You write a song, a well-crafted composition that captures the public’s imagination, and it becomes one of the best-loved tunes in American music. And then, lightning <em>doesn’t</em> strike twice.</p><p>These ‘One Hit Wonders’ of songwriting were bandleaders, or horn players, or even the occasional ‘nobody from nowhere.’ Regardless of who they were, they captured&nbsp;the spirit and soul of America in one big hit song, and were never heard from again.</p> Fri, 14 Sep 2012 13:07:36 +0000 Riverwalk jazz Staff 4437 at http://wrti.org Riverwalk Jazz: One-Hit Wonders of the Golden Era Remembering Drummer Lionel Batiste, Icon Of New Orleans Music http://wrti.org/post/remembering-drummer-lionel-batiste-icon-new-orleans-music "Uncle" Lionel Batiste, the bass drummer, singer and public face of the Treme Brass Band, died Sunday morning. <a href="http://www.nola.com/music/index.ssf/2012/07/uncle_lionel_batiste_treme_bra.html" target="_blank">NOLA.com reported</a> that the cause was cancer, and that he was 80.<p>Batiste was a popular ambassador for the band, and for New Orleans music at large. Ever well-dressed — usually with a hat, sunglasses and watch — he was often spotted gliding about on the dance floor or street, or leading a parade.
