Album Review

Young Texas guitarist Hamilton Loomis' first disc for Blind Pig, Kickin' It, is a mixed bag of modern blues, modern funk, and slick soul. As a young man getting started in the blues, Loomis was mentored by Lone Star State legends Albert Collins, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, and Johnny Copeland. He seems proud to use those names in interviews and press releases, and rightfully so! You sense he is genuinely honored to have been taken under the wing of these elder statesmen. So, it comes as a bit of a surprise in the Kickin' It liner notes when Loomis brags, "This ain't yo' Grandpa's blues record," and how he's going to take "blues out of the box." If you associate Loomis' mentors with "grandpa's blues record," you probably won't get much enjoyment from Kickin' It.

Great Blues Album

Saw Hamilton live in Colorado and HAD to purchase this album. His music definitley plays tribute to his mentors, but with his own added style. If you are looking for a true to the roots blues album, this is not for you, but if you are looking for a modern artisit, who stays true to HIS roots and adds in the flavor of the greats, you'll love it.

Kickin it through the goal post
