Paris DJs Soundsystem - Celebrating Joe Henry



Paris DJs Soundsystem Celebrating Joe Henry

We've been supporting the music of Joe Henry for years now, so we couldn't avoid cooking a tribute mix to celebrate his double talent of producer and songwriter. Choosing just a few tracks in his discography was heartbreaking but here we are, with a fine and subjective selection including famous artists like Allen Toussaint or Bettye LaVette, young artists such as Carolina Chocolate Drops or Hugh Laurie (yes, Dr.House himself !) and rarities.You can read our exclusive interview with Joe Henry and listen to his new and superb release, Reverie (out on Anti- Records). That's how Paris DJs loves madly, Mr.Henry !
