Dr. John - "Ske-Dat-De-Dat: The Spirit of Satch," @ 11pm CDT on Deltamusic Handpicked

Tribute albums come and go, but it's a real rarity that can snap a listener to attention like Dr. John's new salute to jazz founding father'Ske-Dat-De-Dat- The Spirit of Satch,' Louis Armstrong.

From the opening notes of "Ske-Dat-De-Dat: The Spirit of Satch,"  it's obvious this is no Big Easy re-creation of the best-known recordings by Armstrong, who in the 1920s almost single-handedly changed the course of popular music with his revolutionary vocal style and trumpet playing.




 "He came to me in this dream and said, 'Do my stuff — your way,'" said the 73-year-old pianist and leading light of New Orleans funk and R&B born Malcolm John "Mac" Rebennack Jr.

Leon Russell - “Life Journey” – on Deltamusic Handpicked Overnight

Legendary American singer and pianist Leon Russell has entertained the world for five decades, getting his start as an in-demand Wrecking Crew session player and playing on hundreds of hit records before he began releasing his own albums in 1967. Leon Russell's latest studio album, titled Life Journey, released on April 1, 2014. This 12-track album features newly-written, original songs and Russell's turns on classics that resonate with the two-time GRAMMY® winner as important to his musical trajectory. The album is produced by Tommy LiPuma and executive produced by Elton John, with whom Russell most recently collaborated for 2010's critically acclaimed album, The Union.


On Life Journey, Russell celebrates the songs of 10 other writers, infusing them with the vibrant bounce and spirit that has long been his signature. Russell opens the album with Robert Johnson's 'Come On In My Kitchen', leading a tour of his majestic musical house that continues with Hoagy Carmichael and Stuart Gorrell's 'Georgia On My Mind', Haven Gillespie and Beasley Smith's 'That Lucky Old Sun', John Davenport and Eddie Cooley's 'Fever', Mike Reid's 'Think Of Me', Duke Ellington and Paul Francis Webster's 'I Got It Bad & That Ain't Good', Herb Magidson and Allie Wrubel's 'The Masquerade Is Over' (featuring a lush orchestral arrangement, a wistful glance back to Russell's own 'This Masquerade'), Paul Anka's 'I Really Miss You', Billy Joel's 'New York State Of Mind', and Johnny Fuller, Robert L. Geddins, and David Rosenbaum's 'Fool's Paradise'. With Life Journey, Leon Russell reminisces with some of the musical touchstones that have inspired him, while bringing forth new songs of his own, for an album that looks back with the love, loss, joy, and peace that's collected during a life well lived. How fortunate the world is for Leon Russell to share his life and time with us in song, all these years.

The Breeze: An Appreciation of JJ Cale – Deltamusic Overnight @ 11pm CDT

The Breeze: An Appreciation of JJ Cale is an album by Eric Clapton & Friends and it is dedicated to his former collaborator JJ Cale. It was named after his 1972 single "Call Me the Breeze". It was produced by Clapton and Simon Climie.

Catch the entire CD on Deltamusic Handpicked @ 11:00PM CDT


In the early Seventies, after the implosions of Cream and Blind Faith, Eric Clapton found profound influence in the California grooves of reclusive songwriter JJ Cale – who supplied Clapton with two of his biggest solo hits ("After Midnight" and "Cocaine"). Clapton repaid his debt to Cale once with their 2006 collaboration, The Road to Escondido, and he takes that idea a step further with this tribute album, conceived at Cale's funeral last year. Clapton's renditions can be a little too faithful: He nails Cale's throaty growl on "Cajun Moon," but the track fades out just as it might have opened up into a Dead-style jam; "Lies," sung with John Mayer, could have benefited from the charismatic delivery of a vet like Dr. John or Leon Russell. The best moments break free from the restraints of Cale's writing. Tom Petty delivers "Rock and Roll Records" with wry swagger, and Mark Knopfler puts his stamp on "Train to Nowhere" with gloomy Strat acrobatics. And just like one of Clapton's Crossroads fests, The Breeze heats up toward the end. Willie Nelson adds a spiritual intensity to "Starbound" – and, best of all, Don White, from Cale's native Tulsa, Oklahoma, howls the Burrito Brothers-style stomper "I'll Be There," grooving like a high-noon drive through the Baja desert.
