Jon Cleary & The Absolute Monster Gentlemen
Fat Tuesday Eve! Big Easy funk savant – a virtuosic keyboardist, profoundly expressive vocalist, and distinctive songwriter.
Plus: Jon Carroll

New Orleans’ Jon Cleary is a triple threat—with a salty-sweet voice, masterful piano skills, and a knack for stacking infectious grooves with melodic hooks and sharp lyrics. The anchor of Bonnie Raitt’s band, he is a funky piano wizard with a standout soulful voice who embodies decades of Crescent City music magic, continuing the tradition of R&B giants like Professor Longhair, Dr. John, and Allen Toussaint.  He has toured with John Scofield, Bonnie Raitt, Ryan Adams and Eric Burdon among others. “Jazz, funk, rhythm and blues and soul,” goes the chorus to “Bringing Back the Home,” the emotional linchpin of his new album GoGo Juice/ It’s a catalog of Mr. Cleary’s core interests, as a singer-songwriter and pianist in tune with the pulse of New Orleans, his adopted hometown. It's his eighth album, another expert mix of strutting party-starters and beseeching soul anthems sung in an agreeably raspy voice with personnel drawn from a top tier of New Orleans talent.
