Hicksters rejoice! The Walkin' One and Only Dan Hicks returns to the Kuumbwa with the Hot Licks to deliver his special brand of wry musings to the masses. As the author of several classic tunes, I Scare Myself; Where's The Money?; How Can I Miss You When You Won't Go Away?; and Canned Music; Hicks' songwriting style infuses the steady 4/4 guitar swing of Django Reinhardt with the lyrical wit of Fats Waller and the country blues of Jimmy Rogers. Dan calls it Folk Swing, but whatever you call it, it's finger-pickin' fun. Get aboard the train to Hicksville!
