Phil Berkowitz Plays...Louis' Blues

Dirty Cat Records/2005

In 2004, Phil set out to record the music of Louis Jordan (legendary vocalist, saxophone player, and band leader). He teamed up with Danny Caron, who played guitar and co-produced the recording. Phil recruited three musicians from the Bay Area sextet Stompy Jones, a widely acclaimed swing group with an extensive knowledge of Jordan’s vast discography. The end result is a uniquely enjoyable mixture of 12 tracks of both popular & obscure Louis Jordan songs that stylistically cover every era of his long career. In place of a horn section, Phil takes on these arrangements and solos with his harmonica. This highly spirited performance not only re-introduces Jordan’s music to a whole new audience, but also channels the high energy and witty charm that made Jordan so famous and inspirational to those who were familiar with him.
