Product Description:
This was singer/harmonica player Kim Wilson's first studio album in six years, Lookin' For Trouble is his second release for M.C. Records. His label debut, the 2001 live recording, Smokin' Joint, was nominated for a Grammy Award as Best Traditional Blues Album and also picked up four W.C. Handy Blues Award nominations.Kim Wilson is best known as a founding member of the influential American roots band The Fabulous Thunderbirds, a group he continues to lead for both recording and touring. Lookin' For Trouble features nine songs either written or co-written by Wilson, including two versions of the title song, one done as a blues shuffle and the second as a rock 'n' roll tune. In addition, Kim puts his unique stamp on five cover tracks: the Willie Dixon classic, Love My Baby, Dave Bartholomew's Hook Line and Sinker, Jimmy Rogers' Money Marble and Chalk, Snooky Pryor's Tried To Ruin Me and L.C. McKinley's Down With It. Throughout the CD, he displays a mastery of blues styles, ranging from Chicago and West Coast sounds to Memphis and New Orleans-infused blues.
Fabulous Thunderbirds frontman Kim Wilson plays a deeper and darker shade of blues when he's performing under his own name, and Lookin' for Trouble, his first solo studio recording in six years, successfully showcases an assortment of traditional styles all invigorated by Wilson's virtuoso harp work. Wilson's continuing evolution as a singer and songwriter (he had a hand in composing nine of the tunes) is impressive, but his harmonica heroics, such as on the echo-heavy, midnight-blues rendition of Jimmy Rogers's "Money Marble & Chalk," remain the primary attraction. With his working band--featuring yet another hot young guitar discovery in Troy Gonyea--behind him, Wilson rolls through 14 songs, mixing a bit of horn-powered jump blues, some Memphis soul, and a tasty slice of New Orleans (via Dave Bartholomew's "Hook Line & Sinker") into his classic Chicago sensibilities. The title tune, co-written with fiancée Amanda Taylor, gets two takes (a straight-ahead shuffle and a harder-edged rock rendition) to bring the total to 15 tracks, most of which have different approaches but all of which are unified by Wilson's Herculean harp work and experienced grasp of bedrock blues styles. --Michael Point
