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

A better way to pay consumers: Making the move to digital disbursements

first_imgSometimes life simply moves too fast for paper checks and other slower payment options. Businesses that send payments to consumers are well aware of this reality, yet nearly half of all consumer disbursements made each year– insurance claims, rewards, rebates, refunds – are still made by check, according to an Aite Group study.Paying vast numbers of customers, workers and business partners quickly, securely and efficiently is challenging, and in many cases existing processes have evolved to fit specific needs and requirements. Payments must be accurate, be able to be tracked and reconciled, and be optimized for companies’ unique needs. The insurance industry in particular requires the ability to make multiparty payments to people with different accounts. Almost all businesses, from those in traditional industries to members of the gig economy, find it’s increasingly necessary to provide convenient, real-time business-to-consumer (B2C) payments.Advancements in disbursement tools are opening new avenues for companies to get money to their customers, clients, business partners and employees faster and more efficiently. Using digital disbursements, companies can now send digital payments to an email address, mobile number, debit card or direct to an account. While it’s easy to see the value of providing faster, digital B2C payments to the customer, companies must also ensure transactions are cost-effective, efficient and secure. continue reading » 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Cricket News Melbourne rain on final day- Will it deny India win? Know the weather report here

first_imgNew Delhi: When Virat Kohli did not enforce the follow-on in the Boxing Day Test against Australia in Melbourne after taking a massive 292-run lead, many questions were raised. Experts and analysts pointed out that Melbourne was expecting rain on days four and five. India set Australia a target of 399 and Pat Cummins’ fifty helped them reach 258/8 to drag the Test into the final day. Many Australian fans prayed for rain on the final day. When day five came, the rain duly arrived. Melbourne had received rain in the morning and before the match began, the pitch was covered as there was a drizzle. Play was supposed to commence at 5:30 AM IST or 11 AM local time but a heavier spell of rain resulted in more covers being brought out and the first session being washed out totally.One cricket website cheekily pointed out that there had been an unprecedented popularity for the terms “Melbourne Weather” from India over the last 24 hours from Google. In the interim, Australian fans were pouring over social media and cyberspace praying for the rain to continue for two more sessions. The Indian fans, on the other hand, were cautiously optimistic but some were criticizing Kohli’s decision to not enforce the follow-on. According to the weather report, the afternoon period in Melbourne promises no rain but there is a fresh spell of thundershowers expected towards the final session should Australia drag the match till that time. Lunch was taken at 6:45 AM IST but the covers were coming off and the starting time was 7:25 AM ISTRead More | India vs Australia, live cricket score, 3rd Test: Rain delays startFor fans who have been watching Boxing Day Tests for many years, the rain comes as no surprise. In the last eight years, six games have been delayed by rain. In 2010 against England, the start of play was delayed on day 1 but Australia was bowled out for 98 and England registered an innings win. In 2011 against India, day 1 was delayed frequently but the rain did not come on the other days. In the 2012 Test against Sri Lanka, day 3 was interrupted by rain but not to such an extent to influence the outcome of the match. The 2013 and 2014 Tests did not see any interruptions. In 2015, the first hour of the first day in the game against West Indies was delayed. In 2016 against Pakistan, over two days were lost due to rain but Sarfraz Ahmed’s side still lost the game by an innings.Read More | Cummins’ grit frustrates Kohli’s victory push in Boxing Day TestIn the 2017 Ashes Test, the fourth day was interrupted by rain but Alastair Cook’s 244 gave England their only draw in a series which Australia won 4-0. Indian fans would be hoping that the rain stays away and that Kohli’s side take the remaining two wickets to secure a 2-1 series win.

