Terrif mult-genre singer and music-maker. Dead since '09 but his legacy lives on--he was a bedrock in New Orleans since the '60's (his first was in '53 [sideman]; didn't hit his stride 'til '58-'60--the Imperial then Black Top sides). Few CDs and he didn't concertize much--the consummate sideman/music director on the QT. His Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snooks_Eaglin As often happens, I was triggered by Ron Weinstock's blog: http://inabluemood.blogspot.com/2013...day-2-289.html
Oh yeah, his nickname? He was reputed to know 2500 songs inside and out...and never gave out with a setlist, not even to the band--flexibility and deep song knowledge's the key here if you side with him.
