"Stone Cold Ohio" by Little Axe
February 11, 2009—The Little Axe aggregate continues to do good things with their latest CD Stone Cold Ohio (Ryko). The synthesis of old time blues, gospel, songs of work and songs of protest with the contemporary studio and its ability to combine old sound with new is in many ways aided and constructed by industry vetted producer Adrian Sherwood.
This new one is another winner. (See below for a review of a previous release). There's some cool acoustic guitar work embedded in there too. Sounds like there is the presence of what my young but eager nephew calls "that guitar with the spaghetti strainer built into it," the resonator!
