Saturday Matinee – Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes, Maceo Parker, & the Ghost Town Blues Band

Saturday, 4 April 2020

Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes (in 1985) with their 1976 hit “I Don’t Wanna Go Home.” The missus walked in while I was watching the vid and said, “Okay, so who’s the pirate?” That’s Miami Steve Van Zandt, – he wrote the song. SJ & the AJ had a great retro sound that was all but missing in the mid ’70s.

Maceo Parker makes it funky at the North Sea Jazz Festival, Rotterdam 2012. The badass backup:

Corey Parker, Martha High (backing vocals);
Lee Hogans (trumpet);
Troy ‘Trombone Shorty‘ Andrews (trombone);
Bruno Speight (guitar);
Will Boulware (keys);
Rodney “Skeet” Curtis (bass);
Marcus Parker (drums).

Ghost Town Blues Band picks up the Beatles’ Come Together and throws it right into the swamp, and then it’s Norwegian Wood meets Whole Lotta Love. Kinda matches my attitude these days.

Have a great weekend, folks. Go ahead, leave your house, get some fresh air and go wherever you want while it’s still legal. See you back here tomorrow for stuff.

Saturday Matinee – Louis in the Studio, Kid Ory & Trombone Shorty

Saturday, 7 May 2016

This exclusive video depicts Armstrong and his All Stars recording the master take of “I Ain’t Got Nobody,” as well as silent footage of them listening to the playback. Also featured in the clip are Trummy Young, trombone, Peanuts Hucko, clarinet, Billy Kyle, piano, Mort Herbert, bass and Danny Barcelona, drums.

I always thought Kid Ory came out of King Oliver’s Creole Jazz Band (along with Johnny Dodds, Baby Dodds and Louis Armstrong) but according to Wiki:

Ory had one of the best-known bands in New Orleans in the 1910s, hiring many of the great jazz musicians of the city, including cornetists Joe “King” Oliver, Mutt Carey, and Louis Armstrong, who joined the band in 1919; and clarinetists Johnny Dodds and Jimmie Noone.

So how ’bout some more in the same vein? Trombone Shorty’s tribute to Louis Armstrong ain’t bad, and he’s got one hell of a breathing trick.

[Confidential to Calo – That one’s for you. Condolences.]

Have a great weekend, folks, and be back here tomorrow for more, you know, stuff.

 

Saturday Matinee – The Sant Andreu Jazz Band, Tuba Skinny & Trombone Shorty

Saturday, 3 January 2015

The Sant Andreu Jazz Band is from Barcelona Spain, features 7-20 year olds. Here’s their website. I love early American jazz, and they nail it.

Some friends visited New Orleans recently, gave me a CD of Tuba Skinny. They didn’t believe that I’d heard of them even though I’d posted two of their vids some time ago. The girl on cornet is awesome, knows her chops.

Want some funk with that jazz? Here’s Trombone Shorty.

Have a great extended holiday weekend, folks. See y’all back here tomorrow.

 

Saturday Matinee – Farmer Derek Klingenberg, The Fire House Five+Two & Trombone Shorty

Saturday, 23 August 2014

Calling cows with a bovine ‘bone by Farmer Derek Klingenberg.

The Fire House Five (plus Two)  play “Red Hot River Valley” (1951). The band was made up of members of Disney’s animation department and were fairly successful.

Trombone Shorty on trumpet with “Hurricane Season” (2010)  This New Orleans funk jazz mix works.

That should hold you for a while. More stuff coming down the pipe, so see you tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – 5 lbs of Possum, Trombone Shorty & Blue Mother Tupelo

Saturday, 28 June 2014

“Five Pounds Of Possum” may be the greatest roadkill song ever.

Trombone Shorty (age 13?) kicks it at 01:20.

Serious Swamp Rock crankage from Blue Mother Tupelo.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow, and remember that all you have to do is cook out the bacteria.
