RIP Willie Tee

A New Orleans institution is gone as keyboardist/producer/songwriter Willie Tee has died. Very sad news indeed. I saw him perform this past March in Austin at South By Southwest as part of the Ponderosa Stomp. He did a set and then sat in as part of the house band. It was such a delight- he was still so vibrant and into the music.The first two Wild Magnolias albums were just reissued recently (under the title They Call Us Wild) and they serve as a great memorial to his work. We'll miss you, Mr. T.
