Tipitina

MySpace Layouts MySpace Codes MySpace Backgrounds It doesn’t often happen, and that’s putting it mildly. When was the last time a bundle of youthful energy, polished musicianship and originality like Tipitina landed on the mat unannounced? It’s quite disconcerting. ‘Where did this suddenly come from?’ you ask. The prosaic reply is Preston, Lancs, but the real answer is New Orleans and a few other hot spots along the way; from juke joints and dance halls, warm nights and windy streets, good times remembered and a few bad moments best forgotten. In short, to borrow Hoagy Carmichael’s handy list of life-enhancing ingredients, it comes from ‘swing, boogie-woogie and jive’ - not forgetting the blues and even gospel music

”I found the album hugely entertaining and I would hope that Tipitina do very well out of it.” - Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2

“Vocalist Debbie Jones is as sultry as a night downtown, while Justin Randall's piano boogies like there's no tomorrow.” - JD, Sunday Mercury Newspaper

“Debbie Jones, has a rich, soulful and very expressive voice, well suited to the material. The authentic-sounding soloing of Justin Randall shows a mastery of the various New Orleans piano styles and there is also invigorating solo input from the saxist and guitarist.” Bob Weir, Jazz Journal

“...the striking voice of Debbie Jones dominates, but special mention must be made too of moments such as Justin Randall’s boogie tour de force on the fast rocking Breaking Up The House.” Chris Yates, Jazz Rag Magazine
