Oaktown > NOLA


The Hammond B3 organ enthralls with its liquid swoops and soulful vibrato and gospel overtones. Wil Blades is carrying the torch of this bold instrument into the next generation. Together with famed New Orleans saxophonist Donald Harrison, acclaimed drummer Mike Clark and legendary Bay Area vocalist and bandleader Linda Tillery, Blades has put together Oaktown > NOLA, a musical collaboration celebrating the sounds of two of America’s most musical cities: Oakland and New Orleans.
