    sweet Emma proves that true entertainment is not about looks and being young and sexy. It's about talent and heart and soul and towing along with it , is enlightenment ,which only comes to those with a sense of humor. i don't think I'll ever tire of hearing Emma sing this Jellyroll song!

    I recall sitting in the front row (on the floor) watching her in 1971 - ocassionally eating a few crackers she kept wrapped up in a napkin on the piano.
    Even though my interests (then) was on the nightlife outside - I couldn't help but be overwhelmed by this icon - no beauty - just a wonderful talented woman who personified all that the old New Orleans jazz scene was about. I wouldn't trade those few moments for anything.... Bless her!

    You silly fools with you standards, that's how she's supposed to look like! Back then 60-years actually looked there age, or aged gracefully, not cosmetically.

    Wow, nostalgia kicks in. I was introduced to Emma in Preservation Hall in 1978. She was only playing with one hand on account of having had a stoke. I wish I could play that good with two hands. She said "He's got a beard, I don't like men with beards!", Next time I met her she said "You know, I was only joking about that beard".
    I don't think the rich and powerful in the city appreciate what a treasure they had in musicians like Sweet Emma

    Thank you for this wonderful video of
    Sweet Emma Barrett. I was in New Orleans
    in 1977 and saw her at Preservation Hall.
    This lady was in a wheel chair by that time
    and someone rolled her up to the piano and
    she was outstanding. I'll always cherish
    that memory. Thank you for keeping her
    memory alive. God bless her.
