Overview

This album offers as fine a rendering of traditional Chicago R&B as you're likely to hear anywhere on the planet. Led by trumpet player Don Tenuto and sax man Terry Ogolini, with the larger-than-life Ernie Peniston handling most of the vocal chores, this band lays down one killer tune after another. R&B legend Gene "Big Daddy" Barge not only produced this gem, but also pitched in a couple of awesome vocals and some very sweet sax work. This is the band who backed Larry "Big Twist" Nolan during the heyday of Big Twist and the Mellow Fellows, and they're still the same flawless cats working a skin-tight, just right, R&B groove. It takes some moxie for a group to call themselves the Chicago Rhythm & Blues Kings, but this crew can walk their talk, especially with a CD that's surely as good as any traditional R&B album released in the '90s.
