Review

Right, there you have something from a group called Tipitina and the album is called I Wish I Was In New Orleans it s on Big Bear Records, and I think it was Irma Thomas who first did I Never Fool Nobody But Me but it was written by Doc Pomus and Dr. John, a lovely song, and there s a lot of that type of material and let me tell you who they are: Debbie Jones on vocals, Justin Randall on piano and BV s where heard Gary Barber on drums and BV s, various other people augmenting it as well, but that s the basic group, and Justin Randall puts a lot of piano tributes in between all the songs and they, generally speaking, refer to keyboard players from the Crescent City, Mr Jelly which will be Jelly Roll Morton of course, Cousin Joe, Toots Washington, Champion Jack, Dr. John Crow, etc, etc. I found the album hugely entertaining and I would hope that Tipitina do very well out of it. --BBC Radio 2 - Paul Jones

This wholly admirable album plays like a live set. It is a studio recording but the way it builds from the opening, wistful interpretation of a fine Tom Waits number into some jumping jive and concludes in exciting fashion with a pair of R&B classics leaves you feeling that you had the best table in front of the band. Along the way are soulful ballads, a touch of gospel, plenty of rollicking boogie and even some Country-inflected blues. Just about every aspect of the Crescent City's superior popular music is covered. It is rather a surprise then to discover from the excellent album notes (by Dave Gelly, Paul Jones and the producer, Jim Simpson) that this is a band from Preston, Lancs. Their youthful energy, sincerity and obvious affection for the New Orleans styles are quite captivating. They can also play. The heavily featured vocalist, Debbie Jones, has a rich, soulful and very expressive voice, well suited to the material. The authentic-sounding soloing of Justin Randall shows a mastery of the various New Orleans piano styles and there is also invigorating solo input from the saxist and guitarist. As well as the titles listed above, there are brief piano solo interludes between the numbers illustrating the playing of Big Easy stylists like Jelly Roll Morton, Champion Jack Dupree, Dr John, Allen Toussaint, Fats Domino et al. These half-minute or so forays are charming in themselves; they enhance the immediacy of the listening experience and give the album an agreeable flow. Anything that concentrates attention on New Orleans in the light of the wicked neglect by officialdom post-Katrina is to be welcomed. The citizens and especially the local musicians still need support. Albums like this that help to keep their music alive is one way of doing so. I look forward to seeing the band in person because they are a sure-fire club and festival attraction. --JAZZ JOURNAL by BOB WEIR, JANUARY 2008

Firstly, a progression of hymn-like chords introduces a stirring gospel-infused vocal and an attractive blues ballad unfolds .Next, a gently purring saxophone enters and a vocal backing group emerges to reinforce the lead singer s soulful fire as she moves towards a dramatic finale. This is the way the group Tipitina approaches the Tom Waits title track, the opening number on this remarkable CD which from its start conveys a sense of the steam-heat of a New Orleans night, a Bourbon Street bar where the house band mix the genres in a typically Crescent City manner. Tipitina takes its name from the best known composition of New Orleans piano giant Henry Byrd (aka Professor Longhair) and comprises the quite exceptional singer Debbie Jones, a remarkable blues/boogie/R&B pianist Justin Randall and a versatile driving drummer Gary Barber. They are augmented on this debut album by guitarist Andy Jones, saxophonist Boysey Battrum and bassist Tom Hill. Twelve varied pieces include another gospelly blues ballad It Ain t Gonna Worry --Chris Yates

They are augmented on this debut album by guitarist Andy Jones, saxophonist Boysey Battrum and bassist Tom Hill. Twelve varied pieces include another gospelly blues ballad It Ain t Gonna Worry My Mind, Billy Taylor s churchy anthem I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free, Nat Cole s Hit That Jive Jack, Fats Waller s Ain t Misbehavin and Dr John s I Never Fool Nobody But Me. Continually, the striking Voice of Debbie Jones dominates but special mention must be made too of moments such as Justin Randall s boogie tour de force on the fast rocking Breaking Up The House. These pieces are cleverly interspersed with eleven piano interludes from Justin Randall, all brief (under one minute) paying tribute to the rich roster of New Orleans piano masters, ranging from the extremely well known (Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Domino, Allen Toussaint, Dr John) to lesser known exponents (Tuts Washington, Henry Butler, James Brooker). Possibly that Spanish tinge which Jelly Roll Morton thought so essential to jazz found its fullest expression in New Orleans blues and R&B where blues characteristics and Caribbean rhythms blended so uniquely. Now comes the revelation! The group is not from New Orleans, nor the Deep South , nor even from the USA, but from Preston, Lancashire! To capture the spirit of this music so fully from a base in the North West of England is a spectacular achievement. --Chris Yates

4.0 out of 5 stars Stage vs Studio 3 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
I had the pleasure of seeing these guys live at the weekend - superb!
It has to be said that the stage line-up differs from the CD musicians, but both appear proficient. The core elements are Debbie on vocals (and guitar on stage) and Justin, a very talented keyboard-player and backing vocalist. They blend together very well and have great rapport.
If you appreciate New Orleans style jazz, then this (slightly expensive) CD is a good investment. A mix of Dr John, Fats Domino & Professor Longhair - highly entertaining!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth A Listen 14 July 2011
Format:Audio CD
Fans of Jazz, New Orleans Jazz or even Easy Listen will have few complaints about this. Not as good as Tipitina live of course but well worth a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic band 14 Feb 2012
By Mr. Thomas M. Watson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These are a local band for me and I have seen them live on several occasions. The vocals sung mainly by Debbie have a sound all of their own, fantastic voice. The band is made up of several members, who are all good at what they do but the outstanding presence of Justin on keyboards, creates a unique sound. This CD and their latest CD are well worth a place in anyones music library. Excellent!
