USA : Blair Crimmins and The Hookers-You Gotta Sell Something (2016)

Blair Crimmins and The Hookers have a new batch of songs on their 3rd full length studio release. You Gotta Sell Something delivers more of their signature sound of supercharged Ragtime and Swing while also reaching into some new territory with Gospel and Jump Blues. Gypsy guitar, stride piano, rapid strumming banjo and a New Orleans style horn section keep the joint jumping while Crimmins sings in his clever lyrical style which is both humorous and sincere.
