seven things to do in seven days

Robert Randolph and the Family Band | Robert Randolph learned to play pedal steel guitar, or sacred steel, in church and he was discovered by wider audiences, particularly jamband fans, after performing at a sacred steel convention. In July, Randolph and the Family Band release Lickety Split, which features a guest appearance by Trombone Shorty. The Slide Brothers open at House of Blues. PAGE 80.

Tribute to Bobby Charles Tue. April 30 | The Ponderosa Stomp organized this tribute to Bobby Charles, the Louisiana rock ’n’ roll legend behind songs like “See You Later, Alligator” and “Walking to New Orleans.” Lil’ Band O’ Gold and Shannon McNally and others perform. McNally also releases Small Town Talk. At Rock ’N’ Bowl. PAGE 80. Chaz Festival Wed. May 1 | The annual neighborhood music festival is like an extra day of Jazz Fest — in Bywater, with hard liquor. The lineup includes Dave Pirner, Scully & Rough 7, Lonesome Leash, Los Po-Boy-Citos, Truth Universal, TBC Brass Band and others. At 3020 St. Claude Ave. PAGE 80 AND 95. Yo La Tengo Wed. May 1 | For Fade (Matador) — Yo La Tengo’s 13th studio LP — the Hoboken, N.J., stalwarts abruptly switched producers, hiring John McEntire (Tortoise) to helm the boards after 20 years with Roger Moutenot. The result isn’t so much a return to Painful/Electr-O-Pura heydays as a

preemptive reunion: You can hear the band beating as one. At Tipitina’s. PAGE 79 AND 80. The Black Angels Wed. May 1 | The Austin, Texas-based Black Angels’ tastes for psychedelia seem slightly more visual than musical. Songs like “Don’t Play With Guns” off recent release Indigo Meadow are less trippy and sound more like harderedged, garage-rocking Velvet Underground songs (the source of their name) with fuzzier guitars. Hot 8 Brass Band opens at Republic. PAGE 80.

The Adventures of Buttboy and Tigger Fri.-Sat. May 3-June 8 | In Steven Dawson’s drama, two men chat online and enjoy exchanging ever more vivid and outrageous sexual fantasies. They’ve never shared their real names, but is there any reason not to meet in person? At The Elm Theatre. PAGE 91. Michael Ray and the Cosmic Krewe Fri. May 3 | Trumpeter Michael Ray was a longtime member of the Sun Ra Arkestra and former member of Kool and the Gang. He reunites with his New Orleans jazz-funk outfit Cosmic Krewe. At Cafe Istanbul.

AFAYETTE — A demitasse of espresso beside him, Zachary Richard stares wistfully from his front porch into the rows of live oaks he planted 30 years ago when he built his Acadian-style house on a few acres north of Scott, La. The trees, like the singer-songwriter who planted them, have matured into elegant expressions of south Louisiana. “What I do as a French songwriter is what I do as an English songwriter, and that is to express the emotions that inspired the song with as much elegance and simplicity and power as I can,” he says. Those emotions run deep on Le Fou, his 20th album and arguably his best. Searingly understated, personal yet universal and graced with impeccable musicians including locals Sonny Landreth and Roddie Romero, Le Fou traverses an emotional landscape pitted with environmental peril, love and longing and questions of identity. There’s hardly a song on Le Fou you can call straight-up, traditional Cajun or zydeco — much of the record is, simply and beautifully, acoustic folk/pop — save for his cover of the traditional zydeco number “Bee de la Manche,”

the only tune on the record Richard didn’t write himself or with collaborators. But the indigenous rhythms, instruments and melodies of Acadiana imbue the music with a sense of place. It’s almost as if, with each passing record, Richard is reinterpreting his native south Louisiana, and but for one stanza in one song, the album is also entirely en francais. “The songs write themselves — I don’t choose the lan-

Le Fou almost didn’t happen. Following the oil disaster, as Richard was writing songs for the record, he spearheaded a series of concerts in Canada over the summer and into the fall of 2010 to raise money for victims in Louisiana, pushing his physical and emotional limits. While home in Scott in October and with the compositions just about complete, he suffered a stroke that put him in the hospital for five days and in physical therapy for months. He still has some residual numbness on his left side, although the stroke never impaired his singing or ability to play music. “I think the most significant ... aspect of that experience was realizing that one day I’m going to die,” he says. He was 60 at the time and in vigorous health. He isn’t joking when he says the stress of organizing the benefit concerts played a role in the stroke. “I’m a musician, not a politician, and I didn’t have any talent for controlling the stress of all of that,” he says, adding in jest, “I think I got a stroke because of the oil spill. Maybe I should be suing BP.” He’s not suing BP, Le Fou was released, and the 13-track record is a gift. From the fierce opening track “Laisse Le Vent Souffler” (“Let the Storm Wind Blow”) through the bluesy “Crevasse Crevasse” (Richard blows a mean little harp on this one) to the majestic finality of “Les Ailes des Hirondelles” (“The Wings of the Swallow”), Le Fou is Zachary Richard at his best. The songs shift from plaintive and pleading to bouncing, playful

guage,” he explains. “Once the language declares itself, then I have to obey the declaration; I don’t really have a premonition or a method or an idea what language the song is going to want to be written in.” But geography, he adds, has a lot to do with the language in which he composes. “I think it has a lot to do with where I am in life physically,” he says. “If I hear a lot of English it means that mostly English will come out. A lot of those songs were written while I was touring in Quebec after the (BP) oil spill that summer. I was in this context that was deeply Francophone, so I’m not surprised that it happened mostly in French.” The record is being released in the U.S. this month, although it’s been on iTunes and out in Canada for a while. The decision to debut the record in Canada was an obvious one — that’s where Richard butters his bread. He’s a multi-platinum artist north of the border, more likely to be asked for an autograph in a Montreal cafe than at Early’s Food Store in his hometown. (The City-Parish Council voted in late March to request that the state Department of Transportation rename that stretch of Highway 93, notably home to The Best Stop Supermarket, “Zachary Richard Highway.” Richard also was honored recently as the most recent James William Rivers Prize winner by the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s Center for Louisiana Studies, joining such past recipients as Ernest Gaines, A. Hays Town and James Lee Burke.) Translated, the album’s title means “the crazy,” and its cover bears a photograph of Richard, barefoot in a suit, standing on a beach with one leg and his arms raised like a teenaged Ralph Macchio. But it’s not an autobiographical presentation. “Le Fou, you would think that it’s about me being ‘the crazy,’ but there was actually some thought given to it,” he says. “The posture that I’m holding, it’s not like the Karate Kid. Actually, it’s the crane [a tai chi position].” This is where it gets a little nuanced, which is typical of Richard: The album’s title comes from “fou de Bassan,” the French name for the northern gannet, a seabird that, like the songwriter, splits its time between Canada and Louisiana. Richard says an oil-covered northern gannet was the first bird to be pulled from the polluted Gulf of Mexico and cleaned following the BP oil disaster in the spring of 2010 — an event that deeply affected a songwriter long known for his support of environmental causes. “It’s all about the oil spill,” he says. “The concept was, OK, you buy the record and think, ‘This guy thinks he’s crazy.’ But you listen to the song and you realize, ‘Wait a minute, it’s not about this guy — it’s about a bird that was in the oil spill in 2010.’”

and uplifting, peeling away the layers of Richard’s influences and reconstituting them into something familiar yet new. The musicianship on the record is top-notch and understated, performed by players whose confidence trumps showmanship. That he plays with some of the finest musicians in the world isn’t lost on the songwriter either. “Getting two or three or four — in this case it was four musicians — even though they’re some of the most talented and proficient players on the planet, getting that to gel is hard; you don’t just turn it on. You have to wait,” he says of the recording process. “There’s still this element of mystery and magic that is so cool.” And the record is full of sonic surprises in which Richard’s sense of orchestration and ornamentation — Landreth playing a resonator guitar on the so-fine “Clif’s Zydeco” — lights up and sparkles. Le Fou is referential and reverential but never self-conscious. But many of these songs are exquisitely self-aware, written by a man who is acutely conscious of straddling multiple dimensions. “The [song] that is the most significant is the one that’s called ‘Orignal ou Caribou,’ which in English is ‘Moose or Caribou,’” Richard explains. “And there’s this lovely line, ‘I don’t know if I’m from the north or the south or from the evening or the morning.’ That is a real symbol for me — not knowing whether I’m from Quebec or South Louisiana, whether I speak English or French.” But he also rues the French language’s ever-tenuous toehold in his native south Louisiana: “I tell myself, the richness of my life is being able to do everything at once, but sometimes it’s maybe frustrating not to be understood in my own neighborhood, in the language which I consider to be the maternal language of the neighborhood. But I don’t hold that against anybody.” — Walter Pierce is managing editor of The Ind in Lafayette, where this story originally appeared.

Last week was the third delay of the hearing since the beginning of April. According to a report in The Times-Picayune, the move to push back the debate followed a private, late-night meeting between city officials and representatives of police officers’ associations, which have opposed the proposal. — CHARLES MALDONADO

Gusman: city funding is the problem SHERIFF OPPOSES OPP TAKEOVER Orleans Parish Sheriff Marlin Gusman last week formally opposed New Orleans city government’s motion — filed this month — to appoint a federal receiver to take over the operations of Orleans Parish Prison (OPP), arguing it is not inadequate management but decades of inadequate city funding that led to the jail’s current state. “On Sunday, April 7 The TimesPicayune ran a front-page story asking the rhetorical question, ‘Sheriff Marlin Gusman — worst jailer? Or — is he just burdened with the worst jail?’ As will be clearly proven below, the answer to that question is that he is burdened with the worst jail,” reads the opening paragraph

of Gusman’s motion in opposition to the city’s request. The city pays the sheriff’s office $22.39 per inmate per day to fund operations of the jail. According to Gusman’s filing, that is 15 cents less than the $22.54 a city-commissioned expert report recommended in 1990. “The city cannot continue to balance its budget on the back of the Sheriff and the United States Constitution,” the filing says. “Today, OPP faces the inevitable result of more than thirty years’ neglect by the city of the city’s correctional operations and facilities and its obligation to that system.” Mayor Mitch Landrieu believes the tens of millions of dollars in potential yearly expenses associated with the proposed consent decree would force the city to layoff or furlough hundreds of essential employees. The city believes the decree is overly broad but that Gusman is unfit to run the jail. Gusman, meanwhile, is in favor of the consent decree. But he does not concede that conditions are unconstitutional — the U.S. Department of Justice’s rationale for attempting to impose the consent agreement. U.S. District Court Judge Lance Africk is weighing whether to accept the consent decree, following a weeklong fairness hearing early this month. Two more hearings on the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office’s budget and funding for the consent decree have been set for May 28 and July 1. — CHARLES MALDONADO

HOUSE BILL DROPS PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL REQUIREMENT A newly amended state House bill, advanced by the House Natural Resources Committee last week, would allow Children’s Hospital to purchase the shuttered New Orleans Adolescent Hospital (NOAH) for $29 million. Children’s agreed to lease the property in January but balked at the terms of the agreement, which required that it reopen NOAH as a child and adolescent psychiatric hospital. The amendment strips that requirement for the sale but requires that Children’s expand mental health services on its main campus. The bill puts an end to a dispute between Children’s — which has been trying to buy the property for a number of years — and state Rep. Neil Abramson, D-New Orleans. Abramson, who represents the district that includes NOAH. He wanted the property reopened as a children’s and adolescents’ psychiatric hospital, but Children’s wanted to use the site for additional ambulatory outpatient clinics, a surgical center and new radiology and lab facilities, Children’s marketing vice president Brian Landry said, adding, “We’re very pleased with the bill.” Landry said the sale price for NOAH will be $29 million. The new bill also provides for $10 million to $20 million in state capital outlay funding, which likely will help pay for the mental health expansion: “Children’s plans to put $50 million to $60 million into the NOAH campus just in the next several years,” he said. Children’s Hospital met with Abramson and reached a compromise requiring it to provide expanded mental health treatment, likely on its main campus adjacent to NOAH, Landry said. Under the newly amended bill, Children’s would not be required to reopen NOAH for children’s and adolescents’ mental health services, but it would require that Children’s expand mental health services, opening 16 new beds for children and adolescents. “It is important to the entire community that these services be provided locally, and that Children’s will now have the resources to add desperately needed care,” Abramson said in a prepared statement. — CHARLES MALDONADO

pulled a bill April 22 that would have bumped the per-pack tax from 36 cents to $1.41. One day later, the House Ways & Means Committee snuffed out a plan by Rep. Katrina Jackson, DMonroe, to raise it to 68 cents per pack, which seems to end the Legislature’s annual discussion of whether to raise taxes on cigarettes. Louisiana has the third-lowest cigarette sales tax in the country, according to figures compiled by the American Lung Association and the Tax Foundation. Only Virginia at 30 cents, and Missouri at 17 cents, are lower. The highest is New York, which adds $4.35 to each pack sold in the state. Other states also are looking to hike their cigarette taxes, including Massachusetts, where Gov. Deval Patrick, a Democrat, is proposing a $1-per-pack tax (bringing it to $3.51). Gov. Bobby Jindal wanted a similar hike ($1.05 per pack) as part of his own state income tax overhaul, but he dropped the notion when his tax plan was rejected. Jindal now says he will veto any new tax on cigarettes that does not come with lowering of other taxes, which is consistent with a previously held position. In 2011, the legislature agreed to renew a 4-cent per pack tax, which Jindal promptly vetoed, calling it a tax increase. — KEVIN ALLMAN

