Mitch Woods to hit the Lytt in about 88 shakes


Sound check on a sunny pm

He also had a very fine cd out “Friends Along The Way” With a fine cast of guests very find of virtual cornucopia including Ruthie Foster Who is previous CDs going to go home parentheses a guy stole my chair reporting live in Lytton Plaza Palo Alto it was a dark and stormy night not Ruthies two previous CDs were produced out by Malcolm Papa Mali Wellborn and Chris take my wife Goldsmith I am here all night try the pizza. No seriously folks I will update this with proper RESPECT. Which reminds me that when Henry butler Charlie Musselwhite Elvin Bishop Rob and Ford Otis Taylor and I played that rotating stage place in Houston they were advertising Aretha the next night this is back in 2003 when we all had more hair and less belly And all got a little more salt and some rest in peace.

Edit to add, post performance post:
Mitch Woods did rock and roll us in Palo Alto inciting our version of dancing in the streets in a set that did have a distinct New Orleans flavor. Although I yelled “Aretha” the spirits conjured weee more like. Fess or Henry Butler. The new cd also somehow conjures John Lee Hooker. I’ve only gotten as far as “CC Rider” which beyond the consistently fine piano also has guitar country style by Taj Mahal and vocals by Taj and unmistaedly Van Morrison. This cd seems destined to Tabasco up someone’s radio show and maybe the movies.
