13 new songs by Chris Jagger and his band - Malcolm Mortimer, Paul Emile, Charlie Hart & Ed Deane. It's both cajun & hillbilly, rootsy & bluesy too, with fine playing & some guest appearances notably by bassist Danny Thompson & percussion master Gaspar Lawal. Primarily it's a band record with Chris at the wheel. Ed Deane returns from his spell with Nick Lowe to sound as vintage as ever & Charlie Hart continues in the line he once followed with Ronnie Lane's 'Slim Chance'. This great album has been produced by Chris Jagger with assist from Charlie Hart and Chris Kimsey. (executive producer M.P. Jagger)

Chris Jagger concert

Chris Jagger's 'Atcha' concert in Kufstein, Austria, was one of the author's best concerts ever
It's was a special warm up-gig for 'Atcha's' following Europe tour. The audience of about 150 people had an unforgettable experience.
Chris opened the concert warmly and after his second song, the great "Channel Fever", he invited the audience to come closer to the stage for better communication.

The concert itself was Rock, Blues and Zydeco, some very fast country style, but also a lot of great lyrics and some impressive ballads as well. The whole concert was full of energy, which 'Atcha' gave to the audience.
Most impressive was the charme of the band !
Chris introduced his songs in rather good German, and danced and played the washboard amongst the audience. Wow!
Charlie Hart played wonderfully on both Fiddle and Accordion, working together perfectly with Chris and the audience. Charlie seemed to be a little shy, but felt comfortable enough with the audience to play along with some conversation.

Ed Deane was incredible on guitar !
His guitar, supported by Paul Emile on bass and Malcolm Mortimer on the drums, was more than impressive!
By the way, thanks for the great conversation and fun we had !

Chris Jagger concert

Chris sings about his family, 'Crazy': brother likes to get up on the stage and raise the hullabaloo...

Chris also asked the audience for a keyboard player to play with him. He found one, of course, but where is the live CD of this great experience ?

Chris, thanks a lot for this great show !

a great album far from commercial ideas, but great music ! Charlie Hart on fiddle and accordion (as well as producer) and Ed Deane on guitars, make this record a wonderful listening experience.