Beautiful, lighweight baby slings!

wo years ago, the League of Women Voters of New Orleans conducted an extensive study of the city’s municipal and parochial election dates and their impact on voter turnout. Since 1982, New Orleans has held its citywide elections in February and March — right in the middle of Carnival season. The run-up to Election Day forces candidates to compete for voters’ attention with our city’s chock-full social and religious holiday schedule as well as the New Orleans Saints and Pelicans’ seasons. The study — titled “Celebrate or Vote … Does the calendar affect voting in Orleans Parish?” — concluded that “the current election cycle causes unnecessary obstacles and inconvenience in staging elections.” That’s an understatement. The distractions posed by Carnival, college and professional sporting events and the holidays are not just a problem on Election Day itself. Voter registration drives have to conclude 30 days before each election, which puts an added strain on such efforts during the holiday season. Everywhere else in Louisiana — indeed, pretty much everywhere else in America — major elections are held in the fall. It used to be that way in New Orleans, too. The state law governing local election dates was changed after the 1977 mayoral race at the behest of then-Mayor Dutch Morial, who complained of the long (sixmonth) transition period. The late mayor had a legitimate gripe about his lengthy transition period, but the answer should have been moving the mayor and the City Council’s inauguration dates forward, not pushing back the election date. State lawmakers now have an opportunity to correct that mistake once and for all. Senate Bill 191 by state Sen. J.P. Morrell, D-New Orleans, would put New Orleans’ municipal and parochial elections back on the “fall schedule” — in October and November — starting in 2015. The change would align our elections with the state’s election calendar, restore some sanity to the local electoral process

and save the city money. (When local elections are held on state-sponsored election dates, the state picks up more than half the tab.) The change proposed by Morrell’s bill would not affect the upcoming citywide elections, which are only nine months away. Qualifying for municipal and parochial offices in New Orleans is less than eight months away. Nor would Morrell’s bill affect the next inauguration date for the current mayor and City Council, if any of

SB 191 would restore some sanity to the local electoral process and save the city money. them are re-elected next year, or for their immediate successors in 2018. Instead, the bill would move up the inauguration date to the third Monday in January starting in the year 2022. That would put every mayor and council member into office just before the earliest possible date for Mardi Gras, starting in 2022. More important, it would remove a potential abuse that has been the scourge of all incoming mayors in recent times: the temptation for an outgoing administration to overspend in the first four months of its last budget year, leaving the new mayor and council drastically short of cash as they take office. SB 191 won unanimous approval in the Senate and Governmental Affairs Committee last week, but that’s just the first step in a long process. The League of Women Voters has vetted this issue thoroughly and deserves credit for pushing it this far. We hope local lawmakers see this needed reform through to the end.

Jefferson millage renewals

Natural Products for your Sweet Baby 2122 MAGAZINE ST. (IN THE GREEN LIGHT DISTRICT)

This Saturday, Jefferson Parish voters will decide whether to renew existing property tax millages for fire protection, sewerage services and water works. These millages apply to particular areas only and are not parishwide. Because these millages support vital parish services and are limited in scope, we recommend voting for their renewal. Fire Protection District No. 5 includes Terrytown, unincorporated Gretna, and the Timberlane subdivision. Renewal of the 20-mill tax for 10 years would continue to provide fire protection for the district, which maintains a Class 2 fire insurance rating. For a home valued at $100,000, the tax bill is $50 a year.

Consolidated Sewerage District No. 1 includes unincorporated Jefferson Parish and the Town of Jean Lafitte. Renewal of the 5-mill tax would generate an estimated $12.3 million for sewerage works and facilities for the district. A home valued at $100,000 would be taxed $12.50 a year to help the district continue to meet local, state and federal standards. Consolidated Waterworks District 1 includes unincorporated Jefferson Parish and the incorporated areas of Harahan, Kenner, Jean Lafitte and Grand Isle. Renewal of the 5-mill tax for 10 years would extend the sole source of revenue for capital improvements in the district.

jeremy ALFORD report from red stick

Another budget stalemate? the budget out of the Appropriations Committee, it will be due to a crafty amendment expected to be introduced Monday to back out the one-time money from the budget during committee debate to temporarily remove objections from lawmakers. Geymann says the administration probably will put the money back into the budget somewhere along the process to keep it in balance. “No one wants a bogus amendment just to move the budget forward,” he said. “That’s ridiculous.” One senator, upon hearing the news, says it’s an easy fix once and if the bill makes it to the opposite chamber. The amendment is needed to avoid triggering the Geymann Rule, named for its author, on the House floor. It requires a two-thirds vote from the Lower Chamber just to debate a budget if it surpasses the allowable limit of one-time money under the rule, which Jindal’s budget does. “We’re in real jeopardy of being at a stalemate,” Geymann says — that is, unless the planned amendment does the trick. Allowing for political miracles and acknowleging the sheer power ingrained in the office of governor, if the budget does hobble over to the Senate, Morrell predicts it will arrive during the session’s final days. Moreover, if it goes all the way and Jindal vetoes the compromises reached by the Legislature, he says the political will is strong enough to hold an override session. “I could see that coming into play,” says Morrell, a member of the Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Committee. At the end of the second week of the regular session, Geymann and Morrell were among the panelists invited to speak at the annual conference of the Public Affairs Research Council (PAR). They laid out the possible scenarios with grim faces, explaining how Jindal’s tax-swap plan, which he pulled from consideration on the first day of session, shrouded the budget. On the surface, many lawmakers seem OK with Jindal’s use of one-time money and contingencies. If the state faces fiscal exigencies, using such temporary or “bridge” funding can be acceptable — depending on the circumstances — even for some conservatives. The problem is that reliance on one-time funds and contingencies, along with midyear budget cuts rendered after lawmakers go home, have become staples of Jindal’s budget process, dating back to his first days in office. If it’s ever going to end, this could be the year it comes to a head. “I think we’re on the verge of history here,” Geymann says. — Jeremy Alford is a freelance journalist in Baton Rouge.

ver the past several weeks, conservative lawmakers on the House Appropriations Committee have questioned if, not when, the budget will be passed during the ongoing session that adjourns June 6. That means, not long after Gov. Bobby Jindal has “parked” his controversial tax swap plan, his budget could be stalling. A few have even looked farther down the road in case there’s a head-on collision. “There’s more talk in the hallways about coming back for a special session on the budget than anything else,” says Rep. Brett Geymann, R-Lake Charles, chairman of the Budget Reform Coalition and a founding “fiscal hawk.” It wouldn’t be unprecedented. In 2000, as former Gov. Mike Foster was entering his second term, the budget bill stalled in conference committee, where key House and Senate members are supposed to hammer out differences. A special session ensued. At the time, Jindal had just been pulled back into state government by Foster as the youngest-ever president of the University of Louisiana System. He turned 29 just three days after the Legislature adjourned without a budget. Now 41 and approaching the midpoint of his own second term, Jindal’s use of nearly $500 million in one-time money to underwrite higher education has both Democrats and Republicans uneasy. That most of the nonrecurring money is linked to contingencies such as legal settlements, fund transfers, land sales and privatization contracts — none of them guaranteed to come through — only makes matters worse. “It has reached a different level,” says House Democratic Caucus Chairman John Bel Edwards of Amite. “There are scores of members here who are Republicans and Democrats who are concerned about the same things, perhaps for slightly different reasons, but there is a broad area of agreement.” The numbers on the House Appropriations Committee appear stacked against Jindal, more so than ever before. But that may have less to do with money for the operating budget than with the lack of funding available in the capital outlay program, which the administration can use to place construction projects in lawmakers’ districts. The borrowing cap is $500 million away from being breached, which isn’t much, says Sen. J.P. Morrell, D-New Orleans. That means arm-twisting will prove difficult for Jindal, who is suffering from sagging poll numbers and poor showings on the national presidential circuit. “It has taken away Jindal’s sway,” Morrell says. If the administration manages to move

Hey Blake,

Hey Blake,

What was the name of the movie theater on the corner of Tulane Avenue and South Pierce Street? How the West Was Won was the first movie there. I think the theater opened in the early 1970s or late ’60s.

On the corner of Jackson Avenue and Chippewa Street is a building about three stories high, and hanging on the side is a gargoyle holding up a decapitated head. Can you tell me how long the gargoyle has been there and why it was put there?

Dear Wayne, On Jan. 18, 1963, we all trekked down to Martin Cinerama at 3615 Tulane Ave. to see the latest in moviemaking marvels. The theater opened at 8:15 p.m. the night before with a gala mid-South premiere of The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm. The opening was presented as a benefit for the Variety Club’s Heart Fund, and movie producer George Pal attended. A red carpet and lights heralded the opening of the factand-fantasy film that starred Laurence Harvey and Claire Bloom. Going to the Cinerama was something new for New Orleanians. The theater had reserved seats and offered an entirely new viewing experience; it used a widescreen process that worked by simultaneously projecting images from three synchronized 35-millimeter projectors onto a huge, deeply curved screen. How the West Was Won came to the theater in March 1963. The theater showcased other first-run movies of the day, such as It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1964), Mary Poppins (1964), The Hallelujah Trail (1965) and 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). The theater eventually started showing regular films, and in the late 1960s its name was changed to The Trans-Lux Cinerama. But popularity waned and audiences dwindled. The movie house got another new name, Sinerama, and began to show adult movies. The name later changed to the Pussycat Theater. In 1985, the building became the Metroplex, a meeting and concert hall that closed almost as soon as it opened. In 1987, it became the Riverboat Hallelujah, a multipurpose entertainment center and bingo hall. It was demolished in 2001 and is now the site of The Terraces, a large apartment complex.

Archie Keyser Dear Archie, The building in question was a synagogue built in 1867 for the congregation Sha’arai Tefillah, which translates to Gates of Prayer.

The owners of a former synagogue put a frightful gargoyle holding a severed head on the side of the building to deter vandals. PHOTO BY KANDACE POWER GRAVES

In 2004, the synagogue was sold and the new owners spent a lot of money on new glass windows. Fearing the windows would be targets for vandals, the owners came up with a clever plan. Some people believe that gargoyles have the power to frighten away evil or harmful spirits, so the owners decided to put one on their building in hopes it would keep vandals at bay. In a shop on Magazine Street, the men found just the thing they wanted: a fiberglass gargoyle. They wanted to put it in front of the building, but restrictions by a preservationist group barred that. Instead, the gargoyle was attached to the side of the building. Its presence seems to have done the trick.

‘Deliberative’ secrets The two bills are House Bill 19 by Rep. Jerome “Dee” Richard, I-Thibodaux (coauthored by Sen. Rick Gallot, D-Ruston), and Senate Bill 95 by Sen. Robert Adley, R-Benton. Richard’s bill will be heard Tuesday, April 30, in the House and Governmental Affairs Committee. “The goal is to get rid of that ‘deliberative process’ provision,” Richard says. “I remember their testimony in 2009, when they said it was only going to be for the governor’s office. That’s not the case now. It’s used throughout the executive branch. You name it, they use ‘deliberative process’ to hide it. That’s not transparency. That’s shielding things from the public, and it’s how we got into some of the problems we have now.”

