Roots & Branches 42: Germaine Bazzle Special



The great musician, singer, and educator Germaine Bazzle is another wonder of New Orleans. At age 87 she performs two sets every Sunday with her 21st-century band of Larry Sieberth piano, Peter Harris bass, and Simon Lott drums. Join us in our first hour with her as Germaine tells of her childhood in the 7th Ward and the then-new Lafitte housing projects—“Tennis, Swimming, Second-Lines”—to her student days at Xavier prep and learning to scat from ebop instrumentals and her first gigs. She sings “One of Those Things”, “Route 66”, “Mood Indigo” and “There Is No Greater Love.” We also hear Bunk Johnson, Sidney Bechet, Papa Celestine, Ella Fitzgerald with the Chick Webb Orchestra, Charlie Parke’s Re-Boppers, J.J. Johnson, Woody Herman’s Third Herd, Stan Getz, Carmen McRae, and June Christy.

John Sinclair Radio Show 799: Cadillac Jack


Episode 799 is coming from my New Orleans headquarters at the Zotz Coffeeshop on Oak Street, my last broadcast from the Crescent City for this trip. Next week I’ll be in Denver with Tom Worrell, and then back in Detroit on April 2nd for Opening Day at Tiger Stadium and the Hash Bash weekend in Ann Arbor. But for now I’m going to start with a set by the great trio of Walter “Wolfman” Washington, Joe Krown & Russell Batiste Jr
that plays at the Malpe Leaf Bar here on Oak Street on most Sunday nights with a set kicked off by a house crawfish boil, commemorated in our opening track recorded live at the Leaf. Then we’ll pay a lengthy tribute to the recently departed giant of American music, Andre Williams, who passed away in Chicago this week at the age of 82. He was a dear friend, mentor, and producer of my first blues album, The Delta Sound, 20 years ago.
