Wanda Jackson celebrated yesterday's release of her new Jack White-produced album, The Party Ain't Over, with a performance of the song "Funnel of Love" on Conan last night with White and The Third Man House Band. As the Conan site puts it, "Jackson kicked so much butt last night!" Jackson and White also spoke with Conan about the new album, and Jackson had some kind words for Elvis Presley. Watch the performance and interview clip here. Jackson is the subject of an AP article that recognizes the importance of the "diminutive dynamo's knives-out vocal delivery" in rock 'n' roll history.

Wanda Jackson celebrated yesterday's release of her new Jack White-produced album, The Party Ain't Over, on Third Man / Nonesuch Records, with a performance of the song "Funnel of Love" on Conan last night with White and The Third Man House Band. Or, as the Conan site teamcoco.com puts it, "Jackson kicked so much butt last night!"

Following their performance, Jackson and White moved over to the couch to discuss the new album with Conan O'Brien, and for Jackson to share a few fond memories of her time touring with and, as White reminds us, dating Elvis Presley. Finally, O'Brien, while holding a copy of The Party Ain't Over on vinyl, exhorts his audience: "Get this. It's fantastic!" You can do just that by heading to the Nonesuch Store, where the album is available on vinyl and CD and includes high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s at checkout.

Wanda Jackson and the new album are the subject of a feature profile from the Associated Press. "Jackson played a pivotal but often overlooked role in the history of rock 'n' roll," writes the AP's Chris Talbott by way of background on the famed singer. "The diminutive dynamo's knives-out vocal delivery helped lay the groundwork for all the women of rock and launched a 50-plus year career that has taken her around the world several times."

Jackson's next performance is another special one, this time for a hometown crowd in Oklahoma City. She and her band will give a free show at the University of Central Oklahoma's Academy of Contemporary Music this Friday.

    DAVÓNE TINES & THE TRUTH’s new work ROBESON, which premiered last month at NYC’s Little Island, is due September 13 on Nonesuch. In ROBESON, Tines’ solo recording debut, the musician grapples with the legacy of a hero. Exploding the musical repertoire of Paul Robeson, Tines and his band the Truth—pianist John Bitoy and sound artist Khari Lucas—take listeners on a trip from the stage of Carnegie Hall to the floor of a Moscow hotel room in an attempt to understand an icon not through aspiring to his monumentality, but through connecting to his vulnerability. The album track “THE HOUSE I LIVE IN" and a video for it directed by Tines are available today.
