Album Review

Noge, Yoko & Jazz Me Bluesband – “Yoko Meets John ” – [Jazz Me Blues]

Thurston Hunger   9/4/2005   Blues, CD

Slow saucy striptease bloooz w/ some jazz touches.
Playful, patter between Yoko Noge and John Watson:
She brings breathy broken English and fixed
resolve, he adds well-timed humour via his lyrics
and his leering trombone. Still all innuendoes are
PTA-approved, Watson and Sonny Seals (t.sax) both
teach music in Chicago public schools after all.
Yoko’s “Sister Persistent” stands out w/ some nice
sturdy bass from Tatsu Aoki and some cool rapidfire
Japanese lyrics reminiscent of her Toe 2000 work.
Watson really adds some warmth, and you’ve got to
admire Yoko’s pluck + vamp + pursuit of her dream.
Keep an eye out for her.
