Little G Weevil was born and raised in Hungary and immigrated to America to pay his dues on Beale and steep himself in the blues. On Moving he proves how thoroughly he has learned to inhabit those old blues masters.
He recorded the CD at Bakos Amp Works in midtown Atlanta with no amps and only acoustic instruments. Maurice Nazzarro provides harmonica to punctuate the acoustic guitar and Dustin Sargent plays upright bass. Little G Weevil stomps off the rhythm and Adam Goodhue adds drums as needed. Danny Vinson adds rhythm guitar on "Moving" and solo guitar on " Swing in the Middle" and "Mean and Dirty."
The whole CD was recorded .with one microphone in the middle of the room and several more scattered around for the band. The result is a return to the days when what went down in the performance was exactly what you got on the record. Weevil's gravelly voice suits this sort of stripped-down music perfectly and the other players are so good that they can carry the acoustic style off. That's not as easy as you might think.
It's amazing that the sound is so authentically old-school when you consider that all of the songs are original except for the traditoonal "Let's Talk it Over (Come Back Baby)."
Little G Weevil plays dobro on "Shake it and Break It" and several other songs on the CD. He also plays cigar box guitar on "Let Someone Else Do All the Work" and :"Advice." The rest of the songs feature some skilled acoustic guitar work. All the other players do a great job of adding perfect accompaniment without anyone overpowering anyone else. It really is a remarkable experience.
If you like the old blues of McTell and Johnson and the rest you will love this CD. It's not slick and it's not commercial. It's just great blues listening.
