“‘Good Time Music’ is a continuation of the music I was making with Levon Helm, with roots in Ray Charles, New Orleans, and the blues,” Bernstein says, “but refracted through my own musical prism, the particular language of the MTO and Catherine Russell’s magnificent voice.”

Bernstein and Russell met in 2008 when Russell did a show at one of Levon Helm’s Midnight Ram-ble’s at his barn in Woodstock; later, she recorded her acclaimed album Sentimental Streak there, with Bernstein playing and arranging horns. Russell became a regular at the Ramble and cut the Harry Nils-son tune “Poli High” with Bernstein’s band Sexmob the following year, followed by a few New York shows with the MTO. She became part of the community.

The album’s title comes from Lou Reed, who had just seen Helm’s triumphant 2007 show at New York’s Beacon Theatre. Bernstein was in the band and recalls that “the audience went crazy.” Reed’s summation was a bit more subdued: “Oh, you know,” he told his friend Hal Willner, “it was good time music.”
