TMP 120 Johnny Sansone: Speaking In Tongues

As an itinerant bluesman, the singer and harmonica ace sought out giants like James Cotton and Junior Wells to uncover the mysteries of the dark art. The former collegiate swimming star did stints in Colorado, Chicago, and Austin playing with the likes of John Lee Hooker and Ronnie Earl before landing in New Orleans as a seasoned songwriter and bandleader. Johnny has a dozen award-winning solo releases, as well as celebrated collaborations with Anders Osborne and John Fohl, and is a member of the Voice of the Wetlands All-Stars with Tab Benoit, Cyril Neville and Big Chief Monk Boudreaux. He may have dropped the “Jumping Johnny” moniker years ago, but on the Troubled Men Podcast, it’s not about how high you can jump, it’s about how low you can go. Topics include a new high, a deadly storm, Gompers, “Uncut Gems,” a law school brouhaha, a prayer call, an Estes rocket launch, meeting Joe Cabral and Rod Hodges, the Colorado connection, shaving down, a favorite stroke, Mark Spitz, Fort Collins, harmonica science, Howard Levy, elevation, soloists, a Bo Diddley story, a nickname explained, “Poor Man’s Paradise,” the Subdudes, a breakthrough record, Trina Shoemaker, “Homeland,” Luther and Cody Dickinson, playing lefty, a Blaze Foley bio pic, Ethan Hawke, Charlie Sexton, breakups, and much more.
