LITTLE G WEEVIL

BACK IN ALABAMA

WHEN THE KING WAS TOLD–SHE DON’T KNOW–BRAGGIN–THANK YOU FOR THE CRUISE–WORLD IS MINE–GULF COAST JAM–KEEP GOING–JOHN IS THE MAN–SASHA SAID–ANGEL CHILD–POOR BLACK MATTIE

Little G Weevil has been on our radar since 2013, when he won the whole shootin’ match in the Solo Category during that year’s IBC in Memphis.  He’s got five albums already under his belt, and number six is almost here.  “Back In Alabama” is that album’s title, and it’ll officially hit the streets on December 4, just in time for the holidays, and we’re here to create a bit of pre-release buzz!

If you are not familiar with Little G, he is literally a one-man wrecking crew when it comes to playin’ these blues.  His blues draw deeply from the well of the Delta, and you can hear a bit of the North Mississippi Hill Country in some of his grooves.  Plus, he plunks a little funk for the dancers along the way, too.  of course, G is on vocals, guitars, and bass drum, and he utilizes Tamara Nicolai on doghouse bass on three cuts.  You gotta have a harpoon man on a set like this, and Maurice Nazarro is the man here.  And, Carla Don and Rachel Bernice Edwards are on vocals for three cuts.  The live cuts were laid down at the Black Box Theater in Columbiana, AL,, and the crowd was sho’ nuff into the goings-on!!

G wrote nine of the eleven cuts, and one of the originals served as one of our favorites.  Our hero has “warned her three times and I ain’t gon’ make it four,” and “She Don’t Know” he’s got on his walkin’ shoes!  He fires up the funk for the backbeat that makes “World Is Mine” so easy to dance to.  G gets his house rent party vibe on with the swingin’ instrumental, “Gulf Coast Jam,” and lays into another cheatin’ lover in “Braggin,” asking her “tell me who you made last night!”

Our other favorite featured Maurice on the harp, and the crowd in the background had a helluva time with the call-and-response tale of our hero, who’s sorely lacking in the lovemaking department, “Sasha Said!”

Little G Weevil,  now based out of Atlanta, GA, keeps the traditions of the blues alive while having fun doing it!  Pre-orders for “Back In Alabama” begin November 16, so get in line, brothers, for some great down-home blues!  Until next time…Sheryl and Don Crow, The Nashville Blues And Roots Alliance.
