Leon Redbone is a true martian in the world of music.I even don't know about his age,although I listen to him for some 20 years.Every record by Leon is a gem,almost his early recordings in which he plays a lot of guitar; and when Leon plays guitar, he's truly amazing, somewhere between Blind Blake and Joseph Spence.There are great tunes in this record,a beautiful lullaby ("prairie lullaby"),tributes to Jelly Roll Morton ("Te-na-na" and the marvelous "why",to tunes recorded by Jelly Roll in his 1940 session,thelast he ever made),a tribute to Blind Blake too ("step it up and go"); let's say that Leon may be the guy that was the closer ever to Blind Blake;he can play outstanding things like Blind Blake did.Redbone's smoky voice is amazing in every tune.There is also a marvelous "extra blues",and a salute to the great Ukulele Ike,"when you wish upon a star".Backing Leon, you can listen to Dr John,Grady Tate,Bob Cranshaw and Ed Polcer.A great trip back to the pre-war years.

Leon is fabulous! Great musicians too. Jack Maheu makes it for me.
Check out the Salt City Six and Dukes of Dixieland if you don't believe me!
This, comming from a tuba player!
However, the recording engineer has no clue whatsoever! A VERY poor recording for contemporary standards. I would bet that even the master tape couldn't be cleaned up. Very shoddy work here! I could do beter with a dixie cup and a string to a scully lathe burning hot direct to platten.
If you are an audiophile, run away! If you have an unconditional love for jazz, go for it!
This could/should have been recorded better!

Format: Audio CD
After seeing him on Saturday Night LIVE a long time ago, I went out and bought this one on vinyl, my first Leon Redbone album... the first of many.

If you'd like to take a trip back in time to when music was important to the people who were hearing it, I can't think of a vehicle that will get you there in this much style. As I'm listening to it now, it reminds me EXACTLY of my one trip to New Orleans pre-Katrina and my stroll down and back on both sides of Bourbon Street. Every song has that lazy, warm, happy feel to it. There's a distinctly 'down south' feel to these tunes that's quite infectious to the listener; hard to get them out of your head once they're in there.

I'm not sure if this tells you anything or not, but little kids from about 3-8 LOVE this album. When it's playing, they may be occupied with their toys, etc., but just try to stop it before it finishes and see what happens.

Something else... play this one a little loud sometime, put a little energy in the speakers and see how it makes you feel. Branch to Branch is one of those rare collection of songs that you can listen to at almost any volume level and it will be enjoyable.

You can't go wrong with this one.

This CD contains a sampler of why Leon Redbone is such a fun listen, touching stylist and frustrating.

Seduced may be one of the best old songs to gladden your heart and make you smile. Prairie Lullaby may be the most tender rendering of any song. Then there is Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight. Leon had a bad habit of not paying attention when he felt the song was too oft redone or hackneyed. Here he slurs his presentation. One gets the notion he did not care that this song is included. Others may fault the sound engineer, but I have heard him do this with other songs.

There are only 11 songs here about ½ of a CD's worth of recording. This was about right for the LP record from which this is taken. We Leon Redbone fans may be few, but we would love to see some combined recordings with more than one LP per disk

Hey! He's the master of this genre of music and makes it fun to boot! Leon is always worth listening to.

Those of us of a certain age remember seeing this strange white-suited man on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE back in the late 70s/early 80s strumming along while singing in his own inimitable style classic rags. Redbone's BRANCH TO BRANCH is filled with great cuts, not all of them traditional folk/ragtime tunes. Hearing Redbone wail on "When You Wish Upon a Star" will banish thoughts of Jiminy Cricket from your mind, and "Seduced" ("I wanna be seduced/I want a woman to talk to me suggestively") deserves more attention than it's had over the years. Great voice, great instrumentals, great album.

My fav song on this CD is "I want to be seduced" that I heard a LONG TIME AGO!! Searched and searched for this ! Glad to have it in my collection! I love Leon's easy going tunes and how humble he sings them!
