Paul will be on CBS Sunday Morning tomorrow, catching up with the Tiffany Network’s Harry Smith. Here’s the program info:
Paul Simon has been making music for five decades. We caught up with the legendary recording artist as he prepared to release his new CD, Surprise. Simon, 64 years old now, tells The Early Show‘s Harry Smith that writing a good song is still his greatest joy.
Sunday Morning airs at different times on different CBS affiliates. Find your airtime here.
Later in the day, Paul will do a 90-minute set at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, before the final act, the great Fats Domino. MSN will be streaming Jazz Fest tomorrow, in bits and pieces. My guess is that you’ll be able to catch the opening and closing numbers from Paul’s set with recorded music in the meantime. Better than nothing – and you can see it all here.
Paul will be joined in his set by Buckwheat Zydeco, who helped out at the Higher Ground show for Katrina relief last fall at Lincoln Center. You can listen to most of Paul and Buckwheat’s performance of “That Was Your Mother” here.
Paul rounds out the week with a special peformance for Time Magazine on Monday, a stop by Good Morning America on Friday and Saturday Night Live next week. Oh, he’s also releasing Surprise on Tuesday.
