4.5 superbRobbit | May 26th 16

A swinging gumbo of Jazz, Blues & R&B topped off with Louis' playful, almost comedic vocals. The opening medley ("Just A Gigolo"/"I Ain't Got Nobody") should be instantly recognizable to most people, thanks in large part to David Lee Roth's 1986 hit cover version. It makes sense that a "fun" guy like David would want to pay tribute to someone as entertaining and Louis Prima. Although the music is rooted in New Orleans Jazz and R&B music, many songs swing so hard it could easily sit alongside early rock & roll. I'm also impressed with the variety of ideas and tempos which keep this party hopping from beginning to end. Favorite songs: "Just A Gigolo"/"I Ain't Got Nobody", "The Lip" and "Jump, Jive & Wail".
