Crescent City Exile – Full CD or Individual Tracks Digital Download
Inspired by the city in which Billy grew up, this 12-song collection is a tribute to the sounds and sights and smells of New Orleans.
It’s a glimpse into the rich and timeless musical history to be experienced there. This CD includes wistful reveries, flat-out rhythm and blues, haunting, melancholy jazz ballads that hearken back to Billie Holliday and the era of torch songs. And, of course, a couple tributes to the great Allen Toussaint, who not only influenced Billy, but personally guided him.
It is a simmering mix of the sounds and styles that make New Orleans the legendary musical spot on the map that has so long captured our imaginations. Ten sparkling original songs take their place in the parade of great New Orleans tunes and satisfy like a big plate of your mama’s etoufee.
