Johnny Iguana album. Claudettes album. All of it.
Hello, old friend. Much has happened! Johnny Iguana has a new album coming out on the legendary DELMARK RECORDS in August 2020. It’s (aptly) called “JOHNNY IGUANA’S CHICAGO SPECTACULAR!” and features Lil’ Ed, John Primer, Billy Boy Arnold, Matthew Skoller, Phillip-Michael Scales, Billy Flynn, Kenny Smith, Bill Dickens and Michael Caskey. “Whoa!” is right! And wait’ll you hear this thing, recorded on an exactly 100-year-old Chicago-made upright piano by the Cable Piano Company. It’s a tribute to the greats of Chicago blue piano, but has a healthy dose of my original compositions and eccentricities, should I say.
My band the Claudettes released our new album “High Times in the Dark” on Forty Below Records on April 3, 2020. Ted Hutt (Violent Femmes, Lucero, Old Crow Medicine Show, The Devil Makes Three…) produced this, and it’s a thing of beauty, I gotta say. Lots of press and new videos are here; Follow the Claudettes on Spotify and get the album at the Forty Below Records site or Bandcamp.
All right, keep in touch via johnny (at) johnny iguana dot com. ’til then…
