Remembering Cosimo Matassa & Joe Sample & Birthday Salutes To C.J. Chenier & Koko Taylor

September 26/28

Lots of action this week at the Crossroads with:

More music for the September Latin Soul/Spanish Blues feature, including music from Argentina’s La Mississippi

Tributes to New Orleans studio legend Cosimo Matassa, and Jazz Crusader Joe Sample who recently passed away

A tip of the hat to Americana Music Awards Lifetime Achievement recipient Taj Mahal

Birthday salutes to zydeco star C.J. Chenier and Queen of the Blues Koko Taylor

Music from artists with concerts in the coming week

And new releases, including the half-century delayed album from Sam Cooke’s younger brother, L.C. Cooke.
