I don’t know whether you noticed, but in the list of 2009 Grammy nominations for the Bluegrass Album of the Year award is an obscure CD featuring the Del McCoury Band live.
The 18 track album Live At The 2008 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival consists of material recorded and produced by MunckMix using high quality digital multi-track equipment. The album is available as a CD and as downloads at JazzFestLive.com.
Performed during the Del McCoury Band set at this past year’s festival, staged at the end of April and early May (April 25-27 & May 1-4, 2008), are such favorites as Loneliness & Desperation, Nashville Cats, Rocky Road Blues, 1952 Vincent Black Lightning, Queen Anne’s Lace, Get Down On Your Knees And Pray and Gone But Not Forgotten.
However the highlight of the set could be an improvised version of My Love Will Not Change that lasts over 10 minutes.
