Multi-genre avant-garde pioneer Elliott Sharp’s "Momentum Anomaly” suite seems less a formal composition in the traditional sense than a living, breathing, yet-evolving expression woven from the prolific NYC composer’s ongoing explorations technical and artistic in nature. Despite being a personal favorite of Sharp’s, Momentum Anomaly is a story never twice told the same when played live, its core expanded upon and reborn with each retelling. The performances are informed in part by memory, preserving a general structure with anchoring themes and phrases shared, but each realization emerges unique, reflecting the flexible vocabulary of the master’s intuitive connection to his physical tools as well as internal palette du moment.

WALTER TROUT brought down the house at Moe's Alley this past May, here combining his effortlessly blazing guitar talent and passion-infused vocals with the solid bones of the blues classic "Cold Cold Feeling" to deliver some truly “down and dirty blues”. Trout’s audience is absolutely smitten, for reasons quite clear!
“I learned this song from Mr. Albert Collins,” Walter Trout announces mid-song. "Cold Cold Feeling" itself, however, dates further back. Relatively unsung music hero Jessie Mae Robinson had composed this killer tune nearly 30 years prior to Collins's 1978 electric version. T-Bone Walker was the first to record "Cold Cold Feeling", in 1951. In contrast with Collins's silky-smooth groovin' approach, T-Bone's is all sass and dazzles with a sultrier swing. The song has since been covered numerous times through the decades, and Trout's version is a must-hear! (This live version was filmed on the fly using in-camera audio).
