Posts in the JAZZ category

Louisiana Red Hot Records is proud to welcome Offbeat Magazine’s 2017 Best Female Vocalist, Erica Falls to its roster.

Erica has recorded and performed with the likes of Grammy Award Winning Allen Toussaint, Joe Sample, Dr. John, Sting, No Doubt, Jennifer Hudson and John Fogerty. On her debut CD “ME, MYSELF AND MUSIC” her singing, arrangements, and songwriting are on full display. She was also handpicked by Lee Daniels himself for the lead singing role in his critically acclaimed feature film “The Butler.”

While touring with the nationally known funk band Galactic, Falls is writing and recording her sophomore project titled “Vintage Soul”. “Music is a universal healer no matter the language barrier and I am privileged to be one of its messengers.”

Already a hometown triumph, her latest release “HomeGrown” will be re-introduced to national markets by Louisiana Red Hot Records in the summer of 2018 in anticipation of a new studio release.

“I listen to her when I want to be high on my soul.” – Lilli Lewis fan

Set against the buoyant backdrop of the New Orleans bon vivant, “The Henderson Sessions” is an exquisitely intimate self-portrait with Lilli Lewis’s vocals set to the barest of piano accompaniment. The record was co-produced by Lewis alongside James “Jimbo” Walsh (HBO’s Treme) and Mark Bingham (Allen Ginsberg, REM, Sun-Ra) at a studio built in a country home in Henderson, LA that was once used as refuge for Walsh’s musical community after Hurricane Katrina. When the three teamed up to demo songs for a full band album, they found the songs had something useful to say in their most raw, earnest, and primitive incarnation.

​Award-winning singer/songwriter Lilli Lewis grew up on a dirt road on the outskirts of Athens, GA. She is the daughter of a southern minister and a Chicago reared civil rights activist, and her bent towards social justice is reflected in her music and stage show. The prolific writer, composer, pianist, and producer has been composing music since she started playing piano at the age of three. Lewis is known for her powerful vocals and progressive message. The classically trained “folk-rock diva” is a sought after featured performer on main stages across the United States and abroad. In 2017, feminist folk trio The Malvinas recorded Lilli’s “O, Let Your Light Shine Bright” (Louisiana Red Hot, 2016) on God Bless the Grass (Soona Songs). Lewis made New Orleans her home in 2013 where she performs regularly as a soloist and with her acoustic soul orchestra, The Lilli Lewis Project (LLP). Lewis is also a current member of sousaphone master Kirk Joseph’s Backyard Groove.

Corey Henry - Lapeitah“The Next Funk Superstar from New Orleans”

The former leader of the Little Rascals Brass band turned favorite lead player for New Orleans jam band phenom Galactic, Corey Henry stepping out with Lapeitah, his national debut release from Louisiana Red Hot Records. Another outstanding Treme trombonist in the tradition of Trombone Shorty and Glen David Andrews, the Treme Funktet frontman is himself a brass band funk master with a rich pedigree that reads like a New Orleans royal coat of arms. While Corey’s original bands have created many of the most popular songs on the second line scene, on Lapeitah, Henry teams up with Brooklyn based Pimps of Joytime producer Brian J to breathe new life into the notoriously infectious brass/funk sound.

With guest appearances from heavy hitters like Corey Glover from Living Colour and Greg Thomas from George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, the album’s thrust lies in its ability to sweep from the broad, epic rock of Jimi Hendrix’s “If 6 Was 9,” to the timeless whoop and holler of the absolute new standard in second-line pride song found in “Baby C’mon,” with push-to- the-edge vocal from Cole Williams. Featuring one of the last known recordings of the late Trumpet Black and a keep-it- in-the- family collaboration with Henry’s daughter Jazz, the album plays like a 6th Ward block party, complete with youthful wit and the aged wisdom of the old guard porch stoopers. Equal parts anthemic and soulful, Lapeitah is most importantly, unbelievably funky.

threeMuses“…one of the most amazing vocalists alive today. He sanctifies, electrifies, hellafies. If you weren’t dancing at this show you were dead.” – Houston Press

On a good night Glen David Andrews is the most charismatic performer in New Orleans. Live at Three Muses perfectly captures one of those entrancing moments from a fiery GDA set of trad jazz, rock, gospel, and funk.
