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.

TMP208 ZACK SMITH CAPTURES THE MOMENT

The award-winning commercial photographer and drummer with acclaimed alt-rock band Rotary Downs shot his first music festival as a teen at the Festivals Acadiens in his hometown of Lafayette, La. His current exhibition, “Exit Stage Right,” at the N.O. Jazz Museum is a collection of stage-side portraits taken everywhere from Bonnaroo to Chaz Fest. His two decades playing with the sublime Rotary Downs is icing on the cake. Zack is used to flying by the seat of his pants in less-than-ideal conditions. That comes in handy as he wings it with the Troubled Men. Topics include the #1 dive bar, a pickup line, the #1 murder rate, the navy base, a Tic Tac obsession, Bastille Day, an all-purpose band, Zachary Richard, a French language renaissance, a vision quest, a bathroom darkroom, trial and error, the zone system, intellectual property rights, a portfolio, meeting bands, assisting Herman Leonard, a visual tradition, disposable images, a heckler, a photo booth, a move to Granada, band dynamics, the writing process, James Marler, Chris Columbo, Jason Rhein, Michael Girardot, a triumphant send-off, C.C. DeVille, Voodoo Fest, the next thing, and much more.
