It's a Good Day
Released: Jul 2010
Label: BISMEAUX RECORDS
Asleep at the Wheel's Western swing sounds like a jazzy, fiddle-infused romp through the corral. Add original Bob Wills and His Texas Playboy Leon Rausch to the vocal mix and the sparks fly. The band effortlessly reels off song after song, adding jazz flourishes to their bluesy swing, which is emphasized by Rausch's often growling, Louis Armstrong-like vocals. "Sugar Moon" is a pure Dixie delight, while "Mean Woman With the Green Eyes" is the sort of bluesy honky-tonk gem that artists dream of writing themselves. But nothing beats Asleep at the Wheel's jump-boogie version of "Route 66."
