Guys like Tab Benoit and Kenny Neal are testament that the blues are
still alive and kickin' in South Louisiana. But when it comes to making
the blues come alive in the bayou country, those guys have their match
in a sixty-two year old blind white guy from Wisconsin. That guy with
the tall black hat, Wayfarers and gray chin beard is Bryan Lee.

The man known as "The Braille Blues Daddy" started out playing for
Midwest crowds at an early age (he opened for Bill Haley & The
Comets at fifteen), but fell in love with New Orleans and moved to
there in the early eighties. He's been a fixture of the French Quarter
ever since. While Lee can't see, he can sing the blues soulfully and
earnestly. His guitar brings the Chicago styled blues of Luther
Allison, as well as Albert King and Albert Collins, down to the
Crescent City.

I was introduced to the joyful music of Lee via his definitive live
records Live at the Old Absinthe House Bar, both the Friday and
Saturday night versions. It's easy to tell from this record that he has
a fantastic rapport with his audience and his no-nonsense brand of
blues is aimed squarely at giving his listeners the opposite of the
blues. Indeed, even his studio records sound like as if he is
performing for a crowd and intending to give them more than their
money's worth, and openly encouraging his band along the way. And his
latest one, Katrina Was Her Name, is no exception.

Virtually all the prominent Louisiana musicians have literally put
their reaction to the tragic hurricane devastation of August 29, 2005
on record. Lee was not about to ignore it, either. The CD sleeve
contains some poignant photographs of the aftermath and Lee was moved
to write a song about it (more on this later).

Just as he did for the last go around, 2002's Six String Therapy, Lee
employed Duke Robillard to produce it. Robillard, the versatile blues
guitarist of Roomful Of Blues and The Fabulous Thunderbirds fame,
allows Lee's various sides to come to the forefront on this record.
Whether it's Delta acoustic blues, jump blues, dirty electric blues, or
creole-styled r&b, Lee gives it all the same dedication and

For this release, Lee's band consists of Bruce Katz on keyboards, Brent
Johnson on second guitar, John Packer on acoustic bass (or Jim Mitchell
on electric bass) and John Perkins on drums. In particular, Katz, an
alum of Ronnie Earl's band, is a real treat to have on this record.
He's a master at both the blues and jazz forms on piano and organ and
easily adapts to Lee's stylistic change-ups.
