Joe's Cozy Corner
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
JOE’S COZY CORNER
When the subject of culture icons is mentioned, “Joe’s Cozy Corner” usually finds itself at the top of the list. A New Orleans landmark, in its own rights, many of the second-line jazz bands call it home. Known as a major culture attraction for young musician at night, Joe’s also serves as a gathering hole for local customers of senior years by day.
Through out the night, the sounds of jazz ferret from one bar to another only to culminate in a late night gig at Joe’s. However, unlike the late night sit-ins that centers around a beckoning stage with dark lights and smoke grill air, the day crowd at Joe’s congregates on the outside around a home made shoe shine stand. There, telling unimaginable tall stories of by-gone sessions when they were young and played the music call jazz.
It was here that I met and succumbed to the local characters that, in my opinion, nourished the experience that, no doubt, keeps the culture of jazz alive.
