Big Head Todd & the Monsters

In another lifetime, Todd Park Mohr would be writing and arranging for soulful blues singers, artists cast in the mold of Bobby Blue Bland and Little Milton. At the heart of last week's show was sufficient evidence that Mohr's band has transcended its blues jam roots and evolved into a crisp performing team with a boatload of catchy songs on board.

With:
Todd Park Mohr, Brian Nevin, Rob Squires, Corey Mauser, Hazel Miller.

Winding up a 30-date tour in support of the new Revolution disc “Beautiful World,” Big Head Todd & the Monsters are a model of precision, both in shifting from a variety of snappy tempos and styles (funk, pop, blues) and in performing. As steady as they are as a trio, the addition of organist Corey Mauser increases the picture’s hue immensely, invigorating a song such as “Bittersweet” (from the platinum 1993 disc “Sister Sweetly”) into a marvelous hit that should have been.

“Beautiful World’s” first two singles, “Resignation Superman” and “Please Don’t Tell Her,” are rock ‘n’ roll’s best one-two punch of 1997, a fuel to launch a more-potent BHT express.
