In the current issue we review Jeremy Davenport’s newest CD, “We’ll Dance til Dawn,” and Together Tomorrow’s debut CD “As Quick As You Can” and you can have your pick of which one you want by simply sending us your choice and your mailing address.
On his latest album, Jeremy Davenport not only proves that he is a jazz man for the ages, but that he is an accomplished composer. His original compositions are fresh but comfortable and mix easily with his collection of standards. His duet, “Mr. New Orleans” with Kermit Ruffins will definitely have you hitting the replay button on your CD player or iPod over and over! Plus, if you want to hear Jeremy live, you can catch him on Thursday through Saturday nights on the third floor of the Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans.
Hailing from Hurley, Mississippi, alternative rockers Together Tomorrow are skilled beyond their years, both in terms of the band’s longevity and the three members’ ages—the band has only been together a little over a year, the guys—Jesse, Mason, and Marcus—are all in their early 20s. All of the tunes on the CD are originals and these guys’ musicality will certainly take them far so jump on this band’s wagon and give a listen to them before they hit it big, which is only a matter of time!

Fall Breezes In...
Welcome to the Fall 2009 issue of Southern Breeze where we take you on a whirlwind tour of the Gulf Coast as we explore historic lighthouses, vacation in Lake Charles, Louisiana, get spooked in Pensacola, sit in the lap of luxury in New Orleans, all the while savoring the wonderful fall weather that turns our region just a little more colorful.
Our cover story on Gulf Coast lighthouses by Associate Editor Derek Bagley will have you getting in your car (or boat)—camera in hand—to visit these iconic, historical treasures. Once an integral part of maritime life on the Gulf Coast, they remind us of our region’s wonderful past while many still provide a beacon of safety to wary seafarers. If you’re looking for a getaway to different side of Louisiana, join us on our in-depth tour of Lake Charles by Courtney Austin. I guarantee you’ll be making your hotel and restaurant reservations before you put the issue down!
To really get into the spirit of the season, our Let’s Eat column features delicious pumpkin recipes and we invite you to Pensacola to get spooked by the spirits that hang out in various downtown “haunts.” However, you won’t be scared by the ghosts of celebrities past like Huey Long, Louis Armstrong, Elvis, and more when you check into New Orleans’ newly refurbished Roosevelt Hotel.
We’re also introducing a new feature with our “Last Call” column on the last page, featuring a delicious Raspberry Truffletini courtesy of the mix masters at the Hotel Monteleone. If you enjoy our dessert recipes in “Last Bite,” don’t fret as we will alternate between drinks and sweets from issue to issue. Be sure to try the great pizza places Cary Chow sampled for us; they put the typical chain store brands to shame are the perfect meal to go with another Gulf Coast favorite—college football!
There’s a lot more packed into this issue so be sure to get your copy from local bookstores, Barnes & Noble, Books A Million, or—better yet—your own mail box! Subscribe now and save and with Christmas just around the corner, a year or two of Southern Breeze makes the perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite Gulf Coast lover!
