Building on the foundation of Hurricane, Steve Morgan's previous CD with the Kingfish, Steve and the Kingfish inject healthy doses of sweet harmonies and horn-based R&B and Jazz into rocking and sophisticated tunes... Take a listen! Bluesy, jazzy, a taste of the islands, rocking.... Call it what you want; this is not the same old blues....
Steve has been lucky enough to attract some of the best players on Cape Cod for the Kingfish, and many of them are showcased here on the Blues in Paradise CD. Great tunes, great players, great times!
If you enjoy the CD, please make an effort to see us live! It's all kinds of fun!
