This week, we begin with Etta Britt paying tribute to one of her heroes, Delbert McClinton. We move from there into music from second generation star Murali Coryell, and the playlist is filled with amazing tunes the rest of the way through – including a new release by the legendary Dr. John! The good doctor has just released an album in tribute to the great Louis Armstrong, and the selection featured on this show is a duet with Shemekia Copeland, “Sweet Hunk o Trash,” that Louis Armstrong recorded with Billie Holiday.

The featured selection from inside “Johnny’s Mailbox” is “Play My Song.” The track comes off the new EP, The Back On Track Recording Project, by The Jordan Patterson Band.

Jordan Patterson grew up listening to Blues greats, and was heavily influenced by harmonica players like James Cotton and Paul Butterfield. His debut, Give me A Chance was well received and featured guest appearances by Bobby Rush and Bobby Parker. Jordan Patterson then took several years off to forge a successful career behind the scenes of the music business. He was a tour manager and promoter for huge pop stars and venues.

The fire to perform grew hotter over the years, and Jordan has put together a new band. This EP is a preview of the upcoming full-length album they are preparing for release later this year. Make sure to scroll below this week’s playlist and watch a behind the scenes video with Jordan Patterson discussing these sessions, as well as a music video for “Heartbreaker,” another song off this EP!
