Chris Smither returns with ‘More Fom the Levee’ on vinyl on September 26th and CD/digital on October 2nd including this wonderful track featuring the late, great Allen Toussaint.
In a town known worldwide for its music, Toussaint’s name was among the rarified cultural bastions of the city, along with James Booker, Professor Longhair, Dr. John and Louis Armstrong.
This week is packed full of blues happenings, from birthdays to a handful of New Orleans Blues milestones to Chicago and Hill Country blues luminaries!
Returning for it’s 3rd season, the story revolves around a colorful cast of New Orleans characters, with a second-to-none soundtrack of blues, jazz, and heavy brass.
The piano music that came from New Orleans played a preeminent role in the development of Jazz, Blues, and Rock music, and it’s legacy and rhythms continue to this day.
Dr. John is one of the most internationally celebrated musicians to come from New Orleans. After a half century of creating music, he’s still running fast and strong.
