Warning Shot

Mississippi Heat -- the still bewilderingly named contemporary Chicago blues group -- go long on Warning Shot, their fifth album for Delmark. This 2014 set runs over an hour, sprawling over the course of 16 songs, an album that's long enough to be a double. Such length gives Pierre Lacocque's combo plenty of space to indulge in every manner of Chicago blues, letting them drift away from the standard shuffles and boogies but not neglecting these either. Sometimes, there's a bit of a rush hearing them slide into a rhumba, but usually the thrill lies in hearing the band play the old stuff well. Vocalist Inetta Visor is controlled yet passionate and there's some dirt underneath the fingernails of guitarist Giles Corey, but Lacocque remains the star attraction, slathering every track with as much harp as it can stand yet never quite seeming excessive.
