In keeping with his flagship band’s moniker, Kirk keeps it dirty as he goes tit for tat with the Troubled Men.

Rushmore, the 7th ward, the Andrew Bell Jr. High band, Noel Kendrick, band director Donald Richardson, “Frog” Joseph, Charles Joseph, Jerry Brock, the Olympia Brass Band, woodshedding with Roger Lewis, the brass band tradition, tuba vs. sousaphone, destiny, the Majestic Brass Band, touring Europe, the music biz, childhood influences, jam bands, artistic identity, transcendence, Freeman’s Oh Yeah club, and much more.

TMP134 Craig Klein: New Orleans Nightcrawler

The veteran trombone player discusses the recent New Orleans Nightcrawlers’ Grammy nomination for “Atmosphere,” as well as his years with Bonerama, the Harry Connick Jr. Big Band, and his cameo appearance on “The Simpsons.” His love of traditional jazz led him from hanging out at Preservation Hall as a teen, to co-founding the Storyville Stompers Brass Band, and eventually joining the Pres. Hall band. After 40 years in the music biz and over 150 recording credits, the Grammy nod is a sweet reward. His date with the Troubled Men, slightly less so. Topics include a house concert, Disney World, a tour hack, a Vagiplug followup, D.A. runoff results, pardons, Uncle Jerry, a school band, the Olympia Brass Band, Lucien Barbarin, the Dirty Dozen, Danny Barker, Fairview Baptist Church, the Threadheads, a trombone joke, Frog Joseph, David Silverman, Jason Mingledorff, “Chatter Jazz,” Matt Perrine, Marigny Recording, the Beat Exchange, Mike Napolitano, Scott Billington, awards voting, a nightmare gig, and much more.
