I have a new CD, Podge Hodge, that’s a little different for me.
It’s my 17th CD, and the first half is comprised of tracks from CDs I don’t sell any longer for whatever reason. I’m curating myself here.
The last 11 tracks are cuts I’ve tweaked from old CDs, or (mostly) tracks never before issued. The cast is marvelous: Evan Christopher, the New Orleans Nightcrawlers, Connie Jones, Meschiya Lake and other fine New Orleanians.
It is available ONLY at the Louisiana Music Factory, Euclid Records, and at my gigs.
Thanks for supporting New Orleans music!
