Mastogiavanni, Leslie Parr, and historical work by Michael P. Smith and Jules Cahn from the Historic New Orleans Collection, and by John Messina and Eric Waters from the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation Collection. The exhibition is organized by Charles M. Lovell, volunteer curator for the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Foundation Gallery.

The history of New Orleans second lines and social aid and pleasure clubs is directly linked to traditions of African American cultural practices including brass bands, jazz funerals and African dances that date back over two centuries to Sunday celebrations in Congo Square. Through the exhibition, Preserving New Orleans Second Lines Culture will bring to the New Orleans public and visitors to our region a greater understanding of the importance of these rich cultural traditions by showing some of the best contemporary and historical photography representing the subject.

I also have work on display at the AMAZING  “Louisiana Photography Biennial” Photo Exhibit which is still running thru November 19th, if you haven't been yet, try and get down there before the show closes.

In the April 2016 edition of GQ magazine, the top six party-cation destinations are listed and of course New Orleans is in the upper tier of that list at number two, followed by Miami at number 1, (2 totally different and unique experiences, perhaps there should be two number 1's). So where does GQ tell you to start for your festivities in New Orleans? d.b.a. on Frenchmen Street OF COURSE , which is so aptly described by writer Brett Anderson as "An anchor of the Frenchmen Street music scene. The clubs jazz and soul set start early and pair well with all the craft beers from around these parts". And as far as music if you're lucky you'll get to see Big Chief Monk Boudreaux and the Golden Eagle Mardi Gras Indians in one of my images above the article. No Worries though, if you miss Monk there's an endless string of the best local talent playing at the club nightly Including Walter Wolfman Washington, Glen David Andrews, George Porter Jr., Papa Mali, The Treme brass band, Luke Winslow King, Little Freddie King and many many more..... Happy Jazz Fest to all!!;-)

And to top it off, the man himself, Fame Recording Studio owner Rick Hall invited us all up to his expansive office on the second floor for a chat about, the recording industry, the way it was and what it has turned into......he also expressed a keen interest in Aaron Neville's music and was noticeably tickled to be talking with the Uptown Ruler himself, Cyril Neville...... The office walls were decorated with dozens of gold records, including Aretha Franklins "I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You)" hovering above my left shoulder.....amazing!! He talked about the magic of the studio and the Muscle Shoals Sound, describing some magical vignettes recording with Aretha Franklin describing something spiritual happening during the recordings, the same thing everyone felt when recording there, and yes, it happened again with RSB and I witnessed it 1st hand. royal_southern_brotherhood_muscle_shoals_jm_010415_003royal_southern_brotherhood_muscle_shoals_jm_010415_003Cyril Nevilles Royal Southern Brotherhood records album at Legendary Fame Recording Studio, Muscle Shoals, AL.. ….Coming in April 2015!

One of the things I look forward to most during RSB's sessions is the truly amazing voice of my friend Cyril Neville. One of the last songs recorded was a track called “Better Half”. We were all in the control room when Tom asked Cyril if he was ready to take a run at “Better Man” to which Cyril obliged....Before he started I told Tom, “I wouldn't be surprised if he nailed it the first time”....... royal_southern_brotherhood_muscle_shoals_jm_010615_049royal_southern_brotherhood_muscle_shoals_jm_010615_049Cyril Nevilles Royal Southern Brotherhood records album at Legendary Fame Recording Studio, Muscle Shoals, AL.. ….Coming in April 2015!

I don't remember anything during the vocal, Cyril's delivery was powerful, a voice simultaneously angelic and powerful,  transporting this photographer to another dimension.....when the song ended, you could hear a pen drop, silence......smiles...everyone looking back and forth in amazement.....the pro that he is Tom then nonchalantly
asked Cyril to take another run at the song from the top, you know just in case.......which he did, and nailed it again......normally that would have been my cue to go out in the room with Cyril to capture his delivery......This time was different, for the first time I made a conscious decision not to shoot this because there was no way to capture what I had just heard and do it justice it deserved. That's some Muscle Shoals Magic for ya!!!

 

 

Cyril Neville’s Royal Southern Brotherhood Eyes May 26th for the release of “Don’t Look Back: The Muscle Shoals Sessions” which my ears gotta hold of yesterday for the first time.........I've listened to only twice, but this may be their strongest effort yet, and RSB's debut was a pretty bad ass release......Do yourself a favor and pick up this CD when released, it's a must have in any music connoisseur's collection!! In the meantime  you can  snack on  a sneak peek of three songs: RSB - 3 Song Teaser

Best of luck to you both and hope to see you soon Mike and Devon!!!!

Don’t Look Back: The Muscle Shoals Sessions

Produced by Tom Hambridge and Blessed by FAME founder Rick Hall
Cyril Neville’s Royal Southern Brotherhood Eyes May 26th
For 3rd Studio Album

“They are not a band – they are an extravaganza” – John Hiatt

Atlanta, GA – Ruf Records recording group, Royal Southern Brotherhood (RSB) preps for their much anticipated third studio album, Don’t Look Back: The Muscle Shoals Sessions for release on May 26th.
This album was recorded at the legendary FAME Studios (est. 1960 - Aretha Franklin, Little Richard, Wilson Pickett, Etta James, Otis Redding) in Muscle Shoals, AL with Grammy award-winning producer Tom Hambridge and the band’s new guitar line up as Cyril Neville leads the charge forward.

Don’t Look Back is a spiritual journey that only Cyril Neville can lead. The elite percussionist’s experiences combined with these talented, energetic players create a new sound that remains reverent to the blues traditions. This highlights the magic that happens when great songs are performed by great bands.

The magic of FAME was not lost on band leader, Cyril Neville. The longtime musical icon almost sounded like a star struck upstart when speaking of the experience, stating, “I stood in the same place (vocal booth) as Wilson Pickett!”

The energy and excitement was not lost on the rest of the band. The process began when the band gathered at a rented house along the Tennessee River. The river is famous for the singing-like sounds it makes as the waves lap against the shores. According to the legend of The Singing River, which is associated with the Yuchie tribe, it is believed the flowing waters sounded like a woman singing. The time in the rented house not only inspired much of the material, it allowed the band to develop the chemistry that separates a band from a group of musicians.

For their third effort, RSB brought in two new fiery guitar slingers, Bart Walker and Tyrone Vaughan, to breathe new energy into the band's sound. The new blood is there to help the venerable Cyril Neville on percussion and vocals with the thunderous rhythm section of Yonrico Scott and Charlie Wooton to up the funk while maintaining the blues and rock that has brought Royal Southern Brotherhood a growing, worldwide audience.

The constant touring and recording has paid off: in 2014, the band won a Blues Music Award for BEST DVD for Songs From The Road – Live In Germany. This year they are nominated for BEST ROCK BLUES CD for their sophomore effort, heartsoulblood and that will be decided in Memphis at the Blues Music Awards held in May.

Songs like “Big Greasy” recalls old school funk and Go-Go music, a sparse “Anchor Me” is a tender love ballad while the Neville autobiographical “Hell or High Water” is filled with the showman’s life and its struggles. The banjo-tinged title track, “Don’t Look Back” which is sung by Bart, brings in a country texture to give it a traveling feel.

Listen to a sneak peek of three songs: RSB - 3 Song Teaser

All these great songs came from various places as the band toured. Whether it was a sound check in the mid-west or a cheap hotel lobby or some studio in Europe, the band fleshed out their ideas (often recorded on their cell phones), so they had structure and hooks worked out before reaching FAME. This allowed the band and Hambridge to concentrate on performance instead of spending time developing ideas. Hambridge was so mesmerized by the quintet’s cohesiveness he didn’t want to touch a thing but the record button. The other cats on tape are Dumpstaphunk’s Ivan Neville on keyboards/organ and legendary Jimmy Hall on harp scattered about adding flare to the tunes.

Bart Walker, with his tinted glasses and curly hair, has a powerhouse voice that cuts through the music.  Classically trained as a formal opera singer, Walker hails from the Nashville area and he spent time in both Mike Farris from The Screamin’ Cheetah Willies and Reese Wynans (and old SRV bandmate) musical outfits. His 2013 release, Waiting On Daylight, garnered both national and international acclaim. This attention gave Bart the cache to see a lot of the world via Ruf Records President’s, Blues Caravan Tour, which spotlights new talent to sizable audiences. Now a seasoned player, Walker was ready and able to join the Brotherhood. “Joining RSB was the best idea anyone had for me,” said the affable Walker.

This was Tyrone Vaughan’s second time collectively playing with the others and he fell into place as if he were a longtime bandmate. Being the son of Jimmie Vaughan and the nephew of the iconic SRV can be a heavy burden to bear. Fortunately, Tyrone is unaffected by the adulation for his family, and developed his own gifted style and signature tone. Tyrone cut his own path by working his way up through the Austin (a town drenched in guitar heroes for the uninitiated) club scene in his teens, eventually packing clubs around Texas. Through hard work, studying the masters and a tip or two from the family, Tyrone has developed a soulful voice along with a guitar tone that mixes blues, rock and country.

