New Orleans Music: Hugh Laurie and Tom Jones Sing Baby Please Make a Change – Video

Lover of New Orleans music Hugh Laurie came to the French Quarter in 2011 to perform with Allen Toussaint, Irma Thomas and Tom Jones. This was a live performance for PBS to promote his newest CD Let Them Talk.

Not only an accomplished actor (who stared on the hit show House) and comedian but he’s an accomplished musician as well. His heroes are the greats of Jazz and Blues, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, Jerry Lee Lewis among many others. In this clip he and his friend Tom Jones sing Baby Please Make A Change.

I saw this program earlier this year and was impressed not only with Laurie’s love of the city but his talent for expressing that love through his music and performance. Hey, Hugh, why don’t you come back. A few of us would like to see more of you performing around town, you belong here.

Leave a COMMENT. What do you think?
