High Fidelity at Bluegrass Monday
Posted on Thursday November 22, 2018

Dear Bluegrass Friends,

    If you love traditional bluegrass sounds picked to perfection, you’re going to love this month’s Bluegrass Monday band!

    High Fidelity will perform a concert of bluegrass music this Monday, Nov. 26, at 7:00 p.m. at the Collins Theatre, 120 West Emerson Street, in downtown Paragould, Arkansas.  The performance 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 group.  The suggested donation is $5 per person.

    High Fidelity is a group of young musicians who have a passion for bluegrass music from the 1950s and 1960s.  The band is heavily influenced by artists from that era such as the Stanley Brothers, Jim and Jesse, the Louvin Brothers, Don Reno and Red Smiley.

    The first time that the members of High Fidelity performed together onstage was at the 2014 International Band Championship at the 40th annual Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America awards.  After a very brief rehearsal just prior to their competition performance, the band then won the championship, beating two dozen other groups, many of which had been performing music together for years.

    Since winning that championship, the band has performed at select venues across the country, receiving praise from bluegrass music fans who love their traditional style and sound.

    High Fidelity released a self-produced debut CD in 2016.  Earlier this year, the band released their first CD for the acclaimed producer of bluegrass music Rebel Records.  That project, titled Hills and Home, has received widespread acclaim from the bluegrass music community.  Bluegrass Today said of the project, “There’s not a single song here that doesn’t inspire an enthusiastic response or an urge to get in their groove.”  Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine called it “bluegrass from the true vine of the tradition.”

    Kurt Stephenson plays banjo and sings in the band.  He is a graduate of Arkansas State University, and he is the 2010 winner of the National Bluegrass Banjo Championship held in Winfield, Kansas.  A native of West Tennessee, Stephenson was a member of the band Stone County Connection which has also performed at past Bluegrass Monday concerts.  He has also released his own solo CDs.

    Jeremy Stephens is the guitarist and a vocalist for High Fidelity.  He has been performing bluegrass music in a variety of bands since his teenage years, and he is best known as the former guitarist and vocalist in the long-running gospel group The Chuck Wagon Gang.  He was also featured as a multi-instrumentalist on the television program Ray Stevens’ Nashville. He has also performed in the bands of Jesse McReynolds and Kody Norris.

    Corrina Rose Logston plays fiddle and sings in the group.  She has performed in numerous acclaimed and high profile bluegrass groups including Jesse McReynolds and the Virginia Boys, David Peterson and 1946, and Chris Henry and the Hardcore Grass.  She is also an outstanding songwriter, and she has produced two solo CDs featuring her own compositions.  She is a graduate of the music business program at Belmont University in Nashville.

    Vickie Vaughn sings and plays bass for the band.  In addition to playing with High Fidelity, this Kentucky native leads her own bluegrass group, the Vickie Vaughn band.  She sings back-up vocals in concerts with country superstar Patty Loveless, and she is a former member of the band for bluegrass vocalist Valerie Smith.

    More information is available at http://highfidelitybluegrass.com/.  

    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 Mondays to welcome bluegrass music fans.  The café serves a country-style 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 Bibb Chiropractic Center, the Posey Peddler, Holiday Inn Express and Suites of Paragould, the Northeast Arkansas Bluegrass Association 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.  To be removed from this emailing list, respond to this email message.  Bluegrass Monday is also on Facebook (search “Bluegrass Monday”).

    I wish you a very blessed Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  Come and enjoy a fabulous evening of bluegrass music this Monday night, November 26, at the Collins Theatre with High Fidelity.

Maria Muldaur "Don't You Feel My Leg" CD Review
Posted on Monday October 15, 2018

Maria Muldaur
“Don’t You Feel My Leg”
The Naughty Bawdy Blues Of Blue Lu Barker
The Last Music Company
By Peter “Blewzzman” Lauro © October 2018

Although “Don’t You Feel My Leg” is Multiple Grammy Award and Blues Music Award nominee Maria Muldaur’s first release on the London based The Last Music Company, it is actually the forty-first release of her career. That number, being far from a record, is nevertheless an impressive number indeed.

Unbeknownst to everyone involved, the seed for this recording could have possibly been planted back in 1973 when Maria was recording her very first solo album.  That’s when Dr. John introduced her to a song called “Don’t You Feel My Leg” which she loved, recorded with him and placed on the self titled “Maria Muldaur” album.  That release also featured “Midnight At The Oasis” and after that, there was no looking back for Maria.

Fast forward some forty-three years and Maria now gets an invitation to put on a concert paying tribute to Blue Lu Barker as part of the newly created Danny Barker Festival held in New Orleans every January.  As the show ended, the awed crowd ultimately led to an overwhelming presence of people at the merch tent, all wanting to purchase the nonexistent CD of what they just heard.  And there you have it, the idea was sprung, the project was put into motion and the fruits of that seed are now available for everyone’s enjoyment.

