RIBS & BRISKET REVUE New Year's Eve at Cornelia Street

RIBS & BRISKET REVUE- for the Grateful Web

Paul Shapiro, saxophone & clarinet; Cilla Owens, vocals; Babi Floyd, vocals; Dan Rosengard, piano; Booker King, bass; Joe Ham, drums

And downstairs in the cabaret what more exhilarating way to bring in the New Year than with Paul Shapiro's fabulous foot-stomping RIBS & BRISKET REVUE,* w/ the incredible Cilla Owens and Babi Floyd on vocals,and Paul's wonderful six-piece band.

Ribs and Brisket's new album Essen is out on Tzadik Records:

This is from Shapiro's fabled "Ribs and Brisket Revue" and it's from the Shapiro who's more of an avant-klezmer vaudevillian than one of the most powerful multicultural saxophonists in New York... In other words, it's the downtown New York jazz version of Jewish novelty maestro Mickey Katz.

Hard blowing, finger-snapping, klezmer-inflected jazz and wailing big city blues that suddenly slips into Yiddish..; Shapiro tips his beret to Slim Gaillard with a couple of his tunes in praise of kosher cuisine, pours soul sauce and reggae beats over Jewish comedy songs and generally rips into things with just the right mix of irreverence and affection... Respect is due to John Zorn's Tzadik label for bringing this unique recording to the world. There really is no one else doing it quite like Shapiro!
