Here’s the New Orleans Jazz Fest Song of the Day for Tuesday
This year's New Orleans Jazz Fest features a great line-up of Classic Hits artists that you hear on the Lake. You'll have a chance to see Elton John, Steve Winwood, Chicago, the Who and Jimmy Buffett and that doesn't include some of the great, legendary artist from Louisiana like Irma Thomas.
Today, we're going to spotlight Steve Winwood with our Jazz Fest song of the day, but it's not one of Winwood's many solo hits. Back in his early days, Steve Winwood was the keyboard player and lead vocalist for The Spencer Davis Group and they're best known for their 1967 hit called "Gimme Some Lovin."
Each day, we'll play the New Orleans Jazz Fest "song of the Day. When you hear it, just be the 9th caller at 436-9929 and you'll win tickets to the new Orleans Jazz Fest to see the artist of your choice.
Steve Winwood as about 17 when this song was recorded, but his vocals sound like a man much older. Here's a great live performance of today's Jazz Fest Song of the Day.
