Product Description

Celebrate the bayou while helping to save it! Acclaimed blues guitarist Tab Benoit is joined by Louisiana All-Stars including Dr John, Cyril Neville, the Meters rhythm section and others on this hot and spicy New Orleans blues party! A portion of proceeds from the sale of this CD go to "Voice Of The Wetlands", a non-profit organization battling cultural and coastal erosion. Ryko. 2005.

Telecaster-slinging South Louisiana native Tab Benoit is one of the brightest rising stars of contemporary blues. But he's stepped outside that promising career here, gathering a stellar ensemble of fellow New Orleans musicians (including N.O. legends Dr. John, Cyril Neville, Meters bass player George Porter, Jr., fellow bluesman Anders Osborne and fiddler Waylon Thibodeaux) to forge a musical plea about the fragile eco-system that is the increasingly depleted wetlands surrounding their hometown. But in the wake of the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina, the chorus of the otherwise savory, funk-charged opener "Bayou Breeze"--"Don't let the water wash us away"--now seems like a haunting, unheeded warning recorded eight months before disaster struck. Elsewhere, Dr. John injects some potent venom into "We Ain't Gonna Lose No More (Without a Fight)," taking to task an administration that's ignored the urgent needs of his homeland in favor of misadventure in Iraq. While songs like "Louisiana Sunshine" continue to focus largely on environmental concerns that grow more urgent with every tropical storm that gathers in the Gulf, it's also an album rife with New Orleans' cross-cultural musical joie de vivre, as witnessed by Benoit and Osborne's Cajun-seasoned "We Make a Good Gumbo" and the slinky African rhythms of Monk Boudreaux's "Me Donkey Want Water." Proceeds from the album's sales support a relief fund benefiting Louisiana victims of Katrina. --Jerry McCulley

4.0 out of 5 stars Blues Lover October 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you are a "true" Tab Benoit fan this is not what you are looking for. It is, however, a great all around "Lousiana Blues" (not cajun) CD. I prefer Tab and Tab alone! Enjoy!!

Good sample of Louisiana music. Made me look at the individual artist list of music. Wished they had a few more up beat songs.
