It's fitting that World Cafe ends its Sense Of Place visit to Lafayette, La., with a performance from Sonny Landreth. The inventive and unpredictable slide-guitar player is a longtime Lafayette resident and a perfect ambassador for the city's music. Landreth's first sideman gig was with zydeco king Clifton Chenier, and several of his songs — like "Congo Square" — have become Louisiana standards.
