The Butanes
12 Frozen Favorites from the Upper Bayou
Haute 1112

A musical tour de force through an assortment of South Louisiana rhythms by the band that backed Crescent City legend Earl King for a dozen years at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and other stages around the world.

My advice: get some fresh boiled crawfish and crack a bottle of Abita, because here you have the soundtrack for your next party.

The Butanes featuring Willie Walker
Long Time Thing
Haute 1111

The Butanes and Willie's third collaboration sidesteps into the blues and contains 16 original tracks. 5 songs feature 10 horns and Michael B. Nelson's stellar big band arrangements. Special guests include 3 Hornheads, Bruce McCabe on various keyboards, Big George Jackson on harp and jazz pianist Mary Louise Knutson swinging hard on the title track.

...strongly recommended to soul fans everywhere.

Phil Wight - Blues & Rhythm magazine (UK)


Willie Walker and the Butanes
Haute 1110

Willie Walker and the Butanes' second collaboration contains 13 original tracks featuring 4 horns, lady background singers and real Hammond organ.

Soul like it used to be done, one part church, one part barbecue, one part groove-dripping sweat.

Mike Elias - Electric Fetus Weekly E-Mailer


Willie Walker and the Butanes
Right Where I Belong
One On One 761955

Willie Walker and the Butanes record 14 original compositions that sound like they could have been from an unreleased Goldwax records session. A horn section and female chorus join with Willie's exceptional vocals on this new recording of the year contender.

It's the kind of album the worst nit-picker can't find one thing wrong with. Except that eventually it's over.
