Cruisin’ with George Porter Jr.
As previously reported, George Porter Jr. and the rest of the funky Meters will board Jam Cruise on January 4 for a series of shows and, we’re willing to bet, other collaborations. A few days later Porter will also spend some time on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise. The busy bassist will perform on the latter cruise with the Voice of the Wetlands All Stars, which features Cyril Neville, Anders Osborne and Jumpin Johnny Sansone, among others. The cruise sets sail from Ft. Lauderdale, FL on January 13 and returns to shore seven days later. Before then, Porter will plat a trip set with June Yamagishi and Johnny Vidacovich at New Orleans’ Maple Leaf tomorrow.
