Fiona's Comments

It must be funky Friday, this one will curl the corners of that slit on your face. Get Peckish.

About the Album

The second-line groover “Uncle Peck” is punctuated by a potent horn section of trumpeter Faddis, bari ace Smulyan, trombonist Hall and tenor saxophonist Lalama. Catch Faddis’ expressive plunger solo and Marengo’s barrelhouse piano playing on this New Orleans flavored number. The Louisiana-born pan player Wooton switches to snare on this infectious tune to cop an authentic N’awlins second-line feel. “My mother was from New Orleans,” says the vibist-leader. “My father was a northern guy who stole her away from the south and took her to a life in New Jersey. We visited relatives in New Orleans frequently when I was growing up. My Uncle Peck, whose actual name was Preston, would go on for hours telling me, as a young boy, all about Mardi Gras. This song springs from these vivid memories and tries to capture some of the spirit of the place that always lived within my mom.”
