Only a month until Marshall plays The Jazz Cafe in London! Playing with Marshall that night will be drummer Michael Blair (who has worked with Lou Reed, Elvis Costello, and Tom Waits) and Neill MacColl (who has worked with David Gilmour and k.d. lang)
Marshall joins a stellar group of artists including Elvis Costello, Norah Jones, Regina Spektor, and JD McPherson on the new Boardwalk Empire Soundtrack, which will be released on iTunes next Monday, October 27th!
On this week’s Bottomless Pit I’ll pay tribute to 2 Heroes of Rock who, as of Oct. 4th and 5th, are no longer among the living and breathing: 1) Paul Revere, of Paul Revere and The Raiders, and 2) Record Producer, excellent human being, and friend of mine, Lou Whitney.
The 1965-68 incarnation of Paul Revere and The Raiders was one of the greatest Rock and Roll bands to ever walk the Earth. The band’s history is a long and deep one, and on this Saturday’s show I’ll salute that history, and the departed person who’s name is on it..
Lou Whitney was fun to be around, very sharp and interesting, knew what it was all about, and was one of a kind. He produced dozens of great records, some of the best I’ve ever heard..
Please join me for all of the above at 10 PM NY time, Saturday on WFUV
