I’m really late in announcing the release of this album, but that doesn’t make me any less excited about it! Over the summer, while Jeremiah Lockwood was back in town from the West Coast Laila & Smitty released their second album at Barbes in Brooklyn. We don’t get too play too much these days, but when we do it makes it extra special, which was certainly true of this Barbes show. We played the album top to bottom, but if you missed it (or even if you were there and just want to hear the album!) you can check it out here. All of this was conceived and made real by Kenny Warren, who is just the man for his time and place.
Laila & Smitty is Kenny Warren-trumpet, vocals, compositions; Jeremiah Lockwood-guitars; Myk Freedman-lap steel; AH-bass; Carlo Costa-drums; Ilusha Tsinadze-guitar.
