I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Lost Bayou Records artists: Lost Bayou Ramblers - Kalenda - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Kalenda, from the Lost Bayou Ramblers and it's a earthy taste of Lousiana. Opening with Sabine Turnaround, Andre Michot on accordion and Louis Michot on vocal and fiddle present this rural music in it's purity supported by Eric Heigle on drums, Korey Richie on bass, Jonny Campos on guitar and Kirkland Middleton on T-fer. Granny Smith is a real foot stomper with particularly hot drumming by Heigle. La Valse de Balfa/ The Bathtub is a particularly cool track with environmental sounds over Kirkland Middleton on drums. Very cool.  Si J'auris Des Ailes is another interesting track with a strong melody by accordion and fife over super, stumble march drumming. Nezpique is a lively jig with a droning bass line, churning fiddle and tom tom. Title track, Kalenda, has a very cool African feel with definite Creole/Cajun influences. Mysterious and cool. Wrapping the release is Aloha Golden Meadow, Andre's playing pedal steel, Hawaiian style against sonic backing. The tune is haunting and enchanting...very nicely done.
