Alabaster dePlume covers Arthur Russell and Jaimie Branch for Lagniappe Sessions
Jazz musician and poet Alabaster dePlume has recorded three covers for The Lagniappe Sessions, for which LA audio journal Aquarium Drunkard asks musicians to pay tribute to some of their favorite artists.
The session includes covers of 'A Little Lost' by the late avant-pop artist Arthur Russell, friend and contemporary Jaimie Branch's 'Love Song' and a traditional Georgian song, as arranged by the Alexandrov Ensemble, called 'Souliko'. You can listen to the session here.
Alabaster dePlume will be Le Guess Who? 2021’s Artist in Residence. Other artists that will perform at the fourteenth edition of the festival are Mount Eerie, Lucrecia Dalt, Bohren & Der Club of Gore, Midori Takada, and many more.
