Product description

Product Description

'The Sea Saint Sessions' captures guitarist Tab Benoit and a talented group of musicians spontaneously creating a collection of eleven punchy, blues tracks recorded at the Sea Saint Studio in New Orleans.

Tab and his regular bassist Carl Dufrene and drummer Darryl White are joined by special guests, vocalists/percussionists Big Chief Monk Boudreaux and Cyril Neville, guitarist Brian Stoltz and guitarist/bassist George Porter. Together they have created 11 gritty blues tracks, steeped in the bayou traditions of Benoit's native Louisiana.

With two albums released on Telarc last year (one with Jimmy Thackery), Benoit is clearly a rising star on the contemporary blues scene.

Personnel:
Tab Benoit - (vocals, guitar), Carl Dufrene - (bass), Darryl White - (drums), Big Chief Monk Boudreaux - (vocal, percussion), Cyril Neville - (vocal, percussion), George Porter - (guitar, bass), Brian Stoltz - (guitar, vocal)

Soulful singer and guitarist Tab Benoit has never made secret his devout allegiance to the Louisiana music tradition. With The Sea Saint Sessions, Benoit, ably assisted by several Crescent City stalwarts, takes his music back to the source, setting up shop at the famed hit factory to cook up a sonic gumbo that successfully recaptures the spontaneity of the classic Sea Saint sound. Benoit's guests conjure up some of the studio's old musical magic as "Big Chief" Monk Boudreaux infuses Mardi Gras Indian spirit into "Monk's Blues," Meter man George Porter Jr funkifies "Making the Bend," and Cyrille Neville sings on his own "Plareen Man". But it is Benoit's distinctive guitar lines--somehow both supple and hard-edged--and the impeccable elasticity of his regular rhythm section that makes the music work. Most of the material is Benoit's own, although he pays tribute to Louisiana legend Guitar Slim with a take on the classic "Sufferin' Mind" and dips into the Howlin' Wolf songbook for a rendition of "Howlin' for My Darling". --Michael Point, Amazon.com
