Singer and harp man Patrick Williams is one of those rare NOLA natives who chose blues over jazz, and as such, he holds down what there is of the Bourbon Street blues scene.
Patrick’s voice is a solid soul-blues instrument, and as you might expect from his gig, he hits all the obvious highlights—“Crossroads,” “Little Wing,” “Rock Me Baby,” “Pride & Joy.” (If you need further ID on those classics, this is not the band for you.) And aside from putting a little extra get-up in Howlin’ Wolf’s deathless “Killing Floor” and accenting the funk in Freddie King’s “Big Leg Woman,” the Xpress doesn’t do anything startling with the material.
