Product Description

Product Description

BabaJack is an award winning, highly contemporary Blues Roots band. Their music is influenced by the blues, but not bound by it. Trevor Steger's slide and harmonica infuses their music with early blues meets Ry Cooder style, and Becky Tate's raw percussive energy, coupled with her powerful lyrical vocal bring rhythm and beauty into the mix. On 'Running Man' they are joined by Tosh Murase on drums, Adam Bertenshaw on Bass and Julia Palmer Price on cello. This band have been wowing festival audiences up and down the UK and Europe, and scooping awards along the way. This album has already caught the attention of many, bringing them new management, agency, and airplay from Radio 2.

Format: Audio CD
The one thing yoiu can say about Babajack they truly are a breath opf fresh air on the blues scene, it's hard to believe there are only two of them,although for some gigs thesedays they have an added bass and drume,oh and the occasional cello. Live they are simply fantastic,every venue they play is packed, it's party time. Recently at a very rare pub gig these days,a packed house sang along to their version of 'Black Betty'.Add to that the ammount of awards they are winning in blues awards here and in europe. From one appearance in France this year they were booked to five major blues festivals.
Becky Tate (percussion & Vocals) and Trevor Steger (guitars- all of them homemade from wardrobe doors,old piano panels,wine crates and suchlike, harmonica and vocals) are the two that make up this band. Mostly self written or rearranged blues classics. One reviewer questioned whether this is blues, I respect that that, but blues has so many facits that definition is hard, so let's just say this is great music,superbly played and sung by one very popular act on the blues circuit, reaching many who would not normally turn out for a blues type gig. This is their forth album, the last one 'Rooster' won awards and several great reviews in the music press, but now we have 'Running Man', full of great songs,added by Tosh Murasse on drums and Adam Bertenshaw on bass, plus Julia Palmer on cello. Their cover of Son House's Death Letter,so popular at live gigs gets a chance to go to Cd with excellent results,All the rest (nine songs) are originals.

Interesting stripped down folk/blues crossover, very catchy. Good female lead vocal and strong accompaniment with a driving beat.

The two star reviewers must have come with a strange attitude, as there's nothing not to like!

Refreshing, that's what one review says and so right ... I did say when playing the c.d. for the first time to my darling wife, hey, this girl can sing! ... We do enjoy both US and UK blues as we are both ourselves and always consider early blues definitely of the US nature but would not take anything away from the British blues scene, mainly from the early 70s with the likes of Free and D. and the Dominoes and this very much falls into a nice niche of what was missing from the Brit blues scene of the time with the 'new' modern twist of things which is very much now, I'm glad to say, coming to fruition again after a big void ... I would love to see Babajack live and without getting there yet I know there would atmosphere, excitement and an element of mystery when I get there. Well done, love your stuff and keep rockin' ... by the way, I do have a spare wardrobe door if you ever run out of guitars! ...
