THE PHANTOM BLUES BAND

Footprints

2007-11-30

The Phantom Blues Band emerged from its spectral presence as long-time backer of Taj Mahal to make their own recipe of blues gumbo. The twice Grammy awarded band features the seasoned session players who've backed notables such as Joe Cocker and Bob Dylan. While the Phantom Blues Band continue to work with Taj Mahal, this 2001 W.C. Handy "Band of the Year" recipient serves up a savvy slice of groove. Highlights include Freddie King's "See See Baby" and the Ray Charles tune "A Fool for You." The Phantom Blues Band's "Footsteps" continues the work of sleeping giants. - Daniel J. Graeber