As for the 65-year-old Neville, a world-renowned percussionist has long been considered New Orleans royalty for his stints in the Grammy Award winning Neville Brothers, Galactic and The Meters.  Neville’s career has spawned 45 some odd years and has included performances with music icons such as Bono, Joan Baez, Dr. John and Tab Benoit. His philosophical beliefs and activist voice blend effortlessly when Cyril sits down to write. His intuition to the world and people are reflected within his soulful singing voice which creates a magnetic force between the listener and him.

In 1989, Cyril penned “Sister Rosa,” about the Civil Rights icon, Rosa Parks. USA Today honored Neville by choosing the song as one of the  most inspirational song about Martin Luther King’s, “I Have A Dream,” speech on the 50th anniversary of the historical oration given during the march on Washington (Parks was in attendance). “Sister Rosa” may not have had a change on the movement at the time, but Neville’s composition reminded a country of the thousands of souls that risked their lives to bring an end to a shameful tradition in the U.S.

This past year, Cyril found himself being interviewed by another drummer, Dave Grohl, of the Foo Fighters, for the “Sonic Highways” documentary on HBO. This eight-part series that followed the Foo Fighters around to various US cities, capturing the music scene and history that is unique to that city. Grohl, who directed the series, interviewed other Nawlins luminaries Dr. John, Allen Toussaint and Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews to gain an understanding of the Crescent City’s unique musical sound.

Cyril will lead the charge into the next Royal Southern Brotherhood crusade with this new album, Don’t Look Back with eyes narrowed. And just like John Hiatt says, “They are not a band, they are an extravaganza!” A sound and sight event of pure talent mixed in with love for their art, the music and their fans, the Loyal Royals.

The band will be in full touring mode throughout the year with radio and media campaign behind them.

Royal Southern Brotherhood at NOLA Recording Studio in New Orleans https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2014/11/royal-southern-brotherhood-at-nola-recording-studio-in-new-orleans

A couple of weeks ago post VOW Fest I spent the greater part of the day with my compadres Cyril Neville, Devon Allman, Yonrico Scott, Charlie Wooten and new guitarist Bart Walker...aka The Royal Southern Brotherhood over at NOLA Recording Studio where they were writing/recording some cuts for their new album to be recorded in early 2015. royal_southern_brotherhood_promo_shoot_jm_101414_003A couple of weeks ago post VOW Fest I spent the greater part of the day with my compadres Cyril Neville, Devon Allman, Yonrico Scott, Charlie Wooten and new guitarist Bart Walker...aka The Royal Southern Brotherhood over at NOLA Recording Studio where they were writing/recording some cuts for their new album to be recorded in early 2015. This session reminded me of the ones before RSB's debut self titled CD, which were also held at NOLA Recording Studio, and ultimately recorded at Dockside Studios where over the 3 days I spent there was able to witness the undeniable creative chemistry between the band first hand......something I will never forget.....and oh yeah, I was there to do the marketing and CD photo shoots too ..........Even with guitarist and good friend Mike Zito stepping away from RSB to concentrate on his solo career with his band Mike Zito &amp; The Wheel in support of his upcoming release SONGS FROM THE ROAD - Live in Texas (CD/DVD)Ruf Records, Guitarist Bart Walker, whose pedigree includes playing with Stevie Ray Vaughan's original back-up band Double Trouble and until recently had Double Trouble keyboarder Reese Wynans as a regular member of his own touring outfit, along with collaborating in studio with the likes of The Black Crowes and Lynyrd Skynyrd , has stepped in making the transition seamless.....This was no surprise to me after seeing Bart play with RSB in Nashville a few years ago at 3rd and Lindsley while I was on the road with the band for a half dozen or so shows. The updated lineup of RSB sounded fantastic at the 2014 Voice of the Wetlands Festival, and from hearing a few new tracks being worked out at NOLA Recording Studio last week, led by the “Uptown Ruler” Cyril Neville, RSB's follow up to the “HEARTSOULBLOOD” release will potentially be their best......and the first 2 were pretty damn good! Can't wait till they get in the studio in early 2015. In the mean time we were able to rattle off a few &quot;under the gun&quot; shots for marketing RSB and some solo shots of Devon Allman in support of his latest release &quot;Ragged and Dirty&quot; which was recently reviewed in Relix Magazine......Enjoy the pics!!

Here are some pics from the Austin based Eric Tessmer Band from last Friday at Le Bon Temps Roule . I met Eric a few years ago at Lafayette Square thru Anders Osborne......who happened to be playin that day. eric_tessmer_band_le_bon_temps_jm_071914_006eric_tessmer_band_le_bon_temps_jm_071914_006Eric Tessmer Band at Le Bon Temps Roule 7-18-14 Enjoy the pics!

The one or two songs Eric sat in on were enough to get my attention. Eric's style and guitar skills are categorically off the hook, along the lines of SRV(yes, that's what I said)........ eric_tessmer_band_le_bon_temps_jm_071914_004eric_tessmer_band_le_bon_temps_jm_071914_004Eric Tessmer Band at Le Bon Temps Roule 7-18-14 Enjoy the pics!

This was the second gig for the band at Le Bon Temps this year, and at each one I talked with people there who drove 3 and 4 hours just to see these guys(that should tell ya somethin), and as Bob Marley would say, get “Hit” and taken away with Eric's guitar work backed by a more than competent band...... Ideally these images would translate what I was seeing and hearing at the show that night, but theres only one way to get the full effect and that's live, so if you see Eric's playing somewhere near ya, don't miss it....can't wait till they swing back thru here again! Enjoy the pics! Jerry ;-)

Finally time to catch up a little on some "gems" from Jazz Fest night shows......kind of a necessity to get the mind straight  after 2 weeks of Jury Duty........... During the week that bridges the last weekend in April and the first weekend in May dragon_smoke_OEJ_jm_043014_010dragon_smoke_OEJ_jm_043014_010During the week that bridges the last weekend in April and the first weekend in May, you know....that Jazz Fest thing.......On Tuesday of that week as far as I'm concerned there's one place annually I know I'm gonna end up, at One Eyed Jacks to see Dragon Smoke. Stanton Moore, Ivan Neville, Eric Lindell and Robert Mercurio........when these guys step on stage together, somethin real special happens, each elevates pushin the other higher and higher into the night to the delight packed house visibly enjoying the ride.

Just ran across another Jazz Fest night shoot that I honestly didn't recall till I ran across yesterday.....The Royal Southern Brotherhood performed a tribute to the Rolling Stones' quintessential album, "Exile on Main Street" offering "Exile on Royal Street," a tribute to the Rolling Stones' LP and one of my favorites, so after a long day at Jazz fest, this was a nice treat. And what a beautiful setting, City Park's Botanical Gardens........ royal_southern_brotherhood_botanical_gardens_city_park_jm_050114_001ust ran across another Jazz Fest night shoot that I honestly didn't recall till I ran across yesterday.....The Royal Southern Brotherhood performed a tribute to the Rolling Stones' quintessential album, "Exile on Main Street" offering "Exile on Royal Street," a tribute to the Rolling Stones' LP and one of my favorites, so after a long day at Jazz fest, this was a nice treat. And what a beautiful setting, City Park's Botanical Gardens........I've been lookin forward to this show since talking about it with Rueben Williams last year. The thing I remember most about the show was the FIYA and I mean serious FIYA that a seemingly possessed Cyril Neville brought and poured all over the stage and crowd...the voice...the moves....Cyril had transported himself back to the 70's. Most of the night I just sat back and enjoyed the performance with a big smile on my face, but I did also manage to pop off a few stills......Enjoy!!

And while on the subject of Royal Southern Brotherhood, I got my hands on a pre release copy  of "heartsoulblood" Ruf Records and have been listening to it for a couple days.....Do yourself a favor and put this one on your “gotta have” list, release date is June 11th......

Little Freddie King recording a new CD at Living Room Recording Studio https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2014/5/little-freddie-king-recording-a-new-cd-at-living-room-recording-studio

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot for Little Freddie King over at the Living Room Recording Studios over on the West Bank. Little Freddie King is in the process of recording a new CD with 12 original tracks. little_freddie_king_living _room_studio_jm_052014_012Earlier this week I once again had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot for Little Freddie King over at the Living Room Recording Studios over on the West Bank. Little Freddie King is in the process of recording a new CD with 12 original tracks. There are two guest guitarists joining Freddie on the recording of the CD, Vasti Jackson(Freddie's Nephew) and Luke Winslow King who is a great admirer of Little Freddie King and is soaking up every minute of workin with Da King. Of course on harp is Bobby Lewis, long time bass player Anthony Anderson has had health issues that have precluded him from going forward with the band. As a result, NC import William Jordan has taken over the bass position. Mark "WIREHEAD" Bingham is at the controls, along with Chris George(owner of the Living Room) engineering. And of course "Wacko" Wade(Freddie's long time drummer) is the producer. This yet to be named CD will be unleashed on the masses later this year or early next year, so lookout world, Little Freddie King's comin your way!! Will add a few more images later today or tomorrow......<br/> Stills and a musical slideshow from the shoot can be viewed at http://www.nativeorleanian.org/little_freddie_king_living_room_studio_5_23_14<br/>All Rights Reserved ©2005-2014 Jerry Moran Native Orleanian LLClittle_freddie_king_living _room_studio_jm_052014_012Earlier this week I once again had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot for Little Freddie King over at the Living Room Recording Studios over on the West Bank.

Bruce Springsteen and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2014/5/bruce-springsteen-and-the-new-orleans-jazz-and-heritage-festival

On Bruce Springsteen, I've seen “The Boss bruce_springsteen_jazz_fest_jm_050314_006On Bruce Springsteen, I've seen “The Boss” 3 times now at Jazz Fest, all most memorable but for distinctly different reasons. The first was right after Katrina in 2006 when Bruce Springsteen brought his freshly formed Seeger Sessions Band to New Orleans bringing his storytelling, musicianship and healing powers to a down ,but no way near out, population in New Orleans, soothing the crowd with a special folk infused show, which was new for him yet amazing considering the collective conscience at that time......I specifically recall &quot;My City of Ruins.&quot;(with tears while writing) being a watershed moment in the show......The show reminded me of church, and I never left my pew........The second time I saw Springsteen, he was with the E-Street Band infusing the show with emotions that reflected a recovery, less somber more upbeat...... and that was a great show too......and then this years, the most powerful(on the positive) one of the three. I was backstage after shooting Voice of the Wetlands Allstars and saw Bruce and the Band come out of a semi where they gathered for a minute , then in single file all following “The Boss” whose gait was one of supreme confidence.......ready to go kick some rock'n roll ass for a few hours.....which they did...... I wandered with Johnny Sansone and Christy up to the right side where we could see pretty good. That's when I noticed the shit eatin grin on Springsteen's face, the dude was havin just a ball and wore it on his sleeves(as he always has). Fortunately I was able to capture a few nice images of “The Boss” that convey something close to what I attempt to describe......Jerry ;-) &#169;2005-2014 Jerry Moran Native Orleanian LLC Many more pics and a musical slideshow will be added to <a target="_blank" href="http://www.nativeorleanian.org/new_orleans_jazz_and_heritage_festival_2014">http://www.nativeorleanian.org/new_orleans_jazz_and_heritage_festival_2014</a>bruce_springsteen_jazz_fest_jm_050314_006On Bruce Springsteen, I've seen “The Boss” 3 times now at Jazz Fest, all most memorable but for distinctly different reasons.

St. Josephs Night 2014 with Big Chief Monk Boudreaux https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2014/3/st-josephs-night-2014-with-big-chief-monk-boudreaux My St. Joseph's Night experience was a little bit different than usual this year. Normally I would just head over to Washington in LaSalle and take in everything in up-and-down Washington for a few hours and let everything come to me, and then hit Downtown on the way home.....not this year though. I knew something would be different when I was talking to Monk in Jamaica after we had just gone through a rainy Mardi Gras Day. Monk normally doesn't suit up for St. Joseph's Night, at least since Katrina......... st_josephs_night_big_chief_monk_boudreaux_jm_031914_025My St. Joseph's Night experience was a little bit different than usual this year. Normally I would just head over to Washington in LaSalle and take in everything in up-and-down Washington for a few hours and let everything come to me, and then hit Downtown on the way home.....not this year though. I knew something would be different when I was talking to Monk in Jamaica after we had just gone through a rainy Mardi Gras Day. Monk normally doesn't suit up for St. Joseph's Night, at least since Katrina.........So when I asked him if he'd be suiting up this year, and his answer was an immediate “yes indeed”......I didn't ask why, I just smiled knowing this year would be different. With no idea how it would go, I was just along for the ride.....camera in tow of course. We left Monks house at the darker side of dusk......just as he'd described to me earlier. See'n the Big Chief along with the entire gang of Golden Eagle Mardi Gras Indians lined up in front of Monks with that dusk driven light was just something to behold, some PRETTY PRETTY sights. We took off on foot and headed towards Washington and LaSalle, the same route we take to Second and Dryades on Mardi Gras Day. I'd have to say that once we arrived there, at least from this new perspective I was takin in, my first thought was that I had never seen St. Josephs Night with so many people......over the last few years there has definitely been larger crowds......not like this though.......and being inside all that with the Golden Eagle Mardi Gras Indians(and it being the first time I had ever seen Monk suited up at night) movin through the people, the streets, see'n all the gangs AT NIGHT , indians everywhere, hearin all the beats and chants at once with brass bands off in the distance.......that's the best words can do for me.......Once we hit Washington and Lasalle, besides runnin into Big Chief Spoon et al(WOW!!) it's a blur all the way to Second and Dryades.........perhaps these pics from that night will assist.......Enjoy the pics and see ya at SUPER SUNDAY!!!!

Big Chief Monk Boudreaux records tracks for new CD in Kingston Jamaica https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2014/3/big-chief-monk-boudreaux-records-tracks-for-new-cd-in-kingston-jamaica

Two days after this past Mardi Gras on March 6th I had the pleasure of going down to Kingston Jamaica with good friends Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, his manager Rueben Williams and guitarist Damon Fowler to start work on Monk's upcoming CD. We arrived on the evening of the 6th, rented a car and headed off into Kingston. If you are familiar with Jamaica, you know that they drive on the opposite side and the steering wheel is on the “passenger” side also....which made for some interesting road trips the first couple day's, including the one from the airport to where we were staying in Kingston. Kudos to Rueben for driving the whole time we were there and thank god for the GPS supplied by AVIS, without which we would have never made it home......We arrived at our BnB tucked up against the mountains on the north side of Kingston an hr or so later and were pleasantly surprised by our “gated” accommodations. After unpacking, I wandered out to the road where you could see the moon hanging a little over the mountains which were lit up like christmas trees, and the musical beats and sounds coming from them.....wow....the beats were pouring out of the hills cascading from every direction.....something you just have to experience to understand. Friday we spent the day on a road trip up into the mountains to Nine Mile located in St. Ann, Jamaica, a place Bob Marley called home..... big_chief_monk_boudreaux_kingston_jamaica_jm_030714_048Two days after this past Mardi Gras on March 6th I had the pleasure of going down to Kingston Jamaica with good friends Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, his manager Rueben Williams and guitarist Damon Fowler to start work on Monk's upcoming CD.

What an amazing and spiritual and “Natural Mystic” experience that was.....one I'll never forget..... the drive up thru the mountains was a “memorable experience”of a different kind....self policing drivers, very small roads, very large mac trucks speeding around hairpin turns overlooking steep cliffs......you get the picture?? We spent the last 2 days at Tad's International Recording Studio joined by Jimmy Cliffs rhythm section ‘Unga’ Thompson(drummer) and Jason Welsh(bassist) aka “NOTICE”, to lay down a few tracks with Talking Heads sound engineer Stephen Stanley which not surprisingly went very well........These are the stills from the studio sessions with Monk and some of my impressions from other excursions while in Kingston.......I'll take the time to write a blog sometime this coming week....too much info for now......Enjoy the pics.....Jerry ;-) A musical slideshow and more pics can be seen at http://www.nativeorleanian.org/big_chief_monk_boudreaux_kingston_jamaica_sessions_March_2014<br/> ©2005-2014 Jerry Moran Native Orleanian LLCbig_chief_monk_boudreaux_kingston_jamaica_jm_030714_048Two days after this past Mardi Gras on March 6th I had the pleasure of going down to Kingston Jamaica with good friends Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, his manager Rueben Williams and guitarist Damon Fowler to start work on Monk's upcoming CD.

Needless to say, my man Kermit and anybody that was at Tips last Thursday night had a great time......my only regret was not being able to cut away from a commitment early enough to see Meschiya Lake who played prior to Kermit.....I always like to catch Kermit when he makes it Uptown to Tipitinas. I particularly enjoy the unpredictability of these gigs......

I particularly enjoy the unpredictability of these gigs......and apparently the pretty much packed downstairs at Tips did also.....especially the ladies......As always Kermit brings special guests along, like my good friend James “The Sleeping Giant” Winfield and Glen David Andrews, among others for this show. I also met up with some clients from Russia, The Igor Butman Jazz Orchestra et al who made it over to Tips after a gig across the lake........and of course they had a blast forming their own impromptu Second Line-ish<br/>dance gauntlet from the stage to the sound board at one point during the show.....A great tune up before the big show at NOCCA the next night where The Igor Butman Jazz Orchestra and Delfeayo Marsalis and the Uptown Jazz Orchestra traded licks for a couple hours.

