Down On the Bayou
Chris Barber Jazz and Blues Band & Dr. John
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download music.
Trombonist Chris Barber's British trad band has long been open to the influence of blues and R&B. On this CD, they are joined on more than half of the selections by singer/pianist Dr. John, who plays New Orleans funk/R&B rather than New Orleans jazz. The music, therefore, is quite a mixed bag, with most of the songs being originals by either Dr. John or Barber, plus Woody Guthrie's "New York Town," "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out," and "Oh, Didn't He Ramble." Barber and trumpeter Pat Halcox play well as usual, but the band is very much in a subsidiary role on may of the selections and Dr. John has had more significant sessions on record. A historical curiosity.
