about

„When you think of blues,” Ike Turner once mused, “all you think about is someone crying that their woman’s gone and how bad life is and all that. Why can’t it be something happier? Why can’t it have a beat to which you can do the dances of today?” No sooner said than done. And it's easy! A John Lee Hooker Blues from his early days mixed with the contemporary Latin Nu-Jazz of The Bahama Soul Club, that's it! 
„Never Roam No More“ with excerpts from a 1946 recorded version from Hookers “My First Wife Left Me”. A deeply personal reflection on loosing his wife Maude Mathis. „We love it when he speaks directly to the ‘boys’, the ‘fellas’. It’s fucking hard for men to let down their guard and show vulnerability, but it’s ten times harder with the guys due to the unwritten codes of male bonding behavior in the early 50s.“ So give the guy credit for his honesty, a quality shared by all the truly great blues artists. „No matter what anybody says, it all comes down to the same thing. A man and a woman, a broken heart and a broken home.“ JLH. 
No doubt a special combination of styles to bring a legend to life... call it resurrection shuffle.
