Mississippi Heat – Hattiesburg Blues
Delmark DE 795 (2008)
Pierre Lacocque has led Mississippi Heat since its inception in 1991. The harmonica player has always surrounded himself with the cream of the crop of Chicago blues players. Lurrie Bell, who appeared on Heat’s 2005 One Eye Open (DVD 1783, CD DE 783), is back again for two songs as is lead vocalist Inetta Visor. Guitarist Carl Weathersby plays throughout and sings on the tune “Hell and Back”. The Chicago Horns and latin percussionist Ruben Alvarez also lend their talents to add a very nice touch to this varied disc. Contains twelve songs, many of which are brand new original compositions!
