The Cooler Kings


The Cooler Kings 'Looks Like Trouble' Slippery Noodle Sound SNS0003 Indiana has the blues and you can hear some of the best they have to offer with this CD. The Cooler Kings are a straight up blues band that's not only cool, they're red hot. With Stuart Norton on harp and vocals the band couldn't go wrong. This guy not only blows a mean harp, he can sing a mean blues too. The opener, Hey Now Baby, has Stuart laying out a real swingin' groove right from the start, and what a harp sound.

The Cooler Kings 'Looks Like Trouble' Slippery Noodle Sound SNS0003 Indiana has the blues and you can hear some of the best they have to offer with this CD. The Cooler Kings are a straight up blues band that's not only cool, they're red hot. With Stuart Norton on harp and vocals the band couldn't go wrong. This guy not only blows a mean harp, he can sing a mean blues too.

The opener, Hey Now Baby, has Stuart laying out a real swingin' groove right from the start, and what a harp sound. The stops in the middle show you on the first song that this is a tight band. C'mon Baby is the next cut with plenty of harp riffs for us to practice on. Stuart lays 'em out one after another in a medium shuffle that's right up my alley. The absence of harp from Cold Hearted Woman and I've Got Love left me a little chilly but what would you expect from me. Mean Mouth Woman is some low down Roadhouse blues, with Stuart tellin it like it is, harp and all.

The only cover on here, Kokomo Blues, is done real nice in a country groove that's non-stop. With Stuart on harp, guitarist Gordon Bonham really plays it up. The next four songs are harp-less, which will please those non-harpophiles, but left me wanting. Homeless Man is a acoustic number that has a real good nineties feel.

The steel guitar is a nice mix with Stuarts harp licks and the whole song has a good feel for such a sad song. The last two song are also harpless, which as most of you MS readers know knocks on the coveted rating a little. We gave it eight holes. Three more than we would have given had it not been such a great straight-up blues release.

After all, we need to have more than five songs with harp. The rest are great practice anyway and I found a lot to play to. Give it a try. Source: The Cooler Kings Review Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
