ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Luther Kent (born June 23, 1948 is an American blues singer based in New Orleans, Louisiana. Kent is known for a big soulful voice and his big horn-based group Luther Kent & Trick Bag that mixed swinging blues with New Orleans R&B.
In 1948, Luther Kent was born Kent Rowell in New Orleans, Louisiana. As a vocalist, he was influenced by artists such as Bobby Bland, Etta James, and Ray Charles.
Kent began to sing professionally when he was 14, and his first record was released by Montel Records. In 1970, he became the lead singer for a group named Cold Grits. The group was subsequently signed to Ode Records, but their record was never released. Kent joined Blood Sweat & Tears in 1974 and toured with them until the end of that same year. However, he never recorded with the group as he was still bound by contract with Ode Records at the time.
In 1977, Kent released his first solo album World Class on RCS Records recorded in Boulder, Colorado, and at Abbey Road Studios in London. In 1978, Kent and ex-Wayne Cochran musical director, Charlie Brent formed Luther Kent & Trick Bag. The band was active during 1980s and 1990s with 3 CDs under the name.
Kent released a gospel album in 1996 teaming up with John Lee & the Heralds of Christ. The album also featured Allen Toussaint and Pete Fountain. Kent toured Italy in 2006 with Italian blues guitarist Robi Zonca and his band.
Apart from his solo work, Kent also sings as a guest with the traditional jazz group, The Dukes of Dixieland. In 2008 he released "The Bobby Bland Songbook" arranged by legendary New Orleans producer Wardell Quezergue. His latest work is simply called "LUTHER."
