THE KID & NIC SHOW " Goin' Downtown "
( Self - released ) 2009.
CD - USA
Swing/revival/rhythm and blues
There's no doubt that The Kid & Nic Show are important revival act on USA scene. Fronted by female-male pair, Nicole Tracy on vocals and Kirk Tracy on saxophone, harmonica and vocals, with their band in the back, constantly are in the saddle, and their concert shows are recognized as a some sort of enjouable and pleasent happenings. Musically, Kid & Nic are faithfull to revival options, locate somewhere between 30's and 50s period of previous century. So, in its sound we can find many swing elements, rockabilly and rhythm and blues traces, and many melodic lines/phrases/choruses as well. " Goin' Downtown" is its 4th issue, and this is some sort of compilation of previous 3 albums.
We can find here a 10 enjouable and well-produced tracks, some authors works and some naturally covers, but in every aspects, a group has offered a pleasent atmosphere, good rockin' rhythms and refine melodicity. Generally, Kid and Nic were done an excellent job, and finally I would recomand a song " Mystify", to my taste as a specially convinceble part of album materials.
