Bob Weir will appear on Leslie Mendelson s new album Love and Murder. Get all the 411
 

      Leslie Mendelson's talents first appeared on my radar when I first saw her in K I M O C K. Her voice is sultry and reminds of the female Jazz musicians of a time long ago. Jambase announced to day that Bob Weir will be a guest on her new solo album where their   version of "Blue Bayou". 


 Bob Weir was invited to take part for the cover of “Blue Bayou.” Leslie  Mendelson explained the recording process:

The collaboration came about the week that Dead & Company started rehearsing at TRI. I had been working there a lot over that period and they made me an Artist in Residence. While Dead & Co. was wrapping up I was hanging out in my studio and just messing around with the old Roy Orbison song, “Blue Bayou.” I sang it for AJ [Santella], who is Bob’s guitar tech, and he said that was one of his favorite songs. Shortly after, Bob came in and sat down. He loved it and suggested that we record it in the main studio. We took our guitars, set up a couple mics and sang it live. I love the spontaneity of the track. I’m glad it found a home on my record.
