• Tabby THOMAS Meets Lonesome Sundown – Down In Louisiana

Jasmine's latest excursion into the swamp blues sounds of Louisiana concentrates on two of the most popular 'second tier' artists of the genre. Both artists were involved for much of their career with famed Louisiana producer, Jay Miller and although neither artist ever enjoyed a national R&B chart hit, both enjoyed consistent sales and jukebox hits throughout the '50s and '60s.

Tabby Thomas and Lonesome Sundown exuded the New Orleans style probably none more so than Lonesome, he was perhaps the epitome of the swamp blues artists with a recognisable sound full of creative and meaningful lyrics described as 'The sound of the swamp'.

This superb CD from Jasmine is full of the swamp blues classics that no Tabby Thomas or Lonesome Sundown collection would be complete without: 'Hoodoo Party'; ''Popeye' Train'; 'My Home is a Prison'; 'I'm a Mojo Man' and 'Gonna Stick to You Baby'.

Tabby Thomas is survived today by his son, Chris Thomas King who is himself a popular and respected blues musician and actor having prominent roles in the Oscar winning film 'Ray' and the Coen brother's 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?' amongst others.
