Don Crenshaw is the Miles Davis figure on the scene in Shreveport. Possessed of a melodic and rhythmic style and thick tone, Crenshaw, aka Dirty Redd, sits in with numerous bands. There's no telling the jazzy or bluesy group in which you will see him. One thing is certain about the stylish Redd: he is a possessed player and he Will be performing.

At the Highland Fest in Columbia Park expect to see him with Professor Porkchop (Chris McCaa). But you may see him with Stanton Dossett's Jr III, or, who knows, with Dirtfoot. Having deep ears and mondo bondo, Redd seems to be able to fit himself to the musical needs of almost any group.

"Dirty Redd and Company will be performing at a rap up party for the Highland Blues Festival at the Holiday Inn Downtown, 102 Lake Street, Sat, Nov 18, from 8:00 pm to 12:00 midnight," says lounge manager Harmony Moore.

Harmony's at 318-573-2430.

I adore Dirty Red. It may be time to finally stop by the Holiday Inn.

Jane, your pithy comments are welcome here! You probably have your own blog; how do we visit?

Hmm, I think my name link is working...

(I had to look up pithy. I knew it meant "concise," but it rolls off the tongue like an insult.)

The Highland Blues and Jazz Fest was an excellent time. The weather was blissful, and until Manny launched our toddler off the merry-go-round, we were having a wonderous afternoon. I believe we got a few artsy (read: low-res and blurry) shots of Redd. Fantastic.

P.S. Don't bother checking out MY blog yet... nothing "pithy" about it, as Jane-Dough could attest.

Amy, your photos on your myspace site are excellent! Thanks for your festival update. So Manny launched your - his - toddler from the whirling merry-go-round.
I'm sure there was a good reason for it.

Jane, the article you wrote for the Times on the advent of the West Edge Co-op was smooth but detailed and vibey. Neat-o.
