Little G. Weevil - If I May - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, If I May, from Little G. Weevil, and it's another in a line of solid releases from him. Opening with cool, blues rocker Yoga Girl (Hold Me Close) in the style of Willie Dixon, Little G onlead guitar and vocal has total control. With K.C. Brown on tight blues harp, Mr. Jambalaya on piano, Csaba Pengo on bass and Tom Kiss on drums, this is a strong opener. Wandering blues rocker, One Last Time really puts me in mind of early Savoy Brown and the great Kim Simmonds. With excellent musical tension, powerful vocal, thumping drumming by Kiss and excellent guitar lead by Little G., I love this track. Doctor Hay is a cool piano shuffle featuring Jambalaya on piano working hard with Pengo on bass under Little G's vocal. Nicely phrased guitar work by Little G gives the track a springy texture and a rakish grit. Very nice. Chicago style blues, Tingalingaling (Everybody's Qualified) really gets the band rolling with full house vocals, excellent harp work by Brown, rolling piano by Jambalaya and a firm bottom by Pengo and Kiss. Slow blues, We Don't Learn Much, features some real nice lead work by Little G. and potent vocals over the piano lead of Jambalaya. Written along the lines of a Broonzy tune, this track gives Little G. a chance to throw down some really stinging riffs to compliment his soulful vocals. Very nice. Wrapping the release is blues rocker, I Know Many Ways To Prove My Love. With thunderous drums by Kiss and and wailing guitar work by Little G., this is a strong closer for a strong release.
