Leon Russell

Leon Russell wasn’t exactly lost, but thanks to Elton John, he’s been rediscovered. After their collaboration on 2010’s The Union, the Oklahoma songwriter enjoys his highest profile since the early ’70s when he released three gold records in as many years. He’s resurfaced just in time for his brand of grizzled gospel-roots to catch a ride on the burgeoning southern soul revival. At this point in his career, it’s hard to believe there’s much Russell hasn’t done. He began piano lessons at 4 and by 14 was playing nightclubs in Tulsa. He went to LA to get into advertising but wound up a member of the Wrecking Crew, the seasoned LA session players featured on the biggest hits of the ’60s from the Beach Boys, Rolling Stones, Johnny Mathis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Sam Cooke, Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, Tina Turner and Bob Dylan, to name a few. With Hailey Whitters.

    Owned by a man with beard enough for two, Mark Vollmer’s coffee trailer offers quality coffee and pastries to cappuccino-craving commuters at 410 and Nacogdoches. In the time since it’s opened, the area surrounding this coffee trailer has transformed into a hub of food vendors with varied seating options, some natural greenery and occasional live music. Grab an iced latte (there’s house-made almond milk for vegans, too) and admire one of the classic muscle cars that frequently stop by.
