Paul Oscher is the real deal. He plays only unadulterated, down-in-the–alley, gutbucket blues. He is not a retro player – he just plays the blues the way he learned them and feels them… lowdown and lonesome. He has been doing so for the past fifty years, from the time he joined the Muddy Waters Blues Band in 1967 while still in his teens. He has won two BMA awards for “Down in the Delta” and has had 9 BMA nominations for his other releases. No matter what instrument Paul touches, be it guitar, harp, or piano, he makes it sing the deep blues.

And that’s why “Cool Cat” is such a great release. It is pure Paul Oscher, with beautiful old style blues timing and great stories that plant exotic pictures in your mind. On every track the instruments talk to one another, each one giving you a piece of the story. Paul sings a line, answers it with a powerful lick, and the band responds in kind. The playing is direct and forceful – nothing is tentative. And it’s all infused with Paul’s strong personality and distinctive view of the world. You’ll laugh and nod in agreement as Miss Lavelle White tells the story of the “Dirty Dealin’ Mama”. You’ll shake your head in despair at “Poor Man Blues”. You’ll see whole films in your head while listening to “Mississippi” and “Ain’t That A Man”. “Money Makin’ Woman” will take you to New Orleans and “Hide Out Baby” will bring you to the south side of Chicago. Even “On The Edge”, Paul’s venture into jazz territory, is steeped in blues feeling. The cunning and seductive charm of “Work That Stuff” evokes memories of Sonny Boy Williamson (Rice Miller). Then there is the unforgettable title track “Cool Cat”, with its evocative prologue, where Paul in his own words tells a story about a Wino with a cat named Cool Cat tied to his waist who was walking down the street in front of Muddy Waters house and the wino started playing this beautiful melody on a recorder and all the kids in the area started following him dancing and clapping. This is how the song “Cool Cat” came to be. Paul includes two versions of “Cool Cat” on the CD - a short swinging jazz one and a longer very danceable R&B style one which is used to wrap up the recording. Paul’s piano played during “Cool Cat” conjures up the spirit of the Wino’s plastic recorder playing, as the chorus sings “He’s a Cool Cat” and a line of dancing children follow the piper towards the horizon. This is the stuff that has made the blues so timeless and compelling, and Paul Oscher delivers it with no punches pulled.
