Biography

Tab Benoit is a Cajun man who’s definitely got the blues. Born November 17, 1967, he grew up in Houma, Louisiana. A guitar player since his teenage years, he hung out at the Blues Box, a ramshackle music club and cultural center in nearby Baton Rouge run by guitarist Tabby Thomas. Playing guitar alongside Thomas, Raful Neal, Henry Gray and other high-profile regulars at the club, Benoit ... Read more in Amazon's Tab Benoit Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

What's best about Best of the Bayou Blues is Tab Benoit's spankin' electric guitar tones and lean 'n' nasty licks on numbers like the ode to Cajun living "Voodoo on the Bayou" and the stinging, vibrato-drenched epic "These Blues are All Mine." This collection of Louisiana-themed tunes plucked from Benoit's five early Vanguard albums relate to the singer-and-six-stringer's swampland raising. They also showcase his versatility--veering from his customary plugged-in blues framework to a gentle acoustic take on the Delta classic "Mother Earth" to a roaring zydeco romp through Clifton Chenier's dancehall anthem "Hot Tamale Baby." Willie Nelson guests on "Rainy Day Blues," trading vocals and blending his nylon-string guitar with Benoit's Telecaster. A brisk jaunt through Hank Williams's "Jambalaya" seems more lagniappe than main course, but when Benoit's guitar comes crying into the soulful, homesick "Nice and Warm"--which plays out like a page written in this road warrior's diary on an especially lonely night--he more than compensates for the few slights among these 15 tunes. --Ted Drozdowski

Product Description

Comprehensive 16 track collection pulled from Benoit's Five Vanguard albums. ''What I like is he captures a real blues feel in his playing and singing, and adds a bit of Louisiana hot sauce on it.'' - Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top.

I listened to a short blurb of his music and I was hooked.

He can really play the Telecaster and if you are a fan of good guitar players with an adequate voice to get the job of rocking you out he might be your guy.
Glen L. Gertz
If you are not familiar with Tab Benoit and you like that Cajun soulful rock sound, then I would highly recommend this CD.

This maybe the perfect bayou blues CD and Tab Benoit delivers all these songs with finesse and energy. There are classic tracks - Drowin' on Dry Land, Jambalaya, Rainy Day Blues and Hot Tamale Baby. His self-penned titles all have classic blues appeal - all tracks are great. I love Nice and Warm; Gone too long; Crawfishin'; These blues are all mine. This CD is pretty much a best of and every track is guaranteed to raise your pulse. This guy is so good I just wished I lived in the US, so I could see him live. I also have his Fever for the Bayou CD, and I sense that Tab Benoit has a great sound - The Blues are here to stay. Tab Benoit has a great voice and he sure knows how to play a well worn guitar. Love the blues and you will love this CD.

This album highlights Tab at his best and includes a great selection of sounds from his previous albums. Some new songs and some old and traditional make it a spicy mix to suit the blues ear. No matter which type of blues genre you are into this can't fail to please.

The Cajun side of blues. Lived in Tab's hometown for a year and know what he sings about. Good guitar and a beat that makes you tap your feet.

Watch this guy. He's amazing. I just recently got turned on to him and now own a few of his CDs and I want more. The covers are great on this and his originals are sweet and edgy. Billy Gibbons described this guy as traditional straight up classic blues man with a generous dose of cajun hot sauce. Billy knows right.

Like the variety and Tab has a great blues voice. Good choices for a clear idea of his approach to the blues. If I was managing Tab I would have suggested a different name. "Tab" sounds too country club. Maybe just "T" Benoit?

Best of the Bayou Blues
If you are familiar with Tab Benoit's style of blues, this CD will not disappoint. All of the tracks have been released on earlier CD's of his. Check out other CD's of his and you can hear the sample tracks on them.
