Walk That Walk - Big World of Trouble - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Big World of Trouble, by Walk That Walk, and it's a cool, modern mix of delta, boogie, and funky blues. Opening with Roof Got A Hole In It, Popa C. De Snyder on slide guitar and vocal harmonizes with Tim Gartland on harmonica and vocal. Backing vocal by Maria Tollefson and Jonathan Rossoff add richness to the mix.  A cool contemporary acoustic blues, a solid opener. On John Lee Hooker's classic, Boogie Chillen, Stickman Waldron on harmonica, Randi Laak on drums and Mike Barrows on bass really do a nice job with DeSnyder on lead vocal. His riffs on guitar have a modern sound but deeply rooted in Hooker's own riffs. Very cool. Poppa C has a deep vamp supported by Dirk van Gulden on bass and Laak on drums. Gartland on harmonica and DeSnyder on vocal and guitar really dig in on this one and Ted Hastings Armstrong adds keys that flesh the track out nicely. Muddy Waters' Still A Fool maintains all of the energy of the original with solid rhythm and harmonica. Wrapping the release is shuffle, Good Woman with  a driving bass line by Mike Barrows and Waldron on harmonica. Stinging guitar riffs and solid vocals by De Snyder are a good capper for this strong release.
