Artist: Little Victor
Title: Boogie All Night
Style: Blues, Rockin’ Blues
Little Victor is an exemplary keeper of the flame for the old school, down home blues. His rowdy, joyous showmanship, larger than life personality, and deep understanding of the fine points of the downhome tradition have made him a popular international festival attraction. And his brilliant collaboration with Louisiana Red on "Back To The Black Bayou" had a world wide impact in the blues, earning many awards and nominations.
This albums finds Little Victor in my hometown of Phoenix, Arizona, utilizing some great musicians to create a beautiful ensemble sound and a great support for Victor's wonderfully "back in the alley" guitar, harmonica, and vocals. I am very proud to call Little Victor my friend, and I am delighted to have a guest slot as a harmonica player on this record, particularly since Victor is an excellent harmonica player and certainly does not need my help. Keep on bopping those blues Little Victor!
Whew! Nobody else is cutting an original barrel house groove like this, friends. Like a Steppin' Razor! No doubt about it: this is new blues composed within the traditional genre: lyrical, snakey, lush, inventive, sleek/swamp/slope head-jive, rang-a tang, blue-gum, blue balls, blue blood. This is the loosest, most esoteric, raunchy, blueses yet from Little Victor... an esteemed artist obviously at the height of his powers as a masterful guitarist, harp player & and singer of extraordinary darkness & witt.. those long, hot days wailing on Beale Street have paid off in Spades for Lil' Victor: he's got the tone, he's got the moan, he's got a black cat bone... look out for your happy home !
