Hubert Sumlin & Pinetop Perkins

Primarily known as sidemen, pianist Pinetop Perkins and guitarist Hubert Sumlin, if not as widely recognized as the artists they've supported, do have something of a legendary status in the blues world. Thus, this CD where the two of them take the lead (providing vocals as well) is aptly titled. The material consists mainly of longtime standards such as "Got My Mojo Working," "Rock Me Baby," "Hoochie Coochie Man," and "The Sky Is Crying," all performed with the considerable skill attained through years of experience. If Perkins and Sumlin's approach to these tunes isn't exactly innovative, it is rock solid and energetic, with plenty of excellent lead work from them both. Also notable is Annie Raines's harmonica, which provides solid counterpoint to the two leads, and occasionally takes the lead on its own.

====

A session that Pinetop Perkins co-led with one-time Howlin' Wolf sideman Hubert Sumlin, Legends should have been outstanding but is merely average. Singer/pianist Perkins (who was 84 when Legends was recorded in May 1998) and singer/guitarist Hubert Sumlin both had strong Chicago blues credentials going way back, and one greets Legends with very high expectations. But while Legends isn't a bad album, the sparks don't fly the way they should have. Embracing familiar electric blues classics like Willie Dixon's "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man," Jimmy Reed's "Shame, Shame, Shame" and B.B. King's "Rock Me, Baby," Perkins and Sumlin simmer without ever really igniting. And their accompaniment (which includes guitarist Doug Wainoris, harmonica player Annie Raines, bassist Rod Carey and drummer Per Hanson) doesn't go that extra mile either. The CD sinks to its lowest point when Wainoris and Raines sing lead on Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown's "She Walks Right In" - while Wainoris is a competent singer, Raines has a terrible voice and makes listeners painfully aware of the fact that she should stick to harmonica playing. For the most part, however, Legends isn't disastrous - just mildly disappointing. This is a CD that only completists will want.
