ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Wooly Bully Express is the much-anticipated follow up to Jericho Road Show's first release, Walking the Dog, selected as one of the top ten albums for 2009 by WWOZ radio in New Orleans.

Jericho Road Show comprises vocalists Washboard Chaz, legendary bandleader of New Orleans featured in the award winning "Playing for Change" project, Steve Gardner of Pocahontas MS, who has been one of the leading acoustic bluesmen in the Tokyo music scene for over a decade, and Bill Steber, leader of the Tennessee-based retro jug band collective the Jake Leg Stompers, who have been frightening the starched-shirt music row executives of Nashville with heavy doses of Chicken-fried, Pre-war, Hokum-billy Jug music authenticity since 2005.

Rounding out this eclectic international music collective is Britain’s Bill Benfield on mandolin and guitar, Japan’s Hisa Nakase on upright bass, East Tennessee’s Brandon Armstrong on Tuba and Trombone, and Mississippi’s Dudley Tardo, drummer and band leader of the House Rockers, featured in the acclaimed 2003 Robert Mugge documentary film “Last of the Mississippi Jukes.”

On Wooly Bully Express, the boys return to the formula for success that served them so well on their “Walking the Dog” debut by bringing lively and original arrangements and interpretations of traditional songs to international audiences on a wide variety of vintage and newer National Resophonic acoustic instruments.

Wooly Bully Express was recorded live during 3 sweltering August days in New Orleans and the resulting album fairly glistens with energy, authenticity and Abita and Po’ Boy-fueled enthusiasm.

After bringing the house down during the 2009 Vienna Blues Festival, the Jericho Road Show looks forward to bringing their brand of high-energy acoustic roots and blues music to your town. Get on the express!

“The boys of the Jericho Road Show break up the house, tumble down the walls and boogie on the bricks! They’re the real deal...I just love ‘em...you will too!” -Peggy Lou, WWOZ radio, New Orleans

Good Old Time Music
This is old time music ("In the Jailhouse Now," "Ain't Gonna Rain No More," etc.) with guitar, banjo, harp (harmonica), musical saw, washboard, and various percussion, along with the vocals. It is well worth buying if you like that kind of music. It is well played and well recorded in a studio. Keep an eye open for live performances if they come through your area on tour. Steve Gardner and Bill Steber recently did a swing by town on tour and I was able to catch them at the Coral Room in The Vicksburg. The advantage of live performances is that you can get your CDs autographed, and they do invite a little audience participation.

Anti déprime
En v’la une rondelle qui respire la bonne humeur, qui sent le trip rigolard entre une bande de potes qui sont pas dans la déprime et qu’ont franchement pas l’intention de se la gonfler. Des potes tous « cadorcisés » (balèze quoi !!!) dans le domaine de la blues académie, des gars qu’ont un CV long comme un discours de Fidel, mais qui, eux, font pas dans le chiant et qui nous offrent, sans coup férir, une régalade de folk blues, de country blues, d’Américana sound puisé dans le vaste réservoir des chants traditionnels, auxquels ils donnent une seconde vie à coups d’arrangements vivants et originaux.
Ca fleure bon le jug band, le brass band, le Mississippi country et surtout la fête, l’authenticité et l’enthousiasme, normal pour une rondelle mise en boite en direct live, en seulement trois jours. Mais peut il en être autrement sans risquer d’aseptiser, de ripoliniser, de chiantiser une musique qui ne demande qu’a vivre, qu’à exploser ??
Je connais et j’adore, dans le même registre, les Wiyos, mais là vais faire une place sur l’étagère de les Cds de première bourre pour les gars du Wooly Bully Express, c’est du même niveau, autrement dit de très très haute qualité……Rien que du naturel, de l’élevé sous la mère, du pur Américan root’s déversé direct dans les oras à coup de tubas, de washboards, de contrebasses, d’harmos, de nationals, de ukélélés, de banjos, de mandolines, de trombones, etc….
Un régal, que tu comprends vite pourquoi quand tu lis les blazes et que tu lambines sur les pedigrees et les origines des clients…. Ne dit on pas que le blues puise sa source dans le melting pot de cultures et d’ethnies qui ont fait les USA ? Et bien là on est carrément dans le concret avec Washboard Chaz (chant, washboard) un gars de la Nouvelle Orléans, Steve Garner (guitar, chant, harmo) un gars du Mississippi mais qu’a passé plus d’une décennie au Japon, Bill Streber des Jack Leg Stompers (ukélélé, banjo, guitar, chant, harmo, etc…) qui lui, arrive du Tennessee, Bill Benfield (mandoline, guitar) le rosbif de service nourri au skiffle, Hisa Nakase (contrebasse) du japon, de Brandon Armstrong (tuba, trombone) du Tennessee et Dudley Tardo (drums) du Mississippi……
Avec une telle rondelle, mon nourrin, connaît pas la déprime, lui le bienheureux !!!!
