TMP 127 George Porter In the Groove

The renowned bassist, along with fellow Meters Art Neville, Leo Nocentelli, and Zigaboo Modeliste defined New Orleans funk and R’n’B from the late 1960s on. From the explosion of classics like "Cissy Strut" and "Hey Pocky A-Way" for Allen Toussaint’s label, to session work with Dr. John, LaBelle, Paul McCartney, and Robert Palmer, the Meters are the gold standard. George has gone on to work with a stellar list of artists including David Byrne, Tori Amos, and John Scofield, as well as all-star groups the 7 Walkers, Voice of the Wetlands, and his own Runnin’ Pardners. He survived the 75-76 Rolling Stones. The Troubled Men should be a piece of cake. Topics include early voting, hate stuttering, a birthday speedball, an MRI nightmare, a clean checkup, a new record, early influences, guitar lessons, a new route, Poppi Francis, a frat house training ground, New Orleans music, Meters orthodoxy, touring the US, Route 66, the Ivanhoe, the Nightcap, a record deal, the New Barbarians, a hospital wakeup, a cocaine green light, a French audience, sampling, publishing irregularities, a breakup, production credits, Allen’s passing, a Superdome nightmare, Johnny Vidacovich, shake dancers, the Trio, Eric Traub, live tapes, A Taste of New Orleans, David and Walter Lastie, and much more.
