RHR257 - Vicksburg Blues - Pat Donohue & Butch Thompson

Vicksburg Blues

"A masterful guitarist and talented singer-songwriter... Donohue is a natural entertainer." - Los Angeles Times

"Thompson is internationally acclaimed as perhaps the finest interpreter of early jazz piano." - Offbeat

At its best, music should relax your mind, massage your soul and make you feel good. Vicksburg Blues from Pat Donohue & Butch Thompson is music at its best. The dynamic duo creates an album that harkens back to the great albums of yesteryear, mixing Delta blues, ragtime and Dixieland jazz.

As if pulled from the backdrop of a Woody Allen movie, this stunning 19-track album features songs by Leroy Carr, Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, Blind Blake and Butch's mentor--blues legend Little Brother Montgomery. Woven in seamlessly with five fantastic originals and one that Butch Thompson co-wrote with Montgomery ("Sunday Rag"), these tunes sound both fresh and familiar, showcasing Butch and Pat's first-rate musicianship and their deep love and respect for the tradition of the blues.

Pat Donohue digs deep on the vocals, singing uncommonly soulful versions of "Vicksburg Blues" and "219 Blues" and a very playful version of "Papa's on the Housetop." Backed up by Butch Thompson's nuanced piano playing and haunting clarinet solos and Pat's own hot guitar licks, Vicksburg Blues is a new American blues classic that speaks to all generations.