Photo Shoot for The M&M's Melts In Your Mind at Living Room Studios New Orleans La. https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2013/11/photo-shoot-for-the-m-ms-melts-in-your-mind-at-living-room-studios-new-orleans-la

Every now and then a few musicians that already have their own successful gig's goin branch off into side projects, one of the latest of which is The M&M's, featuring Robert Mercurio and Stanton Moore of Galactic, Papa Mali and John Medeski. Screen Shot 2013-11-13 at 8.36.18 AMScreen Shot 2013-11-13 at 8.36.18 AM I heard about them sometime earlier this year playing at a fest in the NY area, and without even hearing a note, immediately saved those dates. You see, when you put four creative guys together of this caliber, you don't need to hear it first.......you just know something special will happen. Unfortunately I was not able to make it to where they were playing, and for the life of me I can't remember the festival(probably out of self preservation). So when I received a call from Papa Mali a couple weeks ago seeing if I had time to do a quick marketing shoot for The M&M's epk I was more than happy to oblige, even with having 3 shoots already scheduled in a 50 hr. period with quick turnaround. I mean hell, whats the difference between 3 and 4, sleep is overrated anyway......So fast forward two weeks and voila, we have the  release of 'Melts In Your Mind' , the premier single from the Supergroup The M&M's, mixed by Claudio Cueni and mastered by Kurt Wipfli,  brought to us by Nicholas Cunningham and Forever Humble Records who I am more than happy to have as my newest client.  There is a slideshow below with the soundtrack being an  interview by Jams Plus Media   with Papa Mali and Robert Mercurio about how the band was conceptualized and where they're headed.  And as for the art of  immediate gratification, the premier single "Melts In Your Mind" is ready for consumption on itunes

Really lookin forward to see'n where these guy's take it, and count me in, I'll be along for the ride! Jerry ;-)

Every once in a while, (or every day perhaps), I am reminded why we are so damn spoiled to live here New Orleans. The pulse of the culture(s) of south Louisiana beat's within all of us and it's misty dew(if one chooses to receive) protects us from the tragedy of a mundane existence. The Voice of the Wetlands Allstars played last night for the Harvest the Music series at Lafayette Square to a pretty large crowd as expected. This was the second time in a few weeks I have seen the band with Johnny Vidacovich and Stanton Moore both on drums, last night simultaneously.......now that's pretty damn special......and as Johnny leaves for another gig, Terrence Higgens plops down in his seat and takes over without missin a beat. Somethin else was different last night too......Cyril Neville and Big Chief Monk Boudreaux are on the Blues Cruise so they weren't avail., which at first thought is kinda sacrilegious......

Crescent City Blues and BBQ Festival 2013 https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2013/10/crescent-city-blues-and-bbq-festival-2013

Was able to make it by the Crescent City Blues and BBQ Fest over the weekend to see a couple of my favorite guitarists, good friend John Mooney who way slayin it in a large way, Sonny Landreth and a little lagniappe with Alvin Youngblood Hart. On Sunday I headed back over for a few hours primarily to see 10 yr old guitarist phenom Brandon Niederauer who I had seen a few youtube video's of him playin with Troy Turner on Bourbon Street.

On Sunday I headed back over for a few hours primarily to see 10 yr old guitarist phenom Brandon Niederauer who I had seen a few youtube video's of him playin with Troy Turner on Bourbon Street. I talked to Troy Turner before the Brandon went up and slayed it with the Lee Boys playin Hendrix's Voodoo Chile. You see, a long time ago I used to make regular trips(almost weekly up to Baton Rouge to see this 14yr old guitar phenom named Troy Turner who I caught wind of a few months after one of my heroes, Stevie Ray Vaughn, tragically passed away. Those shows renewed my faith that someone would be able to pick up the torch where Stevie left it and bring it to another level......kinda get the same feeling from Brandon Niederauer, who is even younger than Troy was when I first saw his magic. Keep your eyes and ears out for Brandon, cause if the stars line up properly, we will be hearing from this kid for a long long time

As always the Voice of the Wetlands Allstars closed out the VOW Fest 2013 with a blazing set capped off with Big Chief Monk Boudreaux putting myself and the rest of the fest in a trance to what I believe was “Me Donkey Want Water”.....after all I was in a trance so that may be the wrong song, or not. Got to hang out with Rueben and Nicole to watch the 4th Quarter of the Saints game, well, most of it.....with about a minute and a half left on the clock, I casually made my exit and headed back to the stage for a final dose of Chubby Carrier with Amanda Shaw, if they were gonna lose, I surely didn't need to witness it......Honestly, I think it's better that we lost this week, now we can just run the table and go win the Snow Bowl in NY. Anyway the undefeated season is over rated, look at what happened to the Patsies in the Super Bowl a few years ago when they were “undefeated”........

Other highlights from the set were Stanton Moore and Johnny Vidacovich tag teaminggg the hard drivin set on the drums, always good to see Mitch Woods on Keys, Johnny Sansone killin it, Anders Osborne, Waylon Thibodeaux, Tab Benoit.........all on one stage.....need I say more??? But honestly, just see'n a lot of my friends all in one place at one time on a beautiful night on the bayou is the reason I never miss the closing night of the Voice of the Wetlands Festival......it's priceless........Until next year, already lookin forward to the 2014 Friday Night Guitar Fights.......

Added this am, a couple Images from the Royal Southern Brotherhood Saturday night......Here are a few pics(I have many more but theres no way to do them all, just a taste till early next week...) from day 1 the Voice of the Wetlands Festival with Dash Rip Rock joined by Jim Dandy of Black Oak Arkansas.....yes the REAL Jim Dandy!! The evening was consummated with the annual Friday Night Guitar Fights where I heard sounds of guitars en mass that I have never heard come from a stage before, perhaps a “Guitar-gasm"............guess thats what happens when theres a 7 person rhythm section......Tommy Malone opened with an off the hook version of “Straight Shot”, then Zito's “Don't Think Cause Your Pretty”, Devon Allman led “No Way Out”, then Tab came on with “Night Train To Nashville”.....there were others by Bill Davis and Papa Mali that escape me, but one things for sure, I had a smile from ear to ear, along with everyone out there, truly an amazing musical “experience”.......great times!! Be sure to get down to the Voice of the Wetlands Festival today and tomorrow for a continuation of this incredible musical line up at Voice of the Wetlands Festival .

Dragon Smoke at Harvest the Music October 10th 2013 https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2013/10/dragon-smoke-at-harvest-the-music-october-10th-2103

So what the hell am I doin up at 3:00am this morning editing a shoot from last night. Two words....Dragon Smoke. I became sort of “dependent” on Dragon Smoke several years ago on a mid December night at Tipitinas, where they completely shredded it during the second set........only topped possibly by the show yesterday at Lafayette Square. And don't get me wrong, they are REALY good every show, but some pick you up and take you further away than others....last night was one of the further away ones........What makes the shows even better is how obvious it is that these guy's love to play together and feed off of each other, theres truly a special synergy between these cats.......

Being a side gig for Stanton Moore, Robert Mercurio, Ivan Neville, and Eric Lindell, catching Dragon Smoke as a unit is a kind of seasonal thing down here, Christmas and Jazz Fest Season to be specific.(I believe I heard DSmoke will be at Tips sometime in December, and as usual at the One Eyed Jacks mid week Jazz Fest show) Thankfully I got my hands on a couple of the recorded shows at One Eyed Jacks which I listen to more than frequently throughout the year.

Visit to the 911 Memorial last week...... https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2013/9/visit-to-the-911-memorial-last-week

While in New York last week for a shoot, I actually had a rare “free” day afterwards with nothing less than perfect weather to do a little shooting around the city. One thing I really wanted to do was go by the 911 Memorial, and I suppose it was one of those coincidences that 9/11 was just a few days away. nofp_new_york_city_jm_090513_013nofp_new_york_city_jm_090513_013While in New York last week for a shoot, I actually had a rare “free” day afterwards with nothing less than perfect weather to do a little shooting around the city. One thing I really wanted to do was go by the 911 Memorial, and I suppose it was one of those coincidences that 9/11 was just a few days away. Spent most of the day walking around lower Manhattan area and eventually was able to go to the Memorial. I walked by it a couple times but didn't go in at first due to some conflicting emotions and memories of that day that needed to be sorted out.....I remember it as if it were yesterday, getting ready for work with my better half Alex, who is a flight attendant and was supposed to work that morning. Anyway, after chillin out in Battery Park for a while I headed over.....From this mouth, there are no words to express the experience of the 911 Memorial, but on this most beautiful day, I took a few images that convey, at least visually, my “experience”.......along with some others from that day on my jaunt thru Chinatown towards Katz Deli.............Enjoy the pics....Jerry ;-) More pics can be seen at http://www.nativeorleanian.org/new_york_city_and_911_memorial_9_6_13

A Video card for Ernie Vincent's #1 Fan Ken H. in Spring Hill FL https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2013/8/a-video-card-for-ernie-vincents-1-fan-ken-h-in-spring-hill-fl

So I received an email from a big fan, Ken, of my man Ernie Vincent last week requesting an autographed image for his wall back in Spring Hill Fla.. Nothing unusual about this, no problem. As I communicated back and forth with Ken over the week, he confided in me about the “challenging” times he has been having health wise that basically have kept him dependent and home bound and have for 20 months. Ernie Vincent records a live video card for his #1 fan at the Studio of New Orleans photographer Jerry Moran.nofp_ernie_vincent_selection_jm_082413_001 I told Ken not to worry about any charges, that I'll see Ernie Saturday mornin and would ship to him next week, no worries. As I thought about it  a little more, I called Ernie and explained the situation and suggested that we take this to another level and not only brighten Ken's day, but do something special that would really impact Ken's world. In addition to the autographed print, I suggested we make Ken a live musical video card with a personal message, which Ernie thought was a fantastic idea. So while hangin out with Ernie at the studio/gallery this morning we made the video which came out great. Much love and positive vibs to Ernie Vincent's #1 Fan, Ken H. back in Spring Hill Florida.

