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

Iowa K-12 schools may grade, give credits for online courses

first_imgDES MOINES — Some of Iowa’s K-12 students may soon be required to participate in online classes during school closures related to the COVID-19 pandemic.The Iowa Department of Education will fast-track requests from school districts and non-public schools for what the agency calls “continuous learning” plans.“We all know how important it is for Iowa students to continue to learn during the COVID-19 emergency,” Iowa Department of Education director Ann Lebo says. “…Even though schools are not required to offer learning opportunities when they are closed, they are certainly able and encouraged to do so as they consider the needs of the families and the learners they serve.”The new guidelines allow schools to issue grades for homework and to give students this semesters’ credits for courses completed online. Schools must consider how all students may access online courses.“The role of the Department of Education is to ensure we maintain a minimum standard of care,” Lebo says, “while allowing the maximum opportunity for growth through flexibility at the local level.”Some Iowa school districts are delivering homework packets to students. Lebow says others are providing one electronic device to each student and finding ways to ensure all students have access to WiFi.“Innovation at this time of uncertainty is important,” Lebo says.Governor Kim Reynolds has recommended that schools close through April 12th. However, it’s likely Iowa schools will remain closed for the entire month of April. Last night, President Trump extended federal social distancing guidelines until April 30th.last_img read more
