ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The premise here is '50s and '60s New Orleans jump blues led to rock 'n' roll. Forget the premise, or argue about it if you'd prefer. The reality is this disc, built around the considerable talents of guitarist/vocalist Deacon John Moore and a slew of high-powered friends, is a smoking, cooking, rollicking effort packed with powerful Crescent City blues, R&B and rock 'n' roll.

It doesn't hurt that the Deacon played guitar on many of the hits that came out of Cosimo Matassa's legendary New Orleans recording studio. And it certainly helps that Moore is joined in this labor of musical love by the likes of Allen Toussaint, Dr. John, Wardell Quezergue, the Zion Harmonizers, Teedy Boutté, Henry Butler, Amadee Castenell, a fat horn section and the best rhythm players in New Orleans. From 'Jumpin' in the Morning' through 'Going Back to New Orleans' the CD turns the spotlight on classic sounds. Those sounds are so soulful, so, well, jumping, that nostalgia need not figure in."
-Jim Beal Jr., San Antonio Express-News


"The album showcases vocalist/guitarist Deacon John Moore, one of the great lights of the Big Easy music scene for more than 40 years. . . . Special moments include Teedy Boutté's vocal on 'Piece of My Heart,' the classic jump-blues numbers 'Jumpin' in the Morning' and 'Hook, Line and Sinker/Go On Fool,' and the Zion Harmonizers' gospel tune 'Jesus Is on the Main Line.' An excellent history project." -Phillip Van Vleck, Billboard


"the music, from the 1950's and 1960's, still puts the New Orleans roll in rock 'n' roll."
-Jon Pareles, New York Times


"the most important New Orleans CD released so far in the new millennium." -Jeff Hannusch, offBEAT


". . . the heart and soul of the music and the musicians that once rocked out of the streets of the French Quarter. . . 'Jumping In The Morning' is as hot an opener as you will find in any genre." -Michael Flynn, BluesWax


"Deacon John's Jump Blues. . . feels like a classic New Orleans band operating at the peak of its powers."
-Keith Spera, The Times-Picayune, New Orleans


"He's leapt into jump blues with a New Orleans accent and beat that makes the music swing even more than it did originally." -Nick Spitzer, American Routes

Clive Richardson/solar radio

return to the classic style of New Orleans R&B
Heard the soundclips first; bought the CD and have been reassured that there is lots of life in Crescent City R&B.
Wardell Q's charts are unbelievable; rasping tenor sax from a previous decade, great variety of style and tempo, but musical quality remains just GREAT. Deacon John has been an under-sung stalwart hero in New Orleans for so many years- now his time has come!!

wow
The first thing I always seem to listen to in a new recording is the rhythm section. Does it make me bounce or put me to sleep? A great rhythm section like this pops, and everything feels snappy. And that is what is going on here. A real finger poppin', snappy good time. Of course, coming out of NOLA one would expect as much, but when it goes that extra something, it becomes exquisite. A band sound like this can make anyone up front sound good. So, add a seasoned pro with great pipes and, well...damn I love this sort of thing! Jump start my heart and do it again!
