My wife and I had the pleasure of seeing Anders for the first time in Minneapolis last night.

We were both at work, and had JamOn on the radio and heard a song off his new record called Black Tar and both texted each other at the same time about how much we dug it. Went to his site and saw an upcoming date here.
Holy smokes does this guy ROCK. Played a 2 hour set as a three piece band. Among his own stuff, he played Masterpiece, Ohio, Walk on Gilded Splinters, and closed with Franklin's Tower.
We were both just blown away by the guy and his talent. The guy is a player for sure. He just crushed the guitar all night. Cannot wait to see him again.
We are going to Island Exodus in Negril next January and he is opening for the Mule all four nights.

Just thought I would share. It is so fun to discover new stuff.

could not agree more.......love this guy.

go listen to his album Live at Tipitina's.........the opening cut is Oh Mama > outta sight good arrangement.

would never expect him to play covers........he must like doing it becuase he can play anything.

he'd be a great match with Derek playing with him.

Anders is great. I've seen him a few times over the last 7 or 8 years. He's always been a great talent, but he's in a much better state these days.

You know he can sing and play guitar. One thing that would surprise you, if your only experience with Anders is the live power trio, is how versatile he is, and what a great songwriter he is. By all means, pick up the newer cds on Alligator, but also track down a copy of Ash Wednesday Blues. IMHO, it's his best album. If you download live shows, there are plenty available.

Love him. Which Way to Here has always been my personal favorite. Living Room is nice, too.

He's only been to Bham once that I'm aware of, but it was very unique seeing a power trio with guitar drums and a tuba, or I think to be more accurate, a sousaphone.

Here's a cool video where he loses power and just wings it, till the power comes back on, like the Mule two cities DVD.

He just played here a 2 days ago. Unfortunately I couldn't make it. Glad to see someone bring up his name. I've never seen him live, hope he comes back thru here soon. He has gotten a lot of positive coverage from Blues Revue mag over the years.

Here's a beautiful song Anders did with Mike Zito (Royal Southern Brotherhood) that I posted in the Sober thread a while back. Just beautiful....

I haven't heard the track yet, but you know what's it's about, right?

Anders has been great for a long time. I first caught him playing a free show in Milwaukee, of all places, back in like '96 or '97. He had Theresa Andersson with him that night who I think was his wife at the time and was one of the most beautiful women I had ever seen. Lost track of him for a while but caught up with him on his last Alligator CD which had that Charlie Parker song on it which just kicks ass. Finally saw him again in Charlotte at the Double Door a couple of years ago and it was good seeing him again. He is one of the most unorthodox and original slide players I've ever seen/heard - he doesn't sound like anyone else.

He was on tour with Karl Denson earlier this year and when Karl and the Tiny Universe did Sticky Fingers start to finish, they would bring Anders out for most if not all of the songs. There are a lot of those shows (both KDTU and Anders) up on btetree.

I also downloaded a show he did at Tipitina's with Luther Dickinson. Nice.

That is a good one, Shawn. In fact, all of his CDs are great, and they are all very different. He definitely doesn't revert to formula from CD to CD.

I saw that tour about a year ago @ Moe's Alley in Santa Cruz. Osborne came out and did a smoking 45 minute set with his trio first. Then he played with Karl Denson for his entire set, which included the complete Stones' Sticky Fingers record. I want to tell you, they about blew the damn walls off of the place. Denson on sax along with another horn player in his band (trombone if I remember)........of course there are a LOT of horns on Sticky Fingers..........they just ripped that material in half.........tremendous versions of those songs. Denson and Osborne pretty much alternated lead vocals for Sticky Fingers.

Seth ("sheep" on this site) is a huge Anders Osborne freak and he's the one who got me into him. I'm glad he did.

Anders produced Mike Zito's last CD, Greyhound, which Anders also plays on and it is fantastic. The title tune is one of the best songs I have heard in years.

if you have not discovered Mike Zito yet, GET ON THE BUS. I've been a fan of his for about 5 years or so, since I saw him open for Sonny Landreth in Charlotte. The guy has literally come through the fire and his music has a weight and depth aa a result of his experiences that makes most stuff sound like bubblegum. He is a WICKED guitar player, too - at times he can sound like SRV but he has his own sound and style. Great player, singer and writer - I just downloaded the Royal Southern Brotherhood show from the Louisiana Music Factory and it is fantastic. Zito and Devon are a formidable team and they sound great together, and of course Yonrico and Cyril Neville just make it that much better.

Here's hoping they hit it bigtime and I can't wait to see them.

You're lucky you got to see one of those shows, Rob. I missed the tour, but I can still hear it....

Anders is yet another example of the depth of talent in the New Orleans music scene, and I am so glad he got his demons under control. He is starting to make a name for himself outside of NOLA, and God knows his talent deserves it.

brofan, Anders and Theresa were together for a while, not sure if they were ever married. Theresa is pretty talented in her own right, and yes,, she is nice to look at

Here is a clip of Anders, Karl Denson, and Warren doing Spanish Moon from this past Jazz Fest....

Not the best audio or video quality, but you get the point. The man can play!

I do. I was looking forward to him playing it. he did not, but that is fine. I thought the opener was going into it. Not being very familiar with his own stuff much, I don't know what the song was, but my face melted of and right on to the floor.

Cannot wait to see him in Negril. I so wish I could go to SummerCamp this weekend. Going to Bella at Harmony Park in MN, but SCamp has such an amazing lineup, including Anders.
