All gross proceeds from the concert will benefit the Oceti Sakowin Camp. The Oceti Sakowin Camp is a historic gathering of Native nations, friends and allies, from all walks of life standing in solidarity to halt the Dakota Access Pipeline.

“Just as we give thanks for our good fortune and the bounty of our lives as Americans, let us thank the Native people who are gathered here at Standing Rock to protect the natural world and defend our place in it,” said Jackson Browne.

“I’m proud to be standing in support of the courageous and dedicated Water Protectors at Standing Rock. This movement is growing by the day with solidarity actions happening around the country, yet the media isn’t covering it nearly enough. Our hope is that this concert will help bring more awareness and media attention to the issues being raised at Standing Rock, and to put pressure on The Obama Administration to halt construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline until protection of sacred sites is ensured,” said Bonnie Raitt.

“We are honored to have these great artists stand with us!” says Ladonna. Those who can travel to North Dakota are invited to Stand in Solidarity with Standing Rock on Sunday, November 27, 2016 at Prairie Knights Pavilion at 6:30 PM.

Jackson Browne Tribute Album

Jackson Browne is a remarkable singer/songwriter. I innately identify with Jackson Browne’s expression of male pathos.

I discovered him in 1972 when Asylum Records released his first solo album,  Jackson Browne (Saturate Before Using)I own one of the the initial pressings of the vinyl LP with a textured cover that had a burlap-like feel to further the water bag theme.

I ended up acquiring a slew of Jackson Browne’s subsequent recordings. They have provided many hours of solace in the music of our heart.

I am heartened to discover that Jackson Browne will be honored with his first ever tribute album, “Looking Into You: A Tribute to Jackson Browne”. It is fitting that Kelcy Warren’s Music Road Records of Austin, Texas brings this star-filled two disc recording to market. Austin is the Music Capital of the World. Jackson Browne’s canon serves as bedrock foundation for Austin’s version of the American Songbook. The tribute album has a strong representation of Austin residents (past and present), Lyle Lovett, Lucinda Williams, Shawn Colvin, Bob Schneider, Kevin Welch, Eliza Gilkyson and Jimmy LaFave.

Couple the Austin crowd with such luminary fans/friends as Don Henley, Bruce Springsteen and Pattie Scialfa, Bonnie Raitt with David Lindley and Ben Harper you have a standout recording.

The cover photograph features the piano where Jackson Browne learned to play as a child.

Look for this recording becoming available on April 1, 2014.

John Lee Hooker – Daily Post 2011 #13

Cover of "Healer"
Cover of Healer

John Lee Hooker created the “talking blues” style. His improvisational method accompanied by his growling deep voice endeared him to his fans and musicians alike. Two songs he was very known for are, “Boogie Chillen” and “Boom Boom“.

One of my favorite John Lee Hooker collaborations is the The Healer, which was recorded in 1989 with Carlos Santana and Ms. Bonnie Raitt, to name a few. The Healer brought John Lee Hooker a whole new generation of music fans. The title song has such staying power 21 years afterward.

I was fortunate to see John Lee Hooker open for Santana on October 14, 1970 at the Capitol Theater in Portchester, NY. He held the concert hall spell-bound when he did One Burbon, One Scotch and One Beer as his encore.

Van Morrison also recorded with John Lee Hooker on several recordings, such as Never Get Out of these Blues Alive, “The Healing Game” and “I Cover the Waterfront“.
