Picks and Pans Review: The Neville Brothers: Live at Tipitinas

B+

If critical acclaim translated into commercial popularity, the Nevilles would be performing only in mammoth stadiums. But these incomparably soulful siblings are still regulars at Tipitinas, a small club in their native New Orleans.

Taped in March, this hour consists of a rhythm-rich diet of tasty funk. The sound quality isn't great—Cyril's microphone isn't even turned on in the beginning. But listen to "Hey Pocky Way/Walk on Gilded Splinters," "Brother Jake" and other songs and see if you don't succumb to the bayou voodoo the Nevilles do so well.
