Renown Records

The guitarist and composer AJ Crawdaddy has assembled a crack team of musicians for his latest release, Slow Cookin’. The albums features a number of original pieces, and some well chosen covers by the likes of BB King and Lowell Fulson that shows the brass heavy ensemble at their best. The album starts with the lively AJ’s Shuffle, replete with fluid guitar, and the type of brass interjection that made the classic soul songs so popular. The fact that there are so many musicians, and three lead singers on the album means that it doesn’t have the same ensemble on each number, but that is also a strength for the band, allowing each musician some time in the spotlight. The solos are all well integrated into the songs, and organic with the grooves. In terms of blues moods, Cold Cold Feeling by Jessie Mae Robinson is the highlight of the album, but Slow Cookin’ by Endre Tarczy, who also provides piano, bass and guitar is also a fine display of the ensembles talents. This is mainstream blues, with gloss, and high production values, but the musicians are all talented, and it is a good collection of songs and instrumentals.
