ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
TWO SCOOPS COMBO! Review by Harry “The Man” Joynes
If you like some serious boogie-woogie that will bring on a range of sensations from hunger to despair, then get yourself a copy of this release by the incredible “Two Scoops Combo” under the leadership of Mr. Eric “Two Scoops” Moore.
The title track with have you running to your refrigerator looking for something to eat. “Big Buffet” is a fun song to check out and I would encourage the listener to at least have something on the stove cookin’ after hearing this track.
“Old Blues Jam” is an up tempo boogie that reminds me of nights I used to go down to various jam sessions around the Seattle area. Throughout the CD the band is tight, energetic, and they definitely sound as if they’re having a good time on all the tracks. “Sax” Gordon’s horn arrangements are fresh and punchy.
Listening to the song “Sideman” I had to laugh because the track is basically telling the truth. It’s funny and fresh but with a certain irony that all side people put up with. (Ya’ll know what I’m saying)!
The last track on this release is not for sensitive ears but I listened to it over and over. “Flesh Eating Disease” is an account of what Eric has been through. It speaks of his experience in a hospital with Necrotizing Myofascitis. The song describes the loneliness and the hopelessness “Two Scoops” felt while undergoing treatment in the hospital. The overall mood tells the listener that it is a serious song meant to convey a message. It will make you wonder about some things. This is to me the essence of the blues we all feel sometimes.
Moore’s piano playing is along the lineage of the greats from New Orleans and Kansas City and throughout the CD it‘s evident that he developed a love for the old, traditional blues and R&B recordings of Professor Longhair, Muddy Waters, Louis Jordan, and Memphis Slim.
Some very talented sidemen, “Sax” Gordon on sax, Jesse Williams on bass, and Tom Hambridge on drums, do an excellent job of making them toes wiggle and heads bounce!
I would highly recommend obtaining a copy of this release by “Two Scoops Combo” but be advised. Please use sparingly or weight gain will result!
