Midnight Train is our original intro song, our finale and our anthem.
This is Nadine, written by Chuck Berry. We modified his rhythm to lock in a groove we liked better. Sorry Chuck.
And we have Hound Dog, originally written by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller. This rhythm is closer to Big Mama Thornton, who recorded the original tune with Johnny Otis on drums. Sorry Elvis.
This is Down Home Blues, written by Z Z Hill in the 1980s and it became an instant blues standard.
. . . and i t’s called Who’s Been Talking, a great jam tune because it’s a standard 12 bar blues but everything is minor. Familiar to play and yet it sounds new. Written by Willie Dixon, this arrangement is inspired by Billy Branch.
