F. Poggi Chicken Mambo – ‘Under The Southern Sky’ , it’s the second album by Chicken Mambo. The album introduce to a mature sound arisen from the band’s heavvy live activity. among the most representative pieces there are: “Under The Southern Sky” a beautiful roots ballad written by Fabrizio Poggi (special guest Heggy Vezzano at the guitar), the classical New Orleans tune “Iko Iko”, the country-cajun “Laissez Faire”, a blues version of “Love My Zydeco” by Zachary Richard, very appreciated by its author, “Indian Baby”, an autograph piece by Poggi, and “Tee Ni Nee Ni Nu, by Slim Harpo, which has been the band’s live setlist highlight for many years, very enjoyable also the final triad of songs, all arisen from Poggi’s pen: the shuffle “Hey Louisianne”, the country-style song “Blowin My Blues Away” and the harp tour de force “Mississipi Saxophone”. The album ends with an heart touching medley where there are just piano, harp and vocals, made up of “Amazing Grace”, Lousiana 1927″ by Randy Newman and the traditional “Sitting On The Top Of The World”. Very interesting are also versions of “Tipitina” by Professor Longhair and “Zydeco Boogaloo” by Buckwheat Zydeco.
