FATS DOMINO – Alive and Kickin (2006)
„Alive and Kickin'“ is Fats Domino’s first new release since „Christmas Gumbo“ in 1993. „Fats was looking for a meaningful way to give back to his hometown after Hurricane Katrina,“ said Tipitina’s Foundation co-founder Roland von Kurnatowski. „He made it very clear that he was making this donation to us because he felt it was important to support the Foundation in its efforts to rebuild the New Orleans music community.“ In a scene that played out on television screens around the world, on September 1, 2005, the 77-year-old Domino was rescued from the roof of his flooded home in New Orleans‘ Lower 9th Ward by a Coast Guard helicopter. After spending time in a shelter and apartments in Baton Rouge, the Domino family returned to New Orleans in October to begin rebuilding their home.
„This album is a soulful musical message from Fats to his millions of fans around the world that he, the people of his beloved city of New Orleans, and its vibrant musical community are ‘Alive and Kickin'“ said Bill Taylor, Director of the Tipitina’s Foundation. Eleven of the album’s 13 tracks were recorded over the decade prior to Hurricane Katrina, but the effort took on a renewed sense of urgency for Fats as his hometown has pulled together to rebuild.
