Recently while visiting my favorite Jamaican Cafe in Leimert Park, an arts Village part of Los Angeles,California, I  kept hearing very nice Hammond “B-3 licks” and a funky guitar, so I followed the sounds around the building to Barbara Morrison(Blues Singer) Performing Arts Center. Once there , I was met by a man in a suit ,who said come in and have a seat. I wound up sitting there for almost two hours. Then it hit me!  That host is Garrett Morris , from the movie ,Cooley High, TVs “MARTIN”  and the original “Saturday Night Live” cast member.  There he was presenting some of the funniest comedians I’ve heard in a long time, especially from the “new generation” comics. With all due respect , they tend to over-use the foul language .  Deacon Jones Band Garrett Morris NOW

 

Besides Mr. Morris hosting the show every Saturday 7:PM, also a Blues icon on the Hammond  Organ, Deacon Jones  and The Deacon Jones Blues Band.  Jones at one time was  longtime sideman to John Lee Hooker.
