YouTube du Jour: Ike Stubblefield

Hammond B3 player Ike Stubblefield got his start as part of the Motown Revue in 1968, and he has spent his career since playing with a musical who’s who on the road or in the studio. Recently, he was in town to play organ on Ruthie Foster‘s Let It Burn (recorded at Piety Street Studios), and on Saturday he’ll be part of Walter “Wolfman” Washington’s “Afunkalypse” at the Krewe du Vieux Doo (tickets on sale now at Louisiana Music Factory, Petcetera, Up in Smoke on Magazine Street and other outlets listed on the KdV site). Tonight, Stubblefield will play a trio gig at Snug Harbor with Herlin Riley and Detroit Brooks (shows at 8 and 10 p.m.). Here’s footage of Stubblefield in action.
