Part of the fabric of the New Orleans sound was ripped free on this day back in 2009 when Eddie Bo passed. We could spend hours writing about Mr Bo but suffice to say he was one of the cornerstones of New Orleans r&b and his passing left a hole in our town’s music scene that will never be filled.
He had dozens of instant classics but if you want to feel quintessential Bo put on his collaboration with Oliver “Nookie Boy” Morgan, “Roll Call”
Don’t do it if you’re not prepared to jump up and start dancing or buckjumping like a wild woman. It’s totally infectious.
