“Snake baked a hoecake” is Jody Stecher’s first lp, issued by Bay Records in 1974. In my previous Jody Stecher’s post (“Rasa” with sitarist Krisna Bhatt”) i already told how great musician he is and how he manages to pick up the best from every musical traditions he goes into. On this album, there’s a mix of american and irish/celtic tunes and a awesome song with a indian flavor (Leela,leela…every time i listen to it, it makes me want to sing and dance and go live in an ashram). Jody is playing with a bunch of friends and the whole atmosphere of the lp reflects the good time they have playing together. On his next album, “Going up on the mountain” (one of my favorite lp of all time), he would continue in a more bluegrass vein, with more singing than on this one. There would be also the first duets with Kate Brislin, her wife and musical partner with whom he made some superb records ever since.
