I was able to go catch a great show at Tipitinas Uptown last night. It's enough that just Jon Cleary was playin, but about a week or so ago Johnny Vidacovich and James Singleton were added, which made this a don't miss show as far as I am concerned. Have never seen Cleary and Johnny V play together and knew that it would be something special, and right on time after the Saints loss earlier in the day. The stage was set up as it was for Johnny V's bday show a few months back, so the both were stage front facing each other, which adds significantly to the intimacy of the show, basically musical ping pong right in front of you, with James Singleton mid stage on his signature stand up bass.....funky, slinky, bluesy tunes were on the menu, seasoned with some classic Mardi Gras staples....a sweet night of music indeed. Love to see these guys together again!
