Frenchmen on Penn - Water Seed
Music Night on Jupiter and the Pittsburgh Winery are proud to present "Frenchmen on Penn" an ongoing series featuring some of the finest musicians and acts New Orleans has to offer.
What do you call a musical gumbo that recalls the ancestral strut and joie de vivre of the New Orleans’ Tremé, the drama and ecstasy of the church’s wailing floor, and the suited-up sophistication of jazz threaded with the party funk of Parliament? What do you name sounds that hail from Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean, and the red dirt South all at once? How do you label music that simultaneously evokes all of the uncontainable energies and passions exploding from so many disparate musical legacies? Here we call it Water Seed.
