  • Jon Cleary, the New Orleans-based multi-instrumentalist and singer, cooks up a batch of funky music on his first Basin Street release. Backed by a small core band and a smattering of guests (including Bonnie Raitt on slide guitar), Cleary delivers hard-hitting urban blues and soul that can bring to mind Tower of Power, Bill Withers, and even a little Steely Dan. His singing can be a bit generic, but his organ and Wurlitzer flourishes are quite tasty, as is the dead-on rhythm guitar of Derwin "Big D" Perkins and the bass-and-drum lock-up of Cornell Williams and Jeffrey "Jellybean" Alexander. ~ David R. Adler
Professional Reviews
JazzTimes (9/02, p.90) - "...An album that grooves infectiously with the unbridled energy of a late-night jam session. Simply put, this album is a delight from start to finish..."

Paste (magazine) - "Combining doo-wop, gospel, the Cuban Son tradition, blues and -- above all -- a heavy dollop of P-Funk bass-quake, Cleary and his band stomp through a dozen tracks that considerably spice up the already-rich N'awlins piano gumbo."