 

Jerry ;-)

Cyril Neville New Release "Magic Honey" due out September 10th 2013 https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2013/8/cyril-neville-new-release-magic-honey-due-out-september-10th-2013

On September 10th, 2013, my good friend Cyril Neville aka “The Uptown Ruler”, will be releasing his new solo CD “Magic Honey” (Ruf Records). Under the direction of The Thunderbird Management Group (Rueben Williams), this will be the third straight CD I have had the pleasure of doing the marketing photography work for Cyril, the first being Cyril's “Brand New Blues” release back in 2009 followed by “The Essential Cyril Neville 1994-2007”, in addition to the Royal Southern Brotherhood's self titled debut release where Cyril fronts the new super group along with Devon Allman, Mike Zito, Charlie Wooten and Yonrico Scott. Cyril Neville &quot;Magic Honey&quot; CD Cover cyril_neville_magic_honey_cover On Magic Honey, Neville is backed by Cranston Clements (guitar), “Mean” Willie Green (drums), Carl Dufrene (bass) and Norman Caesar (keyboards). The record also features guest appearances from legendary Allen Toussaint (piano) and Dr. John (organ), as well as his Walter Trout and his Royal Southern Brotherhood bandmate Mike Zito (guitar). I got a good taste of Magic Honey during the recording sessions at Studio in the Country last fall and needless to say the record spews some serious fiya, from a cover of Rush's “Workin Man”(Credit Omari, Cyril's son for turnin Cyril on to RUSH) to what I would consider one of the more timeless, low down and nasty funked out New Orleans groove infused cuts that I haven't heard in a while, “Right Back on You”, nothing less than a hard core quintessential example of Cyril's undeniable influence and contribution to the actual d.n.a. of what we all know as New Orleans Funk which oozed out of the New Orleans music scene starting in the late 60's by front man Art Neville and the Meters, who rounded out there lineup with none other than percussionist/vocalist Cyril Neville. Cyril then launched into a 2 decade plus funkathon with New Orleans musical ambassadors The Neville Brothers. Oh, and by the way, Cyril and the Meter's were most recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, need I say more?? Cyril starts serving his latest musical delicacy “Magic Honey” on September 10th, trust me, get ya some......Jerry ;-)  You can also catch Cyril live when he embarks on an extensive tour in support of Magic Honey, just check his site for dates!  Images from Studio in the Country and the photo shoot can be accessed on the home page portfolio drop down entitled  Photo Shoots

Custom Layout Art Installation Featuring Classic New Orleans Molding and Trim Woodwork https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2013/8/custom-layout-art-installation-featuring-classic-new-orleans-molding-and-trim-woodwork

Back in April of 2010 I was doing a architectural marketing photo shoot for a local master carpenter. Along with all of the macro shots that were taken around the property, I continually found myself admiring the unbelievable original detail work and restoration on all of the trim and molding in the house. After I finished the “job” I headed back to the room where all of these pieces of art were laid out and captured a few images. So when a client contacted me a few weeks ago looking for something unique that had to do with New Orleans architecture, I knew I had exactly what she wanted One of the services I provide to clients is creating a to scale digital layout showing exactly what the art will look like on the wall prior to and purchase decisions.

Needless to say, she was blown away by what I sent for her to look over. Last night, I went and personally hung the art for her and the look on her face when done was priceless.

Satchmo Fest 2013 https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2013/8/satchmo-fest-2013

Not that I had plans to be in town last weekend, actually was supposed to be on the road with Monk, Bo and the Wild Magnolias in NY, DC and somewhere else. But I had started some construction in my studio/gallery earlier in the week that couldn't be left “open ended. No problem here, Satchmo Summer Fest was going on a few blocks away over at the Old U.S. Mint. I actually hadn't been to Satchmo Fest in a few years cause of da HEAT.......but little did I know Marci Shramm, Executive Director at French Quarter Festivals, Inc and Co. had addressed this issue with big beautiful tents in addition to other upgrades for Satchmo Fest which REALLY make a huge difference. I am also convinced that the small super thunderstorm on Saturday, aka air conditioning, that popped up and stayed right across the river as the Treme Brass Band hit the stage at 2:30 was surely Uncle Lionel's doing....;-) Allen Toussaint at Satchmo Summer Fest 2013. nofp_allen_toussaint_satchmo_summer_fest_jm_080213_002 So on Friday and Saturday I biked back and forth a few times between my studio and the fest and I am really glad I did, and of course I popped off a few pics here and there. On Friday I was able to catch Allen Toussaint, Meschiya Lake, and a couple others, and Saturday afternoon among others, I got my Treme Brass Band fix, along with Yoshi Toyama and the Dixie Saints and a closing set, for me, with Ellis Marsalis. On top of all that was able to see a bunch of friends I hadn't seen in a while out there which is always cool. I am sure Sunday was a hoot too, planned on going but but was stuck preppin for some sheet rock work at the studio/gallery that dragged on all day. Here are a few pics from Satchmo Fest 2013. Enjoy!!! ©2005-2013 Jerry Moran Native Orleanian LLC More pics and a musical slideshow can be seen at http://www.nativeorleanian.org/satchmo_summer_fest_2013

Nine Lives shoot at Piety Street https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2012/12/Nine-Lives-shoot-at-Piety-Street I received a call from Chris Joseph of Threadhead Records Wednesday morning asking if I had time to go over to Piety Street Studios to document a day of recording for the “Nine Lives” Musical written by Paul Sanchez and Coleman deKay. Once Chris started reeling out the names of the performers, including Allen Toussaint, Wendell Pierce, John Boutte, Mayor Mitch Landrieu, and so on…my only response was, “I’ll be there in a half hr or so” as I live 3 blocks from the studio. That was definetely a day I will not forget anytime soon, as one of my favorite things to shoot is the creative process in the studio. Here are some of the pics, you can read more about the “Nine Lives” projest at http://ninelivesmusical.wordpress.com/2010/12/22/pics-from-the-studio-1219-1225/ Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday’s to all!

Welcome to the home on Native Orleanian Fine Photography https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2012/11/Welcome-to-the-home-on-Native-Orleanian-Fine-Photography  

If this is your first time here, glad to have you visit!  Been a pretty busy last few months but have finally had some time to go through the past year, at least a little bit….Over the past few months met a ton of new folks and it has been a pleasure talking with all, so many people out there from all over truly moved by our wonderful and unique culture.  There is a lot of material to see on the site, you can expand the categories or older posts tab at the bottom of this page and look around that way, along the top of this page there are several tabs to activate by clicking, the most popular being the portfolio/slideshow tab which will bring you to a page where I have posted about 15 musical slideshows of some events I have covered and shoots I have done, ENJOY!   I have only had the time to put about 10% of my work on the site but you get the idea of what I do, the good news is that I have a Studio and Gallery in the Bywater at which you can have access to all of my work.   I have been transferring most of my work over to my web store which can be accessed from the store tab above or this link… http://www.nativeorleanian.org/       Having people over to the gallery is the  part of what I do that I enjoy most because ultimately we all become good friends after what was supposed to be a 20 minute visit turns into 5 hours.  So don’t hesitate to give me a buzz and make an appointment, I live next door and work here so if I’m not out on a shoot, I’m generally available by appointment at anytime my schedule permits!  I have an inventory of autographed limited edition prints on hand autographed by Dr. John, George Porter Jr., Kermit Ruffins, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Al “Carnival Time” Johnson, Anders Osborne, Cyril Neville, John Mooney, Uncle Lionel Batiste, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews and Juvenile and Big Sam Williams and if I don’t have them on hand I can easily arrange to have any print autographed upon request, just inquire for details….and you can be assured that the musicians are paid generously from your purchase of these special prints.  As you can see what my passion is, I do have a large inventory of New Orleans scenes and Architecture which embody the same beautiful message. I also am set up for on site or in studio photo shoots and have many large corporate clients working with them in fields such as marketing, architecture and food. I also shoot occasional weddings alone, concentrating on capturing the most personal, powerful and intimate moments of such a special occasion. If you like my work and want to see the work from any of these fields, do not hesitate to contact me and I will be more than happy to send you comprehensive references and portfolio’s in the field selected. Enjoy the site and I look forward to talking soon! Jerry

This week Anders Osborne put on another amazing show which was  escalated to another level when the horns from Bonarama and Dave Malone from the Radiators joined Anders onstage to cook up some good “gumbo”.

Mac has been on tour all over the world promoting his new CD “Locked Down” (KILLER CD BTW) lately so it was really nice visiting with him this week and of course the show was icing on the cake. Additionally, Jon Cleary joined Mac onstage(a nice treat on it’s own) for the whole show trading licks on the keys and guitar throughout. Definitely a great night of music at the yearly “Harvest the Music” shows every Wednesday at 5 thru October 24th, next week, Anders Osborne with the Bonerama Horns….ouch!

