Not content to sit on the legacy they so passionately protect, Louis Prima Jr. and the Witnesses (louisprimajr.com) are bringing Prima music into the 21st century. Less concerned about reliving the past than about creating a future for it, #TeamPrima bring new energy and a current attitude to the masses with The Wildest Show this side of the 1960s. The Band's sophomore release Blow is a collection of music as eclectic and unique as each member of this powerhouse band. Building off of the success of their critically acclaimed debut CD Return of the Wildest!, the band has brought together many years of diverse musical tastes into their second offering. From the first thunderous stomps of the title track, it is evident that this isn't your daddy's swing music, but a raucous roller coaster ride of tail-shakin', foot-stampin', horn-driven smiles.
If you were not doing music, you would be...
Wandering aimlessly through the street... or cooking Italian food.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
That I can mention? I love to cook. I cooked in an Italian restaurant when I was 15. I am a gym rat. I have guilt if I don't work out every day.
Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
This offering was a collaborative effort of my band and I. The moments and stories become just a long list of 'family fun,' so to speak. That said, one of the greatest experiences of my life was being able to sing and play trumpet with my father, in the same room he stood about 50 years earlier.
'That's My Home' is kind of a send off as we move into the future with our own music. Being able to watch the band play to my father's vocals was amazing, many tears were shed. The real emotions came when the final product was mixed, as I now have a regret in my life. That my mother did not get to hear the song. She passed away shortly after the recording was complete. I think she would have loved this, and the whole album.
That was heavy and beautiful. Please finish this sentence: Louis Prima Jr. is the artist that...
...will BLOW you away!!!
Did you dig LPJ as much as we do?