Bobby Jindal is widely known as the least transparent governor in America. Adley long ago predicted the 2009 bill would take Louisiana “from sunshine to moonshine.” He was correct. Media organizations should support both bills — the Louisiana Press Association (LPA), the Louisiana Association of Broadcasters and others. LPA president Norris Babin, who publishes the St. Bernard Voice and the Plaquemines Gazette, understands the issue well. “LPA feels that the deliberative process has morphed into something other than what we thought it would be when it was presented in 2009,” Babin says. “It’s being used more broadly than promised. We were told it would make more records public. In actuality, it has taken more things off the public records table — and we would like to see something done about that.” If you care about making government more open and responsive, take the time to contact your state reps and senators. Tell them you’re paying attention to the issue of public records. Tell them you’ll remember how they vote on this issue next time you vote. And remember that it was Bobby Jindal who got us into this mess.

our years ago, Gov. Bobby Jindal hoodwinked lawmakers, the public and most of the Louisiana Press Association into supporting legislation that he uses to keep virtually all his administration’s records from public view. He also uses his enormous power to prevent that law from being overturned or narrowed. The 2009 law, which Jindal cynically proclaimed a “transparency bill,” is a prime example of the old wisdom that the devil is in the details. It contains an Orwellian provision that allows anything deemed part of the governor’s “deliberative process” to remain secret. Under the law, Team Jindal gets to “deem” as liberally as it pleases. Turns out Jindal loves to keep lots of things secret, particularly details about himself and his policies. Since 2009, the Jindal Administration, including departments that are not even part of “the governor’s office,” have hidden behind the “deliberative process” scrim every time someone files a bothersome public records request. It’s why Jindal is widely known as the least transparent governor in America. More important, it makes it next to impossible for an average citizen, or even a news organization, to pry public information out of Louisiana’s executive branch. Now that the feds are investigating the Jindal administration for possible criminal violations relating to the hiring of a Maryland contractor, CNSI, to process the state’s Medicaid claims, it’s becoming clear why Bobby Jindal likes to keep things secret. Former state Health and Hospitals Secretary Bruce Greenstein, who previously worked for CNSI, pushed through changes to the bid solicitation that helped his former employer win the state contract. Surprised? Don’t be. Details about those changes, how they came about, and when, are precisely the kind of things that Team Jindal typically deems “part of the governor’s deliberative process.” Lucky for us, that dodge doesn’t cut it with the feds. They have subpoenas. The rest of us, sadly, have to rely on Louisiana’s public records laws, which, thanks to Jindal, have been eviscerated. That could change. State lawmakers are considering at least two bills to remove the “deliberative process” loophole. You can bet the governor will once again pull out all the stops to kill both measures — but there’s hope this year. Because Jindal is now even less popular in Louisiana than President Barack Obama, perhaps lawmakers will muster the courage to correct the grave error they committed in 2009.

don’t know much about Sweden, to be honest with you,” Anders Osborne says. “I left when I was 16.” Seated at his kitchen table, Osborne uses a pencil to sketch a map of his native Scandinavia before tracing the origins of the wanderlust that led him to New Orleans 30 years ago. Bright sunshine streams through the kitchen’s stained-glass windows, which Osborne installed while repairing his home from damages after Hurricane Katrina. Originally built as horse stables for the Allard plantation (which became New Orleans City Park), Osborne’s home features the original oyster-shell driveway as well as a thriving rosemary bush at his front gate. He offers clippings from the rosemary to take home for germination. Osborne just woke up and is dressed in black fleece slippers, board shorts and a T-shirt. He’s still adjusting from a recent trip to San Rafael, Calif., where he performed a week’s worth of gigs at Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads. To perform with Lesh and other musical guests, including frequent collaborator Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi All-Stars, Black Crowes), Osborne had to learn nearly 50 Grateful Dead songs. “Yes and no,” he says when asked if he’s a Deadhead. “I’d never been familiar with their catalogue until the last year. I lived for a brief stint in California in 1986 and had this old Cadillac I’d drive around and used to play ‘Touch of Grey’ — which was their little bit more of a commercial attempt to reach people like me. I’d listen to that and Peter Gabriel’s So and (Bob Dylan’s 1975 album) Blood on the Tracks.” He credits local guitarist Billy Iuso with his recent exploration of the Dead, and says he finds the jam band’s song’s to be special. “They’re all really special,” he says of the songs he learned, retrieving a dog-eared stack of white papers.

“Like ‘Dire Wolf,’” Osborne says, pulling out a sheet of music from a stack of Dead songs he learned. It’s covered in black Sharpie notations. “It has so many chords, and they never stop changing. (The Grateful Dead) have this folk tradition and they follow an extended melody. So it’s not just learning the 1-4-5 chord progression. In New Orleans, most of the music is 1-2-5, or 1-6-2-5. Most of my songs are pretty basic, too.” Over coffee, Osborne shares often-personal revelations into a musical journey that’s long been embraced by a loyal local audience but in recent years has blossomed into new sounds, bigger stages and larger audiences. Osborne goes from sold-out, two-night stands at Tipitina’s to prime placement on festival lineups, which often draw the fanbase the Dead first spawned decades ago. It’s a scene that suddenly adores Osborne. The musician is known for incendiary improvisational jams including one last spring at Republic, in which he melted a cover of Jimi Hendrix’s instrumental “Third Stone from the Sun,” along with fellow guitarists Dickinson and Warren Haynes (Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule) and Billy Iuso, to the point of full-tilt frenzy that’s now the stuff of local hippie lore. Osborne’s rise came after a tortuous bout with addiction, and he was guided by the light of intense introspection along the way. He has been drug-free since 2009, and in the last three years has released three albums (American Patchwork, Black Eye Galaxy, Three Free Amigos), which are among his finest works, and attained the type of popularity that gives the husband and father no days off for the next two months. “In 2009, I made a conscious shift,” he says. “I had trusted my talents a little bit too much and hadn’t done enough of the hard work. I started to see things in a new light — basically,

that you can’t go running around crazy or you won’t last. These days, there’s nobody backstage. All private. Just the band. And before the show, we’re praying.” Osborne’s path to substance abuse began at age 13, when he started experimenting with alcohol, hashish and amphetamines. “I was covering up all the emotions that I was supposed to learn and grow into,” he recalls. Years later in New Orleans, he developed a fondness for cooking cocaine as well as heroin. “I went through different waves; sometimes I’d go for uppers, sometimes I’d go for downers,” he says. “But the thing that got me every time was alcohol. I used to think I could be cool with it. “All the terrible stories that come with addiction, I have them. Blacking out, waking up not knowing where my guitar is and I’ve been running around with no pants on for two days.” Leaving his last stint in rehab (Osborne first attempted sobriety in 1999) he was diagnosed as bipolar and found balance with the help of medication. The bipolar diagnosis “explained a lot,” he says, remembering it as a time of extreme anxiety. “I couldn’t sleep at all. I’d work like crazy, paint like crazy, doing like two or three paintings a day. Manic stuff.” Osborne emerged from rehab sporting a wildly bushy beard and greying hair past his shoulders. “I think it’s a very spiritual thing to let everything grow,” he says. “My wife complained about it, but it was just that I had to let something grow. My hair, my beard — it was like my protective shield.” Osborne rechanneled his considerable energy into creating louder, heavier music, largely leaving behind the New Orleans-style R&B that marked many of his years, especially in his long-running trio with saxophonist Tim Green and sousaphonist Kirk Joseph, whom he counts among his closest friends. “A lot of that stuff sounded like what it was — a white boy backed by a couple of black guys,” he says.

“It was missing the Bob Dylan link, the Joni Mitchell link, the Black Sabbath link. I had to get back to who I was originally. Getting all R&B sweet and cute — that’s not how I started out. “Something just clicked and it suddenly felt natural to just play the f—k out of my guitar,” he says. “I felt like I had rediscovered my childhood, like I was 13, 14 years old.” Osborne also has written country hits for the likes of Tim McGraw and toured the world in a band featuring Big Chief Monk Boudreaux. Such shifts in style parallel his notions of how the passage of time and space flow in his adopted hometown of New Orleans. “The thing about New Orleans, I always claim — having kids born here, friends that moved here, friends that are fourth-, fifth-generation Louisiana — is that the city is the combination of all these people,” he says. “The tourists arriving on Sunday afternoon are New Orleans as much as the old generation. That’s the point where understanding New Orleans clicked for me. It’s not something I have to reach for or touch. I am this city. I am becoming it, making it, shaping it. You have to constantly work on New Orleans, be a part of it. Carry on traditions while you make new ones.” This sense of discovery comes alive in the song “Tracking My Roots” from 2012’s Black Eye Galaxy, the inspiration for which was Osborne’s desire to trace his family’s ties to Louisiana. (His grandmother’s cousin’s family immigrated to Lafayette and his grandfather had extensive business contacts in the city.) Like all his songs, “Tracking My Roots” is autobiographical. “I can take some liberties; I can write stories and twist them around a little bit, maybe change locations,” Osborne says of his approach to songwriting. “But, really, I don’t know anybody except myself all that well. And that’s what I’m most comfortable with.”

Honorary Music Chairperson David Torkanowsky played piano, and a large horn section featured many more award winners and nominees. It was a rousing conclusion to a night of special performances and awards recognizing musical achievement from 2012. Mayor Mitch Landrieu bestowed the Lifetime Achievement Award on The Meters’ Art Neville, Leo Nocentelli and Porter (Joseph “Zigaboo” Modeliste was unable to attend the ceremony). Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne presented the Entertainer of the Year Award to Anders Osborne and Allen Toussaint joined the Creole String Beans onstage as they performed his song “Here Come the Girls,” originally recorded by Ernie K-Doe. The event was sponsored by Gambit, Harrah’s New Orleans Hotel and Casino, Coleman E. Adler & Sons, Ketel One, Crown Royal and Abita Brewing Co.

Thursday, May 2 Kirk Joseph’s Backyard Groove Eclectic, adventuresome and influential New Orleans sousaphonist Kirk Joseph was drafted into the Dirty Dozen Brass Band by his older brother at the age of 13. In 2004, Joseph left the famous group to form his own Backyard Groove, whose sax, trumpet, guitar and drums compositions revolve distinctly around Joseph’s heavy, air-pushing “sousafunk” style. • 11:15 a.m.-12:05 p.m. Acura Stage

Jeffery Broussard & the Creole Cowboys

At 78 years old, saxophonist Edward “Kidd” Jordan remains the first name in New Orleans adventurous contemporary jazz. Jordan rose through the ranks in the 1950s playing on recordings by more conventional musicians like Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles and New Orleans’ own Professor Longhair. A graduate of Alvin Batiste’s Southern University in Baton Rouge, Jordan went on to teach at Southern, mentoring students including Branford and Wynton Marsalis. Jordan started the New Orleans Saxophone Ensemble with fellow local saxophonists Alvin Fielder, Clyde Kerr Jr. and London Branch. The group later changed its name to the Improvisational Arts Quintet but still plays wild, challenging compositions that, like all of Jordan’s music, is wholly improvised. Those who like their jazz smooth should take heed of Jordan’s words to NPR: “If the majority likes it, then I’m supposed to go the other way.” • 1:25 p.m.-2:15 p.m. Zatarain’s/WWOZ Jazz Tent

With his signature jeans and jean jacket, cowboy hat and toothpick in his mouth, singer and accordion player Jeffery Broussard continues to spread the gospel of the “zydeco nouveau” sound he pioneered with his Opelousas band Zydeco Force. Leading his Creole Cowboys on traditional button accordion, pianokey accordion and fiddle, Broussard meshes R&B with contemporary zydeco dance music. Like many zydeco greats, Broussard started as a child, playing drums in his father‘s band, Delton Broussard & the Lawtell Playboys. He has gone on to tour the world, performing across Africa, Russia and South America. As it was his father’s dream for his children to continue the Creole music tradition, Broussard makes sure to mix traditional songs into his albums as well as his rousing live sets. • 12:20 p.m.-1:10 p.m. Sheraton New Orleans Fais Do-Do Stage

