Product Description

Amazon.com

Smokin' Joe Kubek comes out of the same Dallas blues scene that produced similar guitarists Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmie Vaughan, and Anson Funderburgh. Much as Funderburgh teamed up with Sam Myers, Kubek has found an older blues singer, Bnois King, to complement his instrumental licks. Kubek is more of a psychedelic, Stevie Ray-influenced guitarist than Funderburgh, though, and King is more of a smoother, Charles Brown-influenced singer than Myers. That unusual combination of flamboyant fretwork with cool-as-ice crooning gives the Kubek-and-King team its special niche on the Texas blues circuit.

On their third album, "Texas Cadillac," Kubek and King are accompanied only by their new rhythm section of bassist Bobby Chitwood and drummer Ralph Power. The 11 songs are dominated by Chicago blues standards from Little Walter, Willie Dixon, Eddie Taylor, and Jimmy Reed, but Kubek gives the material a Lone Star feel with the sort of stinging, high-pitched guitar fills and loping beats associated with Albert Collins and Freddie King.

Muddy Waters' "Still a Fool," for example, opens with Kubek's reverb-drenched solo, which he decorates with prickly high notes over a lazy, rolling rhythm. The few original tunes are even more Texan in character. On the fast shuffle "No Time," for instance, King's honeyed baritone glides over the beat even as Kubek sprays guitar notes with an impeccable sense of timing. --Geoffrey Himes

I own the first 5 Smokin' Joe Kubek albums and all of them fall into the same category: Brilliance mixed with the ordinary and the awful. When Smokin' Joe has free rain to play the blues, the result is a mind blowing experience. The brilliance generally overcomes the other tracks to make the purchase worthwhile. On this album, tracks like 'Must have missed turn somewhere', 'Seems like a million years', 'TV light' and 'Mean old world' are exceptional and highlight what is good about this band, which is basically Joe's ability to express via his guitar playing.

This was my first Smokin Joe record. Allow me to recommend it to fans of Texas blues, anyone who digs Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughn, or Chris Duarte will really love these guys. B'nois King has an amazing and unusual voice, and Smokin Joe plays guitar in the best, blistering Texas tradition. If you buy one rockin' blues record this year, let this be the one. And by the way, if you get the chance, you MUST see them live!!
