Elvin Bishop & Little SmokeySmothers: That's My Partner

(2000 'Alligator') (55:18/12) 'Recorded live at Biscuit & Blues, San Francisco - January 9-11, 2000' . Funky und rockender Blues in der typischen Bishop-Gangart. In dem kleinen Downtown-Club trafen sich zwei Kollegen, die seit Anfang der 60er Jahre eine enge Freundschaft verbindet. Es war nämlich Little Smokey, der Elvin, dem jungen Studenten aus Oklahoma, die richtigen Gitarrentricks beibrachte und der ihm Eingang in die Butterfield Blues Band verschaffte! Um Little Smokey wurde es dann leise, bis zu seinen beiden exzellenten 90er-Jahre Produktionen auf 'Black Magic' und 'CrossCut'. Bishop ist seit Mitte der 60er Jahre in San Francisco verwurzelt und fester Bestandteil der dortigen Szene. Diese CD strotzt vor Spielfreude; das Material ist ca. 50/50 zwischen Smothers und Bishop aufgeteilt. Kurzweilig / since the early '60s when Little Smokey took Elvin under his wings, showed him how to play the blues, and got him into the Butterfield Blues Band these two guys have remained friends. This fine live album is showing both in good shape. Bishop is a mainstay on California's blues scene ever since moving there in the mid-60s, and Smokey is back with two fine albums on the Black Magic, and CrossCut labels. A good live album recorded with Bishop's regular band.

"Elvin Bishop & Little SmokeySmothers"

Ever since Rock & Roll and Blues Hall Of Famer Elvin Bishop first hit the scene with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band back in 1965, he’s blazed his own musical trail. Whether he was playing raw, eye-popping blues, or penning the evergreen radio hit Fooled Around And Fell In Love, or touring the world for decades delivering his original, good-time countrified blues, Bishop has always inspired his fans with his rowdy guitar playing and witty, slice-of-life songs. Rolling Stone calls Bishop “a legendary guitarist” whose playing is “impeccable and spirited…a distinguished American player.”

Late in 2015, Elvin Bishop formed The Big Fun Trio, with Bishop on guitar and vocals, and his friends Bob Welsh on piano and guitar and Willy Jordan on cajón (a hand-played Peruvian drumbox) and vocals. After playing just a handful of live dates, the group’s instantly crowd-pleasing music and undeniable chemistry took the blues world by storm. With the release of their self-titled CD in 2017, media and fan response was immediate and overwhelming. DownBeat celebrated Bishop’s “verbal hijinks, outstanding guitar work and country boy friendliness.” OffBeat said The Big Fun Trio was “intricate, funky and uplifting,” declaring them, “consistently great.” With its top-shelf musicianship and front-porch vibe, the album earned a Grammy Award nomination, and won Blues Music Awards for Album Of The Year and Song Of The Year (for the title track) from The Blues Foundation.

The Big Fun Trio quickly discovered the more they played live, the more fun they had making music together. So a follow-up recording was an easy decision. The new album, Something Smells Funky ‘Round Here, finds the group fearlessly laying it all on the line. According to Elvin, “With a trio there’s no place to hide—you’ve got to be pourin’ everything you got right out front. You need to be totally into it all the time. It’s really cool to see how people react to the goin’-for-it feel of the music.”
