Diggin’: Captain Luke & Cool John Ferguson – Chokin’ Kind
inDiggin'on November 4, 2015
Captain Luke and Cool John Ferguson created Outsider Lounge Music, a unique blend of deep baritone singing and smooth electric guitar that is a style reserved for it’s originators alone. Captured and recorded on their self-titled album, Outsider Lounge Music is one of those CD’s at Music Maker that does not get passed around very often, due in large part to the album’s magic ability to disappear and never return once it’s been “borrowed.”
“Chokin’ Kind” appears on the album as one of a handful of songs that revolve around the push and pull of falling in and out of love, which, if you’re familiar with the Captain’s music, you know there’s nobody better to guide you through such matters. With a steady forward-moving rhythm flowing out of Cool John’s guitar, Captain’s song of finding new love has the perfect tempo to guide his words of wisdom along. Outsider Lounge Music is definitely in my top 3 of Music Maker albums, and if you do plan on ordering a copy, it might be a good idea to pick up at least one extra just in case.
For readers in and around the Triangle, this weekend marks the long anticipated tribute concert to Captain Luke at the Carrboro ArtsCenter, “Two-Ten and a Quarter: Music Maker Relief Foundation presents a tribute to Captain Luke with Cool John Ferguson, Sol Creech, Bubba Norwood, John Dee Holeman & More!” The show is this Friday, November 6th and starts at 8pm. Tickets are $12 in advance, and $15 day of the show (get them here!) Just by looking at the lineup, I can tell you right now this is definitely not a show you want to miss.
