“The idea of the Haden Triplets at Newport is just about as perfect a fit as there might be that weekend. Between their immediate and extended history and the record they’ve made with Ry, it’s like the place was made for them. The Triplet’s sang with me on Leno once and they sang like angels. It was like stepping back into church. The crowd at Newport is in for a special treat.”

N.Y., and is loved by many people, young and old, who have enjoyed his music.”

“Pokey’s got a St. Louis thing going. His muse is the Mississippi; maybe that’s what makes his songs run so deep and muddy, though it was on the Ohio that I first met him.”
