Zicazine – from France!


Translated from French:

“They had all played together at one point or another in their careers, but it is this time gathered within the Hungry Williams that these well-known musicians of the American scene come to serve us a pure cocktail of swing and jump deliciously bathed in the distant roots of rock and ingeniously sprinkled with New Orleans sauce! Based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the group formed by drummer John Carr is made up of singer Kelli Gonzalez, guitarist Joe Vent, keyboardist Jack Stewart and bassist Mike Sieger but also a range of saxophonists where we notice Troy Leisemann on tenor or Julia Bustle and Bob Jennings on baritone. Determined to set fire to wherever they go, The Hungry Williams come back with a new sulphurous puck, “Brand New Thing”, tartine in which they offer various compositions of each other but also some great classics of the genre revisited in their own way. With their feet firmly anchored in the Fifties, the group swings us without batting an eyelid frank and massive rereadings of the “Hook, Line & Sinker” recorded for the first time by Smiley Lewis in 1956, of the “Whole Lotta Shakin ‘Goin’ On” proposed by Big Maybelle in 1955 but later made famous by Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Ferguson’s “Baby Don’t Do It” from Five Royales in 1952, Ruth Brown’s “Wild Wild Young Men” in 1953 and “It’s Raining” Outside ”by Wynona Carr in 1955, but many other nuggets as well, however offering a nice getaway in the 70’s with the adaptation of “When I Meet My Girl” by Lee Allen transformed for the occasion into “When I Meet My Boy” to better stick to Kelli Gonzalez. The result is final and it is with ants in the legs that the listener feasts on this early swingin ‘rock’ n ‘roll which for three quarters of an hour will bring him back to what the genre has done best. , all proposed by musicians who obviously take a crazy foot to play this music. Vintage suits them so well! all proposed by musicians who obviously take a crazy foothold in playing this music.
