Musical palate cleanser, big band blast edition

This one popped up on the music player yesterday and it’s a real kick.  It’s from a 2008 album of Tom Waits’ covers that Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes horn player Richie “La Bamba” Rosenberg put together called Grapefruit Moon.  Entitled “Down, Down, Down”, with Southside Johnny handling vocal and harmonica duties, this sucker just flat out sizzles from the get-go.

That ought to get you going this morning.

  1. I saw Tom Waits a couple of times at the Great Southeast Music Hall in the early 70s. Great entertainer. I believe he was opening for the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – or maybe Richie Havens or Asleep At The Wheel.

    Outstanding selection. Just added to the Gameday ’17 tailgate mix.
