Carlo Ditta is a veteran New Orleans-based producer, label owner and a remarkable singer and songwriter in his own right. Following a stint in NYC where he helmed recordings for acts like Willy DeVille, he returned to New Orleans and began recording the likes of Danny Barker, Mighty Sam McClain, Roland Stone, Little Freddie King, Guitar Slim Jr., Coco Robicheaux, Rockie Charles and the Original Pinstripe Brass Band. Now he’s released an album (his second), where he steps to the front as guitarist and singer; Hungry for Love.
Hungry for Love teams Carlo with handpicked music veterans responsible for some of Southern Louisiana’s most enduring and beloved ‘60s recordings. The album was released on Ditta’s own Orleans Records label May 3rd.
Ditta presents himself and the area’s soulful rhythm-and-blues legacy through five originals, colorful remakes of regional R&B and Funk classics, and imaginative interpretations of traditional songs, drawing on his decades of experience producing amazing albums for some of New Orleans’ most powerful if underappreciated talents.
