Hood Smoke



The almighty get down is well represented in "Laid Up In Ordinary," the debut recording from Chicago firebomb, Hood Smoke. A groove-driven effusion of straight on soul, funky organ jazz and rock-inspired guitar, Hood Smoke maintains a straight link to bands of the '70s such as Seawind and Rufus. Bassist Bryan Doherty, a versatile and dynamic mainstay on the Chicago music scene, writes the songs and produces the band's albums. His sophisticated, force-of-nature bass lines provide the rhythmic foundation for Sarah Marie Young, winner of the 2011 Montreux Jazz Voice Competition, who blows well beyond her jazz roots to unleash an inner wail that is pristinely articulate yet satisfyingly gritty. The band is solidly rounded out with some of Chicago's finest - drummer Michael Caskey, Rob Clearfield on keyboards and Dave Miller on guitar.
