November 25 — LAY MY BURDEN DOWN (LIVE), Mavis Staples (2016)

img_1412What can make a live gospel number by Mavis Staples even more alive, more joyous? Perhaps only a full brass New Orleans jazz band. In the new live tribute album “The Musical Mojo of Dr. John,” a parade of Southern musicians — Tab Benoit, Ryan Bingham, Warren Haynes and a dozen more — pay respect to one of the most eccentric artists in a city full of them. The performances crackle with joy, but no one brings the house down like Mavis.