Five things we learned from the Premier League

first_imgChelsea’s Hazard hard ball pays offLiverpool’s upgrades in the transfer market meant they were expected to push City for the title, but Chelsea’s 100 percent start was not as confidently foreseen after a chaotic summer at Stamford Bridge.Chelsea caved in to Thibaut Courtois’s demands to join Real Madrid, but crucially didn’t do the same for Eden Hazard. The Belgian has starred rather than sulked at not getting his move, scoring a hat-trick in Saturday’s 4-1 win over Cardiff to take his tally to five goals in just three starts under new manager Maurizio Sarri.Should Chelsea mount an unexpected title challenge, it will be down to their resilience in holding onto Hazard.No let-up from LiverpoolThe Merseyside club won the last of their then-record 18 English titles in 1990 — before the Premier League was formed — but optimism is growing after a statement 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur kept them on maximum points.Manager Jurgen Klopp called it Liverpool’s best game of the season after a surprisingly easy afternoon at Wembley as Spurs struggled to penetrate until Erik Lamela’s injury-time strike.Liverpool have so far amassed a perfect 15 points, trailing Chelsea on goal difference — even without any goals so far from Mohamed Salah, who totted up an astonishing 44 in all competitions last season.Sane and Silva showcase City’s depthManchester City’s Leroy Sane showing his skill in a 3-0 win over Fulham at the Etihad Stadium © AFP / Oli SCARFFIt says much for the wealth of options on offer to Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola that he could afford to leave out last season’s Young Player of the Year Leroy Sane for the first month of the season.Sane scored inside two minutes of his return to the starting line-up in a 3-0 cruise over Fulham on Saturday that kept City nestled just two points behind the leaders. Guardiola has been reportedly keen to improve Sane’s attitude, but the same can’t be said for Bernardo Silva.Bernardo Silva has now become a favourite of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola © AFP / Paul ELLISThe Portuguese had to wait for his time to shine during City’s record-breaking campaign last season, but is currently Guardiola’s main man in midfield with Kevin De Bruyne sidelined by a long-term knee injury.“It’s almost impossible to be more pleased with him (Silva) as a manager,” said Guardiola. “That’s why he deserves to play all the minutes he’s playing.”Mourinho smiles at lastJose Mourinho was relaxed and contented after Manchester United held on to beat Watford 2-1 on Saturday — a million miles away from his spikiness of recent weeks.He singled out Marouane Fellaini and Romelu Lukaku for praise and even spoke warmly of the match officials when asked about the late sending-off of Nemanja Matic. “I don’t know,” he said. “The only thing I know is that (referee) Mike Dean was very good and the assistants were very good.”And he drew a laugh when he joked about goal-scorer Chris Smalling’s new haircut. “He was good,” Mourinho said. “The only thing I don’t like in Chris at this moment is the haircut but I am nobody to tell him that.”Hammers’ faith rewardedLife is not as lonely for Manuel Pellegrini after West Ham’s 3-1 win away to Everton © AFP / Paul ELLISSuch is the febrile atmosphere of the Premier League, there was speculation that new West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini, despite being given £100 million ($129 million) to spend on players in pre-season, might be sacked after starting the campaign with a run of four straight defeats.But a 3-1 win away to Everton on Sunday quelled those concerns, at least for the time being, and gave the Chilean an extra reason to celebrate his 65th birthday.As a former Manchester City manager, Pellegrini is aware of the rollercoaster nature of life in the Premier League, but victory at Goodison Park allowed him to proclaim a long-term vision for the east London club. “We score goals and always try to continue scoring goals. I saw the players working every day of the week… I am convinced and the players are convinced.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Chelsea’s Eden Hazard celebrates scoring their third goal in a 4-1 win at home to Cardiff © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 16 – Both Chelsea and Liverpool maintained their perfect starts to the English top-flight season with wins over Cardiff and Tottenham respectively, while West Ham climbed off the bottom of the table with a 3-1 success away to Everton that gave them a first league victory under manager Manuel Pellegrini.Here are five things we learned from the Premier League this weekend:last_img read more

Solskjaer happy with Man Utd backing, expects more new signings

first_imgHowever, Solskjaer believes more business will be done over the next month and is happy with the recruitment of Wan-Bissaka and James in a change of strategy in the transfer market, focused on younger British players.United reportedly had a £70 million bid for England international centre-back Harry Maguire turned down by Leicester this week.“It’s a long-term and it’s a short-term project,” Solskjaer told MUTV.“You cannot just think three years down the line, so we’ve got short-term goals as well, of course.“I think we’ve been quite calm and good in the market as we’ve got the right people, and we’re still working on a case or two.”“I’ve got the backing and we’ve got the people we wanted, for now, and there will probably be some more business being done.”After a bright start when Solskjaer was handed the job on a temporary basis in December, United’s form slumped alarmingly towards the end of the campaign to finish sixth in the Premier League.And the Norwegian wants his side to be more consistent in his first full season in charge to try and close the gap to English champions Manchester City and Champions League winners Liverpool.“At Manchester United, and in the Premier League, I have to say, you have to be at our best for long, long periods,” added Solskjaer.“You’ve got to be consistent. You can see the top two teams last season were so consistent.“To have the pre-season together and lay down the foundations and principles to get the fitness, the tactics and the mentality right, and to get the team gelled as one, is important.”One player who will be staying put at United is Andreas Pereira after the Brazilian midfielder signed a new four-year contract on Friday.The 23-year-old, who came through the United Academy, enjoyed a breakthrough 2018-19 campaign and has made 35 first-team appearances.“I have spent so long in Manchester that I now regard the city and the club as my home and I’m extremely happy to continue my career here,” said Pereira.“The manager has shown great faith in me and I can’t wait to get this campaign started under him.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expects more new signings before the start of the new Premier League season © AFP / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Jul 5 – Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists he is happy with the transfer business the club have completed so far this summer and expects more signings before the season gets underway.United have spent up to £65 million ($82 million) on promising youngsters Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James, but there has not been a huge turnover in players at Old Trafford despite a bitterly disappointing end to last season.last_img read more
