J. Monque'D has been entertaining audiences in New Orleans since the 60's. He's perfected good time Blues into an epic artform: solid musicianship, and a flair for making those who listen to him feel good. It's no wonder that he was inducted into the the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 1999.
This recording is another great example of why he is so beloved by his fans. The music is tight and like the Cajun / Creole culture that he comes from, it is a fine mixture of a little Blues, a little Jazz and a heapin' helpin' of New Orleans spice thrown in for good measure. J. Monque'D is a singer of the first caliber and his harmonica playing is some of the best to come from the crescent city. ~peter krampert
