Subject: Jimmy Dee - another great show
Well Jimmy I've been waiting a few days for the shows to get back on an it's great to hear your show on Irma Thomas,what a great talent.|
You mentioned in your show the influence of Allen Toussaint a major figure in the New Orleans scene since the 50's playing piano for Fats Domino,Smiley Lewis,Shirley & Lee plus his own music.But as an arranger,songwriter & producer his influence is huge.
I had the great pleasure of seeing him earlier this year on tour in the UK with Preservation Hall Jazz Orchestra.
How about a show about him Jimmy as he is largely unknown to most music lovers.
