#33 Luke Winslow-King – You Don’t Know Better Than Me

From out of the great musical cauldron that is New Orleans comes the fine new sound of Luke Winslow-King, a Michigan native who has been feeding on the Big Easy’s cultural gumbo for the last 12 years and is about to unveil the results on debut album The Coming Tide. This here taster, ‘You Don’t Know Better Than Me’, shows off a sound that combines all of the city’s great traditions – the delta-blues, ragtime, gospel and a little jazz. Although its only a little over three minutes long, it’s enough to have our minds drifting back to the bars of Frenchman Street.
