DEACON JOHN'S JUMP BLUES: MUSIC FROM THE FILM
"Deacon John's Jump Blues assembles a New Orleans big band, both venerable and young, behind Deacon John Moore, a longtime studio guitarist who can sing as well as the people he backed. . . the music, from the 1950's and 1960's, still puts the New Orleans roll in rock 'n' roll."
--Jon Pareles, New York Times
"A collection of horn-stoked jump blues and R&B balanced by soul-drenched ballads and a touch of gospel."
--Nick Cristiano, Philadelphia Inquirer
"The ageless Zion Harmonizers, the flirty, tasty Teedy Boutte' and a tight, swinging horn section make this one of the most enjoyable album treats of the year."
--Daniel Gewertz, Boston Herald
"Far and away, the best CD I've heard this year. . . ."
--Buddy Blue, The San Diego Union-Tribune
