Today back in 1928 Fats Domino was born down in the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans.  Such a great artist, his songs are timeless, so enjoy a few this evening: 
"I'm Walkin'"

"Walking To New Orleans"


We will end with "Blueberry Hill" 

I have a distinct memory of listening to this song very early on in my schooling (kindergarten I believe) which would make it one of the first songs I heard out side of my family's (Irish Folk, Beatles, Soul, Doo-Wop, Jazz and of course Sesame Street) music they played for me. Wow Not sure I had thought about in decades...ain't tunes amazing?!?!  Anyways...Happy Birthday Fats.
