Bonerama: Shake It Baby (Independent)

Don’t look now, but Bonerama has turned into a full-fledged rock band. True that classic rock was always in them, and there’s a Zeppelin or Sabbath cover on all four of their previous discs. But in the past, the rock was just part of an eclectic mix of brass-band, jazz, funk and out-there jam elements. [...]

Sonia Tetlow, Own Way Home (Threadhead Records)

Sonia Tetlow was the second of four female singer/bassists to join Cowboy Mouth in remarkably quick succession, and she’s now the second (after Mary Lasseigne) to make a solo album.

Since leaving Cowboy Mouth, he has taken the opportunity to present his tunes without the volume and bombast of his former band’s arena rock. Here on Reclamation of the Pie-Eyed Piper, [...]

Voodoo Experience Highlight: Bonerama featuring Dave Malone

New Orleans is full of musicians who epitomize the genre-busting goal of turning old school New Orleans music into an egalitarian mash-up, and no one has done more to realize this goal than Mark Mullins. The suave trombonist paid his dues in the tradition, earning his funk stripes playing in bassist George Porter, Jr.’s band [...]

YouTube du Jour: Wardell Quezergue

Here is the tribute video that Robbie Denny and Donna Schlaudecker created in his honor, focusing on Quezergue’s “Creole Mass” project. Here’s a second video with Quezergue, this from a recording session for After the Math: The St. Agnes [...]
