"...this was one of the most spectacular evenings of vintage New Orleans R&B one could imagine. . . . Truly a memorable tribute to the greatest music this city has ever produced." --Jeff Hannusch, Offbeat Magazine
"...an exuberant tribute to the trailblazers of jump blues, a dancehall fusion of R&B and big band. The live concert features Dr. John, Allen Toussaint and a 20-piece orchestra reviving music too spirited and substantial to ever go out of style." --Edna Gundersen, USA Today
