Cannery Row – self-titled

by • December 1, 2017 • Album Reviews496

The members of this trio are also all members of Gary Comeau & the Voodoo All Stars. However, they work here as equals with each musician contributing original songs. The spirit of New Orleans runs through the music, Professor Longhair anyone? But there are also strains of Delta and Memphis blues along with touches of Latin and Jazz.

These influences also show up everywhere in New Orleans, sot that gets into an all night argument about who influenced who. Four songs by Comeau who also plays piano, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and banjo. Four from Tim Hearsey, who contributes slide/acoustic guitar and two from Chris “the wrist” Nordquist who plays drums, percussion and washboard. All three musicians contribute vocals.
