Yockamo All-Stars – “Dew Drop Out” – [Hannibal Records]

What an interesting project – get together some of the best jazz, R&B, brass band, and rock musicians working in New Orleans today (both native and “imported”) and come up with a set of great arrangements of that special Big Sleazy sound – this has done it to a T. Mostly instrumental and in a great deep groove throughout.

This is not a revival project – everything sounds quite fresh, but you will not mistake that New Orleans beat.

Try any track – you won???t be dissapointed.

(Dew Drop Out refers to the now closed nightclub the Dew Drop In – the place just about every black musician on tour since the late 30???s played when in New Orleans – from Ellington to Brown (Chas & James) to Little Richard, as well as locals like Professor Longhair and vocalist Bobby Marchan.)
–Dave Richoux
