A bittersweet moment. This is the last song from the last performance by Trampled Under Foot on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise #23. So glad I got to see them before the end, but there was open hostility between the siblings during this show, with Danielle refusing to introduce Nick's solos songs and storming off the stage. I think she wanted them to do only TUF songs and not have Nick repeat his solo work for the fourth time during the cruise. I have to agree with Danielle, this performance should have been about TUF and not Nick. Still, what a voice on this woman. My god!

Fredericks Brown opened for Taj Mahal on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise, the Fredericks half of the duo being Deva (Mahal) Fredericks, Taj's daughter. This is a really great song by them.

One of the highlights of the cruise has been the Lowrider Band, or as we all remember them, War. There were seven original members of War. Two have died. Of the five still with us, one of them is touring as War, the other four (Harold Brown, Lee Oskar, B.B. Dickerson and Howard Scott) are in the Lowrider Band and they sound just as great today as they did in the 1970s..

A long snippet of Ronnie Baker Brooks from the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise #23 that I took out on the Pool Deck of the Norwegian Sun. We became Ronnie fans on this cruise.
