Leon Redbone - Sunday Breakfast with John Platt - 2014 Radio Interview

9.2.14 at 8:43pm by John Platt

Is Leon Redbone lazy or just laid back? It's a question worth asking, since it took him 13 years to put out his most recent album, ironically titled Flying By. When he came to WFUV recently, I did ask, but I'm not sure he answered it (or any of my questions) directly, but he laughed a lot and let us know a little about what appeals to him in a song. He also gave us a couple of tunes in Studio A, accompanied by the incomparable Vince Giordano on tuba and upright bass.
