Overview

Live at Vaughan's

Since he left New Orleans's seminal second-liners the Rebirth Brass Band, Kermit Ruffins has cut out an enviable niche for himself as an unapologetic update of Louis Armstrong himself, replete with vocal rasp and Dixieland trumpet. But it's no tourist gimmick, as Live at Vaughan's attests. Recorded at the Bywater dive where he's been holding weekly jazz 'n' bbq nights for years, the album captures Kermit the local phenomenon. What was for Armstrong crossover fare ("I've Got the World on a String") is nothing but Nawlins folk music for the Barbecue Swingers, and their rambunctious take on more contemporary (that is, '70s) soul ("If You Want Me to Stay" and "Ooh Child") as well as street-level second line jams bubbles with excitement and charm.
