iTunes Editors’ Notes

The multitalented Hugh Laurie recorded these New Orleans blues standards with legends Dr. John, Irma Thomas, and Allen Toussaint, and he sounds like he’s been playing this music his entire life. His piano performance on an opening cover of “St James Infirmary” balances fiery soul and cool restraint. His singing is even more impressive—while confidently crooning like he was born on a bayou, Laurie never upstages the accompaniment. A rollicking rendition of “You Don’t Know My Mind” follows: percussion bangs and clangs like a Louisiana boiler room as Thomas harmonizes with Laurie as if they’ve been playing for years. He turns “Six Cold Feet” into a smoldering dirge where slide guitars waltz with saucy saxophone solos. Dr. John’s unmistakable drawl accompanies Laurie’s piano on “After You’ve Gone”; this version is trimmed with tasteful clarinet parts. Sir Tom Jones duets with Thomas on “Baby Please Make a Change.” Toussaint’s horn arrangements on the bonus track “Ain’t Necessarily So” provide a hauntingly brassy backdrop.

Customer Reviews

Hugh Laurie is awesome

'nuff said

A must-buy!

I was skeptical -- how could my favorite actor also be a decent singer? This album is fantastic, a new side of Hugh Laurie, and a passionate one at that. The energy he brings to these tracks is outstanding.

Laurie the musician is one hot, bad player--in the best sense!

Love the tracks on this cd. Laurie's voice is crisp and soulful. This is a definite "buy" for those who love the blues. Bravo to the man. I look forward to his next cd!
