In conjunction with London's Jukebox Jam club night, Jazzman brings you regular doses of the wildest, rawest original rhythm and blues of the '50s and early '60s on DJ-friendly collectable 45 rpm format. Linked by a sequential catalog numbering system, each release will also boast a unique label design and title. For Jukebox Jam number four, Dave Bartholomew takes center stage with two solo sides from his prolific spell with Imperial Records, both with some distinctly Latin/Caribbean seasoning, hence the naming of this label, Mambo. You'd be hard-pressed to find a record which sounds more "N'Awlins" than "Shrimp And Gumbo," a raucous percussion-heavy party-starter perfect for any Creole carnival. The flip-side is an earlier recording from Dave, and again one which could only have come from NOLA. The band pull off a sound so authentic, that you'd imagine it must surely be Cuban players responsible. All-in-all, a nice package then, two bags of mambo-Mardi Gras gris-gris sure to keep you safe from all manner of Voodoo ill-will.
