Sonny Landreth

Born in Mississippi, relocated to Lafayette, Louisiana, Sonny Landreth was immersed in the great Swamp-pop and Zydeco music of the area. He picked up a variety of musical styles playing with some of the best musicians on the Louisiana scene, while developing his considerable songwriting skills. One of Sonny's first professional gigs was with Zydeco legend Clifton Chenier. Landreth's guitar capabilities landed him work as a sought-after session musician. He has played on records by John Hiatt, Bonnie Raitt, Zachary Richard, Freddy Fender, John Mayhall, Kenny Loggins, Beausoleill, Junior Wells, Dolly Parton, Maria Muldaur, Allen Toussaint, and Mark Knopfler

John Hiatt: The Eclipse Sessions

Read "The Eclipse Sessions" reviewed by Doug Collette

Since John Hiatt hit his artistic and commercial stride with Bring The Family (A&M, 1987), the most listenable and durable albums of his have been those recorded with a band like the one appearing there (eventually known as Little Village: Ry Cooder, Nick Lowe and Jim Keltner). Offering comparably uniform musicianship in proportionate support of this ...

Peter Novelli: St. Amant Sessions

Read "St. Amant Sessions" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Peter Novelli's St. Amant Sessions smacks of Tab Benoit's The Sea Saint Sessions (Telarc, 2003). For Benoit, the significance of Sea Saint Studios is that they are a NOLA landmark founded by Allen Toussaint. For Novelli, St. Amant, LA is up I-10 between NOLA and Baton Rouge. There, Brignac's Sound Shack resides and this is where, ...

Angelo Santelli: Angelo Santelli

Read "Angelo Santelli" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Floridian Angelo Santelli's debut eponymous recording is a richly mixed bag. An accomplished slide guitarist with associations within the Allman Brothers Band family, Santelli might be taken for granted as a jam-band blues knock off. This is before a first listen something else altogether. On nine disparate original compositions, Santelli reveals a much broader and deeper ...
