Roland Stone, Live on the Creole Queen [REVIEW - Living Blues]

(Orleans OR 2011)

Under his real name (Roland LeBlanc), Roland Stone was a running buddy of Mac Rebennack back in the late 1950s, when they were both New Orleans teenagers with consuming passions for the city's black music. The pianist and singer has reemerged over the last few years, and Live on the Creole Queen is a testimony to his talents. Supported by a crack New Orleans band, Stone works through a library of the city's music, including Dave Bartholomew's Sick and Tired, Eddie Bo's Every Dog Has His Day, Aaron Neville's Waiting at the Station, and Smiley Lewis' Go on Fool. Highly recommended.
