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

Product Description

On his Vanguard debut, guitarist Tab Benoit favors his usual workmanlike approach, serving up standard blues and Cajun riffs with ease. Though not technically flashy, Benoit is a solid songwriter with enough musicality to more than make up for the lack of fireworks. He can give his songs a restrained ("I'm Tired") or relaxed ("Raided That Joint") feel and he emotes as well as anybody on the title track. The rollicking "Crawfishin'" and "Jambalaya" recall Louisiana, and Benoit closes things off with the frenetically up-tempo "Bayou Boogie." The one possible misstep here is his take on the Willie Dixon classic "Twenty-Nine Ways (to My Baby's Door)"; anyone who remembers Koko Taylor's earthshaking version will find this one a little tame. --Genevieve Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than ever October 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you play this record aside Benoit's earlier studio recordings, you can really see how much he has grown as a songwriter and singer. Tab's guitar work has always been strong and stylish, if a bit raw and technically simple. But, on this recording, you can hear that it's the phrasing and emotion that's important to him. He's not trying to impress with flash -- he's just playing from the heart. Highly recommended for blues fans, and it should be required listening for any would-be guitarists. The last thing the world needs is more speed demons like Steve Vai and Eric Johnson. Tab shows us that there's more to guitar than notes per second. And, his band is sooo solid. There's not a better blues drummer around than Allyn Robinson. Album highlights include the title track, "Mother Earth", and the oh-so-funky "Lights on, Nobody's Home".

5.0 out of 5 stars Keepin' Tab on the Blues February 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a perfect primer to Mr. Benoit's brand of blues. "These Blues Are All Mine" displays his raw approach to guitar playing which harkens back to the days of Albert King, when the most important part was exposing your musical soul. To Tab, it's not important to hit every note correctly, which makes his music so intriguing. If this CD has one drawback, it is the inclusion of the Hammond B-3, which almost seems like a safety net--something Benoit does not need. "These Blues..." also comes across as quite tame to anyone who has seen this guy play live. I would say it's like trying to compare a poster of a van Gogh with the actual painting. It can be appreciated, but not fully understood. For example, "Crosscut Saw" on the CD is under three minutes in length, while "live" it goes more than twice that time. The lack of his soloing just seems to take away from the overall product. And seeing him grind out a solo on just four strings (he breaks a lot of 'em) without missing a beat, is a thing to behold. I give this 5 stars, because for a studio album, it possesses much of the qualities you find in one of his shows, it just happens to be the Reader's Digest version thereof. Go see him if he ever comes to your town, he won't disappoint and you'll always go back for more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tab doesn't disappoint! October 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The first time I heard Tab was when a local blues radio station aired his rendition of Albert Collins' "Dirty Dishes". I very quickly ordered the Live "Swampland Jam" CD and became a fan. A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of sitting front and center at one of Tab's concerts and was just blown away. I knew it was gonna be a rollicking show when he broke his guitar string during the first number -- this guy's an amazing picker! As he played all of his songs from "These Blues are All Mine", I had to add that CD to my collection as well. This CD is the next best thing to hearing Tab live. I will agree with the reviewer who stated that the addition of the B-3 distracts ever-so-slightly from Tab's guitar on at least one of the tunes, but on others it works nicely. The title track is amazing, and I also especially like "Crawfishin'", "Don't Lose Your Cool", and "Mother Earth". This CD is packed full of funky, toe-tapping, makes-ya-wanna-get-up-&-dance music. I've been listening to it over and over, with no burn-out yet! Buy it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tabasco blues October 9, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I caught Tab playing at a small club in Madison, Wisconsin, sometime around 1993. There weren't many people there, but he and his trio played the hell out of the place. Strangers started dancing with each other, kid guitar players were slack-jawed, and everyone ordered up more beer. He brought Louisiana to the Chilly North, and the Chilly North was better for it. We were amazed at how good and whiskeyed-up his voice was. You want a good blues record? Tired of the same Stevie Ray licks? This is your man.

5.0 out of 5 stars This guy will jar your soul. Terrific hard edged blues.. November 25, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was lucky enough to catch Tab at a blues festival here in New Mexico this summer-WOW! He had the last of three blues bands appearing that day. None of the three were the least bit bad, but Tab was in a whole different realm. Consider buying this CD an investment in the good health of your soul. Tab comes on with a blast of energy that gives you a thrill. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch! August 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I've been a huge Tab fan ever since I heard "Nice and Warm". At the time I didn't think it was possible to top that CD -- now, after hearing "These Blues Are All Mine", I realize that he did it! Top notch all the way, from his vocal performance, to rhythm, to his lead work... the whole album is a winner from start to finish. Highly recommended!

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Simple...this disk is Tab on point, on his own and on fire...Every tune is very well recorded, but not over produced. The Tones are solid all the way through. Really this is the disk you want people to hear if you're going to introduce them to Tab Benoit!
