Few things go better together than the Neville Brothers and New Orleans. The ambassadors of Crescent City funk and soul close out Jazz Fest 2009 at the Fairgrounds on Sunday.
And to gear you up, tune in Friday morning at 9am to hear the youngest Neville, Cyril play some live music, talk about his new disc Brand New Blues and candidly address issues of class, race and music when it comes to his city's recovery (or lack thereof, as he puts it).
In fact, he had so much to say on the latter issue, that we're airing his morning session in two parts.
Aside from the yodeling of Aaron, Cyril's voice is distinctively soulful and delivered with a world and social conscience that recalls the spirit of his hero Bob Marley. Plus, his percussion prowess help make the Neville's shows such a dancefest!
Cyril Neville of The Meters and the Neville Brother on TMD this Friday!
Check out Cyril on the bongos and one of his many cool outfits!
