Cowsills Peace Protest Set
June 2019
Offbeat Magazine

Of all the artists who delved into ‘60s material at Jazz Fest, Susan Cowsill di it the best. She announces early on that it would be a “peace protest” set, and half of it was appropriate covers: Mama Cass Elliott’s “New World Coming,” the Youngbloods “Get Together,” Melanie’s “Lay Down,” and the O’Jays’ “Love Train” (plus a lovely version of Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds,” done in honor of her drummer/husband Russ Broussard’s late brother). Points for choosing songs that don’t often get covered, and her crystalline voice was perfect for them – and for the thematically-linked original songs, including a couple of new ones, that were done in between. None of it was presented as nostalgia, but as words of wisdom that still apply.
