He plays guitar like a demon, wears natty threads, sings catchy tunes and mutters to himself. The idiosyncratic c.w. stoneking is a true entertainer who relies on musicianship stagecraft and performance to invoke the spirit of the 1920's deep south blues in his original hokum style. Set in an imaginary old-time southern town populated with singing dodo birds, sinister handymen, broken-hearted street singers and old testament field hollerers, the album also features c.w.'s backing band the primitive horn orchestra on a number of tunes. Produced by j. Walker (machine translations) and containing 11 of c.w.'s original numbers, the album is a unique blend of old time blues and jazz that sounds like it was recorded in the 1920's. This is one of the most acclaimed australian albums of the last few years.best blues & roots album (air awards) and album of the year (abc radio national breakfast show 2006)! Cw is such a singular talent that his audience has expanded beyond blues and jazz listeners into mainstream and alternative audiences who have simply never heard anything like him.

In particular I love his rendition of 'Don't go dancing at the Darktown Strutters Ball'. There are also a few tracks of comedic content and the female voice adds greatly to the fake old style settings.
He deserves wider recognition as an innovator working from the past.
