Bad Influence: Live At The Bad Habits Cafe

 

 

Stereophile applauds, “…a recording to die for…R&B and early rock, but with a totally modern sensibility…one hell of a performance.” These guys take a gritty approach to that magic moment when the blues turned into rock ’n‘ roll. Whop Frazier sings Motown-steeped, bluesy vocals on classics from Wilson Pickett, Buddy Guy, Jimmy Reed. A vividly raw blues/rock quartet led by wailing electric guitar and raunchy tenor sax raise hell behind him. Bound For Sound calls it, “…a howling good time…Recording of Merit.” Includes hits “Woke Up This Morning,” “Sweet Home Chicago,” “Mustang Sally” and “Why I Sing The Blues.”

They aren't a purist band trying to re-create any genre, but rather a modern band that has assimilated all that's come before them and decided to just use the most essential components of that stew. Still not clear? I guess you had to be there.

Which is exactly what this recording feels like. Sprey has recorded the group with uncanny immediacy. There's the obligatory 60Hz hum coming from the PA, which is distinct from the direct sound of the instrumental amplifiers - and when Tash switches on his amp's reverb plate, it doesn't get confused with the real ambience of the room one jot. The recording captures Corder's sax's honks, squeals, and buzzes with startling physicality, and the drums have that snap! Overlaying the dull thunk of their bodies that you never hear on disc.

But the centerpiece, the focus of it all, is Frazier - half intimate soul singer, half blues shouter - who pulls the songs along vocally while pushing them forward with his bouncy, bubbling bass. Tash is everywhere on this recording, a real master of the Stratocaster, and his fills, solos, and rhythm work are electrifying.

This is one hell of a performance, given a recording to die for. I'm taking it with me to CES, where I'll be easy to find. Find a room with a party in it and I'll bet Bad Influence and I will be there. -from QuarterNotes by Wes Phillips

Review by Scott Yanow

Although Dave Grusin is best known as a soundtrack composer and for his jazz-pop recordings, he has always had a great admiration for jazz. This CD (released in a fairly deluxe package) gave Grusin an opportunity to pay tribute to Duke Ellington. He performs ten mostly familiar songs associated with Ellington and wisely features fluegelhornist Clark Terryon five of the selections. Other prominent soloists include tenor saxophonist Pete Christlieb, trombonist George Bohanon, tenor saxophonist Tom Scott (returning to his roots), clarinetist Eddie Daniels (on an orchestrated version of "Mood Indigo"), and pianist Grusin himself. This is a respectful and well-conceived tribute.

Yes, I agree...a friend recommended the band to me about two weeks ago and I already have all of their albums. I never heard of them before that...

I'll be grabbing a copy of Poor Moon as we speak, hopefully I'll dig that as well.
