Still runnin': New Orleans bass legend George Porter Jr. releases new album, gets back onstage

Miss Vicki isn’t credited for her crucial role in the creation of George Porter Jr. & the Runnin’ Pardners’ new album, but she is unlikely to complain. Miss Vicki is a dachshund/Labrador mix that belonged to Porter’s late wife, Ara. Ara was an early riser, much more so than her musician husband. Thus, Miss Vicki got in the habit of getting up and going outside before sunrise.

The Core: George Porter Jr.

As he prepares to release a new record, The Meters’ bassist looks back on his storied career and the foundations of funk. Crying for Hope has 12 songs on it and seven of those songs were recorded probably four years ago. [Guitarist] Brint Anderson was still in the Runnin’ Pardners and we cut 20 or so tracks that we never released. And when he left, I started doing the Porter Trio thing with the remaining band—the drummer Terrence Houston and Michael Lemmler on keyboards. I played for about a year with that band and was having so much fun that I said, “Guys, why don’t you come over to the house and cut some tracks?” So, we went in and tracked about 19 songs. We were on a roll until COVID hit us.
