Funky N'Awlins tips?

FreakyNewOrleansfilter: I'll be going to NOLA in March for four days. My travelling companion and I have never actually travelled together before (we usually spend all our time in his room, wink wink nudge nudge). I've gotten lots of tips/advice about lodging/activities/restaurants &etc. from previous AskMe threads, but here's the deal: I want to knock my companion's socks off with some kind of truly off-the-beaten-path, even-the-locals-don't-know-about-THIS thing.

Defend New Orleans: Lakeview v. ENOLA v. Algiers

Post-Katrina Recovery: I recently caught corners of Lakeview and New Orleans East. While Lakeview seemed more affluent and maybe older and more established, it didn't seem like it would have great advantages over NOE that would account for the relative degree to which it appeared that Lakeview was recovered compared to NOE. Is NOE really behind the curve in recovery and if so, why? [more inside]

O Holy Album

I've fallen in love with this rendition of "O Holy Night"[MP3] from last week's episode of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Now I want a whole Christmas album in that style - either already made or individual songs to make a mix. Any recommendations? I particularly like how the song is still totally recognizable and pleasant, despite having lots of soul to it and cool improvisations. Thanks!
