Togged to the Bricks

by Lee Pons

According to Lee Pons, in Cab Calloway speak, “Togged to the Bricks” meant “dressed to the nines” or dressed to kill. On this new CD, Lee’s piano certainly kills. The production is sparse, but the sound is huge even though there are only piano and vocals. If you walked into a club, sat down and closed your eyes you might think you were hearing Jelly Roll Morton at the piano but when the vocals came, you would expect to see Leon Russell instead. Then you open your eyes and there sits Lee Pons. For those of you unfamiliar with Lee Pons’ work, here is a brief history. Born in New Orleans and classically trained at Juilliard, he has pursued mostly New Orleans flavored music. His playing is deft, rollicking, and powerful. His vocals are like a Leon Russell and Husky Burnette stew: simmering, then the explosion of goodness, leaving you wanting more. He has issued a number of discs previously, including “Big Boogie Voodoo” and “Strides N Rags”. Put simply, he is a modern master.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The Music of Lee Pons is where virtuosity meets rollicking good times; where painful attention to technique smacks into joyful abandon; and where Liberace comes to Bike Night on Beale Street. His tattoos, top hat, and teasing flirtatiousness are the ways he distracts you from the seriousness with which he takes his art form. For an artist equally at home in a symphony hall or in heavy metal leathers, it means something that Lee Pons has chosen The Blues as his form of expression"
Stacy Jeffress, Blues Revue Magazine, American Blues Scene
