Quote: "It’s like BB King, Beck, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers fused their DNA and then trashed your house."

By Jennifer Layton

I never saw this coming. Nothing could have prepared me for the burst of frantic, funky, electric energy that burst out of my speakers when I put on KC Booker’s CD. I did read the bio sheet first, noting that Booker (aka Kelleth Chinn) has played in concert with Beck, Rage Against the Machine, and Jamiroquai. When I saw the comparison to Muddy Waters mixed in with names like Run-DMC and Led Zeppelin, I figured that was a typo.

It wasn’t. How to explain this. Booker takes old-school blues and infuses it with raunch and dance-floor aggression. It’s like BB King, Beck, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers fused their DNA and then trashed your house. I would not have been surprised if Booker had just crashed through my front door in the middle of “Butterberry” or “Crackerjack.” Track after track, this CD is wild, infectious, and so much fun.

It’s also over way too soon. Booker slams out these ten tracks in just under thirty minutes, leaving you lying on the floor breathless, wondering where the next party will be and if you’re cool enough to get in. Go ahead and chance it. It’s worth the rush.
