Jim Fitting, master of the harmonica, and a Boston legend (who's career began with The Sex Execs, Treat Her Right and the The) has broken new ground with his band Coots, featuring Evan Harriman on electric piano, Bill "The King" Kane on bass and Jerome Deupree on drums. Sophisticated songwriting is caught up with the psychedelic charms of these masters of Americana roots swamp pop.
"...when you're thinking about [harmonica] players who've been in a handful of influential bands and who've explored a range of styles with the harmonica as their one and only ax, the list begins and ends with Jim Fitting."
(The Boston Phoenix)
"Harmonica player extraordinaire."
-The Boston Herald
"A master musician."
(The Boston Globe)
Message From The Seventh Dimension
As Windjam Records' spearhead release, Coots deliver a debut CD that sets a high water mark for the label.
"...exceptional new album... slick and slippery style of roots music... This is a significant group with an equally remarkable sound and on this disc they shine as brightly as any dimension will allow. Prime listening by the discerning listener will prove to be better than any award The Coots could receive for this outstanding disc. It should also be noted that former Morphine members Billy Conway and Dana Colley... make guest appearances, lending their qualified talents to this already over qualified release"
"The 7th Dimension is a groove... They do know how to both relax and charm with chuckles at the same time. Figure out a Grammy name for that, and our Coots will win it."
"...transcends all blues, folk, rock and country by delving straight into a fresh new sound..."
"The musicianship in this band is remarkable and the songwriting is nothing less than classic."
