Roomful of Blues

That's Right!: Released 2003 Their Alligator debut! Roomful of Blues returns to their blues roots with a vengeance, fashioning dance-happy modern blues fired by world-class musicianship and a strong sense of traditional swing. Blistering guitar and smokin' horns throughout! This recording exudes a tightness, a togetherness, and above all, a shared commitment to and love for the music. From the rocking title tune to the gently but insistently swinging "You're Driving Me Crazy," from the New Orleans jump of "Shame, Shame, Shame" and bayou grease of Eddie Bo's "I'll Keep On Trying" with its Guitar Slim feel, to the hauntingly melodic "Tennessee Woman," from the Big Maybelle "Ocean of Tears" to T-Bone's wry "I Know Your Wig Is Gone," from Little Milton's "I'm Tryin'" to the Bob Tate and Guitar Shorty query, "How Long Will It Last?," the band covers the gamut of blues styles effortlessly. The album ends with a gloriously raucous and distorted nod of the head to Elmore James with "Stranger Blues" a typically Roomful flourish in its stylistic counterpoint to the sophistication of "You're Driving Me Crazy."
