Another gem by the great one of New Orleans, Allen Toussaint, describing his meeting with Frankie Miller who recorded in New Orleans back in the early '70s. Mr. Toussaint wrote seven songs for Frankie's killer second album, "High Life." Three Dog Night took it out for a spin as well in 1974 with just a bit of success.

Got to see and talk it up with the 'Hawks last night at the Bradfordville Blues Club. Mark Wenner was kind enough to sign and add quite the self-caricature to an old Nighthawks' album cover from the '80s. I thanked him for the solid blues over the many years and he offered that he's been at it for over 40 years now. That's a legacy and then some. Johnny Castle was kind enough to take time out to "talk bass" with Evan, even suggested that Evan check in with him periodically to continue the discussion. Already knew that Mark's as good as it gets on harmonica and last night, he, Johnny on bass, Paul Bell on guitar and Mark Stutso on drums left no doubt what it's about, none whatsoever...

Has to be a good one if I'm offering it as a shout out to the L'Man, this one is from Lafayette, Louisiana, an old favorite of mine recorded when eTown was out on the road recently. It's a very nice combination of slide and acoustic, easier said than done for many musicians. If Nick Forster says Landreth's the baddest and the best, well who am I to argue, kind of like Steve Layman's blogspot...
