Podcast #56: Sounds from The Big Easy


Preservation Hall

A Big hi-yo from the Crescent City from your favorite podcast, Shady Groove! NOLA is a wonderful city filled with beautiful people, many longstanding traditions, great music, and of course, great food. Crawfish pie, Seafood Gumbo, Jambalaya, Pralines, PoBoy’s, Beignets, Étouffée…. The list goes on and on. The food was decadent. The music was prevalent. Culturally, the music of NOLA has inspired many musicians throughout the world with its african rhythms, jazz standards, horn sections; a veritable melting pot of wonderful sounds. The streets are still filled with subtle sounds of trumpets and trombones and amazing folky-street-jug-bands trying to make a name for themselves and keep the music alive. I think I speak for most when I say that I had a great time in your city and I plan to come back real soon. Here’s to ‘lettin the good times roll’ in the Big Easy!

This weeks podcast included these delightfully playful, sonically pleasing musical tracks:

Dr. John – Let The Good Times Roll ++ Harry Nilsson – Let The Good Times Roll ++ Preservation Hall Jazz Band & The Del McCoury Band – Jambalaya ++ The Meters – Cissy Strut ++ Leon Russell – Delta Lady ++ Mason Porter – Delta Queen ++ Trombone Shorty – Dumaine St. ++ Phish – Gumbo (live 7.17.91) ++ Johnny Cash – Big River (live @ San Quentin ’69) ++ Creedence Clearwater Revival – Born On The Bayou ++ Johnny Jenkins – Walk On Guilded Splinters ++ Bruce Springsteen – Eyes On The Prize ++ The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – Mr. Bojangles ++ King Curtis – Mr. Bojangles ++ Taj Mahal – Fishin’ Blues ++ The Gourds – Foggy Blossom (mechanical bride)

They’re Back

I gotta say, I’m impressed. The good old boys from Vermont just completed thier monstrous 3 night reunion in Hampton, Va. The event , 3 sold out shows left many fans more than elated. After proclaiming “We’re done” in 2004 after a farewell festival in Coventry, VT for 65,000, they were back. And back with a vengance. We all knew they would be. I think its great that now they are looking for a 2 phase to thier career as the pioneering jam band with Trey even proclaiming backstage that “they are trying to create a formula to keep playing for a long time.” They also have studio time booked to begin working on a new album.

In addition, for the Allman’s 40th anniversary run at the Beacon last night, Page and Trey appeared to lend their musical sound to the classics Southbound, I Know You Rider, and Elizabeth Reed.

So here’s a little taste of what went down this past weekend, and probably a taste of whats to come on this tour. Light one up, sit back, and enjoy. They are definitely back.
