If nothing else, this is a clear testament to why street musicianship in New Orleans should be encouraged, not banned. This debut album is a fine collection of originals by Augie, who with his band has played New Orleans streets for some years. Augie has a good raw quality to his vocals and plays a mean acoustic rootsy blues guitar. The sound of the band, with the estimable Scott Kirby on piano and Randy Torgerson on harp, is tight, clean and clear, but down and dirty too. In fact, this is the way the blues needs to be played—spare and mean. These guys (and one girl—Lisa Driscoll on washboard) have obviously experienced some livin’ down in the Quarter. (
