Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
