    Ellis Hooks - Another Saturday MorningEllis Hooks - Another Saturday Morning

    Gritty, forceful, and steeped in the tradition of James Brown and Junior Wells, Ellis Hooks has put out a Nashville recording loaded with soul and horns from Memphis, Tennessee. Slinky guitar lines soaked with groove and ballads that cross over into Country are to be expected, as the production focuses on his vocal groove as opposed to his rhythm guitar lines. Wilson Pickett’s producer and guitarist Jon Tiven convinced Hooks to record this record when he was considering moving back to Alabama to work as a preacher. Convinced to record again, “Another Saturday Morning” was put together as an amalgamation of southern sounds, focusing on Hook’s immense vocal presence.
