FUNKY DRUMMER

Episode 757 is coming from the Radio Free Amsterdam studios in Detroit’s Cass Corridor, where I’m recovering this week from cataract surgery and paying homage to my friend, saxophonist, poet and composer Charles Neville of New Orleans’ Neville Brothers, or “Charlie the horn man” as his brother Aaron always called him, who passed away last week at the age of 79. We’ll hear music recorded with his band Diversity at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in the early 1990s, a new poem in his honor composed and recited by Don Paul, music by Roger Lewis with Kirk Joseph from a recent Charles Neville memorial at Sweet Lorraine’s in New Orleans, selections by Charles with the Harvey Diamond Quartet and the Workingman’s Jazz Band, my recording of his poem “History 101” with Wayne Kramer and the Blues Scholars, and three cuts by the Neville Brothers from their album Live On Planet Earth.

GO GET YOUR BIG CHIEF

I was at Unified Indian Practice at the Handa Wanda club at 2nd & Dryades on the evening of Sunday, January 27, 2008, when I decided to whip out my compact Olympus 320M digital recorder and take down the proceedings, which were centered on Big Chief Little Bo of the Wild Magnolias, Big Chief Roddy of the Black Eagles, and assorted Indian singers who took over the mike from time to time in front of the massive drum choir on the stage behind them. I recorded again the next Sunday, when it was “Two More Days” until Mardi Gras, and then chopped the results down to an hour’s worth of Wild Indian music recorded in context just before Carnival Day.
