Later this week, Mr. Michael Paz (who seems to be on a first-name basis with every musician that’s ever come through New Orleans) is hosting Pazfest II, a tribute to Joni Mitchell featuring some of the Big Easy’s finest musicians… and l’il ole moi. Funds raised will help the Ruth Paz Foundation to provide life-changing medical care and support to underprivileged Honduran children and their families.
This show will mark the 10-year anniversary of the original Pazfest in 2000, a glorious event captured for posterity on a two-CD set. How did 10 years go by so quickly? Thanks again to the great Paz for having me.

I’m flying solo this time, but last time I had a heluva band backing me up: Matthew Loiacono and Taylor Price (on loan from Troy Pohl). Here’s a quick clip from the set:
Also, for my money, this was the best performance of the night: Susan Cowsill with Robert Mache performing “Chelsea Morning.” Mercy.
