Better still, the band's five original tunes -- which variously credit Costello, piano/ organ player Matt Wauchope and harp man Paul Linden as writers -- are among the CD's most memorable cuts, particularly the soulful, gospel-tinged "You're a Part of Me" and the Professor Longhair-styled "Miles Away." The latter is one of three songs on the CD that feature a horn section.
If there's any quibble with the recording, it's a minor one: The estimable talents of Wauchope and Linden don't get much airtime, and both are gifted performers in their own right. However, the emphasis throughout Moanin' for Molasses is not on the skills of the individual players but instead on groove and atmosphere. And that's a refreshing type of virtuosity in its own right.
