Playing tracks by
Earl King, Kenny Neal, Marva Wright, Bobby Rush, Ted Hefko and The Thousandaires and more.
Mourning another cancellation of JazzFest, this week's Gumbo YaYa features a 13-minute jam by Kenny Neal doing a medley of Jimmy Reed songs. Bobby Rush, Marva Wright and Earl King round out the first 25 minutes. An eclectic varietal of a set follows with a countrified Ted Hefko, Bamboula, Cyril Neville, The Electric Arch and Michael Doucet. Later, you'll Rebirth Brass Band backing up John Fogerty and Jennifer Hudson on Proud Mary, a zydeco set featuring Clifton Chenier, Rosie Ledet and Keith Frank. Other surprises and musical challenge interspersed. This show's not for everyone, just someone special like you.
