Product Notes

Adam Gussow and Alan Gross, a.k.a. The Blues Doctors, are Mississippi-based blues veterans who play a mix of Delta standards and urban grooves from the Texas-to-Chicago axis with some New Orleans funk thrown in. They're a two-man band with a big, bold sound: Gussow on harmonica and drumset, Gross on guitar, with both men sharing vocal duties. Roosters Happy Hour is their debut recording as a duo. It includes blues standards such as 'Next Time You See Me,' 'Rock Me,' 'Pride and Joy,' and 'Sweet Home Chicago,' jazz and R&B favorites such as Stanley Turrentine's 'Sugar' and the Crusaders' 'Put It Where You Want It,' and a handful of originals by Gussow, including a funky chromatic harp workout, 'Staten Island Hurricane Blues,' and the Hooker-style boogie, 'I Need Your Love.' Named for the steady Friday gig at Rooster's Blues House in Oxford, Mississippi where Gussow and Gross hammered out their two-man sound, Roosters Happy Hour will please traditionalists and adventurous blues fans alike. The Blues Doctors are a power blues trio without the bass, driven by Gussow's thumping kickdrum; they're a hard-swinging jump combo distilled to the bare essentials, propelled by Gross's jangling guitar and Gussow's dazzling harp lines. Roosters Happy Hour is down-home blues with a big-city angle of attack. Marking Gross's debut as a recording artist, Roosters Happy Hour also continues Gussow's transformation from a harmonica virtuoso into a one-man rhythm machine. Those who remember the early 1990s recordings of Satan and Adam will enjoy the Blues Doctors's remakes of "Watermelon Man" and "Don't Get Around Much Anymore"-this time with Gussow in the percussion chair. Roosters Happy Hour is a joyous, funky, deep-dish feast. It's two seasoned veterans having a great time with the blues.
