Big Papa and The TCB can best be described as a jump blues band. Their instrumental heritage is rooted in the big band era, as a saxophone and trumpet carry the sound while a piano fills in around the edges. The lyrics and vocals move the sound over to the blues, as band leader/guitarist/vocalist Chris Thayer is able to write about life while creating music that is mainly up-tempo and catchy. Their new album, A Six Pack Of Cool, is a nice modern day fusion of two distinct American musical styles.
