Veteran bluesman and one of Atlanta’s most articulate spokespeople for roots music history, Danny Dudeck, aka Mudcat, adds soul man to his résumé. Trumpet and sax join longtime sideman Lil’ Joe Burton’s trombone for a brassy version of the singer/guitarist’s bluesy vocabulary. The swampy choogle coursing through Mudcat’s previous material remains alive and well in “The Devil is Real,” leaving room for Mudcat’s slashing slide. His exuberant voice is energized on the animated title track as he testifies with the authenticity and dedication that such spirited music inspires.
Come join them for this Christmas special as they play their versions of Christmas classics.
