A MUST HAVE for the serious Trad Jazz collection

weirdsisters

Ya gotta have this one! Amazing after nearly 50 years we can get this on download. I have one of the original LP's but its all scratchy now. This is THE quitessential San Francisco Jazz recording. Check out the title song, a protest song in the Dixieland Style. Who'd have thought? Vocalist Barbara Dane sings on this one as well as a few of the other cuts. Her smokey voice is one of the best I've ever heard. You won't be able to sit still listening to this record. Great musicians, great music, DOWNLOAD IT NOW. TRUST ME!

They Say All Music Guide

Nearly 14 years after he retired from music, trumpeter Lu Watters came out of retirement to musically protest the proposed building of a nuclear power plant on the San Andreas Fault. In addition to a few concerts with his former trombonist Turk Murphy, Watters recorded this lone Fantasy LP. After the nuclear project was shelved, Watters went back into permanent retirement. Surprisingly he is heard in prime form throughout this excellent set, leading a septet that also includes trombonist Bob Mielke, clarinetist Bob Helm, and pianist Wally Rose through such numbers as “Some of These Days,” “Emperor Norton’s Hunch,” and his new pieces “San Andreas Fault” and “Blues Over Bodega.” Blues singer Barbara Dane helps out a couple of songs. – Scott Yanow
