Bob Heffelfinger wrote this review of Joe's first musical release:
Reggae,Troprock, Gulf & Western, Gumbo Rock, and a bit of Country...Steel Drums to Twangy Guitar to Jazz Clarinet...
The Debut CD by the Enigmatic New Orleans Singer/Songwriter
Joe Bennett has it all...Different Ingredients All Combined
Like A Big Pot of Gumbo to Produce a Delicious Offering.
Backed by the Tight Arrangements of his "Pirates of the Vieux Carre," Bennett at times Sounds Like Jimmy Buffett, Dr. John, Jerry Jeff Walker and even Harry Connick, Jr. All in all, This CD is a Delightful mix of his musical styles that Really Show the Range of Joe Bennett's Smokey Voice. God, I LOVE This CD!!!
He's a regular at Margaritaville in the French Quarter and I Guarantee that "FIFTY DOLLAR TREASURE MAP" will be a regular in your CD player!!
