Ivan Neville Presents ‘Piano Sessions’ Livestream
Ivan Neville conducted a Facebook livestream on Saturday dubbed Piano Sessions. The Dumpstaphunk frontman delivered solo piano renditions of a number of songs from his 1988 debut solo album, If My Ancestors Could See Me Now, as well as covers from Prince, Sly & The Family Stone, Nirvana, Fleetwood Mac and more.
Neville kicked off the session with “All Over Again” followed by the jazz classic “Fever. Ivan then got into material from Ancestors with “Another Day’s Gone By,” “Falling Out Of Love” (originally a duet with Bonnie Raitt), “Money Talks” and “Not Just Another Girl.” Ivan then offered up his segue of “Stay What You Are” into Sly Stone’s “It’s A Family Affair.”
Neville would also deliver his co-write with Anders Osborne, “Makeup Of A Fool,” a version of which he released with Cris Jacobs and his father Aaron Neville in 2018. Jimmy Cliff’s “Sitting In Limbo” kicked off a set-closing covers section that featured John Hiatt’s “Washable Ink,” Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box” and the Stevie Nicks-penned Fleetwood Mac classic “Landslide.” Ivan would close out the session with Prince’s “I Would Die 4 U.” Watch the entire set below:
