Editorial Reviews

Donald Harrison Jr. distills one of the world's greatest musical experiences: The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Veteran Festgoers know about those special moments when you're wandering from one stage to another and Indian Blues wraps it all up in one package and tosses it at you, like some shiny doubloon from a Mardi Gras Float. Mardi Gras Indian chants (via the Guardians of the Flame) meets jazz (via Donald Harrison and his band) meets New Orleans R&B (via Dr. John). The diverse styles embrace warmly like three New Orleans homeboys meeting on a New York street corner. Personnel includes Donald Harrison Sr., Dr. John, Cyrus Chestnut and Carl Allen.

4.0 out of 5 stars All On A Mardi Gras Day July 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
f you have been following the HBO series "Treme", you have seen the story line where Delmond talks his father into recording an album that combines Mardi Gras Indidan chants with jazz. This album is probably the inspiration for the story line. If you haven't watched "Treme" and/or are not familiar with the tradition of Mardi Gras Indians in New Orleans, just let the chants roll over, under and through you. You won't understand a word, don't even try, just listen to the spirit. Then you'll get Donald Harrison, Jr., himself an Indian Chief and jazz musician, mixing it up.

Donald Harrison, Jr. has covered a lot of musical territory in his career, from playing with Jack McDuff, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, Terence Blanchard and Don Pullen in the 1980s, to playing with the re-formed Headhunters band in the 1990s, to charting hits in the smooth jazz category with his group Donald Harrison Electric Band, to performing as a producer, singer and rapper in the traditional Afro-New Orleans Culture and Hiphop genres with his group, The New Sounds of Mardi Gras.

Indian Blues defies a formal categorization. It is "modern" jazz, along with the New Orleans style piano of Dr. John, along with traditional songs of the Indians. Did I hear someone say "gumbo"? Yah, you right. Indian Blues

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic disc April 3, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I admit I only became aware of Donald Harrison after watching Treme. I like a lot of his different jazz discs, but this one really stands out as something special. Great sounds and outstanding contributions by Dr John and others. Highly recommend it!

I first heard the song Hu-Ta-Ney on the Treme series, and it just jumped out and grabbed me. I have a lot of respect for Donald Harrison, so was thrilled he recorded this album. Sometimes, musical styles need a little kick and twist to stay fresh and relevant, and this album is a classic, and a joy to listen to. Great rhythms and melodies. Sometimes jazz demands you stop and pay attention, but this album is also excellent on your mp3 player while carrying on with life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz infused with New Orleans Culture March 20, 2013
By Ron
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This album is very much the inspiration for HBO's Treme storyline about an Indian chief father and jazz trumpet musician son. The son goes to NYC to make his mark in jazz. He returns to New Orleans to find his dad dying of cancer. One of the last things they do together is produce a jazz album with overtones of the New Orleans Indian culture. The music of Treme is great, the music on this Indian Blues album is fabulous. Donald Harrison Jr. is a jazz master on saxophone. The album also features New Orleans icon Dr. John.
