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

Ford’s new CEO promises investors more transparency, reports October sales declined 6.1%

first_imgCox Automotive expects U.S. vehicle sales for the year to be 14.3 million, a 16% decline from 2019 due to the coronavirus pandemic. – Advertisement – Ford spokesman Said Deep said the change is “about giving investors more frequent updates on U.S. sales and dealer inventory during the pandemic.” He said it’s expected to continue for the “foreseeable future.”In his first quarterly earnings call with analysts as CEO, Farley promised Wall Street greater transparency — something his predecessor, Jim Hackett, was criticized for not doing. Farley succeeded Hackett effective Oct. 1.“My commitment to each of you is transparency, including purposeful, measurable key performance indicators so you can objectively track our progress,” Farley told analysts on Oct. 28. – Advertisement –center_img Ford previously said switching to quarterly sales results would provide investors with a broader, more accurate report about the company’s sales. Toyota Motor, Honda Motor and others have continued to report sales on a monthly basis.Ford reported a 6.1% decline in U.S. light-duty vehicle sales last month compared to October 2019. That’s a wider loss than the industry, which experienced a slight uptick of 0.9% from a year earlier, according to Cox Automotive.Ford’s sales last month were hindered by declines in its passenger sedans, which the automaker has discontinued, as well as slides of 26.2% for its Transit vans and 4% for its popular F-Series pickups. Production of its pickups was impacted in part due to a factory overhaul to produce redesigned versions of its F-150 pickup. The decline in van sales was likely linked to reductions in fleet sales due to the coronavirus pandemic.  – Advertisement – Ford Motor will release its U.S. vehicle sales on a monthly basis as well as quarterly after the company’s new CEO Jim Farley promised Wall Street greater transparency.The decision comes more than a year after the Detroit automaker followed its crosstown rival, General Motors, in switching exclusively to quarterly sales reporting. Several other automakers, including Fiat Chrysler and Volkswagen, have since followed suit.- Advertisement –last_img read more

IHOC : Syracuse challenges potent Big Red offense with physical play in loss

first_imgAfter freshman forward Julie Knerr suffered a concussion on a late hit against in-state rival Cornell on Nov. 1, senior Megan Skelly and her Syracuse teammates were furious.The Orange players weren’t going to let the Big Red push them around — like it did when Cornell outshot SU 59-10 in that game two months ago — in a rematch between the teams on Tuesday. And they used the late hit on Knerr as motivation to match Cornell’s physicality all night on Tuesday.‘It obviously made us pretty pissed off,’ Skelly said. ‘But that’s what we used to fire ourselves up and build energy against them because you don’t want to let a team like that walk all over you. We weren’t going to make the same mistakes again.’Syracuse (8-14-2, 0-2-2 College Hockey America) came out playing aggressively and physically to keep the lethal offensive attack for No. 3 Cornell (16-2-0, 11-1-0 Eastern College Athletic Association) off balance. Although SU fell 6-3 to the Big Red, the slugfest was in many ways a confidence builder for the Orange after getting blown away by Cornell 9-2 in the first matchup.Before Tuesday’s game, SU head coach Paul Flanagan told his players they needed to fight ‘fire with fire’ if they wanted to compete with a nationally ranked opponent like the Big Red. His players listened and brought the heat right from the drop of the puck.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU was very active early in the game, making a statement that it could handle the physical intensity that overwhelmed the Orange in its first matchup with the Big Red.‘If you sit back and let a team with that much skill and speed come at you, it’s going to be a long night,’ Flanagan said. ‘So you have to go after them. Our defense was pretty active in getting to those corners and adding a physical element, as well as using their body to protect the puck.‘That’s something we didn’t do down there at Cornell (last game), and we let them push us around too much.’Led by strong, aggressive play from senior forward Lisa Mullan and freshman forward Shiann Darkangelo, the Orange made sure it wasn’t bullied this time around. The Orange played fearlessly against a stronger, more talented opponent, which helped SU keep the game close most of the way.With the game tied 1-1 midway through the second period, Mullan dove across the blue line and blocked a shot by Cornell, igniting excitement from the crowd and bringing the Syracuse bench to its feet. It was that type of aggressive play that Skelly said provided a boost of confidence for her team.That type of hustle play by Mullan along with a stellar effort on faceoffs by Darkangelo supported the SU defense as it held Cornell to three goals in the first two periods.‘The girls were scrappy tonight and fought so hard. They used their size to their advantage to protect the puck,’ said SU goaltender Kallie Billadeau, who made 28 saves in the loss.Darkangelo lined up for a majority of the faceoffs for SU, consistently using her size to snag the puck away from her opponent. She set a tone for the Orange by winning 21-of-30 faceoffs to give Syracuse possession time and time again.By winning the faceoff, the Orange kept the puck away from that persistent Big Red attack and held Cornell to 25 fewer shots than the previous meeting. Even if the Big Red still managed six goals, Syracuse displayed improvement from early in the season.As the buzzer sounded at the end of the game, SU was still intent on showing Cornell that it wasn’t going to be taken lightly. After several players fought for a loose puck as time expired, a Cornell player threw what appeared to be a punch in the direction of an SU player.And this time, Skelly and the Orange retaliated, starting a shoving match with the Cornell players to send a final message to the Big Red even in defeat.‘When our player gets punched in the face, we’re going to defend her no matter what, especially after last game,’ Skelly said. ‘We’re certainly not happy with the final score, but we proved to ourselves that we could compete with some of the top players in the country, and we took it to them.’[email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+ Commentscenter_img Published on January 17, 2012 at 12:00 pmlast_img read more
