RIP bounce rap artist 5th Ward Weebie. I think there’s a second line for him tonight

Had been in the hospital for a bit. Not sure what happened. Twitter was showing scheduled nightly vigils for him in the hope that he would recover

RIP Lucien Barbarin, trombonist for Harry Connick Jr, Preservation Hall, great-nephew of Paul Barbarin, etc.

I'll be there at the end of the month for a friend's wedding (currently working on booking a brass band, of course), and then back the next weekend to play the 2nd annual brass band festival: http://nolabrassfest.com/

A 2019 movie doc called Up From the Streets , that purports to cover all of New Orleans music history is gonna show at a DC indie doc fest in March. Terrence Blanchard is the narrator.

Don’t usually agree with them but here’s Offbeat magazine’s best of 2019 that includes Soul Rebels “Poetry in Motion” album as their best brass band winner. Rebels also won for best video

Two weekends in a row of second lines and seeing all the bands, it was amazing, too much to say. NOLA Brass Fest was a really beautiful event this year.

Putting this here because no one else will care: a few months ago I picked up a $1.99 copy of Doc Cheatham and Nicholas Payton (on Verve, 1997) and man I love this. It helps that I saw Doc at Jazzfest around that time, but it’s a super lovely mix of ballads and swingin’ tunes, with my new favorite version of “Stardust.” I’ve returned to it again and again. Best two bucks spent recently.

That sounds great

curmudgeon, Saturday, 28 March 2020 05:03 (yesterday) link

I didn’t know there’s a Grammy for best jazz solo, but Doc won it in 1998 for his solo on “Stardust.”