Anders Osborne thrashes DeLuna Fest 2012 https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2012/9/Anders-Osborne-thrashes-DeLuna-Fest-2012 Headed over to Pensacola with my friend Brian and crew yesterday to catch my man Anders Osborne at the DeLuna Fest. Hadn’t seen Anders in a while so was really lookin forward and was not disappointed, as if I ever am….I heard Anders was not feeling well at all and when we arrived it was even more apparent, hadn’t seen him like this in a long time, if ever…..Honestly, most woulda bagged the gig under these conditions, but that was never an option for my gritty friend. I can remember a couple times over the years under similar conditions Anders internalizing the situation and pulling off some of the more amazing shows I have seen from him, somehow flipping the table on negative circumstances, transforming them into fodder to add even more fire to his already venomous performances. From the first chord, it was apparent that this would be the case again, as the band ripped through an hr or so set supported by bassist Carl Dufrene and drummer Eric Bolivar, to the delight of the beach ridden crowd….. Anders is one of those very special artists that even under normal circumstances, goes through a sort of metamorphosis once onstage,literally and figuratively , pouring every ounce of his being into the show while taking the crowd along for the ride. And a good ride it was……Enjoy the pics…jerry ;-)icon_wink More pics can be seen along with a musical slideshow at http://www.nativeorleanian.org/anders_osborne_deluna_fest_2012 ©2005-2012 Jerry Moran Native Orleanian LLC

I got ahold of both soundtracks to listen to while editing, almost like being at the play again! And what a performance it was in front of a packed house throughout. I have had the pleasure of shooting the play several times, one would think it would get old but my eyes still well up during certain parts of the performance……The play never gets old as it continually evolves as does our culture….. I can’t say enough about the cast, new and old, and of course the band.

Both were outdoor fests which was a nice change of scenery. Definitely need to get back up to the Philly Folk Fest, hopefully next time the weather is a little better. Heading up to Norwich the next day was a beautiful drive through upstate NY coupled with amazing weather, actually got down to the 40′s at night which was a treat for this southern boy considering its August…..Both fest’s had great crowds regardless of the weather and were obviously looking forward to seeing the Voice of the Wetlands Allstars. Had an awesome time and met a slew of new friends up north, look forward to visiting again! Time to check out what “Isaac” is up to, hopefully we don’t have another unwelcomed visitor down here next week……More images and a musical slideshow can be seen at http://www.nativeorleanian.org/vow_allstars_philly_folk_chenago_fest_8_16_and_17_12 Jerry ©2005-2012 Jerry Moran Native Orleanian LLC

The band hadn’t been together as a unit in months, Johnny Sansone and Cyril Neville(Royal Southern Brotherhood) both had come off extensive tours in Europe with their primary gigs and hadn’t been home yet, and the rest have been busy here in the states as usual. Under “normal” circumstances one would think it would take a gig or two to get everything synchronized, but there is nothing “normal” about this group. The band ripped into “Bayou Breeze” as if they had been together for years. (Kinda like that best friend you have but see every 3 years, but pick right up where you left off, regardless….) Prior to starting Johnny V was just playing some slinky slow grooves on the drums which had me mesmerized and smiling, and like a whip in sync with Tabs opening guitar licks, slammed me and the rest of the theatre straight into a 2 hr show which ranks up there with the best I’ve seen from them. From that moment on I knew myself and everyone attending the shows were in for a treat. These guys have so much fun playing together, and it’s obvious on stage as each watches the the others in amazement with smiles on their faces throughout, kinda like kids on a playground, their playground. Live music just doesn’t get much better than this for sure……and hangin out on the road with friends for a week isn’t so bad either. Here are some images from the Falls Church and FTC show’s , I’ll post the rest from Highline Ballroom, Philly Folk Fest, and Chenago Blues Fest as I have time.

Uncle Lionel Batiste Jazz Funeral Tributes and Second Lines https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2012/7/Uncle-Lionel-Batiste-Jazz-Funeral-Tributes-and-Second-Lines Stills can be seens along with slideshows at http://www.nativeorleanian.org/complete_uncle_lionel_bastiste_tributes_and_second_lines

Over the years I have heard about and had some magical moments at the Candlelight Lounge, last nights tribute to the legacy of Uncle Lionel Batiste Sr. was one of those nights that words just can’t convey….at least right now. Immediately upon walking in the door, you were bombarded my the music of the Treme Brass Band and a wall of heat that on any other night may have turned you around, personally, I like it like that……and so did everyone else cause the place was packed all night…….along with a sea of people inn the streets……..I once talked with my friend John Mooney about what moments I try to capture thru my photography, I explained that sometimes, we as a crowd get taken away during shows and dropped back off in what seems like 10 minutes, when in reality 2 hours sometimes more went by……..John responded, “Yeah Jerry, I call that hitt’n “The Note”, we go there too……Well last night the Treme Brass Band and guests were hitting “The Note” from the time I walked in the Candlelight till I left soaking wet with a big smile on my face a little after 1:00am…….That’s never happened before, at least in my experience…..Unc was definitely in da house last night. Musical Slideshow can be seen at http://www.nativeorleanian.org/uncle_lionel_candlelight_tribute ©2005-2012 Jerry Moran Native Orleanian LLC Also I have posted a video from last night on youtube at Treme Brass Band Tribute To Uncle Lionel Batiste at the Candlelight Lounge

7-11_12 Uncle Lionel’s pre Candlelight Second Line
So yesterday around 5 I was sitting around in my studio and a tweet came across my iphone from the Treme Brass Band, “Second Line in the 6th Ward NOW!”, so I hopped in my car and zig zagged around Esplanade for a few minutes, windows down……around Treme and Esplanade started hearing those all familiar beats……I abandoned the car and took off towards the sounds, and there it was, probably just leaving Kermits Bar on St. Bernard. For the next few hrs we went into the Quarter, up and down streets, stop’s at Lafittes, Cathedral, the River and then up St. Peter St.. It was inevitable what happened next, the Second Line marched into Preservation Hall, where a show was going on with paying customers packing the place as usual. Not surprisingly PHB stepped aside and let the Second Line pay tribute to Uncle Lionel Batiste. Words can not do this justice so just enjoy the pics……Afterwards headed up Bourbon St, then back to Tuba Fats Square and the Candlelight Lounge where in an hr, The Treme Brass Band would proceed to pay tribute to Uncle Lionel well into the night, which is a whole different story, I think you have an idea though…..will get to those pics and vid soon, need to rest up a little for Unc’s daily Second Line later this afternoon…..Enjoy the pics!

July 13 Second Line for Uncle Lionel
It didn’t matter whether it was raining with lightning and thunder, the people were coming out to pay their respects to Uncle Lionel Batiste with a massive spirited Second Line. I arrived in over at Tuba Fats Square around 4 walking through a steady downpour with a less than sufficient umbrella. On the way there it was obvious that something big was about to happen. On my six or seven block walk, across the street from the Quarter, behind me from Treme and St. Claude and in front of me, people dressed out in white all converging on one spot, Tuba Fats Square and the Candlelight Lounge where the Second Line would begin. With the rains comin down most people were outside and some were in the Candlelight ting “tuned up” with the Brass Band and in no real rush. Around 5:30 or so the rain had slacked and I wandered outsidewith my friend Andy Levin, he told me somethin’s goin on….I saw Benny Jones walkin up St Phillip towards N. Claiborne and asked him whats goin on, he said, “Lining up, and pointed to the parking lot behind Charbonnet Funeral Home”. I followed the brass band and realized this was how they were gonna get everyone to follow and basically go around the block to line up the Second Line……The Brass Band was in high gear at this point and I saw why when we turned the corner behind Charbonnet. There was a garage door that the initial Second Line approached and the first guy started knocking , followed by a second, and a third….this was the back door to Charbonnet Funeral home, I then realized they were knockin for Unc………..with the band playin louder and louder, they kept knockin……there was no answer, at least not of this world…..after an amount of time went by that I really couldn’t tell you how long it was, one of the Grand Marshals pointed around the building, a sign to everyone to move on and begin the Second Line celebration of Uncle Lionel Batiste’s life and legacy……Initially when this was was happening, my eyes started well up with tears as they are now while writing this…..That passed in time and the Second Line proceeded back to N. Robertson and slowly proceeded along a shortened route, ending at Sweet Lorraine’s……As you can see in the images, there were hundreds perhaps thousands of people in the Second Line and more waiting on the streets for it to pass and then join it…when we crossed Esplanade the second Line flooded both sides of St Claude all the way to Sweet Lorraine’s…..It was quite a day and beautiful in many many ways……bittersweet but beautiful….Enjoy the pics, more and a musical slideshow at http://www.nativeorleanian.org/july_13_second_line_uncle_lionel_batiste Jerry ©2005-2012 Jerry Moran Native Orleanian LLC

