'Cornbread'By Cornbread

Soulard Blues Band – In The SoulyardSoulard Blues Band – In The Soulyard
{1995 | King Solomon Records}

The Soulard Blues Band has been around for over twenty-five years and produced nine recordings, Soulyard is their fifth. Soulyard only has nine tracks yet is a good combination of swing blues with hints of jazz on a couple of songs. The vocals dominate the songs, there is just enough horn without overpowering or being too horny. Not a bad CD, the guitar is great, would’ve liked more…


1. You Upset Me Baby (B.B. King) – good vocal and blues guitar
2. Feel So Bad – I liked the harmonica/sax solo near the end of the song
3. Harlem Nocturne – this is a mellow jazzy instrumental piece featuring their horn player Brian Casserly who also performs vocals on the other songs
4. Mondo Elvis – not sure what a Mondo Elvis is but I liked this song a lot
5. Stumble – an awesome instrumental version Freddie Kings song with great guitar and harmonica playing, this and Mondo Elvis are my two favorite songs
6. Bad Whiskey – good song, I liked the singing and harmonica, this would be in my top three
7. St. Louis Blues (W.C. Handy) – nice bluesy swing feel, the muted raspy trumpet was right on
8. Murder Man – another jazzy instrumental piece with flavors of sax, blues guitar and harmonica
9. Mr. Donut Blues – crisp, blues guitar late in the song
