Review

New Orleans musicians have long mixed a diverse laundry list of styles from blues, Latin, pop, swing, jazz, stride piano, mainstream R&B and even a little country into the immediately recognizable gumbo known as New Orleans R&B. This four-disc box from Proper (each of the four discs in Gettin' Funky: The Birth of New Orleans R&B, are available separately as Piano Power, The Pioneers, The Hit Makers and Hip Shakin' Mamas, Crooners and Shouters, are also available as standalone albums) provides 107 tracks from the early pioneers of this feisty, energetic and joyous music, with several selections from, among others, Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, Champion Jack Dupree, Dave Bartholomew, Paul Gayten and Roy Brown. ~ Steve Leggett
