Louisiana’s voice in the Wilderness-Randy Newman

Jim Brown Audio Player
Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Randy Newman is Louisiana’s special troubadour.  He’s funny, clever, sarcastic,  emotional, and generally right on the money.  He’s origionally from New Orleans, and talks about the Bayou State at all his concerts.  He’s written numerous movie musical scores (Seabiscuit, Pleasantville, an The Natural to name a few), and though getting older, aparently has no intention of slowing down. I saw him play last year at Jazzfest in New Orleans. Below are two Newman classics.  “Political Science” is a mirror of the Bush years.  And of course, you always have to include the state’s national anthem, “Louisiana.” Give a listen.
