Here’s another track from my new album, Lost Time, with my brother Phil. “Mister Kicks” was witten by the late, vastly underrated jazz/blues poet, Oscar Brown Jr. We got to hang with Mr Brown back in 1984 (at a benefit show with my friend Willie Dixon) and he was stunned that we knew the lyrics to so many of his old songs. He was a very talented and very nice man. Phil and I have loved “Mister Kicks” since we were teenage hepcats and I hope you dig it too.
