Eddie Bo was a New Orleans musical legend who recorded with anyone who was ready to go to work. His prolific career included work with just about every musician in the Big Easy. During the 1950's Eddie led a group of stellar New Orleans sidemen around the country backing such vocalists as Ruth Brown, Joe Turner, Lloyd Price, Smiley Lewis, Earl King, the Wild Magnolia Indians, Algiers Brass Band, Treme Brass Band, the late Johnny Adams and the Platters.
On this tune, he conjures up a bit of gris-gris and Cuban funk. Great track.
