TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 15 August 2006
James Booker was a was marvellous musician who was capable of reading 3 staves of music. He played Bach and Rachmaninov at a very young age and went onto to become one of the greatest New Orleans Piano Players ever.

The great Allen Toussaint (producer/arranger/Pianist) knew Booker well and said that when Booker played the Piano all he did was sit down and watch in admiration.

This album features him with some of the best New Orleans players in 1973. The tapes disappeared until 1992 and were released in 1997.

This is an absolute must have if you like New Orleans music. Standards such as Junco Partner, Goodnight Irene and Tico Tico are very well done with Booker playing a funky little spinet Piano.

Just when you think it can't get any better, you come across a track like "Feel So Bad". This makes the CD worth getting on its a own - a fabulous 12/8 blues with impassioned vocals from Booker and great Piano playing.

All the recordings Booker made are worth getting, and this gem is one of the very best.

This is a good re-run of many of Booker's well know tunes. The backing group are adequate rather than ourtstanding, with the exception of the drummer who drives some track along in great style !

Of the two James Booker CDs that I've just purchased this by far is the best one. 5 star. If you like jazz piano then you will love this CD.
