Levon Helm will Ramble forever

by Butch Worrell
Nashville, TN

 In memoriam for Levon Helm, I have re posted my original photo gallery from the April 21, 2010 Ryman Auditorium Ramble. I'm sure the Ramble in heaven is in full swing now, the angels are dancing and spinning away while Levon sings and runs the show.

Joan Osborne at City Winery

Images and article by Bill Kelly

Joan Osborne kicked off her Bring It On Home tour with a two night set at New York’s City Winery.  Featuring hand picked vintage blues and soul standards, Osborne has said the she would make this album when she knew “...the time was right and my voice was ready”.  Judging from the Wednesday night show, Osborne’s voice was more than ready; she not only sang classic tunes like Ray Charles’ “I Don’t Need No Doctorand the Slim Harpo’s “Shake Your Hips”,  she owned them, bringing her throaty sensuality to places where the boys could never go.
Backed up by her recording/travelling band featuring Aaron Comess on drums, bassist Richard Harris, Keith Cotton on keys, Andrew Carillo and long-time muscial director Jack Peturzzelli on guitar, Osborne led the band through a set of songs from the new recording, early repertoire hits like St Theresa and a moving cover of Van Morrison’s “Tupulo Honey”.
