Groovin’, Smooth, Jump Street, Buck Jivin’, Dancin’ MUSIC!

So what’s this BACK TO THE BIG EASY CD about? Well let me explain.

These artists, these recordings, this music is! It just is! Hey, If you hear it you will feel it! All of it. THE INGREDIENTS ON THIS DISC MAKES UP WHAT WE CALL A “HELL OF A POT OF GUMBO”! EACH ARTIST ON THIS DISC HAS HIS OR HER OWN RECORDINGS. ALL BUT ONE ARE SOME OF THE MOST HERALDED AND LEAST KNOWN THAT I COULD PUT TOGETHER. And that one is indefinably unique.

The Zydeco Hounds are butt shakin’ middle class white boys. Luther Kent has the biggest, most soulfully melodic voice in the cosmos. Irma Thomas is the Queen of Louisiana Rhythm and Soul. Raful Neal is a Blues Legend! Major Handy, also known as a “Zydeco bad boy” is a best kept secret. Bobby Charles?, You Never heard of him?, ask Fats Domino, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson and Etta James. Clifton Chenier, “The forever King of Zydeco”. Hoyt Garrick, well sometimes great songwriters never venture far from home. Duke Bardwell, an ole chunk of coal surrounding a soulful, melodic vocal diamond. John Fred, it can not be said, that there are many like him around, he’s a Rock n Roll singer. Coteau, this assembly of musicians represents the absolute best Cajun music has to offer! Clarence ” Gatemouth” Brown, (in Chinese) How you say? The Real Thing! A Grand Master. The “sumbitch” can PLAY!
Gary Vincent and Wayne Trahan, ok, these are that one. The magnitude of the lyrical thought and musical content. Make this the epitome of it all!

Johnny Palazzotto

“A little bit of creole cajun, bayou swamp pop, zydeco blues and Rock n’ Roll from the Mother of all American Music, New Orleans, Louisiana, baby! This Music doesn’t happen just anywhere!”
