Georgia Playlist: Deantoni Parks and Nelson Patton
We bended our Georgia Playlist rules this week. Normally, we ask musicians and bands to pick two songs by Georgia born or based artists. For Friday's show, we have three. Nelson Patton features Dave Nelson on looping trombone and Marlon Patton on drums and moog bass pedals. The experimental duo's debut album, "Along The Way," is out now and they will perform with Deantoni Parks at The Bakery in Atlanta on Monday, Jan. 21.
Deantoni Parks is an experimental drummer, songwriter and actor raised in Newnan. Parks is now based in New York. We avoided a stand-off between the three by allowing each one pick for the Georgia playlist.
Deantoni Parks chose "Save Their Souls" by Hamilton Bohannon.
Dave Nelson chose "What Do You Mean" by Vic Chestnutt.
Marlon picked "Cold Sweat/Ride The Pony" by James Brown.
