Maria Muldaur "Don't You Feel My Leg" CD Review
Posted on Monday October 15, 2018

Maria Muldaur
“Don’t You Feel My Leg”
The Naughty Bawdy Blues Of Blue Lu Barker
The Last Music Company
By Peter “Blewzzman” Lauro © October 2018

Although “Don’t You Feel My Leg” is Multiple Grammy Award and Blues Music Award nominee Maria Muldaur’s first release on the London based The Last Music Company, it is actually the forty-first release of her career. That number, being far from a record, is nevertheless an impressive number indeed.

Unbeknownst to everyone involved, the seed for this recording could have possibly been planted back in 1973 when Maria was recording her very first solo album.  That’s when Dr. John introduced her to a song called “Don’t You Feel My Leg” which she loved, recorded with him and placed on the self titled “Maria Muldaur” album.  That release also featured “Midnight At The Oasis” and after that, there was no looking back for Maria.

Fast forward some forty-three years and Maria now gets an invitation to put on a concert paying tribute to Blue Lu Barker as part of the newly created Danny Barker Festival held in New Orleans every January.  As the show ended, the awed crowd ultimately led to an overwhelming presence of people at the merch tent, all wanting to purchase the nonexistent CD of what they just heard.  And there you have it, the idea was sprung, the project was put into motion and the fruits of that seed are now available for everyone’s enjoyment.

“Don’t You Feel My Leg”, which was produced by Maria, was recorded in New Orleans and the ensemble of talented musicians backing her on the vocals include: the albums musical director, David Torkanowsky on piano: Herlin Riley on drums and percussion; Chris Adkins on guitar; Roland Guerin on bass; Kevin Lewis and Duke Heitger on trumpet; Roderick Paulin and Tom Fischer on saxophone and clarinet; Eric Trolsen and Charlie Halloran on trombone.  The album contains twelve naughty, bawdy, blues tracks of which eight were written by and/or collaborated on by Blue Lu Barker and her husband Danny Barker.

The album opens with “Georgia Grind” (Allen/Williams).  It’s got that familiar sound that anyone who has ever cruised up and down Bourbon Street will surely recognize.  David on the piano, Duke on the trumpet and Tom on the sax and clarinet are all belting out some of the best Dixieland Jazz you’ll ever hope to hear, and the obviously good time Maria is having being bad, leaves no wonder as to how she was chosen for that festival.  This stuff is right up her alley.

On this track, the horns get bluesy and the blues gets hor……..errr, never mind.  Good lawdy this music’s even making me bawdy.  This is one of the originals and it’s called “Loan Me Your Husband.”  On it, the band is in a slow and sultry groove with some very steamy sax leads by Roderick.  Speaking of steamy, hot damn - Maria’s got my temperature rising.

This original swinger is called “Now You’re Down In The Alley” and it’s actually a song about - and for - dancing…..the kind you do standing up.  With Maria belting out lyrics about the popular dances of the forties, fifties and sixties, the band is all over it with just the right groove for swinging to them all.  This one flat out rips.

He’s good in the saddle; when he mounts, he knows how to rock and he knows just how to bounce; he never gets tired, he knows how to last; he climbs on slow and doesn’t get off fast.  Hopalong Cassidy? Errrrrr, no!  It’s her “Bow Legged Daddy” that Maria’s talking about, and these are just some of the things he does that keep a smile on her face…. amongst other things.  With David, Herlin and Roland already locked into a sweet groove on the piano drums and bass, as soon as Maria gives her “Ohhhh ride me now” cue - Roderick and Eric join and take thinks up a notch with some sharp sax, clarinet and trombone blowin’.          

Maria seems proud of the fact that she’s never had more than three men in her life, but that somewhat admirable statement somehow loses it’s credibility once she says “I’d still have the third one if it wasn’t for his wife”.  That said, it’s man number two - that “Trombone Man Blues” focuses on.  As Maria tells it - Number two played the trombone and he thrilled her with his slide; he could push it back and forth and he could slide it to the side; but when he switched to the tuba, she had to take her things and hide.  As with all these songs, Maria’s sassy, sultry, sensuous and seductive vocal presentation do add intrigue to these innuendos.   Evidently, being proud this song’s about him, Charlie Halloran lives up to his reputation with one hell of a trombone performance.

Here we are, with the song that started it all - “Don’t You Feel My Leg”.  Now I’m a firm believer of “No means no!” and yes, I do understand “What didn’t you understand about no?” means.  Having said that, I’m kinda thinking that Maria really does want you to touch her “plump yet oh so fine, little old leg.”  Featuring every musician in the credits, and on top of their game at that, this one’s a musical masterpiece.

Other tracks on this wonderfully done CD include: “Leave My Man Alone” (White), “Scat Skunk,” “Here’s A Little Girl From Jacksonville,” “Nix On Those Lush Heads,” “A Little Bird Told Me” and “Handy Andy” (Razaf).  Also deserving mention is an eight page very interesting and quite informative booklet insert.

For more on Maria, check her out at http://www.mariamuldaur.com; for more on the label check them out at http://www.lastmusic.co.uk; and should you need a copy of “Don’t You Feel My Leg” for airplay, contact Lisa Best at lisa@lastmusic.co.uk.  Whomever it is you visit or contact please tell them the Blewzzman sent you, but if it’s Maria, also tell her that I said her legs look great on the disc’s back cover.

BTW, please stay tuned for two more upcoming reviews of The Last Music Company’s other new releases - “Ain’t No Lady” by Sister Suzie and “Closing Time” by Chris Youlden & The Slammers.

On this day in music history: October 9, 1961 - “Hit The Road Jack” by Ray Charles hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 2 weeks, also topping the R&B singles chart for 5 weeks on October 2, 1961. Written by Percy Mayfield, it is the sixth R&B chart topper and second pop chart topper for the Albany, GA born musician nicknamed “The Genius”. The song is originally recorded by Mayfield himself as an acapella demo, sending it to Specialty Records executive and producer Art Rupe. The songwriter then plays the song for his friend Ray Charles who likes it immediately and agrees to record it. The track is recorded at Bell Sound Studios in New York City on July 5, 1961, and features Charles duetting with Margie Hendrix of Charles’ female background vocal trio The Raelettes. Released as a single in August of 1961, “Hit The Road Jack” is an immediate smash. Entering the Hot 100 at #55 on September 11, 1961, it rockets to the top of the chart five weeks later. The single wins Charles a Grammy Award for Best Rhythm & Blues Performance in 1962. In later years, the song is used in numerous films, television shows including “Two And A Half Men”, “The Fisher King”, “Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie” and commercials. Rapper MC Lyte also paraphrases the chorus of “Jack” on her song “Paper Thin” in 1988. “Hit The Road Jack” is also inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in 2013.
