March 27 is KASU's next Bluegrass Monday with Chris Jones and the Night Drivers
Posted on Wednesday March 15, 2017

Dear Bluegrass Friends,

    First of all, please note that I’m sending you this Bluegrass Monday reminder earlier in the month than usual.  Our next show is going to be a BIG one as we welcome one of the biggest stars in bluegrass music to our concert series. You will want to mark this show on your calendar now.  Please make plans to join us for a wonderful night of music and entertainment on March 27.

   Chris Jones and the Night Drivers will perform a concert of bluegrass music Monday, March 27, at 7:00 p.m. at the Collins Theatre, 120 West Emerson Street, in downtown Paragould, Arkansas.  The concert is part of the Bluegrass Monday concert series presented by KASU 91.9 FM.  KASU will literally “pass the hat” to collect money to pay the musicians.  The suggested donation is $5 per person.

    Chris Jones has spent over thirty years as a professional bluegrass musician.  Early in his career, he was a sideman for bluegrass legends Dave Evans and Vassar Clements.  He was also member of the bands Special Consensus, Weary Hearts, the Lynn Morris Band, and Whetstone Run.  In 1995, Jones formed his own group, the Night Drivers.

     Jones has recorded 12 CDs as a leader, and he has appeared as a guest on dozens of projects by other artists.  For his work on the CD “40” by Larry Sparks, Jones received an International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) award in the Recorded Event of the Year category.

    Throughout his career, Jones has had great success on bluegrass radio stations.  Last year, he released his first project for the Mountain Home Music Company.  That CD produced two number one hits, “One Night In Paducah” and “Laurie,” which spent six weeks at the top of the chart.  His follow-up project, “Made To Move,” was released in February 2017, and that CD has already produced another number one hit, “I’m A Wanderer.”

    A prolific songwriter, Jones’ compositions have been recorded by bluegrass artists including the Gibson Brothers, the Infamous Stringdusters, the Chapmans, and Lou Reid.  In 2007, Jones won the IBMA Song of the Year award.

    Jones is also well-known as a host on Sirius XM’s Bluegrass Junction satellite radio channel.  For that work, he is a two-time winner of the IBMA’s Broadcaster of the Year trophy.

    In addition to his work as a musician, Jones has also found success as a columnist.  He is a former writer for Flatpicking Guitar magazine, and he currently writes a weekly humorous column for the Bluegrass Today website.  In 2014, he won the IBMA’s Print/Media Person of the Year award.

    The Night Drivers includes bassist Jon Weisberger, a three-time IBMA award winner, including being named Bluegrass Songwriter of the Year in 2012.  When not touring and recording with the Night Drivers, Weisberger is in-demand as a fill-in bassist for bluegrass greats including Del McCoury, Larry Cordle and Roland White.  He is also a past member of the bands Union Springs and the Wildwood Valley Boys.  Like Jones, Weisberger also hosts programs on Sirius XM’s Bluegrass Junction satellite radio channel.  He has been a member of the Night Drivers for over a decade.

    Mark Stoffel plays mandolin for the Night Drivers.  He is a native of Germany who became a United States citizen last year.  Stoffel has made his home in Southern Illinois for over a decade, and he is a former member of the band Shady Mix which performed in the Bluegrass Monday concert series on two occasions in 2004.  Stoffel has been a member of the Night Drivers for ten years.

    The newest member of the Night Drivers is banjo player Gina Clowes.  She began playing bluegrass at a young age as part of the Furtado family band.  She was a frequent finalist in the prestigious bluegrass banjo competition at the Galax Old Fiddler’s Convention.  For four years, she was a member of the band Bud’s Collective, recording three CDs with that group.  Clowes joined the Night Drivers a year ago.

    Additional information about the Jones and the Night Drivers, including videos of the band in concert, is available at www.chrisjonesgrass.com or at www.facebook.com/bluegrassmonday.

    Seating at the concert is first-come, first-served.  Doors to the theatre will open at 6:00.

    In addition to the concert, Terry’s Café, 201 South Pruett Street in Paragould, opens on Bluegrass Monday nights to welcome bluegrass music fans.  The café serves a buffet meal beginning at 4:30 p.m. on the evenings of Bluegrass Monday concerts.  Concessions will also be available at the Collins Theatre.

    Bluegrass Monday concerts are held on the fourth Monday night of each month.  These concerts are presented with support from the Northeast Arkansas Bluegrass Association, Bibb Chiropractic, the Posey Peddler, Holiday Inn Express and Suites of Paragould and KASU.

