Synopsis

Album Description
After nearly a century, blues music, as an art form, continues to thrive and evolve. The musicians who live and play the blues have changed and have grown along with the music. W.C. Spencer is one of these people. The bluescat has amazed audiences in the U.S. and abroad with his own brand of rhythm & blues and this second album for Catscan picks up where the first album Bluescat leaves off. Spencer has accomplished what has been called impossible for singing and playing all of these instruments at one time. Take equal parts of bassist, guitarist, harmonicist, drummer, vocalist, inventor, writer and arranger; add a lot of hard work and you get...Over Time. A collection of blues from old to new, this album traces the journey from acoustic to electric blues and beyond with style and poise. From W.C. Handy?s Atlanta Blues (1915) to Arthur Pettis? Goodboy Blues (1930) to Bell & Jones?s Born Under A Bad Sign (1967) to W.C.?s own Some of the Things I?ve Been Meaning To Do, Talk To Me, The Country Minstrel and I?m Your Monkey (1998); Spencer charts old and new territory alike with his live ensemble renditions of uptown, country, jazzy and original blues. In a genre inhabited by so many fine players, check out a real originator and intrepreter. Like the man said, go ahead and drown yourself - in the blues.
