Zola MOON – Almost Crazy 1998

Blues

One of the most ballsy, most powerful singer-songwriters alive.tracks
ZOLA MOON IS ONE OF THE MOST CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ARTISTS ON CDBABY. HER ASTOUNDING VOCAL VIRTUOSITY, GRITTILY BRILLIANT SONGWRITING, AND INCREDIBLE INTENSITY AS A LIVE PERFORMER HAVE MADE HER A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH FOR OVER 25 YEARS. THE QUOTES BELOW ARE FROM MAGAZINES, NEWSPAPERS, WRITERS, REVIEWERS, AND DJs FROM AROUND THE WORLD. ABSOLUTELY NO VOCAL PITCH CORRECTION OR VOCAL AUGMENTATION WAS USED IN THE MAKING OF THIS CD

Great musicianship and an incredible voice make Zola Moon a definite winner. For those of you who look at the Blues as an old man style of music, all I have to say is, listen to Zola! Those who have heard her, understand what I’m talking about. Those who are interested, are going to be shown the way. And those who say, ‘Fuck this Blues shit, I want my fucking RAWK!’, are going to miss out. Zola is just simply fantastic!!!

Zola Moon sings the blues in an authentic way that’s won critical acclaim from scribes all over the world. She’s been often compared to Janis Joplin and Big Mama Thornton and is known for her burning live performances.

Zola Moon takes a darker tack on the blues on Almost Crazy, doing away with the cheesy, masturbatory, fake-Stevie Ray noodlings many bands mistake as blues. Her and her hand take a more under-stated approach, concentrating on good songs, and paying homage to John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson and Ella Fitzgerald. This record won’t bowl you over with instrumental histrionics (although it is very well played), but will slowly, but surely enrapture you with its subtle grooves.
