This recording of Carter's ASKO Concerto is simply jaw-dropping.  My HE-500/Audio-gd NFB-6 have never sounded so good!

Sweetman with his South Side Groove Kings

SWEETMAN with HIS SOUTH SIDE GROOVE KINGS:
Austin Backalley Blue

 

This is butt-shakin’, tassel-twirlin’ Texas strip joint blues. Sweetman’s raw, in-your-face tenor sax leads a down-and-dirty Austin R&B band (including veterans of the Fabulous Thunderbirds). All-instrumental and startlingly vivid, the kickass electric guitars, trumpet, sax, electric bass, and drums will get your backfield in motion. You’ll hear every detail: the spit in Sweetman’s mouthpiece, the dirt under the guitarist’s fingernails, and the delicate sound of cotton panties as they fall to the floor. A Bound For Sound Recording of MeritStereophile’s Wes Phillips proclaims “The dynamic shadings are impressive… the sound remains articulate and focused…it could corrupt a bishop.” Includes R&B hits by King Curtis, Magic Sam and Jimmy Forrest. (#02752)

Michael Sweetman, tenor sax 
Bill Warfield, trumpet 

Jack Morgan, guitar 
Mark Korpi, guitar

The lights are dim red and blue, but even if they were bright tungsten lamps, they still wouldn't cut through smoke so thick it's discolored the drab walls. Up on the stage, a weather-beaten-looking woman wearing a feather boa, a peacock tattoo and nothing else gyrates half-heartedly, slithering around a pole. A big guy with Bo Diddley sunglasses on sits at the bar with an unlit cigar. He hasn't moved in months. The liquor is watered down before it even hits the ice in the glass. And the leader of the house band in this eternally-unchanging, open-every-night den of iniquity? It's Austin saxophonist Sweetman, purring sleazy, down-home blues out of his sax. This is the real bump-and-grind stuff, taking cues from slinky, early instrumental R&B of King Curtis, Ike Quebec, Gene Ammons and after-hours organ trios of yore. Ambience, heart, groove call it what you will, but it oozes from every note played by Sweetman and his mates. Featuring alumni of such honky-tonk hell raisers as the Fabulous Thunderbirds, John Mooney and Evan John's H-Bombs, Sweetman's cast of characters play like they're trapped in the life described above and have no desire to leave. Sweetman himself got his chops on the Baltimore bar circuit, then paid dues playing with Luther "Guitar" Johnson and Texas bluesman Buddy Ace. Listening to the CD, you can picture the tangled Christmas lights, the tattered instrument cases, the scuffed and stitched boots of the musicians. Check their version of Harlem Nocturne, which turns the sax staple into a quasi-surf boogaloo, or Tyrone's Night Out, Jest Smoochin' and the title track. While the patrons lean and slouch at their tables and nurse their watery drinks, the band kicks off another set with a late-'50s R&B nugget, Housewarming. Outside the neon blinks like a beacon luring lost souls in from the night.

June 1995
