Magic weather.  Long holiday.  Time to check the brain and get the motor running.

 

Real simple post folks. Put on your favorite fare, down a couple and stomp!

 

Anything music-wise coming out of Louisiana is allowed.

This one merits posting in "RTM."

I've been listening to these guys a lot lately. I also dig Anders Osborne.

New Orleans Piano -- CD

Professor Longhair

1972/1989 Atlantic Jazz

Professor Longhair is the fountainhead of New Orleans R&B, and NEW ORLEANS PIANO is one of the style's essential documents. It contains recordings 'Fess made for Atlantic in the late 1940s/early '50s, some of his finest sessions. This collection wasn't released until 1972, but it surely had a profound effect on every young pianist who heard it; on Longhair's signature song, "Tipitina," and others, the piano king's loose-limbed, rolling piano lines, organically polyrhythmic second-line grooves, and rough, quirky vocals add up to a jubilant, seamless style that's simultaneously vibrant and unhurried. 'Fess's trademark whistling atop the insistent piano figure of "Mardi Gras in New Orleans" remains one of the most vivid sonic evocations of party time in the Crescent City.

Michael Doucet & Cajun Brew -- CD

Michael Doucet & Cajun Brew

1987 Rounder Records

Great musicians and great fun., March 11, 2003
By Stephen R. Parrish (Milledgeville, GA USA) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Michael Doucet & Cajun Brew (Audio CD)

I can't stop listening to this disk though I've had it for a decade but haven't payed much attention. Started out to make a Mardi Gras disk for a party this year and this knocked me off my feet now that I finally really listened. Sonny Landreth produces and plays. Richard Thompson was dragged from Jazz Fest. Just a bunch of musicians that love cajun music getting together and having fun, mostly with non-traditional stuff but the playing is tight and the whole thing really smokes. Was She a Woman or a Man is surreal.

1. Wooly Bully
2. Bayou Pom Pom
3. Un Autre Soir Ennuyant (Another Lonely Night)
4. Hey, Good Lookin' (Hé 'Tite Fille)
5. Last Wednesday Night (Mercredi Soir Passé)
6. Louie, Louie
7. Woman or a Man?
8. Pauline
9. Zydeco Boogaloo
10. Like a Real Cajun (Comme un Vrai Cajun)
11. J'Ai Passé Devant Ta Porte (I Passed by Your Door)
12. Do You Want to Dance? (Veux-Tu Danser)
