High energy power piano trio with trombone and drums playing some of the blues, funk, and boogie piano music from New Orleans, with Canada's "songstress of soul" , Ann Vriend, singing on two songs and Rooster Davis' gritty blues vocals on the rest.
NOTES
The Rooster Davis Group is all about delivering an exiting performance full of energy with a high level of musicianship and execution. The group is based around the driving, virtuosic piano that has principally developed in New Orleans, particularly starting with Professor Longhair, James Booker and Fats Domino, and continues today through the current masters such as Allen Toussaint, Dr. John and Jon Cleary. Rooster Davis is known primarily for the way he plays the blues, which most closely resembles the style of Dr. John (Mac Rebennack), although he does play some Dixie and Trad Jazz in his group, the blues can be heard in everything he does.
