Viola Lee Blues
Originally from Gus Cannon & the Jug Stompers. Ray revives this Memphis blues gem from the 1920’s. Ray Chesna sings and picks his flattop as Paul Carpenter thumps the dog-house bass, Jim Tolles warbles on his violin, and Tom Wolf chews on his harmonica. Sensitive interplay from some very blue gentlemen.
“This song really takes me back to the seventh grade and my first group, a jug band at Holy Rosary Catholic School, Yonkers, New York, 1965.”
