Just anutha regular ol' Thurs night in Spring, takin' a stroll down the Portobello Road and popped into my friend Vince Powers' new joint @subteraniavenue to hear Van da Man + organ wizard Joey Defranscesco and their slammin' boogie & jump jazz band. Just too incredible to hear those kinda kats absolutely killin' it in such an intimate venue! Vince used to have The Mean Fiddler in London back in the day - home away from home for all the great Louisiana and roots touring acts in the 80's/90's. I played there and first met Vince with Buckwheat Zydeco. And in fact, Vince used Doug Kershaw's likeness to adorn the old club's signage, which I found on the way to "the loo" last night. Was also an especially heartfelt night for me, as the music played only a few blocks away from my dear old pal and producer Tarka Cordell's Ladbroke Grove flat. Soul.
