Born out of a weekly residency at uptown New Orleans’ famed Maple Leaf Bar, the Joe Krown Trio features three of the Crescent City’s most revered musicians in playing rhythm and blues with a funky feeling. Hammond B-3 specialist Joe Krown worked for 15 years as keyboardist for Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown. Walter “Wolfman” Washington’s searing and soulful guitar and vocals have been a distinct part of the New Orleans musical hybrid of R&B, funk and the blues since the 1970s. Drummer Russell Batiste, Jr.’s previous SMF appearances with Porter/Batiste/Stoltz, the successor band to the Funky Meters, displayed his incredible rhythmic abilities, which have been sought after by Harry Connick, Jr., Maceo Parker, Champion Jack Dupree and Oteil Burbridge. ”
(The Joe Krown Trio is) … a killer collaboration between three of New Orleans’ greatest players!” -Offbeat
