    This is a traditional New Orleans song by the great Smoky Johnson that I recorded for Hwy 90. It was one of the first songs we recorded back then.

    "Trashy" was a really fun tune to record. This one featured Grammy winning Cajun accordionist Jo-El Sonnier, Nick Daniels on vocals, J. D. Blair "The Groovemaster" on drums and Paul Chapman on bass. For those of you that listen to my podcast this is where the intro of every Riff Raff comes from!

    The title track to my solo record, this tune featured Jo-El Sonnier on accordion. I wanted to do something true to my South La. heritage, something cajun/zydeco flavored but with gritty guitars and interesting melody. It's basically a twist on a blues progression but the melody is much more adventurous...haha. I doubled the melody with acoustic guitar to make it a bit more present.

    When I was a teenager my cousins and I went out to Bourbon Street for a "night on the town". At about 1 AM in some touristy T shirt shop we I spotted Redd Foxx walking around the store. I went up to him and said that I watched Sanford and Son reruns everyday after school (which was true! haha) My cousin and I asked for his autograph and we asked if he could sign a dollar bill since we didn't have anything else with us. He said "I love money too much I can't sign that". We ended up getting him to sign the back of a gas receipt that my cousin had in his pocket....anyway I've always loved this song "The Street Beater" and actually recorded a version years before I did Hwy 90.

    Punch was a fun tune to record. I remember going over to Art Nevilles house and studio on Valence Street in New Orleans and getting him to put some funky B3 on there. He was using a B3 that he had bought from Santana that for some reason, had confetti inside of it...haha. I recall him being frustrated that no matter how many times he cleaned it there would always be more confetti that would appear!

    Tom Reynolds played piano on this and did this solo in one take. I haven't seen him in years and not sure what he's up to, but what a great player. David Northrup did a great job on drums. I got the idea for this kick drum pattern from Dr. John's song "Qualified".

    This is a song I wrote for my then girlfriend Shiho. It features Kim Stone from the Rippingtons (whom I had met on tour) on bass and J. Scot Wils on sax. At the time I wrote this I was really into Wayne Shorter so some of the chord changes were most likely inspired by him.

    1321 N. Las Palmas was a tune that I had written back when I was attending GIT in the early 90's. I remember sitting in one of the practice rooms in Hollywood and coming up with the intro- (which is tricky to play- at least for me it is!)

    I had recorded an earlier demo version of this tune which almost ended up on a solo record that i was going to do with Mark Varney who had all the guitar hotshots of the day on his label, but I never did go through with it.

    It's a nice melody and fun to play on guitar.

    I got the idea for this title from a Simpsons episode- If I recall correctly Lisa gets a pet elephant and named it "Stampy". I thought the groove of the tune went along with that title!

    The title for this tune came to me one day when I was sitting with my mom in New Orleans in Jackson Square. It was a nice day and we were sitting on one of the park benches right in front of the Cabildo (which used to be the home of government when the Spanish owned New Orleans.) It's now a museum.

    I recall recording the outro guitar solo at guitarist Eric Struthers studio in Nashville where the rest of the tune was recorded. We had my old Fender Twin turned up to 10- painfully loud! and put a blanket on it to get it feedback and sustain. I remember it just shutting off at one point and blowing a fuse!
