Universally regarded as the Bay Area’s premier New Orleans R&B/boogie band, these highly accomplished musicians will be playing several numbers from their latest CD release, Shoorah Shoorah, a tribute to the genius of the Soul Queen and King of New Orleans, Irma Thomas and Allen Toussaint. This marks the sixth CD release for Blackman, who has accompanied Mac Rebennack (aka Dr. John) and backed up such national acts as The Coasters and The Drifters.
Joining pianist Blackman is saxophonist Nancy Wright (John Lee Hooker, B.B. King, Elvin Bishop), Ken “Snakebite” Jacobs on baritone sax (Neville Brothers, The Band, Temptations, Gatemouth Brown), bassist Bing Nathan (Lavay Smith’s Red Hot Skillet Lickers), and drummer Larry Vann (Martha Reeves, Elvin Bishop, Charles Brown, Buffy Saint-Marie).
