Riffing with Taylor Negron

Posted at 5:44 PM on September 5, 2008 by Euan Kerr

Taylor Negron and Logan Heftel practice what Negron says is the 'Lana Turner smile'

Taylor Negron says he likes to riff. One thought leads to another, and that leads to a story, which leads to a connection, and so on. Actually it led to a book, which then led to a stage show where Taylor says he tries to tell two good jokes, at least one of them risque, to every page. He performs with Logan Heftel, a Minneapolis musician he bumped into in a coffee shop in Utah. The show seems to have a little of everything. When we chatted I heard about Lucille Ball, Three Dog Night, Charles Manson, and a host of other people.

You can hear a sample here, and hear Negron talk here, and see the show here on Saturday.
