The mastery of the craftsmen who lay down these blues is like a richly stained antique chair. Sitting in that chair is Waddy Mitchell, whose earthy-smooth, yet sensual voice steers us through a sea of bourbon and smoke. Waddy made it to the top 10 in the Blues Foundation's Best Self-Produced CD contest for 2006. Quite a feat! Mitchell conjures the spirit of Bessie Smith and Ma Rainey....her timbre and phrasing are spectacular. This is one of the most unique voices you will ever hear. Get up and dance or get down and cry - either can be felt through this emotional journey down a bluesy back road. There isn't any filler on this wonderful piece of work; just songs that you will enjoy.
