John is somewhat of a conduit between the two cities he loves most: New Orleans, where he got his formative training, and New York City, where he’s made his home for the last 20 years. The 4-star review in Downbeat called it “regionally tinctured and laced with a healthy dose of originality and flair.” The New York Times in a glowing review said “Rhythmically it has that New Orleans duality of being full of funk and lighter than air.”
