CD Reviews

Plenty of Horns and a Great Big Sound!

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Dick's Hat Band is the brainchild of guitarist Ross Roberts and vocalist/harpist Mike Lawley. The band itself is based in Birmingham Alabama and this is their second release.While the liner notes are very sparse, it does list 62 people as being members of Dick's Hat Family Band, with at least 22 of those listed performing on this CD. Those individuals come in the way of a 7 piece horn section, a quartet of background vocalist and two separate rhythm sections that alternate throughout the CD. The band can loosely be categorized as a jump band in the same vien as the Roomful of Blues. Their sound however, mantains a distinct R&B revue quality with wide ranging material from R&B to Soulful ballads to swing to vintage slow blues. The group is very tight and the music produced is excellent. Highly recommended."

"This Birmingham based band's second album is a true example of what a dynamite horn section can do for the blues."