July 16 Second Line for Uncle Lionel Batiste
Over the past week there have been many second lines and events here and all over the world honoring Uncle Lionel Batiste and his legacy. Today was about the kids, teaching and passing on traditions, something Uncle Lionel tirelessly did on most Sunday’s in the French Quarter. Yesterday the daily Second Lines continued, this one starting at the Candlelight Lounge in Treme. Without fail, James “12” Andrews has been a fixture leader and organizer of these events, when I heard a child’s voice on WWOZ around noon yesterday announce, “James says all musicians meet at Tuba Fats Square at 5 o’clock”, I knew it was on….I talked to James for a bit about Unc and what will be goin on later this week, soon after which the band came into the Candlelight for final preparations. This day I did not take many images but just wanted to soak everything in, I immediately started to see James assuming the role (as he always has)of teacher and mentor, as I watched him throw his hands up in the air the first time the band tried to proceed out of the Candlelight, something wasn’t right that time…..after a short talk, the band started up again with James lookin on, finally a look of approval and a point towards the door…..we hit the streets with a crowd including Uncle Norman, Unc’s brother , some family and many others, first loopin behind Charbonnet to play for Unc….then to Kermit Ruffins Speakeasy and across N Claiborne into the 6th Ward. We made a few other stops along the way, the whole time with James orchestrating the band and keepin everything right. We got back to to the Candlelight where I hung around for a bit for a sausage po boy. I went to tell James goodbye asking,”You’ll be here tomorrow huh?” to which he replied, “Jerry, I Told Unc we’d be doin these Second Lines till the cat’s come home……” and I have no doubt he was serious as I left with a big smile as I am sure Uncle Lionel was smiling down on us also…….

july_17_second_line_uncle_lionel_batiste
Yesterday there was a significant increase in the intensity of Uncle Lionel’s daily second line…..if Monday was all about the kids, then Tuesday was about the elders. The second line started at Kermit’s Bar over on St. Bernard on this day which set the tone.. Led as usual by family and band leader James Andrews, the second line band today was populated by a number of the “heavy hitters” in the thick Brass Band community et al…Tuba Phil, Corey Henry, Kid Merv, and Calvin Johnson just to name a few……..theres not a lot to say about it as the images speak for themselves, I did take some vid which I will get to at some point. Also this will probably be the last set I will post for a few days at least as I will be intimately involved in documenting the next several days events…..

7-20-12 Uncle Lionel Post Mahalia Jackson Second Line
And then the rains came….again. Uncle Lionel’s Celebration of Life at Mahalia Jackson Theatre last Friday was a real thing of beauty, but the day was left incomplete due to the torrential downpours, floods, etc…..Apparently Unc wasn’t quite ready……But that didn’t stop Mayor Landrieu and a mass of people exiting the theatre into an epic deluge…Today, we will send Unc off with a Jazz Funeral procession starting at Charbonnet-Candlelight Lounge at 11am…..Enjoy the pics and see ya’ll out there….more and a musical slideshow at http://www.nativeorleanian.org/july_20_second_line_uncle_lionel_batiste ©2005-2012 Jerry Moran Native Orleanian LLC

7-23-12 Uncle Lionel Batiste’s Jazz Funeral Second Line
The rain held off, the sun shined oppressively hot, and after a little over 2 weeks of second lining almost daily to celebrate his legacy and life, we were able to give Uncle Lionel Batiste the Jazz Funeral he so deserved. Originally scheduled for post Mahalia Jackson ceremonies last Friday, the procession had to wait the weekend to send off Uncle Lionel. Personally I think he had a hand in the deluge on Friday, and Wednesday for that matter, but the buckets of heavenly water seemed to have run dry by Monday, which happened to also be my birthday. There is not a place I would have rather been on this day, perhaps a last gesture from my friend, who knows…..editing this event was almost like being there again, towards the end my eyes well up with tears as they did yesterday, even more so when we arrived at Mt. Olivet to send Unc off to fly away to the “Glory Land”. Once the ceremony was over a light mist fell from the sunny sky but there was no turning back……farewell my friend. Much love till we meet again…jerry ;-)icon_wink Perhaps tomorrow I will write something else about the day, need to step away for now….Enjoy the Pics, More can be seen at http://www.nativeorleanian.org/http://www.nativeorleanian.org/july_23_jazz_funeral_uncle_lionel_batiste

Uncle Lionel Batiste in da House with the Treme Brass Band June 26 2012 https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2012/6/Uncle-Lionel-Batiste-in-da-House-with-the-Treme-Brass-Band-June-26-2012 6-29-12 Updated the music to Uncle Lionel singing “Back O’Town Blues” from the Treme Brass Band CD “Gimme My Money Back ” So when I read that Uncle Lionel would be at d.b.a. last night at the Treme Brass Band’s weekly residency, my initial reaction was it was a bad joke having seen him last week and knowing what the situation was……but after thinking about it a smile came to my face along with the thought, “If there is anyone who could pull this off, it would be Uncle Lionel” Just to verify I called him and talked with one of his daughters, and indeed it was true. I am not at my best under these circumstances, but when Uncle Lionel arrived, the Treme Brass Band was on about the third song of the first set, after which trumpet player Kenneth Terry announced Uncle Lionel was in the house and asked him “Whatya wanna hear Uncle Lionel?” to which he replied “Gimme My Money Back”…..this put a big smile on my, and eveyones faces and eased everything a bit, at least for me…. After the first set I was gonna head out but was met by one of Uncle Lionel’s daughters, I believe Erica, who I had met last week visiting up in his apt, she asked if I would take a pic of him and his daughters for which I was honored and more than happy to do, which kept me there for another hr or so.(Obviously that’s where I was supposed to be….) Last night was a beautiful tribute to the man and his legacy with friends and family by his side, a truly spiritual and rare occurrence. Much Love to Uncle Lionel!

WWOZ Annual Piano Night at the House of Blues https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2012/5/WWOZ-Annual-Piano-Night-at-the-House-of-Blues I was able, or made a conscious decision, to attend a few more night shows during Jazz Fest this year, which I normally don’t do in lieu of being out at the fairgrounds all day, every day.  One  of them was WWOZ’s Piano night at the House of Blues.  This is one show I really am glad I attended,(Thank You Dwayne Breashears!!) as it was a nice change of pace and I was able to see a few of my favorite “key ticklers” including Bob Andrews, John Gros, Ike Stubblefield, Joe Krown, and Bob Malone….. The HOB had all three rooms going at once,  the Main Room , Parish and Foundation,  so it was like walking around in an old haunted house(childhood memories) where each room you walked into there was an amazing pianist at work instead of scary goblins…..This made it hard for me to leave as I had to go shoot Instruments a Comin at Tips that evening, which I arrived at an hr and a half later than planned. I thought I would miss Walter who played first, of course as I walked in the side door he was just getting started…..Jazz Fest timing perhaps…..I should have known something was up when on the way to Tips, Professor Longhairs “Tipitina” was played on OZ, which I cranked up all the way……the song ended as I pulled up and Walter started as I walked in……nice….;-)  Enjoy the pics!     ©2005-2012  Jerry Moran Native Orleanian LLC

Gambits Big Easy Awards April 23 2012 https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2012/4/Gambits-Big-Easy-Awards-April-23-2012 Here are some of the images from Gambit’s “Big Easy Awards” on 4/23/11. I was there with the band I manage,Ernie Vincent and the Top Notes, who were nominated in the category Best Rhythm and Blues 2011 along with my friends Walter Wolfman Washington and Dr. John……kinda a no lose situation…It was a real nice evening and great hanging out with friends, I wasn’t working the event but of course I had my camera on me and couldn’t resist popin off a few frames. The highlight of the evening was Walter Wolfman Washington receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award from none other than presenter Irma Thomas……another classic moment was when Mac received the award for Best Rhythm and Blues 2011, proceeded to the stage to receive the award, and in classic Mac style, accepted the award and immediately said, “I’m givin this award to Walter….” and marched off the stage to present the award to Walter. Johnny Vidacovich and wife Debra MC’d the evening which was as entertaining as one would expect from Johnny V, and there was some really great music including Irma Thomas, Gal Holiday and the Honkey Tonk Revue, and a supa group including Walter, George Porter Jr., Ivan Neville, Dr. John, Ben Ellman and Johnny Vidacovich. Rebirth grabbed a couple awards, which they must be getting used too…. The rest of the winners and details can be seen at this link http://www.bestofneworleans.com/blogofneworleans/archives/2012/04/23/big-easy-music-award-winners-announced It was a great was to kick off Jazz Fest week for sure, 2 more days till day one! Definitely gonna go check out Tab Benoit at Lafayette Square today to keep the ball rollin….Enjoy the pics….jerry ;-)icon_wink Oh…… and of course had to stop off at d.b.a. on the way home to catch a little Glen David Andrews…..

Super Sunday with the Mardi Gras Indians https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2012/4/Super-Sunday-with-the-Mardi-Gras-Indians Here are some of the images I have been able to get to from Super Sunday 2011. Had a great day cruising the route with Big Monk Boudreaux and friends and chillin out at the park afterwards. Some pretty pretty Wild Mardi Gras Indians were everywhere, what a sight to behold. Also went to St. Joseph’s Night on Monday, all I can say as “WOW”…..I make it a point to go most every year to this night time exhibition in the streets, all the pretty suits under the night light is unbelievable. I’ll post some pics from St. Joseph’s Night in a day or so….in the meantime enjoy these….jerry

Leo Nocentelli and the Iko Allstars rock Tipitinas https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2012/2/Leo-Nocentelli-and-the-Iko-Allstars-rock-Tipitinas After a night with Papa Grows Funk, Glen David Andrews and Big Chief Monk Boudreaux last Friday, I closed the weekend Saturday night at Tipitinas with and incredible show featuring Leo Nocentelli’s “The Meters Experience” with Bill “The Buddah” Dickens on bass(he was killin it all night), Jamal Bati…ste, and CR Gruver. Opening up was the Iko Allstars with Billy Iuso, CR Gruver, Mean Willie Green and more playin a series of killer Grateful Dead tunes….they had the joint rockin when I arrived about halfway through the set. Leo’s 2 set show was stellar as usual. I always know I had a great time when I wake up the next day hearing Leo’s guitar riffs bouncing around in my head till early evening. Enjoy the Pics!!

