Tom’s Season Three Appearance in Treme

On Sunday, October 21 I’ll have an appearance on HBO’s “Treme.”  Producer Eric Overmyer gave me my choice of duet partners and I picked cornetist Connie Jones.  The 78-year-old hornman is the favorite of many trad fans in the area; he’s had a long history dating back to the early 50s that includes work with the great Jack Teagarden. The tune we’re playing is “Kermit’s Rag,” which I wrote 35 years ago and is named not after K.Ruffins, but rather my brother, Dan “Kermit” McDermott.  Connie and I have a duet CD on Arbors Records called “Creole Nocturne,” which you may or not find at the Louisiana Music Factory.  Hope you enjoy our little blast of trad energy!
