The appropriately titled record "When A Blue Note Turns Red Hot", is a mixture of
great, classic music styles- from old school Rhythm and Blues or black Rock and
Roll, to a touch of Stax Soul plus Sam Cooke, or even a jazzy Bossa Nova. This is
Little Rachel's third solo record, and the first one with the Hogs of Rhythm. Little
Rachel performed with Timo Tarkela and Harri Saanio of the Hogs at the Green Bay Rockin 50's Fest in 2005. Soon afterwards, she went to Finland to borrow the entire band from their regular singer, Dr. Snout (Ari Ahvonen) for several performances. It was a magical combination from the start, and recording an album together became a priority. The record was recorded in August of 2008 in Helsinki, Finland, and released on the Goofin' Records label in May of 2009. It was produced and mixed by Jyrki Häyrinen- the man behind the Barnshakers' sound. It includes Lester Peabody on lead guitar, the powerful sax section of Juho Hurskainen and Timo Tarkela, and also the vocal group, The Relics, on two of the tracks.
The Hogs of Rhythm are virtuosos of old style music- able to play everything from
rock n' roll, to blues, to jazz. They have a true skill and knowledge for how old
style, rockin' rhythm and blues should be played, and they make a powerful union
with the versatile, soulful, rockin' rhythm of the Little Rachel style. She is
little, but she is loud. She sparkles and shines, and her soulful, sexy, sassiness
is complimented by the excitement of the hard-driving, dirty swing that only the
Hogs of Rhythm can provide. There is something for everyone who loves music on this record. Once you hear the sensational, soulful rhythm and blues of Kansas City and Helsinki's finest, together- Little Rachel and the Hogs of Rhythm- you will know just what happens "When A Blue Note Turns Red Hot".
