Album Description

"Don't You Feel My Leg" is Maria Muldaur's 41st album, and her first studio album in six years. Co-produced with Jacques de Latour, and recorded in New Orleans, the album features some of NOLA’s finest “first-call” musicians. Muldaur pays tribute the Naughty Bawdy Blues of Blue Lu Barker in this stunning set. Blue Lu Barker, a leading female blues vocalist in the 30s and 40s, recorded dozens of blues and jazz releases on Decca, Apollo, and Capitol Records, and was cited by Billie Holiday as her biggest influence. At the suggestion of Dr. John, Barker's composition "Don't You Feel My Leg," was recorded and made it onto Muldaur's self-titled solo debut in 1973, which spawned the million-seller hit, "Midnight At The Oasis." Thus began a friendship between these artists that continued until Blue Lu Barker's death in 1998. In 2016, Muldaur was invited to do a tribute to Blue Lu at the Danny Barker festival in New Orleans, which inspired the creation of this album. Muldaur is a multiple Grammy and Blue Music award nominee, and remains a preeminent interpreter of roots music.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