McDonogh 35 High School Gospel Choir

A Legendary Dining Experience in New Orleans

Veronica Downs-Dorsey has taught choir at her alma mater McDonogh 35 College Preparatory High School since replacing her own music teacher there 23 years ago. She helped McDonogh 35 start the first high school choir in New Orleans and become the first school choir to perform at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. After Hurricane Katrina, it was the only school choir to perform at the 2006 Jazz Fest. The week before Jazz Fest starts, Downs-Dorsey spends the morning leading choir practice. The singers will be backed by a live band at the festival, but they practice their first song, “He’s Alive,” a capella. Downs-Dorsey prefers traditional gospel but the students’ set includes contemporary stylings as well. Between songs, the kids slouch in their chairs like any group of bored teens, but when Downs-Dorsey starts the next song’s piano intro, her students spring up in resounding recognition. “You gotta be loud because people gonna be screamin’,” Downs-Dorsey says. The students sing louder and louder as their confidence grows, until the school’s security officer is drawn to the door, stomping and clapping. Downs-Dorsey’s daughter Veronique — a former valedictorian at McDonogh 35 and current trumpet player for the Original Pinettes Brass Band — serves as the school’s assistant band direc-

the spokesman for the New Orleansbased Hip-Hop for Hope organization. Dee-1 also has helped raise money for HIV/AIDS awareness and education. Dee-1 first garnered wider exposure when the song “Jay, 50, and Weezy” from his 2009 debut album David and Goliath won limited airplay on MTV. The song takes the rapper’s idols to task for promoting violence and not doing enough to uplift the neighborhoods and housing project communities that spawned and supported them. Dee-1 has become a ubiquitous presence at hip-hop shows, opening for artists including Ice Cube, OutKast’s Big Boi and Three 6 Mafia. On stage and in the studio, Dee-1 joined forces with live musicians like the New Era Brass Band, the Rebirth Brass Band, and trumpeter Shamarr Allen with whom Dee-1 recorded the rock ’n’ brass football anthem, “Bring ’Em to the Dome.” More recently Dee-1 paired up with New Orleans legendary producer and former Cash Money beatmaker Mannie Fresh for the 2012 mixtape The Focus Tape and its hit single, “The One That Got Away.” And before we even had the chance to fully digest The Focus Tape, Dee-1 dropped a 2013 mix titled, I Hope They Hear Me (Vol. 2). • 2:45 p.m.-3:35 p.m. Congo Square Stage

Today she is helping her mother’s students practice stage moves. “The fest is real drama, real expression,” her mom says to the kids. “It’s all about getting the crowd involved, that’s how you get invited back.” This will be the fourth festival performance for 12th grader Anissa Montgomery, a student from the 9th Ward whose mother also was a student of Downs-Dorsey. Montgomery sings in three choirs outside of school and says the best part of Jazz Fest is “getting to preach to a big, new audience.” Senior and second-year choir member Oschelle James from Uptown appreciates performing at the Fair Grounds. “You never know what someone in the audience is going through that day or who you are going to touch with this music,” James says. 2:40 p.m.-3:25 p.m. Gospel Tent

Shamarr Allen & the Underdawgs New Orleans trumpet player Shamarr Allen made himself a star as the frontman for Rebirth Brass Band and went on to work as a sideman for Willie Nelson and recorded with Lenny Kravitz and Harry Connick Jr. While many of his New Orleans brass peers focus on improvisation, Allen populates his albums and live sets with backing band the Underdawgs, playing original songs that combine hip-hop, rock, pop and funk in a sound he calls “hip-rock.” Allen is just as well-loved in New Orleans for the free music school for children he leads with sponsor SilenceIsViolence. Since 2007,

Allen also teaches youngsters about the music business.

In 2007, Smith was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and 2009 saw the release of Patti Smith: Dream of Life, a documentary filmed over an 11-year period by fashion photographer Steven Sebring.

Lil’ Nathan & the Zydeco Big Timers If you plan to be a famous zydeco artist, you better start early. At the age of 5, Nathan Williams Jr. began playing rubboard in his father’s band Nathan and the Zydeco Cha-Chas. His father guided him as he moved to drums and then accordion. At 14, Williams — by then also dubbed Lil’ Nathan — released his first album, Zydeco Ballin’. Written for him primarily by his father, Zydeco Ballin’ took a more modern approach, spanning styles from traditional zydeco waltzes accompanied by French lyrics to more upbeat “nouveau zydeco” tunes. Williams went on to major in jazz studies at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. With his band, the Zydeco Big Timers, he has garnered praise from The New York Times and won various zydeco awards. Though he is part of the tradition that nurtured famous zydeco families such as the Carriers, Chavises, Cheniers and Delafoses, Lil Nathan also works with rappers like New Orleans’ Juvenile, with whom he recorded “Go Getta.” Williams’ latest album is 2012’s Big Timer Nation: Go Hard or Go Home. • 6 p.m.-7 p.m. Sheraton New Orleans Fais Do-Do Stage

Though she sounds little like her New York peers Blondie and the Ramones, poet and artist Patti Smith is known as “the godmother of punk.” In 1975, her group’s debut Horses simultaneously defined and redefined punk. Its passionate and poetic vocal-driven influence touched everyone from R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe to Siouxsie and the Banshees to Sammy Hagar, who recorded the Horses track “Free Money.” Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth famously summed up punk with a Smith reference: “The strongest and most original force in the music’s history had been a woman.” As a New Jersey teenager Smith explored religion, alternating between Catholicism, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Tibetan Buddhism before finally shifting her devotion to songwriter Bob Dylan and French poet Arthur Rimbaud. In 1979, Smith married Fred “Sonic” Smith, guitarist of Detroit’s MC5, and moved to Michigan where the couple had two kids. In 1994, Fred Smith died, followed by Patti’s brother, and then her former love, photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. Smith’s 2010 memoir detailing her relationship with Mapplethorpe, Just Kids, won a National Book Award. Smith finally moved back to New York, and though she still releases music, she has concentrated just as

Friday, May 3 Royal Teeth Royal Teeth’s live shows often end with the firing of confetti cannons, and one might say their music is the aural interpretation of bursts of colorful paper. Like fellow Lafayette indie-pop outfit GIVERS, the band is known for bright Dirty Projectors and Vampire Weekend-esque Afro-pop, driven by playful percussion and guy-girl vocal team Gary Larsen and Nora Patterson. He brings a bounding energy to the band that often manifests itself in singing from atop an amp or jumping into the audience to play a drum; her vocal prowess adds soul to their cover of The Knife’s “Heartbeats.” Royal Teeth released its debut EP Act Naturally in 2012, and the magical-realist video for lead single “Wild” was featured on MTV’s Buzzworthy blog. The group made its television debut on Last Call with Carson Daly — a performance including confetti cannons and inaudience drumming. • 11:15 a.m.-12:05 p.m. Acura Stage

Holly Williams Although she hails from a well-known country music family — daughter of Hank Williams Jr., granddaughter of Hank Williams Sr. — Holly Williams had to find her own voice in that world. Her first two albums, The Ones We Never Knew and Here With Me, were released on major labels and feature a polished, Nashville country sound. But her 2013 album The Highway, released on an independent label, seems a more fitting home for the singer, whose world-worn voice lends itself more to somber, country-tinged adult contemporary songs about heartbreak and boozers. On the album opener “Drinkin’,” her voice cracks in places to reveal pain as melancholy fiddles crescendo before she sings “I raised your babies and I kissed your

lips/ So why you cheatin’ on a woman like this?” Williams also runs a women’s boutique in Nashville that counts Gwyneth Paltrow, who provides some backing vocals on The Highway, as a fan. • 12:15 p.m.-1:05 p.m. Gentilly Stage

Laura Bell Bundy Broadway stars’ forays into mainstream music don’t often make a splash, with many releasing albums of covers or unremarkable originals. Laura Bell Bundy opted instead to go full-throttle with her ambitions by venturing into pop-country that, at times, teeters on camp — but at least it’s original. Bundy originated lead roles in the off-Broadway production of Ruthless! The Musical, Broadway productions of Hairspray and most notably a Tony-nominated turn in Legally Blonde: The Musical, in which she played Elle

Woods until she was succeeded by the winner of an MTV reality show contest. Her first single “Giddy on Up,” a catchy country kiss-off that’s heavy on fiddle but has some soul via a lively brass section, peaked at No. 30 on the Billboard country chart. Her latest single is the sappy “That’s What Angels Do.” • 2:05 p.m.-3:05 p.m. Acura Stage

Sasha Masakowski Sasha Masakowski’s band name, Musical Playground, is fitting since the jazz chanteuse’s voice is known for its acrobatic and playful qualities, and she and her band toy with bossa nova, Brazilian rhythms and traditional jazz. Masakowski has toured around the world and is a fixture at local jazz clubs, sometimes performing with her father, guitarist Steve Masakowski. She won the Big

Easy Music Award for Best Emerging Artist in 2010 and has been nominated for awards several times since. She released Wishes in 2012. • 2:35 p.m.-3:35 p.m. Lagniappe Stage

Brushy One-String As his name implies, Brushy OneString’s (real name: Andrew Chin) hallmark is his one-string guitar. But the Jamaican artist, whose father was soul singer Freddie McKay and whose mother was a backup singer for Tina Turner and others, is captivating beyond what could be seen as a gimmick – rounding out the one-string plucking are his gentle percussive taps on the guitar’s body and his soul- and jazz-influenced voice. Following an appearance in the documentary Rise Up, Chin became a YouTube star garnering thousands of

hits per video. He releases his first studio album Destiny at the end of April, and Galactic’s Ben Ellman says the band plans to record a song with Chin. • 2:55 p.m.-3:30 p.m. Blues Tent

Lonely Island goof on a recent Saturday Night Live hosting gig and making a cameo on the series American Horror Story. The rest of the band has certainly benefited from Levine’s popularity, with singles “One More Night” and “Payphone” from 2012’s Overexposed peaking at No. 1 and 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, respectively. The band’s sound has evolved from debut album Songs About Jane’s vanilla soul-rock (“Harder to Breathe,” “This Love”), to Jamiroquaiesque disco-pop (“Makes Me Wonder,” wildly successful “Moves Like Jagger”), to electro-reggae (“One More Night”), picking up three Grammy Awards along the way. “Payphone,” a collaboration with rapper Wiz Khalifa that appears on Overexposed, represents the culmination of the increasing influence of Auto-Tune on Levine’s voice that, while in the same vein as the forgettable dorm-room rock from Jason Mraz and John Mayer, has some soulful qualities that are showcased on early songs like the breezy “Sunday Morning.” • 5:20 p.m.-7 p.m. Acura Stage

rockabilly musician Carl Perkins, jazz great Django Reinhardt and composer Irving Berlin, whose song is the title track. It harkens back to 1978’s Stardust, another album of standards that worried Columbia executives — who feared the pop album would taint Nelson’s “outlaw country” image — but became a surprise hit. Nelson still grabs headlines as an activist and an advocate for marijuana use and environmental causes — he and his family band will roll

to town on a bus that runs on BioWillie, the diesel fuel alternative produced by a company Nelson started. Most recently he chimed in on the same-sex marriage debate in Texas Monthly: “I’ve known straight and gay people all my life. I can’t tell the difference … people are people where I came from,” he said. “But I’d never marry a guy I didn’t like.” • 5:45 p.m.-7 p.m. Gentilly Stage

Saturday, May 4 Red Stick Ramblers Baton Rouge’s crisply dressed Red Stick Ramblers’ barn-bursting energy propels its genre-smashing of traditional Louisiana music. Singing in Cajun French, the band drags country twang and swamp pop into string-popping zydeco fais do-do — then quickly spins foot-stomping drink-

hop artists, with the venerable DJ Mike Swift and DJ Poppa holding down the stage. Rapper 3D Na’tee has released a string of successful mixtapes since 2006, reportedly earning the attention of mega-producer Timbaland (a deal she turned down). She released the acclaimed album The Coronation last year, a few months after she smoked rising MC Kendrick Lamar in a freestyle at South by Southwest. The lineup also pays tribute to longtime MC and bounce artist 5th Ward Weebie, who joins them onstage. The lineup includes bounce artist Big Choo, whose Game Ova Boyz dance crew is certain to steal some of the show. • 12:45 p.m.-1:40 pm. Congo Square Stage

