ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Smokin' Christmas from Smoky Greenwell is a hot blend of New Orleans Jazz tinged with Memphis and Delta Blues and Nashville Country. Features Shane Theriot (Neville Brothers), Willie Weeks (George Harrison, Joan Baez, Michael McDonald), Kim Morrison (Dolly Parton, Roy Orbison), and Johnny Neel (The Allman Brothers, Government Mule), Trombone Shorty and James Andrews of New Orleans and many more.

Smoky Greenwell was born in Michigan on the 4th of July 1951, reared in Delaware, and schooled in Spain and Tennessee. Greenwell learned harmonica in earnest in the mid-1970's by sitting in with the venerable blues masters Furry Lewis, Piano Red and Mose Vincent. Greenwell's career as a first-call sessions player began at Sam Phillips' Sun Studios and led him to take up residence in Nashville in the '80's. Greenwell came to national attention in the band Blues Co-Op (with Allman Brothers guitarist Warren Haynes). It was in Nashville that Greenwell began a long association with Allman Brothers keyboardist, singer and producer Johnny Neel, a partnership that continues to this day.

Greenwell came to New Orleans in 1981 for a 3 year engagement at the now legendary (and defunct) Old Absinthe Bar and has lives there ever since. Since that time he has played with lots of great artists such as Warren Haynes, The last Waltz Band , Johnny Neel, Marc Adams, Eddie Bo, “Big” Al Carson, Brint Anderson, Jumpin' Johnny Sansone, Coco Robicheaux, Willie Lockett, John Carey, Bruce “Sunpie” Barnes, Kermit Venable and BeauBassin, Kipori “Baby Wolf” Woods, Bryan Lee, Timothea, Walter “Wolfman” Washington, Jeremy Lyons, Spencer Bohren, George Porter, Jr., Waylon Thibodeaux, Rockin' Dopsie, Jr., Chubby Carrier, Blue Floyd, Joe Krown, Lenny McDaniel, Irene Sage, Tommy Malone, Tim Green, Jimmy Page, Eugene Carrier, Tom Worrell, and many others in the areas of blues, jazz, Cajun, Zydeco, funk, and country. In addition to fronting his own band, Greenwell is best known as the replacement for Lee Oskar in the seminal band WAR with Harold Brown, BB Dickerson, and Howard Scott.

Greenwell has 10 solo CDs to his credit, all produced in Nashville by Johnny Neel: Smokin (1993), Smoke Alarm (1995), Blowout (1998), and Premium Smoke (2000). Subsequent CD's are Smokin' Classics, " Between Iraq And A Hard Place", "99% Blues", "Smoky Greenwell's New Orleans Blues Jam", and in 2016 "South Louisiana Blues". Smoky Greenwell's CD, "Smokin' Christmas" is a mix of originals and holiday standards featuring notable guest musicians from Nashville and New Orleans.

Christmas can be fun again
A really Smokin' Christmas will come your way if you listen to this CD. Real up-tempo and bluesy, but what is more important: in this world that sometimes leaves us without a reason to laugh it picks you up and makes you glad your alive. I really must say this is maybe the one and only Christmas record I play outside the season... If you like blues and wanna feel fine this is a must have! Smoky, what will be next?

rockin' New Orleans style Christmas album
Excellent Christmas collection featuring tasty blues harp of Smoky Greenwell. He is accompanied by excellent musicians from Neville Bros., Allman Bros. The tunes are well arranged and produced. His harmonica playing is very tasteful, not overdone, other soloists are equally talented. A first rate album that stands on its own.
