Big-T & the Bada-Bings


The Yalloppin' Hounds
New Yalloppin' City

Following up on their hugely popular 1999 debut, Ghetto Swing Extreme!, The Yalloppin' Hounds have finally released their second album, New Yalloppin' City (Yallopin' Entertainment). The record features a new line up, due to the departure of former lead vocalist Queen Esther and trumpet player Lord Sledge. Lead Hound Joey Cavaseno, a.k.a. G-Clef, has combed the five boroughs of New York City to assemble a talented bunch of young replacements. With solid backing, Cavaseno once again proves that he is a masterful lyricist and jazz musician, who over the past several years has helped lead and pioneer jazz and hip-hop into what is now being referred to as "Swing-hop."

New Yalloppin' City opens with a reprise appearance by Lord Sledge on vocals, lending a Sammy Davis touch to "Romantic Thugz." "Sun Ray" is perhaps one of the best arrangements of Cavaseno's career with The Hounds and spotlights new vocalist Vickie Natale. "You're Taken" is the heartfelt sequel to "Where Have You Been?" (Ghetto Swing Extreme!), which features bassist Peter Hartman on vocals. He again shares vocal duties with Cavaseno on "Keep It Tight" and "Jacquet, Here's Your Jacket." On the hip-hop tip, "Thugbrat" tells the tale of an affluent young girl who likes to hang out with the "gangstaz" in a fun blend of rap and swing that you will likely hear on dance floors across the nation. Overall, this album is striking because it plays on so many different levels. From upbeat dance numbers to soul searching ballads, Cavaseno and The Hounds have kept their stride.