Fleetwood Mac On last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 35th anniversary release of the landmark 1977 album Rumours, Fleetwood Mac added more than two dozen unreleased demos and outtakes from the legendary session remembered for the melodrama surrounding its making. Recorded over a tense few months in Sausalito, Calif. at the Record Plant studio (a mostly windowless wood cabin home to cocaine-fueled all-nighters), Rumours serves as the definitive Fleetwood Mac album, and its songs carry the weight of band membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; broken relationships and brewing affairs. The previously unreleased sessions are haunted by that tension â&#x20AC;&#x201D; when the members wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak to one another but recorded harmonies face-to-face with nothing but a microphone between them. From Lindsey Buckinghamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pessimistic power pop

(â&#x20AC;&#x153;Go Your Own Wayâ&#x20AC;?) and Christine McVieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopeful R&B (â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Make Loving Funâ&#x20AC;?) to Stevie Nicksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mystic melancholy (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dreamsâ&#x20AC;?), the albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dark pop â&#x20AC;&#x201D; anchored by the polished production and rock-solid rhythm section (bassist John McVie and drummer Mick Fleetwood) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was an almost immediate commercial success. Other albums â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 1979â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tusk, 1982â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mirage and 1987â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tango in the Night â&#x20AC;&#x201D; couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t match the overwhelming success of Rumours, and middling albums, with and without its key members, followed. A 30-date 2013 tour on the heels of Rumoursâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; anniversary and rerelease also will unveil new compositions that Buckingham says recall Fleetwood Mac at its best. Missing from the stage, however, will be Christine McVie, who retired in 1998. â&#x20AC;˘ 5:10 p.m.-7 p.m. Acura Stage

Before the 25-year-old Grammy Award-winning R&B artist made major waves with last year’s massive studio debut Channel Orange, Frank Ocean was Christopher Francis Breaux, a kid who grew up in New Orleans under the influence of jazz, pop and commercial R&B. He enrolled at the University of New Orleans in 2005 and moved to Los Angeles following Hurricane Katrina and the federal floods. There he joined the sprawling weirdo rat pack Odd Future, a hip-hop collective that released his 2011 mixtape Nostalgia, ULTRA, producing the singles “Novacane” and “Swim Good.” Ocean caught the attention of Jay-Z and Kanye West, who added him to not one but two standout tracks on the rappers’ gold-flaked duet Watch the Throne. But it’s on Ocean’s proper debut, 2012’s Channel Orange, that he showcases his psychedelic, personal spin on otherworldly neo-soul, borrow-

ing pop riffs from Stevie Wonder and lustful soul from D’Angelo while also comfortably taking the reins from them. • 5:25 p.m.-6:55 p.m. Congo Square Stage

Stanley Clarke and George Duke Project Bassist Stanley Clarke and keyboardist George Duke released a trio of wildhaired space-funk and jazz-influenced pop in the early 1980s. Though the duo’s romantic hit “Sweet Baby” was its breakout commercial hit, The Clarke/Duke Project primed party dance floors with wicked, dripping synthesizers and Clarke’s fat, fast-fingered and big-bottomed bass riffs. Last year, the duo reconnected for the Clarke/ Duke 4 Bring It! Tour. • 5:30 p.m.-7 p.m. Zatarain’s/WWOZ Jazz Tent

Sunday, May 5 D.L. Menard & the Louisiana Aces D.L. Menard has been called “the Cajun Hank Williams” for his high-pitched singing style and heartfelt songs of rural Acadian life. Born in Erath, La., he’s been playing with the Louisiana Aces since 1952, picking up a couple of Grammy nominations and a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship along the way. Menard inspired many traditional south Louisiana musicians that followed him, and his song “La Porte d’en Arriere” (“The Back Door”) is considered the most recorded and performed Cajun song of all time. • 11:15 a.m.-12:05 p.m. Sheraton New Orleans Fais Do-Do Stage

Ernie Vincent & the Top Notes

New Orleans Classic R&B Recording Revue featuring Clarence “Frogman” Henry, Frankie Ford, Robert Parker and Al “Carnival Time” Johnson The phrase “one-hit wonder” doesn’t do justice to this roster of accomplished musicians and R&B pioneers. These artists recorded a slew of sides at Cosimo Matassa’s legendary J&M Recording Studio, and their most famous songs remain essential recordings from the early days of rock ’n’ roll. Henry’s “Ain’t Got No Home,” Parker’s “Barefootin’,” Ford’s “Sea Cruise” and Johnson’s “Carnival Time,” are steeped in the 1950s New Orleans sound that earned Matassa a spot

Feufollet In south Louisiana, Feufollet and a recent wave of young bands are embracing their Cajun roots while fusing traditional songs with indie rock attitude. Feufollet got a Grammy nod for 2010’s En Couleurs, which bears a Cajun French title, but the band has evolved significantly since the mid-’90s when members first got together as teenagers to play traditional Cajun music. Combining fiddles and accordions with electric guitars and modern production techniques, Feufollet’s catalog includes original material and classic Acadian folk songs. Most songs are sung in Cajun French, even as the band courts mainstream success. Expectations are high for Feufollet’s next album, which it’ll begin recording later this year. • 1:40 p.m.-2:35 p.m. Sheraton New Orleans Fais Do-Do Stage

AL ‘CARNIVAL TIME’ JOHNSON APPEARS WITH THE NEW ORLEANS CLASSIC RECORDING REVUE.

Several of the original Meters return to Jazz Fest with yet another variation of the original lineup, this time with Page McConnell from Phish filling in for Art Neville on keys. The moniker Meter Men was first used when the founding members appeared as a trio without Neville at the 2009 festival. The Meter Men were joined by McConnell last fall for a short East Coast tour. McConnell proved to be a good fit, finding the groove on Meters’ classics like “Cissy Strut,” “Ain’t No Use” and “Hey Pocky Way.” The group has a handful of spring dates scheduled in Tampa, Fla., New York City and Philadelphia before landing in New Orleans. • 1:50 p.m.-3 p.m. Acura Stage

Ernie Vincent, a seasoned veteran of New Orleans R&B, caught a second wind in 2009. Though he got his start playing guitar with the likes of Ernie K-Doe, Jessie Hill and Eddie Bo, Vincent became known for his 1972 single “Dap Walk,” a soulful jam that still stands as a vintage track of the era. Vincent revived his classic band the Top Notes in recent years with a new lineup of young talent and energy. Now Ernie Vincent and the Top Notes are back in clubs, playing regular gigs at d.b.a. and Le Bon Temps Roule with a driving horn and rhythm section and a sound that leans hard on the blues. Vincent was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2011. • 11:15 a.m.-noon Blues Tent

from the early blues sound inspired by North Mississippi players like Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside. After recording their first four albums in drummer Patrick Carney’s basement studio and touring constantly, the band teamed up with pop producer Danger Mouse who helped craft their sound for a larger audience. The Black Keys have a strong connection to New Orleans. Guitarist Dan Auerbach produced Dr. John’s 2012 release Locked Down, a record that many regard as the Night Tripper’s return to form and earned Auerbach an additional Grammy for Producer of the Year. At the awards show, Dr. John and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band joined the Black Keys on stage for a rendition of its single “Lonely Boy.” • 3:45 p.m.-5:05 p.m. Acura Stage

Earlier this year he returned to the Blue Note label to release Without a Net, his first record for Blue Note in 43 years. Shorter founded the iconic jazz fusion group Weather Report in 1971, but he got his start playing hard bop with Art Blakely’s Jazz Messengers. He moved into the era of fusion playing alongside Herbie Hancock in Miles Davis’ Quintet, where he composed songs for influential albums like Miles Smiles and Bitches Brew.

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews will close out the Acura Stage, perhaps starting a tradition of his own. Andrews grew up following the second line traditions of his childhood Treme neighborhood, but Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue bring New Orleans music to a wider audience with their unique brand of funk and rock. Andrews honed his arena-rock chops as a member of Lenny Kravitz’s band, and that experience is evident on his last two albums, 2010’s Backatown and the 2011 follow-up For True. The strength of those records and the band’s raucous live shows have taken them across the globe playing clubs and festivals. Andrews plans to release an album later this year produced by soul man Raphael Saadiq. • 5:35 p.m.-7 p.m. Acura Stage

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band has found success with a string of musical partnerships in recent years — from My Morning Jacket to gospel greats the Blind Boys of Alabama — and the relationship with the Del McCoury Band seems to be an enduring partnership. The two bands teamed up for the 2011 release American Legacies, and a North American tour followed, including an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. McCoury has been a staple of the bluegrass scene for more than half a century, including a stint with Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys where he learned from the Father of Bluegrass himself. With Del on guitar, sons Ronnie and Rob playing mandolin and banjo, and backed by one of the city’s most famous jazz bands, they blend high lonesome harmonies and swinging brass. • 5:45 p.m.-7 p.m. Sheraton New Orleans Fais Do-Do Stage

Aaron Neville The Neville Brothers surprised many Jazz Fest faithful when news broke that the band wouldn’t play its usual closing spot on Sunday. Instead, Aaron Neville closes down the Gentilly Stage as a solo act. The reason is Aaron’s focus on his new Blue Note album My True Story, released at the beginning of this year. Produced by Don Was and Keith Richards, My True Story is a tribute to the doowop songs of Neville’s childhood, punched up in part by contributions from Richards and Benmont Tench, the keyboardist for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The album includes covers of classic numbers like the Ronettes’ “Be My Baby” and the Drifters’ “Under the Boardwalk.” • 6 p.m.-7 p.m. Gentilly Stage

PHOENIX 5:30 P.M. - 7 P.M. SATURDAY, MAY 4 | GENTILLY STAGE PHOTO BY ARNAUD POTIER

Sofia Coppola, whom he met while producing the soundtrack to her haunting 1999 movie The Virgin Suicides. Finding itself in uncharted territory, Phoenix — a highly stylized, quintessentially French group that recalls aspects of the swagger of ’70s discoera Rolling Stones, sing-along frivolity of ABBA, and intrepid aesthetic of Daft Punk — decided to plot its own course. The band turned the remix/ mashup notion running rampant in today’s music industry on its plagiarizing head by offering on its website multiple remixes and recordings of tracks from Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, which ultimately went gold and won the 2010 Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album. That spawned countless remixes, most notably ones from Passion Pit and Animal Collective. Concert and festival promoters from across the globe tossed bigdollar offers at them for several years, but Phoenix declined. Instead, they put together the pieces for Bankrupt! in relative obscurity, recording most of it in a space they rented in a seedy neighborhood in Paris. “We like mysteries,” d’Arcy says to explain why the band kept its cards

so close to the chest over the last several years. “We like corrupting them around the present vision. Because you sometimes don’t see while the eye is open. Since we started, that’s been our consciousness.” Their shared shamanistic sense of pursuing music in its purest form is evident when the bandmates all play a rotation of instruments, as they did while recording Bankrupt!. Experimental in every regard, Phoenix used a cheap toy keyboard on some parts of the album and also paid $17,000 on eBay for the vintage console also used to mix Michael Jackson’s Thriller. If there’s any cohesive account to glean from listening to Phoenix’s latest album, it’s one of precocious talents developing a bit of cynicism and world-weary wisdom while also having a fine time globetrotting the world as rock stars. You’ll find lyrics such as “Scandinavian leather/ Drakkar Noir/ Fake riches, oblivious tales,” (“Drakkar Noir”) and “When every piece of every costume is stolen” (“SOS in Bel Air”). But then you’ll hear about Mars floating pixielike into an adoring crowd and oozing gratitude upon the raucous conclusion of the band’s first stop on

its current tour in Brooklyn, N.Y. Asked about the meaning of the lyrics in “SOS in Bel Air,” d’Arcy offers little insight into their collective consciousness, deflecting instead: “We get asked about the meaning of that song a lot. All I can tell you is that it’s seen through very French eyes. Obviously, everybody knows this Bel Air is in California. But it is also a French name meaning beautiful air.” D’Arcy is less opaque when providing an explanation to the album’s title. “We liked the edgy symbol to it,” he says. “Going bankrupt — it’s being on the edge of failing.” While hardly on the edge of failing, either commercially or artistically, Phoenix places other layers — like its trademark synthesizers sailing over the wail of Fender guitars — on the word’s connotation. “No matter if it’s a gig, an album, a tour, we put everything, all whole lives, into it,” d’Arcy says. “So there’s also this meaning of emotionally bankrupt. We gave everything we had to get to this point. So in that way it’s meant as a term for absolute commitment. There’s a notion of the absolute in bankruptcy that we like.”

