Mike Goudreau & The Goodmen Band New CD: Dancing Shoes
Introducing the Goodmen Band: Mike Goudreau, vocalist, guitarist and composer, well known as the leader of “The Boppin Blues Band”, who has produced 11 Jazz & Blues albums since 1993; organist Lorrie Goodman, who produced 3 Jazz albums with “The Organization”; and drummer Stéphane Jetté who has worked with many Montreal Blues artists. This trio is a throwback to a concept that was very popular in the late 50s, 60s and 70s: “The Organ Trio”.
This new CD “Dancing Shoes” presents 15 new songs featuring 14 original compositions co-written by Goodman and Goudreau. Funky grooves à la “Meters/ Maceo Parker”, swing à la “Jimmy Smith, McGriff, McDuff”, full tilt Blues à la Albert King (back in the days when he collaborated with Booker T and Stax Records), ‘’Southern Soul/Gospel” à la Al Green/Otis Reiding, and a few “New Orleans” type grooves, all done in the ‘’Goodmen’’ way.
