Tonky Honk [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
Welcome reissue for this 1995 recording from vocalist/pianist Diz Watson and his Doormen featuring Big Jay McNeely on saxophone. The Doormen were not just playing recycled R&B, Diz was a connoisseur of the exotic. He had absorbed the essence of New Orleans, and Professor Longhair in particular, and was involved in the transmission of a compelling musical tradition. The music swung, rolled and rocked like crazy. After being unavailable for many years, this release will be welcomed by fans of Jump Blues, Piano Boogie and New Orleans R&B. Ace. 2009.