GAMBIT > BESTOFNEWORLEANS.COM > APRIL 30 > 2013

eached by phone while at the trip-friendly confines of California’s Coachella festival, a three-day freakout in the desert that is more Burning Man than baby boomer gathering, Phoenix bassist Deck d’Arcy talks about the French band’s new light show. “We’ve been working a lot on it, and we’re pretty happy about how it turned out,” d’Arcy says from the festival grounds, where the band served as headliners on its first American tour in years. “When we all saw it finished, we were like, ‘Wow … that is psychedelic.’” The psychedelic label has been applied frequently to the latest album by the four men (d’Arcy, vocalist Thomas Mars, guitarists Laurent Brancowitz and Christian Mazzalai) from Versailles, France. Lush, ambient synthesizers and danceable rhythms mark much of Bankrupt!. (Loyaute/Glassnote). Media coverage featuring heavy use of the term started in January when the band announced Bankrupt!’s release and has continued on the current tour, through Coachella and to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Asked about the extended organ waves that introduce the album’s title track (which clocks in at just under seven minutes, a combined long time and rare sound for international pop sensations), d’Arcy says the extended organ-wave intro to the title track was recorded two years ago in rural Australia — and under the influence of a shaman the band consulted while there. “We were just finishing up a tour (in Australia) and ended up in some random town, doing random things, making these random recordings. We went to see this shaman, who was really cool. … It’s funny to think now about the end result.” Such strange, spontaneous recording compels fans and scribes alike to apply the psychedelic label in describing a band they felt they knew so well just a few years ago. But Phoenix’s post-shaman departure — from previous practices, preconceived notions, or perhaps even reality itself — is but one part of a band that is older, wiser and light years removed from its breakout year in 2009. Four years ago, the talented quartet of friends in their mid-30s became big-time stars upon the release of the insanely popular Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, their fourth LP. The power-pop masterstroke packed popular punch, from dance-floor favorites “1901” and “Lisztomania” — which were so accessible they made it into American wedding-DJ sets. The band’s popularitu also prompted a tabloid-cover wedding when Mars tied the knot with filmmaker

The 2013 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival Congo Square poster features Stanley Dural Jr., better known as Buckwheat Zydeco, and was painted by R. Gregory Christie. Dural was an accomplished keyboardist when he joined Clifton Chenier’s Red Hot Louisiana Band in 1976. By 1978, he switched to accordion and in 1979 launched his own band. Buckwheat Zydeco was the first zydeco act signed to a major label. He has been nominated for multiple Grammy awards and won one for Lay Your Burden Down (2009). Christie has created covers for many jazz albums, is a former illustrator for The New Yorker and has illustrated more than 40 books. For more information visit www.art4now.com.

uring the 1980s, Daryl Hall and John Oates created their “rock and soul” sound by manipulating new musical technology, and with the help of music videos became what Billboard describes as the top-selling duo in rock, with 34 songs reaching the Top 100 chart. Since singing backup for Smokey Robinson almost 40 years ago, Hall has proved himself to be one of the best white soul singers of all time with hits like “Sara Smile.” His falsetto is so sweet on “One On One,” listeners might not realize the lyrics are sports metaphors. “I switch naturally between my natural voice and my falsetto; it kind of flows and overlaps,” says Hall, who doesn’t like the term blue-eyed soul. “I am a second tenor — if you want to get technical about it — but my falsetto increases my range considerably.” Hall and Oates met in the late 1960s. In the ’70s, the duo released the hits “She’s Gone” and their first No. 1 single, “Rich Girl.” In the early ’80s, Hall and Oates set out on some experimentation, including Hall’s partnership with King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp — which sounds like a dream combo but was not a success at the time. In the mid-’80s Hall and Oates produced their own work, finally hitting their stride with songs like “Kiss On My List,” “You Make My Dreams,” and the adult-funk megahit “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do),” from 1981’s Private Eyes album. “Today we have a good problem,” Hall says. “We can’t even play all of our hits in one set, or else we’d have to play for three hours. That’s not a brag, it’s the truth. And that being said, we like to throw in some lesser-known songs like ‘Uncanny.’”

By Michael Patrick Welch

Aside from a 2006 Christmas album, the duo have not written or recorded original material together since 2003’s Do It For the Love. Hall has publicly suggested that, outside of their live shows, the duo’s writing partnership is over. “John and I are together through our body of work,” Hall says. “Even during our recording time, which extended all of those years, we didn’t write that much together. You can’t really tell from the credits, but we wrote a lot separately. We did come together on some really important songs like ‘She’s Gone’ and ‘Maneater’ and ‘Out of Touch,’ but most of the songs were written more separately. We’ve always been two solo artists working together. We’ve tried to maintain a separateness, which is one of the reasons we’re still together, really.” Despite roots in Philly soul, much of Hall and Oates’ work featured synthesizers and other electronic effects, creating new wave soul-pop. Today, Hall prefers a more organic sound. “I’ve come up through every kind of technology in music,” he says. “When I started out it was four-track reel-to-reel and the only nonacoustic instruments you could play were the electric guitar, electric piano and organ. I saw the Moog become the Polymoog, and all different kinds of advances in keyboard technology in the ’80s. My music in the ’80s reflected that, because I was making use of all these new tools. Now I’ve sort of gone past all that because I don’t really feel the technology has gone any farther than it did then. … So I just sort of revert to a more simplistic way of production and recording now than I did in the ’80s.”

HALL AND OATES 4 P.M. - 5:30 P.M. SUNDAY, MAY 5 GENTILLY STAGE PHOTO BY CAMERON WITTIG

This approach and sound is on display in Hall’s web and TV show Live From Daryl’s House (www.livefromdarylshouse.com), in which the singer invites old friends (Joe Walsh) and hip younger artists (Minus the Bear) into his home in upstate New York to jam, mostly on old Hall and Oates tunes. The show has traveled to Todd Rundgren’s Hawaiian home, but mostly Hall pairs up with artists like Chromeo and Cee Lo Green. Hall also records solo work, such as 2011’s Laughing Down Crying. His singing on that album is immediately recognizable and as pleasing as ever, though the songs have less open space

than Hall and Oates’ best work. Known as an electric piano man in Hall and Oates, Hall fills up his newer work with guitars. “I started playing piano when I was 5, then throughout my teenage years grew proficient on keyboards; then in my 20s, I started picking up the guitar,” he says. “I thought the guitar would complete my ability to write different styles and play different ways. I go back and forth, but especially on stage I like playing guitar.” At times, it has been difficult to discern Oates’ role in the duo’s success. He last made headlines in 1989 for shaving off his moustache (in favor of a soul patch).

GAMBIT > BESTOFNEWORLEANS.COM > APRIL 30 > 2013

Oates’ bio states that, before meeting Hall, “One night you might catch John wearing a sharkskin suit playing everything from doo-wop to the big R&B hits of the day with his band. The next night it was not unusual to find him playing his acoustic guitar in a local coffeehouse singing Appalachian folk ballads.” More recently, Oates performed songs from his 2008 solo album 1000 Miles of Life with Hall on Live From Daryl’s House. In 2011, Elektra released Oates’ Mississippi Mile, which features a collaboration with country star Vince Gill and purports to touch on “roots blues, modern pop, contemporary country, experimental Americana and Philly soul.” Oates’ genre-blending eclecticism seems better suited to his latest ongoing series of digital releases, Good Road To Follow. Oates also joins Hall’s band on the road to play the hits. Instead of Hall and Oates’ iconic lineup of guitarist G.E. Smith and late bassist Tom “T-Bone” Wolk (both helped power the Saturday Night Live band from 1985 to 1995), the duo is now backed by the Daryl’s House band. “I always use that same band,” Hall says. “That’s my band. And when John is in it, it’s his band. We have a great musical relationship and I’ve had a lot of these guys for quite a while. (Most) of them I’ve known for decades. Our saxophone player Charles ‘Mr. Casual’ DeChant joined our band in 1975.” As evidenced by Live at Daryl’s House, the band often gives Hall and Oates’ hits, especially those from the ’80s, a more organic feel. “I think the songs have evolved, and in some cases maybe devolved into a more simplistic style,” Hall says. “I’ve been playing the Hall and Oates catalog so many different ways over the years. We’ve done acoustic tours without any electric instruments at all. We’ve played shows that were more electronically oriented. Now, the band I have, their style really allows all the different elements to be involved in the arrangements. They don’t sound like the records, but if you listen to our set it’s all of a piece now.”

eaturing competitive pricing and frequent shipments from countries including France, Egypt, China and India, Dop Antiques & Architecturals (300 Jefferson Hwy., 504-231-3397; www.dopantiques.com) has secured a niche for itself since opening in 2000. Owner Michiel Dop keeps his 15,000-square-foot warehouse filled with an ever-changing mix of antiques and antique reproductions. A native of the Netherlands, Dop came to New Orleans after meeting his New Orleanian wife, Adela. He immediately recognized a business opportunity. “I saw Magazine Street and Royal Street and couldn’t believe the prices they were getting for antiques,” he says. The couple began importing antiques from France, Belgium, England, Italy and the Netherlands and wholesaling them to the design trade. When Hurricane Katrina’s widespread losses created an increased demand for furnishings in a city with a longstanding love for antiques, Dop started retailing his inventory. He quickly garnered a whole new following. “I have customers who come in every three weeks to see what’s new,” says Dop, who receives shipments at three-week intervals and sometimes as often as twice a month. “I still work with the (design) industry a lot too,” he adds, noting that Dop always provides designer and dealer discounts. The local film industry — particularly period films — also has been a good market for Dop. Dop travels to Europe several times a

The menu at restaurateur Dickie Brennan’s new Tableau (616 S. Peter St., 504-934-3463; www.tableaufrenchquarter.com) reads like a modern renovation of the cuisine served at nearby French Creole institutions: Green onion aioli and fried capers join the crabmeat ravigote, panko encases paneed veal, and Abita Turbodog beer is worked into the onion soup. The approach feels apt, since the restaurant adjoins a French Quarter institution of another sort that has undergone its own modern renovation. Tableau opened in the same building that is home to Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre (www.lepetittheatre. com), which is recognized as the oldest community theater in America, with roots stretching back to 1916. In December 2010, financial problems caused the theater to cancel its season and lay off staff. Debate over how to revive the theater divided the local arts community, but by the end of 2011 the theater’s board signed a deal to sell part of the property

f New Orleans was not specifically pining for a modern coastal Italian dining experience in a refurbished industrial space at the Marigny/Bywater border, you wouldn’t know it by the diners filling Mariza. Mariza’s dining room glows at candlelight wattage but seems to pulse with its own energy. The room is packed with people — at high-top tables and long communal tables, framed by windows and in a loud back room. The busy open kitchen melds with the bar, where one woman hoists a Negroni, the bartender pulls Sicilian wine bottles from ice baths, a cook molds goat cheese ricotta and microgreens over bruschetta and a man slurps oysters at the raw bar. Very far from Creole Italian or American Italian, Mariza is more akin to Domenica locally and follows the regional Italian style that chef Mario Batali helped popularize nationally. But this restaurant arrived with its own New Orleans bona fides. Ian Schnoebelen and wife Laurie Casebonne are longtime Bywater residents who also run the French Quarter finedining standout Iris. Prices at Mariza are moderate, and portions follow suit. Schnoebelen’s approach emphasizes big, elemental flavors tailored by a restrained hand. A quail is split, wrapped in pancetta and grilled until dark lines mark the meat. The technique melds smoky flavor with crisp textures and a drizzle of saba, an intense and ancient relative to balsamic vinegar, gives a thick, sweet-sour bite. The rib-eye is unusually lean but still full of flavor and is served Tuscan-style over a bed of bitter, leafy

greens. The sashimi-like crudo dressed with olive oil and sea salt dazzles the palate, and the plain-sounding raw vegetable salad proves just as memorable, thanks to its balance, beauty and freshness. Platters of cured meats and cheeses are fixtures across the New Orleans dining scene now, but at Mariza they seem indispensible. Watch in particular for a special of cured lamb leg sliced like prosciutto and strewn over herbs and roasted beets. Pizzas are not quite the equal of the strictly Neapolitan ones served at Ancora in Uptown, but they make a shareable course for a group sampling across the menu. Pastas are good but generally upstaged by other dishes, and a black, seafood-laden linguine was too muddled compared to the elegant dishes that characterize most of Schnoebelen’s food. These complaints are quibbles though. The only mistake patrons can make at Mariza is parking in the lot right outside its door. Though this large lot is usually empty by the dinner hour, its owner (unrelated to the restaurant) enforces a roundthe-clock towing policy with astonishing vigor. Mariza doesn’t take reservations, but the potential for chaos at this busy place is smartly eased by the maitre d’, who does much more than greet and seat. He orchestrates the room, filling gaps in service and smoothing the wait. That speaks to another dynamic behind Mariza’s early success. This is a casual restaurant that still takes hospitality seriously.

