Nick Moss Band feat. Dennis Gruenling (from the album Get Your Back In to It! available on Alligator Records) (by Bryant Liggett)
Nick Moss has a kick ass band. Toss harmonica player Dennis Gruenling into the mix and you’ve got a full package of badass Rhythm & Blues, a solid team that boogies and bounces, which is exactly what they do on their latest in Get Your Back In to It!. This is grind-on-the-dance-floor Blues, an upbeat explosion of ‘mighty fine playing’ as is expressed in the albums first cut. And what an opener it is… ‘don’t fall for the bait, you won’t struggle in the snare’ the Nick Moss Band offering the advice in “Bait in the Snare”. Out of the gate guitar licks are traded with harmonica solos, and a fun pace is set from track number one, and that pace rolls for another 13 tracks.
As killer as the lyrical cuts are from this Chicago Blues ensemble, dropping sharp cuts with killer verbal wit, they also nail instrumentals. “Out of the Woods” is bouncy with horns and Hammond organ blasts while “Bones Cantina” is delivered with a tropical vibe. Drop this record into the timeless category, as “Lonely Fool” is as much 1953 as it is 2023. Get Your Back In to It! closes with “Scratch and Sniff” which is as much Ventures inspired, So-Cal Surf Rock as it is traditional Blues album representing the best of Chicago.
Exciting. Traditional. Smoking and fun, The Nick Moss Band is a rocking’ Blues force, with Get Your Back In to It! worthy of an upfront spot in the eternal killer record canon. (by Bryant Liggett)
