Please somebody tell me how come I had never heard Goree Carter. Today I was listening to the release “Rock Awhile” by Goree Carter and his Hepcats and I was floored. It’s a perfect blend of 40s RnB jump and jive with a killer toned guitar to the fore.
Clearly inspired by T-Bone Walker but with a bit more edge and grittiness. I read that he was only 18 when the tunes were recorded.

What a great musical day for me. Goree Carter (twice), The Gotan Project, Guitar Junior, Earth Wind and Fire, Hash Brown and Walter Horton.
