It’s time for the hottest Crescent City Soul, from New Orleans greats Dave Bartholomew, Fats Domino, and a host of other favorites, revitalized by pianist Macy Blackman and his hard-driving band the Mighty Fines. They also feature music from their new CD, “Friskin’ the Whiskers.” Originally from Delaware, Macy Blackman made his professional debut at the age of 12 and has played music most of his life, eventually moving to San Francisco. He put together the Mighty Fines in 2003. Relocated from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, Ken “Snakebite” Jacobs became the band’s baritone saxophonist. Nancy Wright sings and plays tenor sax (she’s worked with everyone from Elvin Bishop to B.B. King), alongside drummer Larry Vann (of Ron Thompson’s Resistors, and Elvin Bishop) and bassist Bing Nathan (Lavay Smith, Lost Weekend).
