Album Notes
She Put the Voodoo On Me is the mesmerizing new CD from Khalif Wailin' Walter featuring hypnotic Blues and aphrodisiacal Funk. The Chicago native son conjures up his unique musical vision in this concoction of 11 enchanting original songs written, arranged, and produced by Khalif. Throughout the first half of the CD His musical talisman is traditional Chicago Blues and Khalif works it magically. The songs "Big-Bootyed Woman", "Ghost Train", & "My Guitar and These Blues" are sacrificial offerings to the great Blues Shamen Albert King, Freddie King, Albert Collins, & Otis Rush. Make no mistake about it; these are not smoke and mirrors copies of the tried and true 12 bar formula. Khalif entrancingly tells his own story in his own way throughout the entire CD. These charms are spun by Hammond B-3 Organist Mo Fuhrhop (Henrik Freischlader Band), Drummer Alex "Showtime" Lex (Aaron Burton band, Keith Dunn Band, Louisiana Red Band), & Erkan Ozdemir (Memo Gonzalez Band, Tad Robinson). The second half of the CD is filled with supercalifunkin'Bluesy grooves. The tunes include the title track "She Put the Voodoo On Me" & "I Need A New Job". Khalif was hexed by several musical influences outside of the blues including Prince, Michael Jackson, & Santana and their sublime influence is present in Khalif's own brand of hypnotic FUNK. The spell of these supernatural grooves is cast by Mo Fuhrhop on Hammond B-3 Organ, Lukas Kochbeck on Drums, Daniel "The Funkmachine" Hopf on Bass. The mythical spirit of Memphis Stax sound is revisited on the opening track "Let 'Em In" & the soul filled anthem "Still You Stand" with added sorcery from Boney Fields (James Brown Band , Luther Allison Band) on trumpet and Tommy Schneller (2012 Best Blues CD German Music Award winner) on Tenor Sax. Khalif Wailin' Walter wields wizardry with his prestidigious guitar work mystically flowing from funky rhythms to tender crying bends to aural string sacrifices on the neck. His voice is a passionate alluring instrument in its own right possessing a bewitching blend of power, haunted hints of New Orleans style vocalist, and several different shades of texture and color on the varied musical illusions. Khalif has performed in the Chicago Blues Festival in 2001, 2003, and 2007. He has toured the EU and headlined festivals in U.K.,Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, Sweden, Croatia, Czech Republic, Holland,Belgium, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia. He was a 4 year member of the Lonnie Brooks Blues Band and nephew of and performed in the band of Blues great Carl Weathersby. He has appeared on stage with such Blues giants as Grammy Winner Taj Mahal, Grammy Winner Otis Rush, The Jimmy Vaughan Band, The Buddy Guy Band, Junior Wells, Bernard Allison, Grammy winner and W.C Handy winner Pinetop Perkins, 2-time Grammy nominee Billy Branch, Grammy Winner Sugar Blue, Larry McCray, Paul Lamb, Tad Robinson, Curtis Salgado, Keith Dunn, Delmark Record's Toronzo Cannon, Kenny "Beedy Eyes" Smith, Blues Music award winner Louisiana Red, and A.C.Reed. Khalif Wailin' Walter has The Blues in his blood and its sacred presence flows in his music on this CD. The beat will captivate your hands and feet and your soul will be a spellbound zombie to the groove. In Khalif’s own words "I Got My Own Kinda Groove"...and oh yeah, he does!!!
