After a few years break from recording, Nico Wayne Toussaint is making a dazzling comeback with an album entirely dedicated to the repertoire of James Cotton, the legendary harp player and singer who passed away last March and had been long associated with Muddy Waters. Nico met James Cotton in the US in 2003 and ended up on stage with him, sitting on his lap and blowing Cotton’s own harmonica! With this album he pays a vibrant tribute to his mentor, backed up by his usual band supplemented by a brass trio. Strong and moving.

Hubert Sumlin was one of thirteen children born on a farm near Greenwood, Mississippi on November 16, 1931. He learned to play drums and guitar as a small child and was playing at parties and local jukes by the time he was twelve years old. Sumlin's warped style of blues, which has been called "wicked" and "bent", went on to influence everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Frank Zappa. The raw tone in his guitar bites deep when he plays the jump style, ice-cold blues from Chicago. Whether he's playing one of his old guitars or a brand new model, Sumlin runs it through his old Fender amp and really makes it talk. Hubert Sumlin's return to the recording studio is very special because it includes a reunion with his old friend James Cotton. Heart & Soul is a tribute to the many influences and inspirations that make Hubert Sumlin one of the premier blues artists of his time.

Although the titles are all familiar (most of them a little too much so), Cotton and his all-star cohorts (guitarists Jimmie Vaughan, Matt Murphy, Luther Tucker, Hubert Sumlin, and Wayne Bennett, with the omnipresent Perkins on keys) pull the whole thing off beautifully. Cotton's cover of Wolf's "Moanin' at Midnight" is remarkably eerie in its own right, and he romps through Muddy Waters' "Blow Wind Blow" and "Sugar Sweet" with joyous alacrity.

Taken from the high-energy harpist's first three albums for Verve following his split from Muddy Waters (including the entirety of his fine eponymous 1967 debut), this 20-track anthology is a fine spot to begin any serious Cotton collection. In those days, Cotton was into soul as well as blues – witness his raucous versions of "Knock on Wood" and "Turn on Your Lovelight," backed by a large horn complement. Compiler Dick Shurman has chose judiciously from his uneven pair of Verve follow-ups, making for a very consistent compilation.

Four Chicago harmonica greats, one eminently solid album. Teamed with Junior Wells, Billy Branch, and Carey Bell, Cotton sings Willie Love's Delta classic "Little Car Blues" and Charles Brown's "Black Night." Wells trades harp solos and vocals, standing front and center on a fine rendition of Sonny Boy II's "Keep Your Hands Out of My Pockets" and the tailor-made "Somebody Changed the Lock" and "Broke and Hungry," obviously relishing the camaraderie between himself and his fellow harmonica giants.

Deep in the Blues is a fascinating jam session between James Cotton, guitarist Joe Louis Walker, and jazz bassist Charlie Haden. The trio runs through a number of classic blues songs written by Muddy Waters, Percy Mayfield, and Sonny Boy Williamson and a few originals by Walker and Cotton. The sound is intimate and raw, which is a welcome change from Cotton's usual overproduced records.
