On my predawn commute through the swamps and bayous of Southeast Louisiana I chose to listen to one of my newest acquisitions,
the Hugh Laurie CD entitled "Let Them Talk".
Hugh Laurie is the star of the TV show, "House", one of the few programs I
Some recordings were done in NOLA at Piety Street Recording .
Guest appearances include Irma Thomas, Doctor John and Tom Jones. Allen Toussaint conducted and arranged the horns.

I found this CD the perfect companion for driving through a steamy August morning. The selections made me feel like August, if you get my drift.
I am no music critic, but I know what I like. I love this CD. Some of selections that stand out are : St. James Infirmary, After You've Gone (featuring Doctor John),
Swanee River (great boogie woogie piano and fiddle) and Police Dog Blues.
ALL of the guitar work is fantastic. Kudos to Kevin Breit and Greg Leisz.
Here are the rest of the tracks:
