ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Between 2001 and 2007, the Saturday Nite Fish Fry recorded three albums – Jump, Shout, Rock da House for Radioland/Universal, Rhythm & Soul and Dirt Road Blues for 7 ARTS. Each with a specific theme. “Jump, Shout,” is exactly as it hints at - jump blues, some classic Jay McShann, some low-down Professor Longhair, Charles Brown, Howlin’ Wolf and others. Second up, Rhythm & Soul features the vocals of Brooklyn, New York entertainer Shakura S’Aida. This was a transformational recording for the gifted singer, in that local Toronto DJ Eddie B opened his vault of unheralded recordings of female singers – most with one regional hit under their belt and exposed S’Aida to a wealth of transitional material – leading her to a career as a big-time blues belter. There’s an early Dinah Washington and tour-de-force – “Maybelle’s Blues” to round out the set. Dirt Road Blues explores the blues side of Bob Dylan and soul of Eddie Hinton. But what really makes this pop are the unknowns, the regional hits by singers barely searchable on Google; Jessie Mae, Annisteen Allen, Mary Ann Fisher, Ann Cole, Sheri Washington, and the under-celebrated Ella Johnson.

The players are some of the finest in Canada with mad passion for sitting in the pocket, blues tradition, a bit of soulful jazz and laying in down with authority.
