Dave Jordan’s vinyl release party is at the Maple Leaf Saturday night, 2/2

Local singer, guitarist and songwriter Dave Jordan is getting a lot of props for his latest album, Burning Sage. Yours truly reviewed it in December issue of OffBeat magazine writing, “Dave Jordan has crafted a great album; perhaps the best of his long career as one of New Orleans’ foremost roots-rockers.” You can read the full review here. He will celebrate the vinyl release on Saturday night at the Maple Leaf Bar.

The editors of OffBeat also selected the album as one of the Top 40 of the year. He is up for two awards at the Best of the Beat on Thursday night, and is also playing as a trio at the Ogden Museum this evening, 1/30.

The show at the Leaf, which is also Jordan’s annual birthday celebration, will feature a seven-piece band including Alex Mallet on guitar, Rurik Nunan on violin, Will Repholz on bass, David Shirley on drums, and Jeff Watkins and Sage Rouge on saxes. This is the core group of musicians that appear on the album.

If you haven’t seen the band lately, they are on fire. A recent performance at the Oak Street Po Boy Fest connected all the dots on everything fans like from a live performance. The show was energetic, with great musicianship all around. The band looked to be having as much fun as the audience, which was dancing and devouring the music as quickly as it was served up.

Show time is 10 PM.
