Entertainment Reviews:

Down Beat - p.68
3 stars out of 5 -- "The new release has as its centerpiece four songs about 'bad mother' Katrina that fascinate for his frayed singing voice."
Dirty Linen - p.90
"With help from such guests as keyboardist Judson Nielson, rapper Jesse Baumler, and Dr. John on Hammond B-3 organ, he keeps things as funky and soulful as ever."
Living Blues - p.61
"[A] wonderfully inspiring return to form....Washington's New Orleans R&B funk grooves are part of the sound, but his guitar always reminds us that blues is the core."

Although usually classified as a blues musician, Walter "Wolfman" Washington draws inspiration equally from funk, soul, R&B, and the rootsy sounds of his native New Orleans. DOIN' THE FUNKY THING (2008), Washington's first studio album in 10 years, does not advertise falsely. Each of the disc's 10 tracks pulses with hip-shaking energy, thanks not only to Washington's gravelly, down-home vocals and tasteful guitar licks, but to the hot horn arrangements and gospel-flavored back-up vocals that give this set its muscle. Packed with solid grooves and outstanding performances, DOIN' THE FUNKY THING drips with the kind of soul only a veteran like the Wolfman can manage.
