I'm launching two new pages on the website today. First up, a conversation with Brian Blade, who plays drums on Joni's new album Taming the Tiger. In fact, she's referred to him as her "musical partner" on the project. He's a soft-spoken guy from Shreveport, LA., whose first JM album was Hejira, which he listened to in his VW Bug driving to and from high school. Brian is also one quarter of the band that will be playing with Joni at her shows with Bob Dylan and Van Morrison this month.
