MITCH WOODS

GUMBO BLUES

2010-08-02

Mitch Woods has always been on of my favorite boogie piano players and New Orleans remains one of Americas greatest city's, so combining the two on this disc provides a Gumbo that is so good you will be asking for more. This CD is a tribute to Smiley Lewis a jump blues master who's songs have been recorded from the likes of Elvis Presley, Dave Edmunds, Room Full Of Blues and Aerosmith. Mitch who has adopted New Orleans as one of his home city's incorporates members of Allen Toussaint's band as well as members form the Dr. John Band, Bonearama and Cornell Williams the bassist for John Cleary to give this disc an authentic crescent city feel. These songs may be familiar, but Mitch has added enough spice in his Gumbo to keep your feet tapping and the dance floor hot. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
