Warning Shot (Delmark Records) features sixteen songs (14 originals) from one of Chicago’s most creative and original bands. Led by harp-master Pierre Lacocque, who contributed ten of the tunes here, Warning Shot, takes you from vintage Chicago and Delta blues, to exciting jungle and Latin beats, swing-boogies, R&B ballads, and a Calypso tinged rhumba.
When you listen to this superb CD, you’re not just hearing a band. You’re hearing a family, one with a deep love, understanding, and respect for each other. That special guest Sax Gordon is so seamlessly incorporated into their signature sound speaks volumes. Inetta Visor sings most of the songs while guitarist Michael Dotson sings on his three originals and drummer Kenny Smith sings one of his own. Warning Shot is a remarkable musical achievement
