For Sunday: Leon Redbone sings “Mister Jelly Roll Baker”

I first saw (and heard) Leon Redbone on “Saturday Night Live” in the 1970s. I loved him devoutly upon first hearing him, and listened to his first two albums over and over again.

 

 

This song, from “Double Time” (his second album), is a great introduction to his style.

 

 

 

Enjoy.

    Perfect for a Sunday Loren. Love that laid back sound. It reminds me of Knoxville, Tennessee on a hot, lazy weekend.
