A nu-bop version to what's happening then...now! This is hard bop with a west coast swinging so grab your sweet other's hand and do some half time. This is more physical, then cerebral Bacchus celebration. We played Bobby Troup's "Route 66." Let's be clear about this, De Merle would bring the house down in Vegas with this DeMerle-a-la-mena. You open and ratchet up a first listen on this new one and you'll know for sure. The DeMerle Band jumps, stands up for the bop and swings in a mellow glow with many classics. As Lou would attest, get up and bop yourself! The coup on this is Jimmy Witherspoon, spinning some R&B wheels, "Going To Chicago" and "Money's Gettin' Cheaper" with smiling
Lou and the band.
