Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons with Phil Wiggins - A Black & Tan Ball - New Release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, A Black & Tan Ball, by Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons and it's strong. Opening with classic, Do You Call That A Buddy, Hunter on violin & Seamons on guitar along with Phil Wiggins create the sound of a fine wine with a really nice arrangement. Excellent! Georgian fiddler tune, Shangai Rooster really gets heels high in the air with harp, banjo and fiddle. Super jam. An exceptional hot jazz number, Struttin' With Some Barbeque, features Wiggins on harp trading lead with Hunter on violin with tight rhythm by Seamons on guitar. Very nice. Another super jazz number, Do Nothing Til You Hear From Me features solid vocals and excellent mandolin lead by Hunter and warm harmonica melodies by Wiggins. Guitar Rag is a great jam with Hunter on violin and Wiggins on harp again working with Seamons on guitar for an excellent track. Cool old blues track, Hard Time Blues holds tight and fast to original Lane Hardin styling with vocal, guitar, mandolin and harp. Particularly strong vocals on Bullfrog Blues makes this one of my favorites in the manner of William Harris. Wrapping the release is Stop & Listen Blues, a Mississippi Sheiks tune with great vocals, pure harp, authentic violin and solid guitar. This is a really strong release of authentic blues tracks. Check it out!
