    Davell Crawford: Piano Prince of New Orleans

    They’ve called Davell Crawford the “Piano Prince of New Orleans.” He has had long and diverse career playing all kinds of music, New Orleans R&B, Gospel, Rock n Roll, Blues, and Jazz but he was trained as a classical musician too. His grandfather, James “Sugar Boy” Crawford wrote and recorded “Jock-a-Mo” which you know as “Iko Iko” for Chess records in 1954. And when he was young he hung out with...

    Eddie Martinez: Session guitar god. Licks you’ll recognize

    Eddie Martinez is today’s guest. If his name isn’t familiar to you, his guitar licks are. Remember those licks in RUN DMC’s “Rock Box” and “King of Rock” or Robert Palmer’s hits, or with Bernard Edwards or Labelle? Or hundreds of other licks in tunes of all kinds. He’s still at it, but he was a go-to studio guitar god.

    Lee Oskar: That unique harmonica in War

    Lee Oskar: That unique harmonica in War

    War was immensely popular and they were unique. Funky with a Latin edge. They had an equally unique harmonica player who wasn’t playing Blues, but he added something to their sound that no other band had, or at least no other band with as many hits as War. His name is Lee Oskar and he’s my guest today on On the One: Vintage Soul Interviews.

To honor him and Black History month, here’s a fascinating bit of oral history with Reggie Houston who was the baritone player in Fats’ band for twenty years.

    Oh we’ve got something you’ll like today. It’s a rollicking hour with the man who was B.B. King’s drummer for over thirty years….Tony (TC) Coleman. He’s also played with Bobby Blue Bland, Johnnie Taylor; is friends with Willie Nelson and many other of our greatest artists. He’s a singular individual and is always great to hang with.

    Lee Fields: A Soul man in his own right

    Lee Fields: A Soul man in his own right

    Today’s On-the-One guest is singer and songwriter, the very funky, very soulful Lee Fields. He came up in the 1960’s, did pretty well for himself, known as “Little JB” for James Brown because of his voice, his dancing abilities and because he was just downright funky. When disco hit, he wanted to remain true to his art, so he quit the business for a few years. He was a part of the great Soul music...
