Swagger is perhaps the most valuable commodity a musician can possess: to make it all look and sound cool without appearing to try. John Lee Hooker was one of the finest purveyors of 'cool' the world has ever seen, and never is that more evident than on 'A New Leaf'.

John Lee Hooker - A New Leaf

Simple, minimal, and atmospheric; this tune swings to a slow, tasteful blues groove and John Lee croons in his uniquely deep, whiskey laden delta tone.

This track doesn't go out of its way. It doesn't strive for the hook to end all hooks. It just fills the room with supremely cool and effortless sounding blues vibrations.
