Well, alright!  After a quick 5 month sojourn into the instrumental arsenal, songwriting archives and editing suite, here’s a new album of original tunes by Maury Smith and the Orchestra Bordenave!  Nine original tunes from 2013, 14 and 15 are accompanied by a song by the late bluesman, Clark Anderson–Blues for Becky Dean.  Listen on line, download, leave me a donation, do whatcha wanna. (Click on the green song titles below  to listen online, then open a new browsing window and come on back to the cafe to read lyrics and such…click here to donate.  Thanks!)

 

Jacoba Epstein played amazing violin and accordion on Waltzing Louisa, June Clouds, Crossed The Line. Ingham County Jail, One More Day and Downhill On The Island.  You do not want to miss her parts…  Al Rose played splendid intuitive deaf monkey flute on Mississippi Moonlight.  Yikes!  Clay Yapp played hot-as-shit harmonica on Clark’s song. Yes!  The Orchestra and I hope you enjoy…
