Replete with between-the-cracks rhythms and a sensual, funk-soaked horn arrangement, this track off Toussaint's seminal Life, Love and Faith album concerns itself with the fate of the folks he sings about on "Night People," a tune he recorded a few years prior that remains a local favorite among New Orleans musicians. 

After his father died when Jefferson was a teen, the future president inherited the Shadwell property. In 1768, Jefferson began clearing a mountaintop on the land, in preparation for the elegant brick mansion he would construct there called Monticello (“little mountain” in Italian). Jefferson, who had a keen interest in architecture and gardening, designed the home and its elaborate gardens himself. Over the course of his life, he remodeled and expanded Monticello and filled it with art, fine furnishings and interesting gadgets and architectural details. He kept records of everything that happened at the 5,000-acre plantation, including daily weather reports, a gardening journal and notes about his slaves and animals.

The name Haiti (or Hayti ) comes from the indigenous Taíno language which was the native name [note 2] given to the entire island of Hispaniola to mean, "land of high mountains." [35] The h is silent in French and the ï in Ha ï ti , is a diacritical mark used to show that the second vowel is pronounced separately, as in the word na ï ve . [36] In English, this rule for the pronunciation is often disregarded, thus the spelling Haiti is used. There are different anglicizations for its pronunciation such as HIGH-ti, high-EE-ti and haa-EE-ti, which are still in use, but HAY-ti is the most widespread and established. [37]
