(Cornelius Chapel) 10 tracks On June 7, 2019, Slim, Little Freddie King and drummer Ardie Dean entered a studio called The Parlor in their hometown of New Orleans. The session lasted just four hours with Reginald Nicholas and Dean as producers. The result is a master class in deep, soulful blues.
Slim's and King's guitars interweave between Dean's mastery of the drums to create a driving boogie with Slim's soothing, John Lee Hooker-like vocals spilling over.
Cornelius Chapel Records has partnered with the Music Maker Relief Foundation for this record. It is affectionately titled "The Parlor" to immortalize where it was originally recorded. Post production and the perfect amount of bass, organ and piano come from Matt Patton (Drive-By Truckers), Dexateens (Dial Back Sound) Jimbo Mathus (Squirrel Nut Zippers, Mississippi Blues Legend).
The final product is an instant classic, with Little Freddie King even taking lead vocals on "Freddie's VooDoo Boogie." Pearl Rachinsky Moreland (Pearl JR) provided the artwork for the album.
