USA Today - Stomp review- P-Stomp fills New Orleans music gap with vintage fun

P-Stomp fills New Orleans music gap with vintage fun
By Edna Gundersen, USA TODAY
NEW ORLEANS — Ponderosa Stomp, the eccentric cousin of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, bridges that event's two weekends with a two-day bonanza of quirky and obscure roots-rock gems.
This year's P-Stomp kicked off Tuesday with dozens of eclectic vintage acts on three stages at the House of Blues. By far, the most eagerly anticipated retro-hip show was helmed by legendary arranger Wardell "the Creole Beethoven" Quezergue, who presented fresh arrangements for revived tunes by Tony Owens, Tammy Lynn, Jean Knight and Mac Rebennack, aka Dr. John.

Knight wowed the crowd with My Toot Toot and 1971 hit Mr. Big Stuff, but it was Rebennack who delivered the coveted rarities, first by playing electric guitar (the instrument he picked up in his teens) and then by unearthing some of his boogie-bopping pre-Night Tripper treasures, including Storm Warning, Carry On and Lights Out (the latter two were released in the late '50s by New Orleans singer Jerry Byrne).

Herb Hardesty, the sax player on many of Fats Domino's recordings, sat in, along with drummer Zigaboo Modeliste of Meters fame.

P-Stomp resumes tonight with, among others, Ronnie Spector,? and the Mysterians, Roky Erickson and the reunion of Texas garage rock band Green Fuz.
