I met Jack McCray last night, who writes and knows all about Charleston Jazz. I quote from him in this piece. Needless to say, we talked about James Jamerson and Edisto Island. What history and what music this man knows! The event was celebration of the heritage foodways of slaves, at Magnolia Plantation, who has an amazing project going on, spearheaded by the enthusiastic, and sweetheart of a guy, D.J. Tucker. Michael Twitty served madeira soaked ham, and yeast rolls, which had been cooked over an open fire all day. Oh my good!
