I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Fully Charged, from Kathy Murray & The Kilowatts and its a cool current day blues rocker. Opening with Expense of Love based around an up tempo Sonny Boy Williamson riff, Kathy Murray leads the release off with supple, lead vocals in front of a band that sounds like it's chomping at the bit to run. With Michael DeSantis on bass, Richard Ross on drums, and Bill "Monster" Jones on guitar, solid opener. Rolling into a great blues track, My Mistake, Jones steps up with some hot riffs over DeSantis' bass line, and with the addition of the Texas Horns (Kaz Kazanoff on tenor sax, John Mills on bari sax, and Al Gomez on trumpet). Very nice! With a modified walking bass line driven by DeSantis, Henny Penny Blues is a cool change up mid disc with a nice exchange between Murray and Jones. With solid riffs and a snappy drum base by Ross, a solid addition. Pulling out Tampa Red's It Hurts Me Too, Jones slips on the slide and with Murry's vocal prowess, really delivers on this classic. Wrapping the release is Extra Nice with Murray sharing the vocal spotlight with Jones (who of course has lead guitar and adds accordion) over a cool bass line by Jeff Botta with Jason Corbiere on drums. Cool closer.
