An All-Star Tribute Album To Dr. John Will Soon Be Released; Watch Warren Haynes’ Contribution

first_imgThere’s no denying the musical legacy of Dr. John, as the New Orleans-based pianist has been a fixture for well over 50 years. Dr. John’s signature honky-tonk piano playing and gravelly voice has been an inspiration on every musician, as his unique swing continues to define a genre of music. It’s no wonder that an all-star group of artists came together to celebrate John in a 2014 concert, The Musical Mojo Of Dr. John.Now, that concert is finally being released as a CD/DVD combination on October 21st. With appearances from Allen Toussaint, Anders Osborne, Bill Kreutzmann, Bruce Springsteen, Charles Neville, Aaron Neville, George Porter Jr., Jason Isbell, Irma Thomas, John Fogerty, Jimmie Vaughan, Mavis Staples, Terence Blanchard, Widespread Panic, Zigaboo Modeliste and more, this was truly an all-star celebration.Among the many performers of the night was guitarist Warren Haynes, who paid tribute to Dr. John with a cover of his 2012 song “You Lie.” Says Haynes about the track, “For an artist of that caliber to still be putting out timeless music is pretty incredible.” The song certainly holds a candle to Dr. John’s famed body of work, as you can see in the brand new video that premiered today on Ultimate Classic Rock.You can find more information about the Dr. John tribute album/DVD release on Amazon.The Musical Mojo Of Dr. John: A Celebration Of Mac & His Music TracklistingDisc 1Right Place Wrong Time – Dr. John and Bruce Springsteen (4:30)Blow Wind Blow – Jason Isbell (3:47)My Indian Red – Cyril Neville (3:32)Somebody Changed the Lock – Anders Osborne and Bill Kreutzmann (3:11)Please Send Me Someone to Love – Dr. John, Aaron Neville and Charles Neville (6:04)Junko Partner – George Porter Jr. and Zigaboo Modeliste (5:14)Since I Fell for You – Irma Thomas (3:49)Stack-A-Lee – Tab Benoit (4:13)Life – Allen Toussaint (3:09)Street People – Shannon McNally (3:32)Goodnight Irene – Dave Malone (5:54)Big Chief – Big Chief Monk Boudreaux (5:23)Disc 2Familiar Reality – Widespread Panic (9:45)You Lie – Warren Haynes (6:34)Traveling Mood – Chuck Leavell (3:53)Back by the River – Ryan Bingham (4:29)Let’s Make a Better World – John Boutté (2:46)Lay My Burden Down – Mavis Staples (5:59)New Orleans – John Fogerty (3:43)Come Rain or Come Shine – Dr. John and Terence Blanchard (6:07)I Walk on Guilded Splinters – Dr. John and Sarah Morrow (7:02)Such a Night – Dr. John and Sarah Morrow (8:27)Blue-Ray/DVDDr. John Interview (Opening Sequence)Right Place Wrong Time – Dr. John and Bruce SpringsteenBlow Wind Blow – Jason IsbellMy Indian Red – Cyril NevilleSomebody Changed the Lock – Anders Osborne and Bill KreutzmannPlease Send Me Someone to Love – Dr. John, Aaron Neville and Charles NevilleJunko Partner – George Porter Jr. and Zigaboo ModelisteSince I Fell for You – Irma ThomasStack-A-Lee – Tab BenoitStreet People – Shannon McNallyGoodnight Irene – Dave MaloneBig Chief – Big Chief Monk BoudreauxDr. John InterviewFamiliar Reality – Widespread PanicYou Lie – Warren HaynesBack by the River – Ryan BinghamLet’s Make a Better World – John BouttéLay My Burden Down – Mavis StaplesNew Orleans – John FogertyCome Rain or Come Shine – Dr. John and Terence BlanchardI Walk on Guilded Splinters – Dr. John and Sarah MorrowSuch a Night – Dr. John and Sarah MorrowBonusLife – Allen ToussaintTraveling Mood – Chuck Leavelllast_img read more

Trojans come up short at the NCAAs

first_imgDespite high hopes and expectations, the USC track and field team failed to meet its set goals at the NCAA Track and Field Outdoor Championships, as the women’s team placed sixth and the men’s team placed 12th in the competition.Winner · Senior Nia Ali won the 2011 NCAA 100-meter hurdles with a personal record of 12.63 seconds. Ali’s performance gave the Women of Troy 10 points in the team competition, which put USC in sixth place at the track and field championships. – Photo courtesy of Sports Information The USC women’s team finished with 30 points, after not registering any points at NCAAs last year, and walked away from the week’s events with a sense of accomplishment. Not only did it place in the top 10, but it redeemed itself.After all, the results of last year’s NCAA competition for the Women of Troy were arguably anomalies. This was the same team that, during coach Ron Allice’s 17-season term at USC so far, had never gone scoreless at the NCAA competition.This year’s young team, made up mostly of freshmen, came back this year and proved its worth.“As a whole, we came off so strong,” senior Nia Ali said. “We did it basically with a team of freshman alone. I am just excited for the upcoming years. It was a big step up for freshmen and as a team as a whole.”For the men’s team, there was a bit less to celebrate. After consistently placing in the top 10 at the NCAA competition for the last six years, the Trojans’ streak was snapped as the team only managed to earn 18 points. Despite the 12th-place finish, the team has managed to score in the top 10 in 13 of Allice’s 17 seasons heading the program.The team’s 12th place finish was, to Allice, partially because of a lack of focus. Because most of the athletes will be returning for next season, there will be a chance for the team to redeem itself.The individual performances at the NCAA championship by USC athletes were noteworthy. Personal records were achieved and individual titles won. Eleven different USC athletes earned first team All-America honors during the four days of events.Hurdler and heptathlete Ali was one athlete in particular who was recognized, winning the 100-meter hurdles title at the competition with a wind-aided personal record of 12.63.“I don’t even know what I was feeling after [the race],” Ali said. “You never know what to expect in such an unpredictable race.”Ali also earned sixth place in the high jump.Senior Brendan Ames performed well in the 100-meter hurdles, earning third place in the final heat. Ames finished just 0.01 seconds behind the second-place finisher with a wind-aided personal record of 13.34.Top performances on the men’s team included senior Trey Henderson, who earned fourth place in the hammer throw, and junior Cooper Thompson, who placed ninth in javelin.Junior Aareon Payne and freshman Jessica Davis also placed in the 200-meter, finishing in fifth and eighth place, respectively.“I felt everyone equally contributed,” Ali said. “We had [personal records] everywhere. It wasn’t just one specific area, but obviously the sprinters and throwers played a big role.”last_img read more
