Coco Robicheaux • Louisiana Medicine Man (REVIEW - Blues Access)

In case you weren't aware, there's a lot of strange goings on in the Louisiana bayous, and Coco Robicheaux has seen most of them. With a cigarettes-and-whiskey voice that falls somewhere in the range between Dr. John and Howlin' Wolf, his music covers much the same territory (and then some): stone cold blues, gris-gris, cottonmouth swamp, sweet love, Treme stomp (with the Pinstripe Brass Band) and a little something spiritual. Good medicine. (Orleans)
