Shoo Rah - the songs of Irma Thomas and Alan Toussaint

The Mighty Fines and I have been in the studio recording our new CD, titled "Shoo Rah - the songs of Irma Thomas and Alan Toussaint." It's a tribute to the music and genius of the Soul Queen and King of New Orleans and by far our best effort yet. Every number has a great texture, and they're all different.

I sing six of Allen's tunes, Brickyard Blues, Workin' In the Coal Mine, Lipstick Traces, Holy Cow and With You In Mind. Oh, and Shoo-rah. Nancy Wright is featured on seven of Irma's - Ruler of my Heart, I Done Got Over It, You Ain't Hittin' on Nuthin', Take a Look, Look Up, It's Rainin', and In Between Tears. And that's the long tall and short of it.

We're wrapping up the mastering and the CD should be out before Christmas. While you wait, here are two tasty samples.
