Piano great Chuck Leavell
I saw this guy jogging down the street on my way to Mountain Stage.
You would never know that he played on the quintessential recordings by the Allman Brothers Band, has been leading the touring band of the Rolling Stones for 25 years and is the go-to piano player for many greats-Eric Clapton, The Black Crowes to name a couple-had his own success in Sea Level and went on to write three well received books on conservation.
I could go on, but there's plenty more on just who and what Chuck Leavell has done in his BIO.
What he's done for us is record a killer live set with the Mountain Stage band, featuring tunes from all periods of his career, including some from his latest double-live album, Live in Germany.
This and much more for your listening pleasure at NPR.org/MountainStage.
