Distillations Of The Blues - Ted Hefko And the Thousandaires
Ted Hefko and The Thousandaires' latest album, Distillations Of The Blues, sounds like it comes straight out of that favorite speakeasy in your mind. You know, the one in New Orleans that's just around that secret corner from The French Quarter. They've got brass band, the clarinet, the swingin' rhythm section that's guaranteed to put a little jump in your step as you head to the bar. But the real showcase is Ted Hafko's voice. It's got the heft and gravitas of someone like Dr John while staying approachable and good-natured.
I'm adding "Hesitation Blues," "Sweat Upon My Brow," and "Bad Kids," and "I Don't Feel Welcome Here" to rotation.
- "Hesitation Blues" is featured on Americana Music Show #235.
- "Sweat Upon My Brow" is featured on Americana Music Show #236.
