Season 4 - Episode 424

click for larger image It’s the blues edition! First, we meet one of the biggest musical names to come out of Baton Rouge and known throughout the nation - Grammy-nominated bluesman Kenny Neal. He tells us why he decided to move back to his hometown and about carrying on the music legacy of his father, harpist Raful Neal. Next, we meet Blues Hall-of-Famer Lazy Lester, originally from West Feliciana Parish, and who now resides in California. Only a handful of people know as much as Lazy Lester does about the early days of blues in the Capital City. He tells us how being in the right place at the right time launched his blues career. Kenny Neal and Lazy Lester play the blues for us and reminisce about the good old days including their experiences with the Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, and others.

Plus, we’ll hear how California artist Rufus Chalmers draws on jazz to create his paintings.
