Planting the seed

Chelsey Cope’s new band, Elms, is as earthy and native to Oklahoma as the trees that are their namesake. The soulful folk four-piece’s debut EP, Parallel Lines, was recorded at Bell Labs Recording Studio in Norman and is on its way in September. But the band has already given us a tease, with its first single, “Burn,” going live on SoundCloud on July 14.

Dr. John-Right Place, Right Time: Live at Tipitina's - Mardi Gras '89

None August 10th, 2006


Hyena/Skinji Brim

A lot of New Orleans music tends to have several common qualities: kinda jazzy, kinda funky and lotsa fun.
One of the best-known ambassadors of the New Orleans sound, Dr. John, and his music tend to embody these same qualities. That's more than evident on "Right Place, Right Time," the newly released live album from the Dr. John vaults.
As the second volume in a series that's resulted from Dr. John's partnership with Hyena Records to release some of his best live shows to the public, this album showcases our hero at the legendary New Orleans club Tipitina's during Mardi Gras 1989. Along with his six-piece band, Dr. John runs through a set of classic numbers' some his own and some that belong to others. All the while, his timeless piano strutting shines through, the horns are strong, the rhythm solid and the vibes pure. A good listen.
