John Sinclair Radio Show: Hail King Zulu

John Sinclair Radio Show: Hail King Zulu

Episode 692 is coming again this week from the splendid studio apartment of Christian Greer and his partner Michelle in the western part of Amsterdam where I’ve very graciously been taken in for another week before I get ready to leave for New Orleans from Paris on Valentine’s Day. Picking Mardi Gras music is always a high point of my year and while searching my files I found an album I’ve never played before called Mardi Gras: The Language of New Orleans, Volume 7 with a whole selection of Mardi Gras tunes by Wardell Quezergue & His Slammin’ Big Band, the Rebirth Brass Band, Al Jackson, Sammy Ridgely, the Storyville Stompers, Sunpie Barnes, Smokey Greenwell, the New Orleans Rhythm & Blues Company, Edward Anderson, Bart Ramsey & Neti Vaan, Sweet Kathleen & The Vieux Carre Band, and Kelly Thibodeaux & Etouffee. So here they are! And next week: Here Come The Indians Now!
