The Basin Street Blues Songfacts tells us that Basin Street is a section of New Orleans, in Louisiana, which is a thoroughfare running through the Storyville Quarter. The area earned a name in the early days of jazz music as being a hub for jazz and blues singers and bands to make a name for themselves. Basin Street was where the red lights district was located - and where Louis got his start.