Tis the season, Papa Grows Funk and Glen David Andrews at Tipitinas https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2012/2/Tis-the-season-Papa-Grows-Funk-and-Glen-David-Andrews-at-Tipitinas What a busy weekend for music, caught a few great shows last Friday at Tips Uptown with Papa Grows Funks and Glen David Andrews, nice double bill…….what initially caught my attention was Glen playin over at Tips…..don’t think I’ve ever seen him there and I was not disappointed. I also haven’t seen Papa Grows Funk at night in a club in a long while, living a few blocks from dba tend to keep be in the hood! I was really impressed with both shows, especially PGF, who kicked off the set with what only can be called an evil version of “Pass It”. Hung around for a few more and then headed down to Blue Nile for Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, pics to come on that show. What I do regret kinda is not staying for the 3rd set, which Glen promised at the end of his set…..I am sure it was memorable having both bands up at one, as Glen said, “This was the battle of the Monday night bands(Glen holds court at dba on Monday’s and PGF at the Maple Leaf), were gonna combine forces for set three and melt you like buttah!” I am sure it was incredible…..enjoy the pix!!

Royal Southern Brotherhood debut CD on the horizon https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2012/2/Royal-Southern-Brotherhood-debut-CD-on-the-horizon Late last December I had the distinct pleasure of joining the Royal Southern Brotherhood, Cyril Neville, Mike Zito, Devon Allman, Yonrico Scott and Charlie Wooten, for a couple days at Dockside Studio to do cd and marketing photo shoots while the final touches were put on the bands soon to be released (May 9th) debut cd. This is a collection of images from that shoot, excluding some of the best, and of course my favorites, which will be used for the cd design and inlay booklet and marketing of the band. As soon as they are released by the label, I’ll post on my site. Regardless, I think you get the picture. Don’t have much to say about the new cd except get ready for some fiya!! Here’s a little info about the band… “Before they even hit a chord, Royal Southern Brotherhood have your attention. In the US South, where music is religion, two rock ‘n’ roll bloodlines tower above all others. In the saloon bars from Mississippi to Maryland, mere mention of the Allman and Neville Brothers casts a magic spell. Conversation falls silent. Pool balls stop rolling. Ten-gallon hats are tipped in respect and beer-bottles raised in salute. These aren’t just bands, they’re gods, and with a lineup comprising both the iconic Cyril Neville and Devon Allman, Royal Southern Brotherhood come pre-loaded with expectations. Don’t worry: They can match them. The family tree might be auspicious, but this new band trades on talent, not genealogy. It’s not about rock history: It’s about the here-and-now.
Right now, the buzz is all about Royal Southern Brotherhood’s debut album, bottled with producer Jim Gaines in Louisiana. But let’s rewind to the summer of 2010 and the stifling heat of New Orleans: the city that both hosted the Allmans’ early residence as house band at The Warehouse, and provided the backdrop to the pivotal meeting between Cyril, Devon and Mike Zito. Talk turned to forming a new breed of blues-rock band, and when jams began at a secluded studio in the city’s Garden District, the fizzing chemistry was too strong to deny. Here they are NOW the Royal Southern Brotherhood.” Go to http://www.royalsouthernbrotherhood.com/ for tour dates, I’ll see ya in New York on March 9th!

Good times last month doing the shoots for Royal Southern Brotherhood’s debut cd at Dockside Studio My man Devon Allman on one of the many amazing songs on the new cd “I really hate posing for photos ..so for the ROYAL SOUTHERN BROTHERHOOD photo shoot I was so friggin glad to have the talented photog tell me “just play …and I’ll capture the shit” …nice work Jerry Moran”

Offbeats 2011 Best of the Beat Awards https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2012/1/Offbeats-2011-Best-of-the-Beat-Awards What a blast last Friday night at the Best of the Beat Awards. Spent most of the evening hangin with friends Rueben Williams, Papa Mali, Tab Benoit, Dr. John, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Charlie Wooten, Cyril, Art and Gayneille Neville, et al….and enjoyed another truly incredible tribute to George Porter Jr. that featured Dr. John, Art Neville, Monk Boudreaux, Papa Mali and many more, and then a super-duper enhanced version of the Running Pardners with Porter, John Gros, Mark Mullins, Brint Anderson, Tracy Griffith, Jeff Albert. I was also able to catch a little of Glen David Andrews and the Soul Rebels while feasting on the wonderful food made available by many awesome restaurants around town, then enjoyed a set by the Givers and bounced over to another stage with Big Freedia….Great to see my buddy Andrew Duhon receive the award for best singer/songwriter. You can see who all the winners were on Offbeats website at http://www.offbeat.com/2012/01/28/best-of-the-beat-2011-music-awards-the-winners/  and the images from the Business Awards and Tribute to George Porter Jr. held at the Joy Theatre Wednesday can be see at this link.  Hats off to Jan Ramsey and the staff of Offbeat for putting on a stellar event Friday at  the Best of the Beat Awards! I assure you, no one in attendance will forget that night anytime soon!!

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! Images also posted in my web store at this link http://www.nativeorleanian.org/p349313085

2011 Voodoo Experience New Orleans Louisiana https://www.nativeorleanian.org/blog/2011/10/2011-Voodoo-Experience-New-Orleans-Louisiana Taking a short break from revamping my photography studio and gallery this am and had some time do some “edit therapy”……… went back thru The New Orleans BINGO! Show performance at Voodoo Fest  a couple weeks ago, definitely one of my favorite shows from this years fest.  What an amazing performance on all accounts…..

Finally made it all the way through the Voodoo Fest line up, at least what I saw…..added Peelander-Z, Portugal the Man(great show btw), a few Ray Davies, Snoop Dog, Social Distortion TV on the Radio and Tommy Malone. Need to make a second pass thru a few shows when I have time, like The New Orleans Bingo!

Added some more from a couple shows already visited in addition to some Dr. John with Walter Wolfman Washington, Irma Thomas, and Cyril Neville, some of the Meters and Raconteurs……More to come…

Been having a blast out at Voodoo Fest 2011 in City Park over the weekend…..started off Friday with some time at the Bingo Parlor with the highly energetic and entertaining Japanese punk band Peelander-Z, great show…….Jeremy Lyons with members of Morphine was great at The Preservation Hall Stage followed by Beausoleil with Dr. Michael White…..Caught a little Ani DiFranco with Ivan Neville and Herlin Riley. Ernie Vincent and the Top Notes were smokin on the Pres Hall stage a little Quintron and Miss Pussycat and then of course SOUNDGARDEN, the highlight of the day for me. Saturday continued with many others including Tommy Malone and the Hard Heads, Social Distortion, Snoop Dog who was incredible especially when joined on stage by MystiKal…..won’t forget that show too soon…..Blink 182 was great too along with Bobby Rush and of course the New Orleans Bingo Show, but the set that was on total and complete fire was Ivan Neville and Dumpstafunk joined by Walter Wolfman Washington, members of Fishbone and others….wow is all I can say about that show. One more day with Mac, the Original Meters, and more…..here are some quickies I was able to do this am….many many more to come next week…..

here are some vids done by Voodoo Fest enjoy!!

I am delivering checks to the clinic today for $191.41 and musicians benefited directly in the amt of $200 from sales of autographed pieces sold! Once again, I would like to thank everyone who supported and attended this memorable event, and my corporate partner The Gerber Group/Whiskey Blue New Orleans. Can’t wait till the next event…….Jerry ;-)icon_wink

10-4-11   After several phone calls yesterday alerting me that my web store was down I discovered that the server for my store host was down all day yesterday. Everything is back up and working now. Since the store was basically unavailable yesterday I am EXTENDING this web event 1 more day through Wednesday October 5th, my apologies for any inconvenience.

The event at Whiskey Blue last week was a blast and a success. Autographed prints and canvases were purchased at the event itself whereby the musicians represented in the purchased pieces benefited directly from these sales as always. Additionally a percentage of these same sales and Whiskey Blue’s Bar sales that evening will be donated to the New Orleans Musicians Clinic. For all those that were unable to attend, as stated in my initial event invite, I will be having a “Web Store Event” from today, 10-1-11 thru Tuesday 10-4-11. I will donate a percentage of ALL sales made within this time period to the New Orleans Musicians Clinic. All purchases during this period will also be able to enjoy a 15% discount of regular pricing by entering “Musicians Clinic” in the coupon code box at checkout. All genres of my work including architecture and culture are included in this event. My web store can be accessed thru the “store” tab on my website at http://nativeorleanian.com/ If you don’t see an image that you are interested in within my web store or have any questions at all, do not hesitate to contact me directly. This is a great opportunity for all to save a few bucks and support the Musicians Clinic at the same time.
