This is the first official "auto-production" release by Lil' Red Records! We met Chicago guitar legend and producer, Dave Specter, at his club Space.
After listening to our live CD he expressed his interest in coming on as the producer and featured guitarist. Lil' Red & The Rooster's Soul Burnin' is composed of 12 original songs with two instrumentals recorded, mixed and mastered by Grammy winner Blaise Barton at JoyRide Studio in Chicago. A true American/French collaboration Jennifer “Lil’ Red" Milligan & Pascal “Rooster” Fouquet are joined by the dynamite French rhythm section Abdell B. Bop on upright bass and Denis Agenet on drums. American award winning boogie & blues pianist Ricky Nye added keys and Shaun Booker, Jeff Morrow and Caroline Rau on vocals also joined the mix. Touching and refreshing with bite and humor, their original songs come from their love for those old jazzy blues and post-war rhythm & blues. “It’s a cry for love!” says Lil’ Red “The current climate of political turmoil, violence, racism and bigotry makes my soul burn. May the Blues heal and bring us together through the awareness of beauty in difference.”
