Chooglin' leader Brian Vanderwerf opens ears, mouths off

 

Waylon Jennings, "Waymore's Blues," from Dreaming My Dreams

Vanderwerf: Well, of course this is genius [plays along on acoustic guitar].

CP: Have you been into him for a long time?

Vanderwerf: I'd say in the last six years I've really gotten into him. When I was a kid I kind of loathed all that stuff. I saw him, not the last time he played here, but the time before. He couldn't walk, but he still sang 45 minutes, sitting down. He did "Things Have Changed" by Bob Dylan.

 

The Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet, "Anyhow," from The Gospel Sound (Columbia)

Vanderwerf: I love gospel music. That's another thing I've gotten into more recently. You can hear some Elvis in there. I love the way these records sound--the drum sounds like a drum, the voices sound like voices. And it's just guys standing around one mic--and nailing it.
