This traditional New Orleans number is a great example of the pan-Caribbean influences in New Orleans Traditional Jazz which extended into the pop music of the 50s and 60s. ‘Tootie Ma Was A Big Fine Thing’ has a pretty standard Blues call and response frame but is laid on top of the ‘New Orleans Mambo’ rhythm — incorporating claves from Latin America and a touch of Calypso from the Caribbean. A great booty shaker!
