This CD is being released in tandem with a concert DVD of the same title. The operative idea came from producer Cyril Vetter, who is interested in preserving the New Orleans jump-blues sound of the 1950s and early 1960s. The album showcases vocalist/guitarist Deacon John Moore, one of the great lights of the Big Easy music scene for more than 40 years. A number of terrific New Orleans players participated in this recording, including Dr. John, Henry Butler, Davell Crawford, and Allen Toussaint. Special moments include Teedy Boutté's vocal on "Piece of My Heart," the classic jump-blues numbers "Jumpin' in the Morning" and "Hook, Line and Sinker/Go On Fool," and the Zion Harmonizers' gospel tune "Jesus Is on the Main Line." An excellent history project. Distributed by Image Entertainment.—PVV
