New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival: Sei heute live dabei!

Leider stellte ich gestern erst zu spät fest, dass der US-Rolling Stone Live-Streams vom großartigen New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival anbietet. Es geht am heutigen Sonntag (8. Mai 2011) zu Ende – es gibt also noch eine Nacht lang Gelegenheit, Ausschnitte zu erleben.

Das Festival war lange Zeit mein Lieblings-Musik-Event – ich hatte das Glück, es ab Mitte der ‘80er siebenmal hintereinander komplett zu erleben.

Remembering Willy DeVille

with 3 comments

I’m currently revisiting some of my favorite Willy DeVille songs – which remind me of a TV shoot I did with him in New Orleans in 1992, on the event of the German release of his album “Backstreets of Desire” (for the magazine “Das! Das Abendstudio” on the Northern German TV channel NDR). He had moved to the French Quarter around 1990 and recorded the album in the Big Easy (just like 1990’s “Victory Mixture”).

On the night before the shoot, I visited him and his wife Lisa at their home in the Quarter. Instead of doing the usual interview about the album, he suggested that we shoot him doing a tour of his favorite spots in New Orleans.
