J.J. Friends - Jeffrey Foucault And Joseph Parsons


Another great evening at La Pomme d’Eve, last Thursday, my very good friend Joseph Parsons was on the bill together with Jeffrey Foucault and for nothing I would have missed this show. I knew Joseph worked recently on new songs for his forthcoming CD (summer?) and I was looking forward to hear some of them live. One is called Dume Room and talks about a homeless guy leaving somewhere in Los Angeles. Such a wonderful song. Joseph ended his too short set with a brilliant cover of Van Morrison’s Tupelo Honey. Come back soon, Joseph.
The second part of the evening featured Jeffrey Foucault alone on guitar. Jeffrey is a young singer/songwriter coming from Wisconsin. Young but believe me in almost two hours he showed enough maturity with his folk ballads that could place him already amongst the best: Townes Van Zandt, John Prine or Greg Brown… I’m not joking, Jeffrey Foucault writes remarkable songs with sharp and clever lyrics and with the uniformity of mood that makes him comparable to Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks. (Van again!).
Before the show, I had the pleasure to chat with him and Joseph in a tiny restaurant across the street. We talked about last week’s Neil Young performance in Paris and if songs could change the world… What was not my surprise when during the second part of his show Jeffrey dedicated one song to me, a song from Neil Young, Albuquerque. Unforgettable! Thanks again Jeffrey!
Of course, I didn’t leave La Pomme d’Eve without buying
Ghost Repeater his third solo album (December 2006): “Holed up in Iowa City for the coldest week of the year, Jeffrey Foucault teamed with legendary blues guitar player and producer Bo Ramsey (Greg Brown, Lucinda Williams) to create Ghost Repeater, a country and blues album at the crossroads of love and lament, exploring the hopefulness of new love and the seasickness of contemporary American living.” A great CD that doesn’t leave my CD player since Thursday night.

That was one of the last
Acoustic In Paris evening, three more and it will be over: Kris Delmhorst (Madame Jeffrey Foucault!) & Dennis Crommett (March 19); Greg Brown & Bo Ramsey (April 15 and 16). Everybody must be there.
