Carl Dufrene Jr, passed away today. I had seen him perform many times with Anders Osborne and the North Mississippi All Stars. An incredible bass player. A joy to watch. I know I speak for many when I say he will be greatly missed. This is Carl flanked by Anders Osborne to the right and Luther Dickinson of the NMA to the left for Anders’ 2013 Jazzest show. Really sad to see him go.
Let’s play some funky music for Brother Carl Dufrene Jr on this sad day. Carl was a wonderful friend, family man and musician. Carl would selflessly do anything to keep the mood upbeat, the music funky, and full of fellowship and positive vibes and inspiration. Carl was a great improvisational partner, fearlessly heading down uncharted spontaneous compositions while never losing the groove. We were honored to make music with Carl for years. He always elevated the music. Carl was a national treasure, a true ambassador of Louisiana musicality and hospitality. The Bayou Buddha will be missed by friends the world over but live on in the music and in our hearts.
Oh man, I did not see this coming – Carl Dufrene Jr. has died. I was lucky enough to spend a week working on a record with him down in Louisiana bayou country. He played with North Mississippi Allstars & Anders Osborne & many others. A beautiful soul with a deep groove. RIP.
