Mambo Sauce

Feb 21, 2020

Mambo Sauce’s inaugural episode, A New Orleans Soul, focuses on three incredible New Orleans pianists/vocalists; the late Ronnie Barron and Henry Roeland Byrd, aka “Professor Longhair”, and still-living legend Mac “Dr. John” Rebenack. Thrown in for good measure is Washington DC treasure, vocalist/drummer-supreme Big Joe Maher, featured along with his stellar pianist Kevin McKendree. The episode also showcases Dr. John playing some amazing guitar solos on Professor Longhair’s masterpiece, Crawfish Fiesta. Justin provides excellent biographies on the artists. This episode captures the soul of New Orleans and Neil Raabe!
