Tonight – Fairytales: A Celebration of the Life & Music of Willie Murphy

Carol Overland - Legalectric - Sun, 02/17/2019 - 2:39pm

“I want to live in a fairytale…”

I remember a magical and dark eerie moment decades ago, it was at a Blues Fest that Charlie Lawson put together for KFAI.  Willie Murphy was on, at the piano, doing a Louisiana Red number, ash tray on the piano with smoke drifting up, filling the spotlight, and the slow dirge of a left hand minor key, “I have a hard time missing you baby, with my pistol in your mouth… You may be thinking ’bout going north, but your brains are staying south.”  Chills up and down, was it captured live that day?  (it’s on Piano Hits Willie Murphy/Willie Hits Piano)

Dave Ray, Eddie Berger, Prince, and now Willie… we’re at that age… sigh…  It does feel like the end of an era.

Later today:

Sunday, February 17th
