GOV'T MULE - DEJA VOODOO

In 2005, "Déjà Voodoo" announced the new line-up of Gov't Mule. Warren Haynes and Matt Abts were joined by Danny Louis (keyboards) and Any Hess (bass) on a permanent basis.

An excellent album.

"Déjà Voodoo" has seen a couple of different editions. The one that I have is a 2CD set with a 5-track bonus album "Live In Chicago". Beautiful.
And there's also a version that comes with a bonus EP called "Mo' Voodoo"...

Anyway, a soulful album by southern rock jam band Gov't Mule.
Give it a listen.



SHISHANI AND NAMIBIAN TALES

I caught Shishani and Namibian Tales performing "Kalahari Encounters" at the Plusetage in Baarle Nassau, NL, a couple of months ago.
Here's another snippet. This time from the Afrika Festival in Hertme, NL.




FABRIZIO CASSOL, SERGE KAKUDJI & RODRIGUEZ VANGAMA - COUP FATAL

On "Coup Fatal", Fabrizio Cassol (musical direction) added Congolese countertenor Serge Kakudji to 13 traditional musicians from Kinshasa to perform a number of baroque inspired compositions.

Interesting.
I would have loved to hear Fabrizio participate on the sax...

Spoonfish will be releasing another track from their upcoming album.
'The Hammer' is a stomping blues rock ditty that features Craig 'Twister' Steward on harmonica. You might know Twister from his contributions to Frank Zappa's "Joe's Garage" and "The Man From Utopia".

'The Hammer' got recorded at the Spoonfish Studio in Amsterdam and was mastered at SoundLAB in New Jersey, USA. It will be released through all digital platforms on September 30.
