That Man's Got To Go – Sweet Claudette Live in the Studio
Sweet Claudette and Friends February 2009 Review
No Cover Productions # NCP-115

WOW! Claudette's latest release on No Cover has 9 thumping, grinding originals and 1 cover tune included. Claudette has "lined up the stars" both literally and figuratively for her fifth and most definitive CD to date. She is joined on this release by a who's who of Detroit talent including Howard Glazer and Dan DeKuyper on Guitars, Alonzo "Big Al" Haralson on Trumpet, Marty Montgomery on Sax, Greg Manning on Drums, and Todd MacIntosh on Bass.
The "Sweet One" opted to cut the whole thing "Live" in the studio accepting only a single take per song! No overdubs, no do-overs, and definitely no BS. Gutsy, ballsy, and gritty are the superlatives best used to describe her style, her performance, and the content on this CD.
In this new release, Claudette has affixed her roots to the Blues. It soon becomes very clear to the listener that Claudette is an accomplished songwriter singing about real life. She's been carving her niche in the blues genre' for many years, but this breakout CD will cut a swath the size of a semi for her.
Claudette has been a blues icon for many years in Michigan and in her native Alabama. This CD will push her much further and is a "must buy" for any real Blues fan! Get yours today because this is a CD on the move and so will you be when you hear it.

James Anthony Band (JAB) & Sweet Claudette at Carrigan Arms, Burlington, ONT - March 28, 2008

An over capacity, seam splitting, wall expanding crowd for all 3 segments at this one at Carrigan Arms, Burlington Ontario Canada. James Anthony's expanded band (James-master guitarist, bassman-Uli, Gordi on drums, master keyboardist, John & the lip man -Pete on sax) showed their natural behinds and took the music to the next level. It was done with such controlled volume and dyanamics that 'you could indeed hear a rat piss on cotton' at times. The audience was 'on their game' and boogied with us. AND of course, I got a chance to do one or 2 of my corny jokes before all was said and done.

This is one for the journal. Sweet Claudette is estatic about being on the same bill as Willie King & the Liberators, Eddie Kirkland, Hubert Sumlin, Mudcat and of course back with the 2005 Alabama Women of the Blues; Debbie Bond, Caroline Shines, Elnora Spencer. These ladies know how to make singing the blues exciting for the audience.
