Show Preview: Wil Blades Trio at The Goodfoot 3/21
This Saturday The Goodfoot is hosting a genre-blending show of the best kind when San Francisco-via-Chicago organist extraordinaire Wil Blades pulls into town with an intriguing trio that includes Tortoise guitarist Jeff Parker and New Orleans drummer Simon Lott. Blades’ mesmerizing playing is something to behold and has seen him share the stage with the likes of John Lee Hooker, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Melvin Sparks, Billy Martin, Stanton Moore, Charlie Hunter and countless others.
Blades’ two cohorts this evening, Parker and Lott, were also the players on his latest record Field Notes (click here to purchase), which was conceived of snippets of the trio performing gigs, sound checks and jams. Lott is a very highly regarded drummer down in the Bayou State and has toured with Charlie Hunter, and as previously stated: Parker is in Tortoise, so to say the evening has potential to be interesting is an understatement.
Tickets are $12 and things kick off around 10, and there figures to be quite a bit of grooving and an eclectic mix of music fans in The Goodfoot Saturday evening.
