The Last Waltz Ensemble: Holiday Show and CD Release
“Maybe people come back year after year to memorialize The Band’s departed brethren, Rick Danko and Richard Manuel, maybe to remember a young Bob Dylan. Or perhaps to remember Costello, we will have a lot of the same guys on this show that were on Sean’s last show, or a Last Waltz Ensemble moment from the last 6 years. One thing I know is that the material is the glue. It might be the glue that keeps them coming back.”
The Last Waltz Ensemble has just completed another tribute to The Band’s tunes with New Orleans Jokerman, an effort recorded in New Orleans and Atlanta with many of the finest musicians in each city. The LWE took a pull of Dylan and Band tunes and seasoned a fine gumbo with the zest of The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, George Porter Jr, members of The Neville Brothers, The Radiators, Blackberry Smoke and even the great Francine Reed from Lyle Lovett’s Large Band fame.
