Wardell Quezergue Recieves Award
By Eve Abrams
New Orleans, LA –
Wardell Quezergue has been a professional musician since he was 12 years old. Now 79, Quezergue is still arranging and producing records for the likes of Dr. John, Paul Simon, and Willie Nelson -- adding to a long list of musical luminaries including Earl King, Professor Longhair, and James Booker.
Loyola University recently conferred an honorary Doctorate of Music on Mr. Quezergue, and last year, Offbeat Magazine awarded him a Best-of-the-Beat Lifetime Achievement Award. Eve Abrams recently spoke with Mr. Quezergue about his career.
