Connie Hawkins And The Blues Wreckers

Steve Hawkins Music
By Peter “Blewzzman” Lauro © December 2017

“Cryin’ In The Rain” is the second release for Connie Hawkins And The Blues Wreckers and since their debut release back in 2013, the only constants in the band are Mr. and Mrs. Hawkins.  The 2017 version of the Blues Wreckers are: Connie Hawkins, of course, on vocals; the disc’s producer and writer of all ten tracks, Steve Hawkins on guitar; Chuck Payne on keyboards; Jeff Ingram on saxophone; Marc Laney on drums; and Dave Kelley on bass.  Guest Blues Wreckers include Lee Watkins on trumpet & trombone and Zeus Negron on percussion.

The opening and title track, “Cryin’ In The Rain”, starts off with a strong rhythm groove led by Marc and Chuck, on the drums and organ, that immediately gets your limbs in motion.  Then Connie starts sassily telling a story about meeting a tall, dark and brutally handsome man and your first impression is that it’s a story about how she met Steve.  But as the story goes on, the guy turns into a no good cheatin’ dirt bag and there is no way Steve could be guilty of the things she’s saying.  On the other hand, what he is guilty of is laying down several smoking blues guitar licks that are one of this tracks many highlights.    

This one’s titled “You Don’t Know What I Know”…..but after you listen to it you will. You see, right now I know that this is another rhythm fueled smoker highlighted by Jeff’s robust sax leads; Steve once again killing it with scorching guitar leads; and Connie powerfully belting out some wide ranging blues vocals.

On this melancholy blues ballad the sincerity felt in Connie’s voice leaves no doubt about the fact that it sucks being on “Blues Ave”.  These type of songs usually call for a soft and tight rhythm groove; some slow, stinging blues guitar riffs; steamy saxophone leads; and emotional, soulful and sultry vocals….all of which always float my blues boat.  Surely one of the disc’s best right here.

So the IRS is calling, wanting her to pay more; the landlord’s outside knocking, about to break down her door; she has a flat tire, and a black cat crossed her path; and what little money she has she doesn’t know where it’s at.  Connie just can’t catch a break - she may have left Blues Avenue back there but sadly it was for a “Rendezvous With The Blues”.  Musically it’s another smoker highlighted by some crazy organ work by Chuck.

The disc closes with a Gospel style ballad titled “The Mountain”.  Musically, and vocally, this track features everyone at disc’s best.  Yet, with so much going on between the extended guitar, organ and saxophone highlights, it was Connie - with her ridiculous range - who totally blew me away here.  And when I say range, I’m not just talking in terms of highs and lows as the term commonly refers to, I’m talking in range of singing styles as well. She is all over this one and I do mean that literally.

Other tracks on this excellent disc include: “All I Need Is You”, “Hole In My Bucket”, “Let The Dogs Bark”, “When My Baby Loves Me” and “Short Loving Man” .

With a release slated for the beginning of 2018, as of now “Cryin’ In The Rain” may not be available at the bands website.  However, if you do go towww.conniehawkinsandtheblueswreckers.com and tell them their buddy the Blewzzman sent you, I’m betting Connie and Steve might just be able to hook you up.

Bill Charlap: Blindfold Test and Interview

Ted Panken commemorated Bill Charlap’s 50th birthday last year with an uncut 2001 blindfold test (spoiler alert: he doesn’t identify Herbie Nichols) and a 2009 interview during which Bill talks about, among other things, the all-star Blue Note 7 which recorded and toured during the label’s 70th anniversary.

tomatoband - August 3, 2017 - Charleston Pour House (Deck) Infestation segues into Rats

If we could just get rid of the rats, it would be a different story here. If we could just get rid of the rats, I could get her to spend the night. If we could just get rid of the rats, the kitchen wouldn’t be such a drag. If we could just get rid of the rats, it would be a different sight here. But the rats died and don’t realize the mess they leave behind…

You can hear em when you’re sleepin’, running through the ceilin’, feel em when you’re dreamin’, breathin’ faster now.