Washington state’s vineyard acreage, number of wineries, wine production and sales have increased steadily over the past 20 years. The large Columbia Valley American Viticultural Area (AVA) encompasses smaller, more tightly defined AVAs such as the Wahluke Slope where most of this wine’s fruit was sourced. The wine was cool fermented in stainless steel and remained on the lees for 7 months. It rested in 5 percent new oak for a few more months before bottling. In the glass, it offers aromas of tart apple and pear. On the palate, taste melon flavors, citrus, some savory notes and an undertone of minerality balanced by crisp acidity. Drink it with trout meuniere or amandine, grilled shrimp, stuffed crab, roasted chicken, pork loin, soft cheeses and pasta bordelaise. Buy it at: Swirl Wine Bar & Market and Dorignac’s. Drink it at: Swirl Wine Bar & Market and Zachary’s Restaurant.

Le Petit and Tableau share the building’s lobby and center courtyard, and Brennan has said he hopes the restaurant can help boost ticket sales at the theater. Whether a visit here includes a play or not, Tableau has planted an ambitious restaurant on the edge of Jackson Square. From the first floor bar and dining room areas, a grand staircase sweeps up to a warren of private dining rooms with access to balconies overlooking the square and the courtyard. The chef is Ben Thibodeaux, a Lafayette native who was most recently chef de cuisine at Brennan’s nearby restaurant the Palace Cafe. Shrimp remoulade, fried eggplant sticks and elaborate poached egg dishes (eggs Hussarde, eggs Sardou) all evoke old-school Creole tradition. But more contemporary touches are always close at hand, like crab claws in truffle vinaigrette, roasted bone marrow with rib-eye and oysters en brochette using rosemary sprigs as the skewers and roasted garlic beurre blanc as the sauce. Tableau serves lunch and dinner daily.

Ba Chi Canteen (7900 Maple St., 504-373-5628) is now open near the Uptown universities with a menu that goes far off the beaten path for casual Vietnamese eateries. Its departure from the standards seems timely, because the ranks of Vietnamese noodle shops around New Orleans keep growing, with at least three new examples now operating or coming soon around the city. Ba Chi Canteen has a notable pedigree. It’s run by Phat Vu and Quinn Nguyen, who are familiar faces from Tan Dinh (1705 Lafayette St., 504-361-8008), a stalwart West Bank Vietnamese restaurant that lured New Orleanians over the bridge long before the pho options spread across Uptown. This new venture has a few of the specialties that have distinguished Tan Dinh — roasted quail, garlic butter chicken wings, Korean short ribs and, of course, pho — but Ba Chi is also carving out its own niche with an assortment of steamed buns, or banh bao, that they’re calling “bacos,” a pun on tacos. They cost $3 or $4 each and come stuffed with everything from curry chicken and teriyaki shrimp to Korean-style steak and pork belly (the restaurant’s name means pork belly,

T

he New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival inspires countless personal rituals, and one many people share is a visit to Liuzza’s by the Track (1518 N. Lopez St., 504-218-7888; www.facebook.com/liuzzas), a tavern near the Fair Grounds Race Course and Slots known for its gumbo and barbecue shrimp poboys. Though the building had long been a bar, its culinary reputation accrued after Billy Gruber and business partner Jimmy Lemarie bought it in 1996. Gruber is no longer involved in the day-to-day operations at Liuzza’s by the Track, instead keeping busy with consulting work for other restaurants.

Ciro’s Cote Sud 7918 Maple St., (504) 866-9551 www.cotesudrestaurant.com Onion soup, steak frites and French bistro classics are delivered to addresses in Uptown.

What was Liuzza’s by the Track like when you took it over? Gruber: It was really just a dive with a bar and a pool table. I remember someone told me after we got into it, “You got the horse racing season and Jazz Fest season, you got it made.” Well, great, but that’s only four months and a few weeks. That’s how we realized we had to make it a destination for people all year, and the way to do that was with the food.

Good to Go NOLA

You’re consulting for new restaurants now. What’s a big difference between opening a restaurant today compared with when you started? G: Drive around town these days and try to find a dead restaurant. This is the first time I can ever remember in this city when you can’t find an empty place with a hood and a grease trap that’s ready to go. There are just so many restaurants, and we have so much variety now. But that’s also why you see places that were little shotguns or storefronts getting turned into restaurants. All the old places you used to be able to get are snapped up. Your father ran restaurants and you grew up in the business. Did you ever consider a different career path? G: I don’t call it growing up in the restaurant business, I call it a curse. Once you get in the business and you own something and you work on it every day, you feel the passion and you can’t go do something else. I’m at this point in the journey of life where I should be taking a break, but I can’t. You just can’t leave it. Like I say, it’s a curse. — IAN MCNULTY

and the stuff is everywhere across the menu). Ba Chi Canteen serves lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday. A few blocks away, Pho Bistreaux (1200 S. Carrollton Ave., 504-3048334) is expected to open this week inside a former bank branch that has housed a number of eateries in recent years. Pho Bistreaux will offer table service and a menu of Vietnamese standards plus a few twists, such as banh mi sandwiches rendered as sliders. In the CBD, a former convenience store, long-shuttered after a fire, is slated to open this week as Viet Orleans Bistro (300 Baronne St., 504333-6917). In what seems like a smart accommodation for the neighborhood, the menu includes party platters of spring rolls, egg rolls and other appetizers for catering. And in Old Metairie, Rolls N Bowls (605 Metairie Road, Metairie, 504-3090519; www.facebook.com/rollsandbowls), is now open. The menu includes the usual pho, bun and banh mi and adds a few more vegetarian options than usual, plus bubble teas.

To dough list The name of the new boutique bakery P’s and Q’s (5720 Magazine St., 504897-5131; www.piesandquiches.com) stands for pies and quiches, though your nose could probably decode the specialties here quickly. Walk into this tiny storefront and the aroma of buttery dough tells the tale. New Orleans native Betsy Foster Matthews prepares a half-dozen or so types of savory and sweet pies each day. Most are available in palm-size single servings, with larger sizes for the table. A vegan Indian curry pot pie, a spicy, open-topped crawfish pie and a quiche with ham, Swiss and caramelized onions showed the savory range on one recent visit. Key lime and Louisiana strawberry pies had to contend with competition from an Elvis pie in the sweet column. That last one had a chocolate crust and peanut butter and banana filling topped with crumbled bacon, which might have been excessive if it weren’t a tribute to the King. P’s and Q’s is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Trends, notes, quirks and quotes from the world of food. “One step up (from burger joints) are places with better ambience and perhaps better ingredients — Shake Shack, Five Guys, Starbucks, Pret a Manger — that also peddle unhealthful food but succeed in making diners feel better about eating it, either because it tastes better, is surrounded by some healthful options, the setting is groovier or they use some organic or sustainable ingredients. This is the Nouveau Junk sector.” — Mark Bittman, dissecting his own categories for fast food in a New York Times Magazine piece arguing for healthier options for meals on the go.

Nightcap Evening concerts to hit after Jazz Fest. By Alex Woodward

T

he New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival brings a huge musical lineup to the Fair Grounds, and it also helps attract a full schedule of evening concerts. Here is a list of notable concerts at venues around town. YO LA TENGO With January’s Fade (Matador), the long-running New Jersey indie rock trio Yo La Tengo entered its fourth decade with a gorgeous 13th studio album. The band continues a streak of fuzzy, bouncy and 1960sinspired astro-pop, with singer Ira Kaplan’s melodic ears steering the band out of saccharine and into something deeply sweet. The band is at Tipitina’s 10 p.m. Wednesday (501 Napoleon Ave., 504-895-8477; www.tipitinas.com. Tickets $15).

THE PLUS ONE SHOW This monthly Hi-Ho Lounge show offers upcoming local artists a unique spin on a songwriter showcase format. Each artist performs five songs — but with each song, another musician joins the stage, ending each set with a full-band performance. At the show’s end, each performer and his or her “band” all join on stage for a massive finale. This Thursday edition features Erika Flowers, Anthony Cuccia, Kyle June Williams and Jon Arceneaux (Hi-Ho Lounge, 2239 St. Claude Ave., 504-945-4446; www.hiholounge.net. Tickets $5). DEBAUCHE The rowdy gypsy punk outfit led by Ukraine-born Yegor Romantsov describes itself as a “Russian mafia band.” It’s a fitting title for a band of hooligans blasting criminal folk tales and outlaw mother country-punk on its album Cossaks on Prozac and at regular gigs across town. While power was out one night along St. Claude Avenue last month, Debauche continued its explosive performance in the dark inside Hi-Ho Lounge. A couple of weeks later, the band dressed up to receive the 2013 Big Easy Music Award for Best World Music.

BLACK JOE LEWIS & THE HONEY BEARS These Austin, Texas throwback rhythm and bluesmen hold a two-night late-night residence at One Eyed Jacks during Jazz Fest. The band’s albums on Lost Highway Records, most recently 2011’s appropriately titled Scandalous, ride full-throttle through brow-sweating James Brown soul, R-rated Delta blues and Detroit rock ’n’ roll. Whatever you don’t sweat on the Fair Grounds will likely be mopped off the floor at these night owl benders. The late-night shows start at 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday at One Eyed Jacks (615 Toulouse St., 504-569-8361; www.oneeyedjacks.net. Tickets $25). 1913-2013 ORCHESTRA Bassist, composer and eclectic experimenter James Singleton leads his 1913-2013 Orchestra through an improvisational set exploring New Orleans music across a century. Joining the symphony are trumpeter Satoru Ohashi, saxophonist Rex Gregory, drummer Justin Peake, trombonist Rick Trolsen and guitarist Chris Alford. The orchestra performs at Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Arts Center 7 p.m. Friday (1618 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., 504-827-5858; www.zeitgeistinc.net. Tickets $15 general admission, $10 Zeitgeist members). LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS On 2012’s Faithful Man, 62-year-old Lee Fields steps out of time — a quick flash of brass and Fields’ wails and hand-to-God pleas on the title track recall Stax records and vintage Southern soul. Fields has performed for more than 40 years, but his recent rebirth has spawned some of the freshest rhythm and blues of his career. His love-lost torch songs (“I’m Still Hanging On,” “Wish You Were Here”), delivered with his powerhouse voice, cut deep with the kind of mighty sting of a world-weary unsung hero. Fields performs at One Eyed Jacks 8 p.m. Saturday, (615 Toulouse St., 504569-8361; www.oneeyedjacks.net. Tickets $25.)

GEORGE CLINTON & Lee Fields & the Expressions PARLIAMENT FUNKADELperform at One Eyed Jacks. IC WITH DJ SOUL SISTER The legendary, sprawling funk collective and its figurehead George Clinton converge under one roof, which may or not be torn off. Parliament has toured on and off in any number of combinations of its members for decades. The collective recently lost pioneering bassist Cordell “Boogie” Mosson, whose melodic, whistleable bass riffs were featured on landmark albums like 1975’s Mothership Connection and 1978’s One Nation Under a Groove alongside fellow bassist Bootsy Collins. The 71-year-old bandleader and Parliamentary mastermind Clinton, who is seeking donations for Mosson’s funeral, has no intentions of slowing down. P-funk superfan and funk’s human encyclopedia DJ Soul Sister opens the show at 9 p.m. Sunday at House of Blues (225 Decatur St., 504-310-4999; www.houseofblues.com. Tickets $40.) LIVING COLOUR Hard rock pioneer Living Colour will perform its landmark debut album Vivid in its entirety at this 25th anniversary party for its release. The 1988 album — best known for opening cut and massive hit single “Cult of Personality” and Vernon Reid’s spitfire, dive-bombing guitar solos and earworm riffs — went double platinum and won a 1989 Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance. Donald Harrison Jr., Joseph “Zigaboo” Modeliste, Galactic’s Stanton Moore and Rob Mercurio and several other special guests join the band at 10 p.m. Sunday at The Howlin’ Wolf (907 S. Peters St., 504529-5844; www.thehowlinwolf.com. Tickets $30).

