Well just returned from the Crescent City for a spur-of the moment week-end. Fats turned 80! I am closing my eyes.... Hung backstage with some lovely local heavy-weights and heard them play:

Randy Newman
Dr. John
Donald Harrison
Jon Cleary
Walter "Wolfman" Washington

Pictured are:

Stanton Moore: Rockstar drummer of Galactic, Stanton Moore trio

Fats Domino, Venessa Joseph Williams and my new best friend Nancy

NEW RADIO DOC PROJECT!! I am talking to people who have:

  • Re-located and are not returning to New Orleans
  • Re-located and ARE returning - or want to
  • Musicians who never left and would never dream of leaving.

If you fall into any of these categories and would like to be interviewed for a piece to be aired on Public Radio, let's talk y'all!
