James Booker- One Hell of a Nerve

No more nerves.

Ostensibly recorded in Germany thirty years ago, King of the New Orleans Keyboard finds James Booker in fine form. He plays a ton of piano, delivers a distinctive yodel in the song's hook and offers anecdotal asides to his lucky audience. Booker was the clear spiritual heir of Fats Waller.

My photographs and musings from yesterday's performance by Kansas City cult favorites BCR are Plastic Sax.

My review of last night's Art Garfunkel show is here.

Kansas City Click: Centro-Matic headlines a four-band bill that also includes OK Jones tonight.

Negro Scoe is among the Fringe Festival's performers on Saturday.

Come Sunday, I'll be at the Beaumont for Musiq Soulchild and Chrisette Michele.
