The band, The Southern Crescent , was named after a passenger train that is run by Southern Railroads that travels between Washington D.C. and New Orleans. Besides being nicknamed "The Big Easy", New Orleans is also referred to as "The Crescent City" . The music on Red Mountain Records first release Frederick Nighthawk & The Southern Crescent Band (RMR - 106) travels through the south with its special blend of blues and country, dance tunes and ballads, with the old ways being reborn in the new.
With his houserocking piano and vocals driving a stellar band, Frederick Nighthawk’s 2008 CD reissue of his 1987 debut album of ten original songs showcase his unique style, influenced by the sounds of the rural dancehalls of Louisiana, the blues and swing found in the Texas roadhouse honky tonks, and the second line rhythms of Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Grammy Award winning Tex Mex accordionist Flaco Jimenez makes guest appearances on the rocking "Lucky Blues", the heartbreak ballad, "Precious Love", and the dancehall scorcher "Little Flame". Guitarist J.B. Allison burns up the swamp boogie, "Louisiana Red Hot" with his slide guitar, and his "slow hand" blues tear into the soulful sounds of the ballad, "Bringing All My Love To You", the Freddie King inspired Texas blues shuffle "I Can See", and the dancefloor swing favorite "City Lights". The renowned rhythm section of Jimmy Sanchez on drums ( Dr. John, Roy Rogers & The Delta Rhythm Kings), and Steve Evans on bass (Roy Rogers) sit in the pocket, driving the beat on such tunes as "Running Blue" and "So Satisfied", laying down the funky "second line" grooves of "What's You Gonna Do", and creating a rock solid foundation for saxophonist Jeff Ervin's wailing solos,and his outstanding horn arrangements found throughout the album.
This collection of ten songs is upbeat, good times music, great for dancing or listening, for Bar-B-Ques and Hurricane parties, a must for lovers of American roots music!
