This sad news from today's paper:
Composer, arranger, bandleader, producer, and teacher Wardell Quezergue,
81, who arranged "Chapel of Love" for the Dixie Cups and was dubbed the
"Creole Beethoven" by Allen Toussaint, has died. He died Tuesday of congestive
heart failure, said son Brian Quezergue.
For those of you who attended the 2010 ARSC Conference in New Orleans - you
got to see and hear Wardell on the NOLa Legends panel. BTW, the Session
with him is on the ARSC Web site.
Here is link to more details from his obit.