“Don’t You Feel My Leg”, which was produced by Maria, was recorded in New Orleans and the ensemble of talented musicians backing her on the vocals include: the albums musical director, David Torkanowsky on piano: Herlin Riley on drums and percussion; Chris Adkins on guitar; Roland Guerin on bass; Kevin Lewis and Duke Heitger on trumpet; Roderick Paulin and Tom Fischer on saxophone and clarinet; Eric Trolsen and Charlie Halloran on trombone.  The album contains twelve naughty, bawdy, blues tracks of which eight were written by and/or collaborated on by Blue Lu Barker and her husband Danny Barker.

The album opens with “Georgia Grind” (Allen/Williams).  It’s got that familiar sound that anyone who has ever cruised up and down Bourbon Street will surely recognize.  David on the piano, Duke on the trumpet and Tom on the sax and clarinet are all belting out some of the best Dixieland Jazz you’ll ever hope to hear, and the obviously good time Maria is having being bad, leaves no wonder as to how she was chosen for that festival.  This stuff is right up her alley.

On this track, the horns get bluesy and the blues gets hor……..errr, never mind.  Good lawdy this music’s even making me bawdy.  This is one of the originals and it’s called “Loan Me Your Husband.”  On it, the band is in a slow and sultry groove with some very steamy sax leads by Roderick.  Speaking of steamy, hot damn - Maria’s got my temperature rising.

This original swinger is called “Now You’re Down In The Alley” and it’s actually a song about - and for - dancing…..the kind you do standing up.  With Maria belting out lyrics about the popular dances of the forties, fifties and sixties, the band is all over it with just the right groove for swinging to them all.  This one flat out rips.

He’s good in the saddle; when he mounts, he knows how to rock and he knows just how to bounce; he never gets tired, he knows how to last; he climbs on slow and doesn’t get off fast.  Hopalong Cassidy? Errrrrr, no!  It’s her “Bow Legged Daddy” that Maria’s talking about, and these are just some of the things he does that keep a smile on her face…. amongst other things.  With David, Herlin and Roland already locked into a sweet groove on the piano drums and bass, as soon as Maria gives her “Ohhhh ride me now” cue - Roderick and Eric join and take thinks up a notch with some sharp sax, clarinet and trombone blowin’.          

Maria seems proud of the fact that she’s never had more than three men in her life, but that somewhat admirable statement somehow loses it’s credibility once she says “I’d still have the third one if it wasn’t for his wife”.  That said, it’s man number two - that “Trombone Man Blues” focuses on.  As Maria tells it - Number two played the trombone and he thrilled her with his slide; he could push it back and forth and he could slide it to the side; but when he switched to the tuba, she had to take her things and hide.  As with all these songs, Maria’s sassy, sultry, sensuous and seductive vocal presentation do add intrigue to these innuendos.   Evidently, being proud this song’s about him, Charlie Halloran lives up to his reputation with one hell of a trombone performance.

Here we are, with the song that started it all - “Don’t You Feel My Leg”.  Now I’m a firm believer of “No means no!” and yes, I do understand “What didn’t you understand about no?” means.  Having said that, I’m kinda thinking that Maria really does want you to touch her “plump yet oh so fine, little old leg.”  Featuring every musician in the credits, and on top of their game at that, this one’s a musical masterpiece.

Other tracks on this wonderfully done CD include: “Leave My Man Alone” (White), “Scat Skunk,” “Here’s A Little Girl From Jacksonville,” “Nix On Those Lush Heads,” “A Little Bird Told Me” and “Handy Andy” (Razaf).  Also deserving mention is an eight page very interesting and quite informative booklet insert.

For more on Maria, check her out at http://www.mariamuldaur.com; for more on the label check them out at http://www.lastmusic.co.uk; and should you need a copy of “Don’t You Feel My Leg” for airplay, contact Lisa Best at lisa@lastmusic.co.uk.  Whomever it is you visit or contact please tell them the Blewzzman sent you, but if it’s Maria, also tell her that I said her legs look great on the disc’s back cover.

BTW, please stay tuned for two more upcoming reviews of The Last Music Company’s other new releases - “Ain’t No Lady” by Sister Suzie and “Closing Time” by Chris Youlden & The Slammers.

“I like to construct melodies that tell stories, based on what I’ve seen, what I feel and what I hear,” Chestnut explains. “If I can connect to what I’m playing, then I’ll be able to share it. That’s why you may think that some of what I do seems simple, but when you get into it, it’s not as simple as you think.”   — Cyrus Chestnut
