For C.W. Stoneking, ‘unexpected’ is the default setting. It’s easiest to describe C.W. Stoneking as a blues artist, but the term disguises what makes his music special. It’s a 1920s pre-war blues sound, but there are also helpings of New Orleans jazz, jugband music, hokum, country, and calypso, and he’s lately brought in elements of jump jive, early rock’n’roll, and gospel. His gift is that he brings them all together without anything sounding out of place.
