Can blue men sing the whites?,
This review is from: Let Them Talk (Audio CD)
Hugh Laurie has really gone up in my estimation after hearing this album. Previously I just saw him as another brit who had deserted our shores for the lure of the American dollar.
It takes a lot of guts for a white middle-class English actor to record the blues but Hugh makes a good job of it. There was obviously a lot of thought (and money) put into this recording. The sound that they created in the studio is really fantastic and the musicians who accompanied him have to be the best exponents of this style of music going today. Maybe Hugh's voice isn't quite there but he more than makes up for it with his sheer enthusiasm and obvious love of the music.
Good on you Hugh, and lets have some more soon!
