Tip of the Hat to Fats
NEW CD AVAILABLE NOW!
Mitch Woods’ new album is called A Tip of the Hat to Fats, but it’s far more than a tribute to the late rock ’n’ roll granddaddy Fats Domino. With a wide embrace of styles, high-flying performances, and a song list that also includes Professor Longhair, Wynonie Harris, Jackie Brenston and Woods himself, these nine tunes — each with a buoyant introduction by the singer, pianist and bandleader — perfectly spotlight his upbeat virtuosity.
Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88’s are the torch bearers of a great American musical heritage.
Taking their inspiration from the great jump n’ boogie outfits and swingin’ little big bands of the 40’s, they breathe fresh life into the music that gave birth to rock n’ roll.
