His resume has been impressive, just think of his organ riff in Like A Rolling Stone, or Blood, Sweat & Tears' first album -a band he actually founded- or his legendary jams with Mike Bloomfield and Stephen Stills. The man is not just part of Rock's history, he helped writing it.
Yet, for many years his presence and influence has been limited, in part due to his frustration and disdain for the music business -to give you a picture of it, let's just say that his autobiography is called "Back Stage Passes & Backstabbing Bastards- as well as due to limited and less than stellar output.
This last statement, fortunately, must be read in past tense. Kooper new album, Black Coffee, has changed that with its set of self-penned beauties and strong covers. This is Mr. Kooper's glorious return to form.
Among the best songs here are the laid back R&B of opener "My Hands Are Tied," three killer ballads -"How My Ever Gonna Get Over You," "Imaginary Lover" and
and the Gospel-like " (I Want You To) Tell Me The Truth"- and the slow burner "Keep It To Yourself" which may remind you of Boz Scaggs. The great tunes don't end there yet, to avoid your attention, I will.
Last but not least mention must be made of the Funky Faculty, the band mainly counting on Al's fellow instructors at Berklee School of Music -where Kooper taught for a few years until 2001- and the extraordinary back-up singers. Their skill, soul and tight connection with this music made this music shine, particularly Bob Douzema on guitar and Daryl Lowery on some smoking alto sax.
This is a special album, equally capable to make you groove and move you deeply, in turn ready to get the party going or provide the sound of an intimate moment. For me, "Black Coffee" a shoe-in for the "best of 05" list.
I had to purchase this cd because the songs are excellent. On the cd you are treated to two live recordings, "Green Onions" and "Comin' Back In A Cadillac". He even does a cover of "Get Ready". (I'm sure that you will be singing along with this song and tapping your feet.)This cd has differnt styles on it and I really enjoy all the songs.
I have been a fan of Al's since the Super Sessions and I am sure that you will enjoy this cd.
Al Kooper is not only a great musician, but he manages to surround himself with great musicians. I saw him last year with his Boston band, The Funky Faculty who are prominent on Black Coffee, and these guys are incredible. His New York band, the ReKooperators, are yet another group of amazing musicians. And don't forget.. in the late sixties Al teamed up with Mike Bloomfield, surely one of the greatest blues guitarists ever.
Black Coffee is a must have. Every track is a winner. After you've listened, start with the Blues Project and pick up any Kooper CD's you may have missed along the way.
And, by the way, forty years ago Al Kooper was the sexiest voice in rock and roll, and at the age of 61, Al Kooper is STILL the sexiest voice in rock and roll.
The album opens with the excellent "My Hands Are Tied" , featuring a powerful horn arrangement and a thunderous bass line. It is the highlight of the album ,with the reggae flavored Got My Ion Hue being my 2nd choice.
Am I Wrong is acoustic bluesy tune with some great slide guitar .In fact,lead guitarist Bob Doezema is excellent throughout the entire album.
Going, Going Gone is a whimsical tribute to "all the things we took for granted" in our youth but are gone now.
Green Onions is a blistering live version of the classic Booker T and The MG's instrumental, with great organ and guitar, This song and Comin Back In a Cadillac were recorded at a 2001 concert in Norway that sounds like everyone had a good time at.
Another Man's Prize is the sleeper of the Album - the more I hear it the more I like it. The same is true for the cover version of Smokey Robinson's Get Ready.
Al Kooper really is a professor of music, and there are more than a few worthwhile lessons in this varied collection of songs, rhythms and musical styles
The difference through the years is that I used to wear out a new Koop record within two weeks of purchasing it. Come to think of it, I might well wear this sucker out in CD format as well. It's gonna be played that frequently.
With his staggering repertoire, Mr. Koop enjoyed a catalogue of 30 years from which to chose these songs. Doing so must have been like picking amongst your favorite children. The love and care are obvious, the impossibility of such an assignment notwithstanding.
Let's pray radio somehow figures out where to program this musical treasure. While we're at it, let's hope for a tour of small clubs in a city nearby. Moreover, I sure hope you can't wear out a CD from repeated listenings.
