Episode 48 – Luther Dickinson & Brandon “Taz” Niederauer

This week on Comes A Time, Luther Dickinson and Brandon “Taz” Niederauer join Oteil and Mike for an action-packed episode chock full of captivating conversation. Oteil, Luther and Taz discuss their connection to Col. Bruce Hampton and the impact that his teachings had on each of them, and Taz describes what it was like to play with Bootsy Collins. You’ll also hear Luther ask Mike about the conceptual thought process behind joke delivery in stand-up comedy, and Mike’s insightful comparisons between improvisational music and stand-up.

Luther Dickinson is a guitarist and vocalist best known for his work in the North Mississippi Allstars, a soulful blues-rooted group that he co-founded with his brother Cody in 1996. The son of legendary Memphis record producer Jim Dickinson, Luther has lived a life decorated with music since he was an infant. His soaring slide guitar playing has landed him on stage with legendary artists like The Black Crowes and Phil Lesh, and when he speaks about music his thoughtful approach to his creative process is unmistakable. The Mississippi Allstars 2019 album Up and Rolling can be listened to here.

Brandon “Taz” Niederauer is one of the most exciting guitar players in the world- and he’s only 18 years old. Taz’s talent has been readily apparent from a very young age, as he had already played with The Scorpions, Gregg Allman, Stevie Nicks, and Derek Trucks by the time he was 15. Needless to say, Taz is the premier name for young guitarists. His wildly energetic playing and expressive note selection have allowed him to stand as a beacon of light for instrumentalists in an increasingly digitized era of music, and his passion for his craft shines through when he speaks about it.
