by Rick Estrin and the Nightcats

Rick Estrin ranks among the best harp players, singers and songwriters in the blues world. He returns with his band, The Nightcats, to bring you One Wrong Turn, a slice of original deep blues with a simmering, funky rock edge.

The album features 12 new songs including the laugh-out-loud "(I Met Her On The) Blues Cruise," the spaghetti-western style instrumental "The Legend of Taco Cobbler” and the lowdown blues of "Broke And Lonesome." One listen makes it clear that these are four world-class musicians who form one of the tightest & most original bands in any genre.

Estrin won the 1994 Blues Music Award for his composition My Next Ex-Wife and has written songs for a growing legion of other musicians.

"Hugely entertaining, wickedly cool blues and roots rock with a twist…" —Living Blues
