Through With Cool is Al Basile's 19th solo artist release, and the third he has produced. It features 14 new Al Basile songs, with a band comprised of current and former Duke Robillard Band and Roomful of Blues members, and adds BMA nominated best guitarist Kid Andersen to the mix, as in last year's release B's Testimony. Al has 8 BMA nominations himself since 2010. His songwriting builds and and extends the whole of blues and roots traditions in a distinctive and accessible way, and his cornet solos come out of mainstream jazz but are adapted to the changing rhythms of contemporary blues.
