Mississippi Heat – Cab Driving Man
Delmark DE 848
The Heat is turned up again for another chapter in the 25-year history of Pierre Lacocque’s Mississippi Heat. The Living Blues review of their previous album said “Warning Shot (Delmark 839) showcases bandleader and principal songwriter Lacocque’s eloquent harp playing, supported by a cast of heavy hitters that delivers the trademark big band sound…one of the hottest, tightest bands in Chicago today, and the original songs on this album are pure fun and are worthy additions to the great history of Chicago blues.” Cab Driving Man features 15 new songs with Inetta Visor and Michael Dotson as lead vocalists again. The songs are a wonderful blend of Mississippi, Chicago, boogie, swing and south of the border.
