“Riviera Paradise” – Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble

“Riviera Paradise” – Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble – Screener Version

This one is close to home for me in many ways.  I lived most of my life in Austin, Texas, where SRV was kind of an adopted son, and Auditorium Shores a personal favorite place for concerts and buzzing joggers with my radio controlled airplanes.  “Riviera Paradise” remains my very favorite SRV & DT piece.  Featuring the talents of the entire band in a way perfect for Austin in the moonlight, (and the moon-tower light)  “Riviera Paradise” is a love letter to the city whose music scene they helped to shape.  Framing this piece is the poster art for this “Rites of Spring” concert by my friend Nels Jacobson – a.k.a. jagmo. (printing by Terry Raines)  Their creations spanning decades are featured in “The Art of Rock” and “The Art of Modern Rock.”   Musical and artistic vision come together on ‘The Third Coast.’  If you don’t know Austin, Texas, this is a very good place to start.  And if you do – welcome home…
