In New Orleans, they don’t just play the blues, they

marinate them -- soak them in years of inherited tradition; spice them up with seasonings from various musical

genres; heat them slowly in performances for

appreciative audiences. The result is tunes that borrow

from all kinds of influences. Rooted in the blues, you

could just as easily call the sound that results soul, R&B,

jazz, or gospel. But what it is most of all is New Orleans

music -- made for pleasure and played for the people.

A case in point: The Cluster Lee Powerhouse, is a

regional favorite, playing music festivals from Florida to

Texas and regularly entertaining audiences throughout

the Gulf Coast.

 

This CD was recorded and mastered in the summer of

2005, right before Hurricane Katrina. “My whole studio

and most of my masters got wiped out,” says Gary

Edwards, owner of the Sound of New Orleans label. “But

I happened to have Cluster’s master CD in my briefcase,

which I threw in my van when we evacuated.”

 

After Edwards eventually re-established the label in New

Orleans, he “woke up one morning with the idea that I

wanted to put out this CD as the first one after the flood.”

This CD is a classic example of New Orleans

soul/R&B/jazz/gospel blues, otherwise known simply as

classic New Orleans music.
