Growing up in Memphis, TN. where I learned to talk the jive. I was lucky to watch Luther and Cody Dickinson come of age musically right before my eyes. In the early years of the North Mississippi All Stars before thier dad passed away, music and Memphis legend Jim Dickinson. The majority of the hometown shows( N.Y.E was always special) meant that pops would be sitting in among other musical royalty. He died in the beginning of his sons' fame but with those two musical prodigies notoriety and fame was never in doubt.
His brother Luther Dickinson played with the Black Crows and has recorded a few solo records himself also happens to be one of many guests on his brothers' debut album, Leeway for the Freeway.
The record was produced by his mother Mary Lindsay Dickinson and the LP is released through his own Diamond D Records and is available starting today for purchase on iTunes and other select outlets.
I think alot of music lovers will be pleastly surprised with the inviting sound of Luther's debut album. It's a little more mainstream or dare I say radio friendly than his brothers or thier work as The North Mississippi All-Stars. Please do not get mistaken the title track has his brother and Duane Betts sitting in, so it's still very much rooted in the Delta Blues. Besides Duane Betts and his big brother, Cody also has the privilege of the talents of John Medeski on the rousing track Stranger. Robert Randolph lends his unmistakable sound to the uplifting catchy track Wing and a Prayer.
