Charlie Wood Flutter And Wow

Charlie Wood’s latest release Flutter and Wow is a rollicking, keyboardinfused prayer meeting. The Memphis-born and now London-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist comes into his own on this gutsy, grooving album, produced by Norah Jones alum Adam Levy. With a song list culled from the catalogues of some of today’s greatest songsmiths (Paul Simon, Elvis Costello, and Tom Waits, to name a few), Wood heaps a healthy dose of piano, B-3, and Wurlitzer alongside his soulful vocals. He even contributes more than a few impressive originals to the mix. On Simon’s “American Tune,” Wood works the Hammond organ like a church pew pro, pulling pulpit-like chords from its double manuals. And on his own “Doin’ the Blah Blah Blah,” his piano takes us to Mardi Gras for a rocking, rolling good time. Definitely worth the price of admission. (Archer Records, charliewood.us )
