Cuttin' In

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Roberta Penn
At Albert Collins's wake, guitarist Coco Montoya delivered a version of Collins's "Dyin' Flu" that brought family members and friends to tears. It had such passion and pathos that although Montoya had spent a decade with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, there was no question that his real mentor was the Master of the Telecaster, with whom he had toured before joining the Mayall band. Several CDs later, and nearly a decade since Collins' passing, Montoya still carries his teacher's spirit on SUSPICION. Though there is only one Collins' tune, "Get Your Business Straight," the icy single-note lines of "Enough Is Enough" and the controlled vibrato on "Trading One Fool for ...

Barnes & Noble - Roberta Penn
At Albert Collins's wake, guitarist Coco Montoya delivered a version of Collins's "Dyin' Flu" that brought family members and friends to tears. It had such passion and pathos that although Montoya had spent a decade with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, there was no question that his real mentor was the Master of the Telecaster, with whom he had toured before joining the Mayall band. Several CDs later, and nearly a decade since Collins' passing, Montoya still carries his teacher's spirit on SUSPICION. Though there is only one Collins' tune, "Get Your Business Straight," the icy single-note lines of "Enough Is Enough" and the controlled vibrato on "Trading One Fool for Another" are straight out of the Collins textbook. But Montoya's 1960s roots show in the rocked-up Rolling Stones feel to "I Need Your Love in My Life, the radio-friendly appeal of "Fool," and the funky, horn-driven sound of "What I Know Now." The contemporary production values give the set convincing pop sheen seldom heard on recent blues releases, lending Montoya's vocals a previously unheard authority.
All Music Guide - Philip Van Vleck
This is Costello's second solo album, his first since his appearance on Susan Tedeschi's hit CD Just Won't Burn. Costello is only 20 years old, but his guitar work is in a completely different league from that of the other kid blues guitarists currently causing a fuss in bluesland. Costello comes from a remarkably well-informed place as a player. This is reflected not only in his guitar style, but also in the choice of material on Cuttin' In. He has a nice feel for jump blues, as we hear on his cover of Sonny Boy Williamson's "Mellow Chick Swing," and he can do the hard-edged Chicago blues with the requisite skill and fury -- check out his Butterfield-esque original "Who's Been Cheatin' Who." The R&B influence has not eluded Costello either -- his cover of Otis Rush's "Double Trouble" is handled with a soulful feel that belies his age. And Costello's not afraid to take a flyer, either, which brings us to the calypso funkiness of "Goombay Rock," a song worthy of the Squirrel Nut Zippers' attention. Costello the guitarist has snatched the key to the blues kingdom. His playing is shockingly deep for a 20-year-old. And his vocal work is nearly a match for his guitar chops; given time, that too will become very real. Of all the young blues lions out there brandishing their electric guitars, Costello is the one who's got his head and heart into the deep blues.