LONESOME LEASH Multi-instrumentalist Walt McClements has had an octopus-like grasp on several gigs, from Why Are We Building Such A Big Ship? bandleader to an in-demand addition to projects like the Panorama Jazz Band and Bywater’s Music Box installation. In January, he released his debut as Lonesome Leash, I Am No Captain. With Lonesome Leash, McClements crafts a one-man ensemble gathering from anthemic and minor-key cabaret accordion and brass, beating along to minimal percussion and confessional lyrics. Catch him 10 p.m. Thursday at AllWays Lounge & Theatre (2240 St. Claude Ave., 504-218-5778; www.theallwayslounge.net).

Debauche is at Circle Bar 10 p.m. Friday (1032 St. Charles Ave., 504-588-2616; www.circlebarneworleans.com).

MuSIC LISTINGS rEVIEW Marnie Stern and Black Francis The website for the performance space at the Old U.S. Mint, www. musicatthemint.org, greets visitors with a declarative sentence by Louis Armstrong: “To jazz, or not to jazz, there is no question!” There is one question: What in Crackity Jones are Marnie Stern and Charles Thompson (pictured) — she the metal-guitar banshee, indie rock’s reigning lord of the fretboard; he Frank Black Francis, the Spanish-spewing, mutilation-waving Pixie who started it all — doing on a Louisiana State Museum concert lineup? The answer involves a Marnie Stern kinship between a producMay tion engineer and a talent 8:30 p.m. Saturday buyer, some calendar kismet Black Francis and yet another question. 8:30 p.m. Sunday The engineer is the Mint’s Danny Kadar, whose credits include Band The Old U.S. Mint of Horses, Grizzly Bear and My 400 Esplanade Ave. Morning Jacket. The talent buyer is Jason Songe, who fielded an offer (504) 568-6993 from Kadar after the latter attended www.musicatthemint.org rock shows earlier this year by the Whigs and Floating Action, two bands Songe had booked at the Circle Bar. The second question: What could you do with the most state-of-the-art music studio in New Orleans? That answer will come Saturday, when Stern plugs her Fender Telecaster into the Mint’s third-floor, 48-channel Meyer Sound system and conjures Eddie Van Halen for the solo that opens “Nothing is Easy,” from her new album The Chronicles of Marnia (Kill Rock Stars). The next day, Charles Thompson — not the famed jazz pianist, but the former Teenager of the Year who wrote “Here Comes Your Man” as a high-school sophomore — settles in for Sunday service, counting five-six-seven on Cinco de Mayo. Habitat opens for Marnie Stern Saturday. Tickets $12. Reid Paley and Kim Shattuck open for Black Francis Sunday. Tickets $25. — NOAH BONAPARTE PAIS

REVIEW

The Company You Keep It’s easy to understand Robert Redford’s attraction to the material and worldview in Neil Gordon’s The Company You Keep, the 2003 novel on which director Redford’s movie is based. The book fictionalizes the later lives of members of 1960s and ’70s radical revolutionary group Weather Underground, imaging what might happen to them if their assumed identities were finally exposed after they spent 30 years hiding in plain sight. Redford is known for The Company You Keep (R) his progressive politics, and bringDirected by Robert Redford ing Gordon’s book to the big screen affords him the chance to revisit a Starring Robert Redford, misunderstood era and re-examine the Shia LaBeouf, Susan Sapassions that led to violence in the name randon, Julie Christie and of social justice. It’s harder to imagine Nick Nolte why Redford would bother to make an uninspired movie on the subject. Wide release Though its subject matter is obviously close to Redford’s heart, The Company You Keep is sleepy and unconvincing. And at 76, Redford seems too old for the lead role of a former late-’60s radical. At least his friends are well cast: It’s a pleasure to see Susan Sarandon, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper, Julie Christie, Stanley Tucci and others sharing Redford’s attraction to the story and shining in their moments on screen. The best lines are reserved for Redford’s character as he repeatedly chastises the young reporter (Shia LaBeouf), who exposes him, for not understanding the crucial role of the press in revealing difficult truths. That’s a message that bears repeating, but it’s not enough to support a two-hour film. — KEN KORMAN

Firmly rooted in the Southern literary tradition of writers from Mark Twain to mystery novelist James Lee Burke, Mud is the engaging and atmospheric third feature from writer/director Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter). With its story of two teenage boys who discover a mysterious drifter named Mud (Matthew McConaughey) hiding on a remote island on the Mississippi River, the film far exceeds what usually passes for a coming-ofage story in Hollywood. Mud offers a soulful meditation on the nature of love disguised as Mud (PG-13) a Southern Gothic crime thriller, all told Directed by Jeff Nichols from a distinctly male point of view. A mythic quality carries it through the rough Starring Matthew McCospots even when it turns out to be a bit naughey, Reese Withermore conventional (and long-winded) spoon, Sam Shepard and than it might have been. Tye Sheridan Nichols, an Arkansas native, mounted the first large-scale film production in that Wide release state’s history, and the result is a setting that looks both fresh and familiar while supporting the story’s uniquely Southern vibe. It’s hard to imagine anyone but McConaughey in the title role, oozing earthiness and authenticity while using his low-key charisma to win over Ellis (Tye Sheridan), the smarter and more troubled of the two teens, and enlist the boys in his struggle to reconnect with the absent Juniper (Reese Witherspoon). Even Witherspoon is believable, a few extra pounds keeping her from looking like a movie star. Her careless character may not be the ideal object of devotion, but she does provide an object lesson on the true price of love. — KEN KORMAN

Anyone who enjoyed the odd documentary Sherman’s March will instantly recognize the narrator in Photographic Memory. In Sherman’s March, filmmaker Ross McElwee, ostensibly documenting Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman’s path of demolition in the Civil War, traveled across the South and asked former girlfriends why they broke up with him Photographic or why their relationships didn’t work. Often he APRIL Memory filmed these conversations until they became uncomfortable and the women asked him to turn off 7 p.m. Tuesday the camera. It’s the same McElwee years later, Contemporary this time filming his son Adrian, who has grown distant as he’s reached his early 20s. McElwee is a much more Arts Center mature and insightful narrator here, but occasionally one 900 Camp St. marvels at the way in which he kept his camera between (504) 528-3805 himself and his son throughout their lives. Some of the moments are brilliant, but it’s unexamined how Adrian felt about www.neworleansconstantly talking to the camera. filmsociety.org McElwee embarks on another self-indulgent trip, this time to France, where he spent a year in his early 20s. He searches for people he knew and places he visited, and reflects on the nature of photography and memory as well. He says he hopes to understand his son by remembering himself at the same age, but that seems like a convenient premise for another journey of personal exploration. His unreserved candor about his own feelings and shortcomings makes it an engrossing film, in spite of its humble revelations and regardless of how well he has his mission in perspective. — WILL COVIELLO

The Village Voice once complimented Canadian playwright Brad Fraser for “a grunge sensuality that could seduce a young audience to live theater.” The audience for Fraser’s Wolfboy on the night I saw it at the Mid-City Theatre was not particularly young, but they seemed to enjoy the drama — if enjoy can be applied to such a dark experience. The play takes place in an insane asylum. Fred Nuccio’s spare set showed two rooms separated by a brick wall but connected by a closed door. The only furniture was a single bed in each room. Strapped to the bed in one room lay David (Christopher Ramage). When approached by the nurse (Tracey Collins), he growled and snapped. He was the Wolfboy. In the next room, Bernie (Kyle Woods) lay on his bed. His wrists were bandaged from a suicide attempt. Bernie remained mostly silent and ignored his visitors — the nurse and his dad (Michael Harkins). The story’s naturalism was most evident in the language. “F—king” seemed to be the universal adjective. The pleasantly acerbic nurse blurted out, “Even Florence Nightingale wouldn’t put up with this shit.” The drama opens when Bernie passes through the door to visit the Wolfboy, who is strapped down and growls angrily at the intrusion. Bernie teases and torments him, calling him Toto (Dorothy’s dog in The Wizard of Oz) to belittle his ferocity. Wolfboy returns the visit and straps down Bernie while he’s asleep. David torments Bernie, whom he dubs Dorothy. The rest of the story shows the deepening friendship between the two inmates. They both refuse to talk to the psychiatrist but break down and confess to each other what caused them to snap. In David’s case, he raped a 12-year-old girl named Annie, and she hung herself in shame. Annie (Greta Zehner) haunts David in his room. Bernie also suffered a sexual transgression. His parents used to make him sleep in the same bed as a male cousin who demanded sexual favors. Bernie’s father visits and talks at length to the (offstage) psychiatrist, but he is unaware of his part in his son’s problems. With its twisted sex and lycanthropy, this world is too hellish for a happy ending. Sue Gonczy’s lighting and sound were spot-on. Director Fred Nuccio gathered a strong cast and elicited compelling performances in this difficult, disturbing piece. — DALT WONK

JOB GURU

Dear New Orleans Job Guru, â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a person progresses in his or her career and moves into management and perhaps senior management, is there a point in which it is no longer necessary (or appropriate) to include the entire work history in the resume? Thanks.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Donna D., Metairie, LA

Grant Cooper

RESTAURANT/HOTEL/BAR Miyako HIibachi & Sushi Bar

Dear Donna, Occasionally, clients tell me they heard that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You only have to go back 10 years on your rĂŠsumĂŠ.â&#x20AC;? I put that type of advice in the same category as other pronouncements made by well-meaning but uninformed â&#x20AC;&#x153;expertsâ&#x20AC;? who are not on the front lines of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job search battles. For a 35-40-year-old candidate to fail to document what he/she did for 5-10 years after leaving college would be a transgression few decision-makers would overlook in the interview selection process.

A recent client had a job history that was quite sketchy in her earlier years. She had worked in restaurant server positions at several major restaurants in New Orleans for years, then later went on to earn her bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree at U.N.O. and worked in the biomedical sales industry. She came to us because she was applying to a higher level regional management position in the biomedical sales field. We left her six years of restaurant work entirely off of her rĂŠsumĂŠ and began it with her first job after graduating. Since the graduation date and her first biomed job matched up, the six years was unnecessary, making her appear to be a younger candidate. She landed the job.

One of the techniques we use here at Strategic RĂŠsumĂŠs is to create a section immediately following the main job description area entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Previous Positionsâ&#x20AC;? that simply lists the older, less relevant jobs. In this way, the jobs are documented so that decision-makers can see how your career progressed without devoting too much space or attention to positions in the more distant past. Of course, there are cases in which older jobs are entirely relevant, as in the case of those hoping to change career directions back to something they did in earlier years, or where the job announcement specifically requests skills gained earlier in oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career. Also, those who are evaluating your rĂŠsumĂŠ may wish to see that you â&#x20AC;&#x153;worked your way upâ&#x20AC;? and are predisposed to look favorably upon careers that show a consistent upward trajectory. Here are a few simple guidelines to decide how far back to go and which jobs to keep on your rĂŠsumĂŠ: t If you have â&#x20AC;&#x153;gapsâ&#x20AC;? that would appear in your job history by excluding some older positions, leave them in, or simply list them with no job descriptions. t If the older positions were at prestigious companies or demonstrated that you have a well-rounded skill set, leave them in. t LIf the older positions are obviously irrelevant, too lightweight, or age you too much, feel free to leave them off as long as it does not create a gap in employment after your graduation date. New Orleans Job Guru is New Orleans native Grant Cooper. President of Strategic RĂŠsumĂŠsÂŽ, Grant ranks within the top LinkedIn RĂŠsumĂŠ Writing Experts nationwide and has assisted the U.S. Air Force, Kinkoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the Louisiana Dept. of Labor, the City of New Orleans, NFL/NBA players & coaches, as well as universities, regional banks, celebrities, and major corporations.

The basic answer to your question, Donna, is that it entirely depends on the situation at hand. For example, whether you include your entire work history on your rĂŠsumĂŠ would depend in large measure on the job you are applying for, the nature of the jobs you held earlier in your career, and how old you are.
