  • Deep Purple’s new album - Louisiana connection

    Deep Purple’s new album features Louisiana music and musicians.

    “Turning to Crime,” the classic rock band’s first album of nonoriginal songs, includes a remake of Baton Rouge resident Huey “Piano” Smith’s New Orleans classic, “Rocking Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu.” An animated music video for the track, featuring a Smith-like character who discovers a magical piano, has more than 330,000 views on YouTube.

    Deep Purple makes more Louisiana connections on the album with “The Battle of New Orleans.”
    New Orleans accordionist Bruce Daigrepont and Breaux Bridge fiddler Gina Forsyth Cajun-ize the British band’s rendition of Johnny Horton’s No. 1 hit from 1959. New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival producer-director Quint Davis recommended Daigrepont to Deep Purple’s producer, Bob Ezrin. Daigrepont subsequently brought Forsyth, a member of his band, to the project.

    Wow. Deep Purple. Any original members left ?? In thier prime, I would drop everything if they played Fest. An odd fit, though.

        Respectable. Steve Morse can bring it. I'd go see that. Maybe Gina Forsyth on Space Trucking !!
