YouTube du Jour: Luke Winslow-King


Luke Winslow-King‘s third album, The Coming Tide, has been available at Louisiana Music Factory since Jazz Fest time, but this past week it was officially released to digital outlets, and a release party took place at Yuki on Sunday. The record, featuring singer Esther Rose, showcases Winslow-King’s adept combination of traditional jazz, blues, gospel, and folk. Recorded at Piety Street with Earl Scioneaux, the tracks place the vocal harmonies from the two singers next to Winslow-King’s slide and acoustic guitar playing, acoustic bass from Cassidy Holden, and occasional solos from Frenchmen Street regulars like Bruce Brackman, Rick Trolsen and Ben Polcer.

This new video is for the album’s second track, “Moving On,” a languid trad jazz tune with excellent contributions from Polcer on trumpet and piano. Winslow-King flies to Europe for a string of shows soon, but he’ll be back in New Orleans for a month-long Thursday residency at Three Muses beginning July 19.
