        Biography

        The Gaturs were not as well known as the Meters and not as minimalist in their take on funk, but like that group they created a distinct sound based on the party atmosphere for which New Orleans is famous. Led by veteran session musician Willie Tee, the Gaturs' jazz-inflected funk and soul only made it to a handful of singles, but did pave the way for Tee's next project -- as bandleader for the festive chants of Mardi Gras Indians the Wild Magnolias. ~ Wade Kergan
