From Dave Sag on the Rhumb Line’s Thursday Night Blues Party
“Got a special show for y’all this week as I drag my dearest friend, John Rankin, out of the slickery swamp of Louisiana and wring him dry on Fred’s font of perpetual resurrection: the Rhumb Line. Educator, performer, vocalist, citizen, weekend father, this guy can do it all, and at the same time, too. He’ll be digging deep into that good ol’ Nawlins pile of steaming R&B, and throwin’ in a coupla originals to boot. You gotta hear this.
Behind him, pushing the beat will be our old buddy, Forrest “gump” Padgett on heart attack drums, Paul Ahlstrand on tenor twelve sax, and yers trooly on base. C’mon down and tell John how much you like my punctuation!”
