RIP Lionel Batiste
Keith Spera had an obituary of him at nola.com that I am linking, http://www.nola.com/music/index.ssf/2012/07/uncle_lionel_batiste_treme_bra.html
The image at the top was taken at a salute to him 15 years ago during jazzFest at the Funky Butt. The image at the bottom was taken at the 2005 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