    KASU, 91.9 FM, is the 100,000 watt public broadcasting service of Arkansas State University in Jonesboro.  For more information, contact KASU Program Director Marty Scarbrough at mscarbro@astate.edu or 870-972-2367.  Bluegrass Monday is also on Facebook (search “Bluegrass Monday”).  To be removed from this emailing list, reply to this message.

    Again, the concert is Monday, March 27, one week from this Monday.  Invite your friends, family and neighbors. Let’s fill the Collins Theatre for a memorable night with Chris Jones and the Night Drivers.  See you on the 27th.

Marty

BlueHouse Project

BlueHouse Project

Self Titled CD

FetSong Music

By Peter “Blewzzman” Lauro © March 2017

 

I first discovered BlueHouse Project by hearing a song of theirs on a compilation CD titled “Virginia Blues Showcase” that I reviewed and distributed for Bobby BlackHat Productions.  Liking their track on the disc, I contacted the band for a copy of their full recording and as the expression goes - the rest is history.

BlueHouse Project got started by a bunch of old musician friends running into each other at a reunion concert for the Bayou Club in the DC area.  The usual, but rarely ever happening, “we should get together and do some shows” were thrown around and lo and behold, "their people" actually did contact “their people” and wah-lah - BlueHouse Project was formed.  The band consists of: Ron Fetner - composer of all eleven songs - on electric & acoustic guitars, mandolin, and lead & background vocals; Mark Tramonte on keyboard, piano and background vocals; Tom McCarthy on bass and background vocals; and Corey Holland on drums.  There’s also a sax crew on some tracks and they are: Mike Caffi, Bobby Reed and Scott Ramminger.  On this, the bands’ debut disc, special guests include: Mark Wenner (The Nighthawks) and Tom Dikon on harp; Tim Tanner on guitar, slide guitar and background vocals; Randy Short on drums; Rich Ridolfino on bass; and Jordan Ponzi on upright bass.   

The disc opens with "Piece Of My Heart" and as an opening track should, it did indeed make an excellent first impression.  Ron’s formidable lead vocals; the quite tight rhythm Tom, Corey and Mike T. were locked into; and the guitar and sax leads by Ron and Bobby respectfully, were all outstanding.

“Black Widow Spider” is one of the tracks that features Mark Wenner on harp and if that’s all I said about it, it’s reason enough to listen…..but, there are others.  Ron’s guitar leads are some of the disc’s best, Tom M. & Corey are all over the rhythm and the vocals, with some harmonious backup help, are contagious.   

“I Can’t Lose These Blues” is the track I referred to in my opening paragraph.  It's an absolutely beautifully done ballad that’s highlighted by tender, story telling style vocals backed by silk like rhythm with sultry sax and mesmeric guitar leads.  Ron, if they’re all going to be like this then this listener hopes you’ll never lose these blues.

After hearing this one you’ll surely want to sit down beside Ron and let him “Play You The Blues”.  His vocals and acoustic guitar work, along with Jordan’s upright bass mastery make this very laid back song a must hear track. 

This one is the disc’s smoker.  At the hands of Rich and Randy on the bass and drums, It features some of the disc’s hardest driving rhythm; plenty of barrelhouse piano from Mike T.; fiery hot sax leads by Mike C. and Bobby; and Ron and Tim getting rough and raunchy on guitar.  Oh yeah, by mid track you’ll be joining the background vocalists as they melodically chant “Going Down To Texas”.     

The disc closes with “Black Cat Blues (For Velvet)”, an acoustic track that features some fine pickin' by Ron and some equally fine blowin’ by Tom.  It’s a cleverly and humorously written track that, as a cat person, I was totally able to relate to.  It’s about a stray cat that Ron lets into his house and as cats do, it takes over. 

Other tracks on the album include: “White Cotton”, “Coal Mine”, “Newport Blue”, “Uptown Strut” and “It’s A Good Thing”.

Zoot Sims: Brother of Swing

Zoot Sims is the well-deserving subject of this NPR Jazz Profile, hosted by Nancy Wilson. Zoot Sims was always an excellent improviser, but on those days when the gods were smiling on him, he surpassed Getz and touched the hem of Lester Young’s garment. He was also one of the absolute great dry wits in jazz (and there were many). Weaving and teetering off the rickety stairs from the stage at the center of the bar at the Half Note, a fan asked, “how can you play so well when you’re like this?” Zoot replied without hesitation, “Oh, I practice drunk.”
