Last week I enjoyed the rare pleasure of seeing Cody ChesnuTT in concert, at Asheville’s Grey Eagle. A few weeks ago, when the opportunity to interview him in advance of the Asheville date presented itself, I found myself unable to do the interview, owing to a schedule conflict. Luckily, my daughter Annelise (also a writer and occasional contributor to the blog, plus a fan of the man’s work) ably took the reins and conducted the interview herself. Her feature will run here soon.
So as not to step on Annelise’s work, I won’t post my thoughts on the show…beyond noting that it was amazing. What I will do, however, is share some photos from the evening. All photos by me and/or Audrey Hermon. Watch for the feature, coming soon to the Musoscribe blogzine.
With a background in marketing and advertising, Bill Kopp got his professional start writing for Trouser Press. After a stint as Editor-in-chief for a national music magazine, Bill launched Musoscribe in 2009, and has published new content every business day since then (and every single day since 2018). The interviews, essays, and reviews on Musoscribe reflect Bill's keen interest in American musical forms, most notably rock, jazz, and soul. His work features a special emphasis on reissues and vinyl. Bill's work also appears in many other outlets both online and in print. He also researches and authors liner notes for album reissues -- more than 30 to date -- and co-produced a reissue of jazz legend Julian "Cannonball" Adderley's final album. His first book, Reinventing Pink Floyd was published by Rowman & Littlefield in 2018, and in paperback in 2019. His second book, Disturbing the Peace: 415 Records and the Rise of New Wave, will be published in 2021 by HoZac Books.
