Walter Wolfman Washington and The Roadmasters
Howlin' LIVE at dba, New Orleans
The iconic New Orleans band issues its first sanctioned LIVE release. 13 cuts representing fan favorites that showcase the diversity of the bands material. By demand of the regular fans, that see him weekly at dba nightclub on Frenchmen Street, this release includes fixtures of the set, many of which have been out of print for years. "Recording Live at dba is a natural — It's like our home venue" said Roadmasters' bassist Jack Cruz. This 24 track venue recording was mixed by multi Grammy and multi Platinum recording engineer, Dave Farrell (Ultrasonic Studio, Gatemouth Brown, Harry Connick Jr., Arron Neville).
To attempt to review Walters career here would be almost pointless. Best known to fronting his own band since the 1960s and his now fabled stent with The Tan Canary, Johnny Adams. A brief web search will reveal on and off gigs with Lee Dorsey and The Emperor of The Universe, Ernie K-Doe.
While Walter has over a dozen records under his name, this is only his second release in 13 years. Some of his most fruitful efforts have been with The Roadmasters, but this is the first time they have shared the billing on the record - as this is a LIVE recording.
