Mitch Woods A TIP O’ THE HAT TO FATS

A Tip o’ The Hat To Fats
Blind Pig/The Orchard

Hey Hep-Cats! Let The Good Times Roll Again.

While the album title is genuinely apt; I kind think it’s touch misleading too; as while New Yorker Mitch Woods and his Rocket 88 band do play in the style of Fats Domino on this scintillating ‘live set’, there’s also one helluva lot more to this band than just that being any type of covers band.
In fact what these Hep-cats remind me of more than anything else is
the legendary Louis Jordan who begat the wonderful Jumpin’ Jive album that Joe Jackson recorded donkeys years ago.
Woods’ is everything you’d expect from a bandleader; ever the showman in his introductions and he has a monstrous voice which is just perfect for adding spice to old staples like Jambalaya, Walkin’ To New Orleans and Blue Monday; but it’s Woods’ own songs that really make this set come alive.
Opening track Solid Gold Cadillac is an absolute barnstormer and the swinging Mambo Mojo too are guaranteed to get even guys like me with two left feet onto the dancefloor.
This isn’t just for the dancers; as Mitch and Rocket 88 produce Good Time Music Deluxe that will have with Blues and Jazz aficionados drooling over some of the solos from these amazing players.
It’s not been easy choosing a Favourite Track as every time I play the album I just get drawn into the fun coming out of the speakers; the band’s signature tune Rocket 88 is as red hot a rocker as I’ve heard in years; but I’m going to pick their sizzling rendition of House of Blue Lights which is certainly a case of keeping the best ’til last!
What’s not to like? If this music doesn’t stir your soul, heart and most importantly feet then you don’t like music!
