His resume includes the Neville Brothers, Bonnie Raitt, the Rolling Stones, and Keith Richard’s X-Pensive Winos. The keyboard player, singer, and songwriter grew up as r’n’b royalty playing in the Neville Brothers with his father Aaron and his uncles, Art, Charles, and Cyril.

Topics include a road trip recap, the vaccine, Dylan’s catalogue sale, an early case, a last NYC gig, a long recovery, school days, music training, James Booker, influences, early ’70s soul music, meeting Keith Richards, a Steve Jordan/Sammy Davis Jr. bit, a bottom, hanging with Mick and Steve Bing, a landmark set at Bonnaroo, a record deal, new music, the future, a film score, 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.

TMP182 JAMES "THE HOUND" MARSHALL ON THE LOOSE

The radio personality, bar owner (Circle Bar, Lakeside Lounge NYC), and rock ’n’ roll musicologist moved to the punk rock ground zero of 1977 Lower East Side at age 18, meeting the Cramps, the Ramones, Richard Hell, and Lester Bangs on his very first day in town. His original WFMU radio show (’85-’97) established an outlet for unhinged rockers, blues wailers, greaseball classics, and instrumental madness from his massive collection of 45s and 78s. His new The Hound NYC radio show and Hound Howl podcast carry on that same love of music from the edge. The Hound brings his unvarnished opinions and acerbic wit as he joins the Troubled Men for a stroll through the rubble of memory lane. Topics include a Susan Cowsill Christmas concert, Thanksgiving, a new variant, mob influence, Paterson, N.J., Bud Abbott’s FBI file, life in Florida, Miriam Linna, the Contortions, Lydia Lunch, Robert Quine, Bradley Fields, the Home for Teenage Dirt, record collecting, the Dead Boys, Alex Chilton, Ned Sublette, x-rated parrot training, legal shooting galleries, Burroughs and Ginsberg, the New York Dolls in Florida, punk cross-pollination, the Sex Pistols, a nickname, Dave Clements, Snake & Jake’s Christmas Club Lounge, Peter Holsapple, rare records, giving up, Jim Dickinson, Lou Whitney, Danny Fields, the Beatles “Get Back,” Gene Clark, and much more.
