Born a poor boy in Cleveland, Ohio in 1968, Matthew started playing the blues, and in a matter of years, became a living "blues genius". 350 pounds of nothing but the blues - he is the "Big Boy" of the Blues (Most guitars have only been tested on 250 pounds and below.) Incredible blues vocals, emotional guitar work, all with a great backing band (The Curtis King Band), and 6 original tracks. Mr. Cooper has worked with such greats as Curtis King, Eric "The Jackhammer", Jonah "Hi Tone" and even Dogbone Wang. When playing live, he makes heads turn and jaws drop. When playing in the studio, his raw talent as a singer and guitar player shine through like magic. (http://dwmmusic.com/)

Omar & The Howlers 1998 Swing Land









Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 48000
Time: 00:46:09
Size: 105,57 MB

United States

Review by Michael G. Nastos

One doesn't recall Omar & the Howlers as a straight-out jump blues combo, but it looks as if they're on the bandwagon with this CD. Omar Dykes has a squirrelly voice that falls between sandpaper gruff and churlish shouting, a cross twixt Dr. John and Howlin' Wolf. Help from the capable Howlers, big-time backup from saxophonists David "Fathead" Newman and Mark "Kaz" Kazanoff and harmonica whiz Gary Primich on three cuts gives Omar, who also plays guitar throughout, all the support and inspiration he needs.

As much as the band does predictably jump and swing hard on the majority of these cuts, there's always a surprise. Obvious choices like "Hit the Road Jack," "Just Like a Woman," and the hardest swinger "So Mean to Me" come naturally. Taj Mahal's loping "Going up to the Country" is one that fits Omar's range perfectly, and he really cops "the Wolf" on "Yellow Coat." The most daring move is his singing the Oscar Brown, Jr. lyrics to Nat Adderley's "Work Song" with the saxophonists trading licks nicely, or Charles Brown's lesser-known upbeat flag-waver "That's Your Daddy Yaddy-O." An instrumental version of the famous Albert Collins number "Don't Lose Your Cool" really cooks, Omar and Derek O'Brien on electric six strings working out. And they do return to their straight blues base on the final two cuts, Primich standing up firmly and wailing on "One Room Country Shack," the band getting down right dirty and nasty on "Alligator Wine."

"Swing Land" has lots of teeth and the bite to match. It's sincere, authentic, well played, and represents better than a lot of the phony swing bands copying songs and well-worn riffs.

Review by Bill Dahl

Young Texas guitarist Anson Funderburgh and veteran harpist Sam Myers got along so well during the making of this fine set that they got their act together and took it on the road. Happily, it remains there, with Myers deftly fronting Funderburgh's Rockets. Myers's booming voice and rocking harp and Funderburgh's crisp, tradition-laden lead guitar mesh beautifully here -- the disc features brash remakes of Myers's past triumphs "My Love Is Here to Stay" and "Poor Little Angel Child" and a host of fresh titles.

Only recently discovered Al Cook, now have become a great fan of his. Down in Boogie Alley is a really great CD, his music comes from the heart, not pretentious in any way, just straight from the hip blues. I really go for his piano style being a piano player myself. Others that have heard the CD all remark "who is this guy". This is a purchase that ranks near the top of my collection. To use an Aussie phrase it goes "straight to the pool room". (Ross Priddle)

Stumbled upon Bob Nelson quite by accident after doing a search for Chicago style blues. After hearing the first 20 seconds, I knew I'd found something special! After the third track, I paid my money down and have been diggin' the authentic Chicago blues style shuffle that can only be found in the juke joints and bars that smell of stale beer and dark places. The band is tight and can shuffle like nobodies business! Bob's harp work and voice can be found in some dirty gas station down south selling BBQ that's been known to blind small animals. His swamp style can be found in the mix of Chicago style blues and uptempo shuffles that will have your feet to movin'. This CD is a no brainer and is an absolute must have for real blues lovers!
