Options October 4, 2005: Me & Tom DeLay
*****DeLay-- known as the Hammer, for his not-too-subtle approach to politics-- was recently indicted by Travis County DA Ronnie Earle. I got "indicted" by the same Ronnie Earle, back in 1973 or so, when I was living in Austin. He was Justice of the Peace back then and I got busted (along with a bunch of others) for attacking an ROTC Parade with squirt guns. I paid my debt to society-- and now I am a law abiding citizen, give or take.

Artist Track Comments
Big Guitars from Texas  Groovus   Options Another Rick Rawls tune 
Cornell Dupree  Bag's Groove   Options Dupree does Milt Jackson's vibes a la guitar on "Dupree's Bop 'n Blues" on Kokopelli (1995); that was the label that Herbie Mann-- who died last year-- started in Santa Fe, NM, in the 90s 
Yerba Buena  Wassamatter Baby   Options from "President Alien" (Razor & Tie, 2003) 
Tribalistas  Tribalistas   Options This Brazilian trio-- Marisa Monte, Carlinhos Brown, Arnaldo Antunes-- made a great self-titled album in 2003. This is the title cut 
Flora y Fauna  What's Up Samba   Options A nice early morning electronica groove, from Swiss DJ Sasha Crnobrnja & Fa Ventilato; on the "Latin Travels 2" compilation 
Jimmy Yancey  Lean Bacon   Options Yancey worked as a groundkeeper for the White Sox but in Chicago they knew he was one of the best boogie woogie pianists ever; from "Master of Boogie" on Milan Jazz/BMG France 
Roy Smeck  Guitarese   Options From around the same time; on Yazoo Records, "Roy Smeck Plays Hawaiian Guitar, Banjo, Ukulele and Guitar" (1992) 
Roy Smeck  Nifty Pickin'   Options I thought it was a banjo but maybe it's a uke. Either way, good pickin' 
Link Wray  Shawnee Tribe   Options This guy can play guitar too. Acadia put out a CD with 3 Liink Wray albums from the 70s 
Norman Blake  Down at Mylow's House   Options Rounder put out this compilation album last year: "Come to the Mountain: Old Time Music for Mordern Times" with a stellar lineup of contemporary players

Henri Rene and his orchestra  Oh, Lady Be Good   Options This George & Ira Gershwin tune has over 1000 versions, according to allmusic.com. Henri Rene gives it a fresh feel 
Sly & Robbie w/ Neville Hinds  Good, Bad and the Ugly   Options These Jamaican dubsters can do something with anything; on "Mambo Taxi" (Island, 1997) 
Bettye Lavette  Only TIme Will Tell   Options Bettye had some minor soul hits in the 60s; here she covers a bunch of modern women songwriters, on "I've Got My Own Hell to Raise" (Epitaph, 2005). This tune written by Toni Brown, formerly with Joy of Cooking, now a San Francisco regular 
Baby Washington  I'm On the Outside (Looking In)   Options Baby Washington began in the 50s and, like Bettye Lavette, can still belt 'em out. This song written by Teddy Randazzo. From "I've Got a Feeling...The Best of Baby Washington" (EMI/Stateside, 2005) 
Barbara Dane w/ The Chambers Brothers  It Isn't Nice   Options Left wing folkie with friends, now out on Smithsonian Folkways (2005). A Malvina Reynolds tune

Bob Dylan  It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry   Options "I wanna be your lover, baby; I don't wanna be your boss" 
Don Cherry  Trumpet   Options Don Cherry's 1988 "Multikulti" album on A&M is a breathtaking mix of jazz and spoken word, rich and clever in sound and substance. 
Don Cherry  MultiKulti Soothsayer   Options Cherry died in 1995, not yet 60. In his 20s, he started out with Ornette Coleman and, for the next four decades, made some of the most interesting music around

Mickey & Sylvia  Soulin' with Mickey & Sylvia   Options Mickey Baker played blues guitar as good as anyone; Sylvia Robinson has class and vocal skills. This 1969 instrumental is from the Willow Sessions. 
Dave Soldier & the Kropotkins  The Nasadiya   Options Always interesting, Soldier put this band together more than a decade ago and they have done some amazing work. 
Calexico/Iron & Wine  Red Dust   Options A nice mix of southwestern melody and Sam Beam's sophisticated lyrics. On Overcoat Recordings out of Chicago, 2005 
Jimmie Dale Gilmore  Jimmie Brown the Newsboy   Options A tribute to his dad's favorites, Jimmie cover the country classics this time around on "Come On Back" (Rounder, 2005) 
Jet Weston  WFMU #1   Options Engineer, producer, guitarist. Weston sent WFMU a nice CD of jingles and instrumentals. 
Willie Nelson  Healing Hands of Time   Options Willie wrote and recorded dozens of great songs in the 60s, before he abandoned Nashville for Austin. This is one of them 
Ronnie Earl  Drowning in My Own Tears   Options Sax by David Fathead Newman, guitar by former Roomful of Blues Ronnie Earl-- not the Austin DA who nabbed Tom DeLay 
Steve Earle  My Old Friend the Blues   Options No relation, I assume, to the DA-- although Steve Earle grew up in San Antonio 
Ry Cooder & Lalo Guerrero  Los Chucos Suaves   Options Remake of Lalo's 1949 hit for Imperial, on "Chavez Ravine" (Nonesuch, 2005). Lalo Guerrero died shortly after recording this muy caliente tune 
Ry Cooder w/ Juliette & Carla Commgere  Chinito Chinito   Options "Chavez Ravine" tells the story of the Chicano neighborhood in LA that was bulldozed to build a baseball stadium for the Dodgers 
Cubanismo  Meta y Guaguanco   Options This 1996 Rykodisk CD was called "Jesus Alemany's Cubanismo" although later albums were simply called Cubanismo 
Los Hombres Calientes  Corcovado/Nocturnal Low Moan   Options Here's this versatile New Orleans band playing Jobim-- from their "New Congo Square" album (Basin Street, 2001) 
Ferrante & Teicher  Oye Negra   Options Irwin Chusid snuck this into the Ernie Kovacs Record Collection CD (Varese Sarabande, 1997)-- and, although it ain't Ernie, it works 
Devotchka  The Enemy Guns   Options From "How It Ends" (Cicero, 2004). Erika Gaeta turned me on to this 
Frank Stokes  I Got Mine   Options Poor fidelity doesn't obscure the fact that this is a great song! From "Good for What Ails You" (Old Hat, 2005) 
Hobart Smith  What Did the Buzzard Say to the Crow?   Options Old time mountain music, recorded in 1963; recently released on CD by Smithsonian Folkways 
Hobart Smith  Soldier's Joy   Options Banjo classic 
Clint Eastwood  I Talk to the Trees   Options Okay, the song is lousy. But it's Clint. And Doug Shulkind put it on his marathon premium-- all songs about being crazy. I had to play it 
Dinah Washington  Teach Me Tonight   Options A lot of people covered this Sammy Kahn tune but Dinah does it as good as any
