Connecticut's Ryan Hartt & the Blue Hearts are young East Coast masters of the jumping West Coast sound. Hartt's a stunning harp player with crazy chops and some of Bill Clarke's dramatic flair. His band (Nick Toscano on drums and Steve Combs on bass) swings hard, and guitarist Eric Ducoff has just the right tone and dictionary of preposterous phrases and quotations to make this kind of music cook. Each cut shifts shape with every listen-it sounds as if the Blue Hearts logged a ton of bandstand time with these songs before recording "Empty Wallet" in two days' time. Having Rick Holmstrom produce couldn't hurt; he contributes guitar to a few tracks, as do Troy Gonyea and Nick Adams. Highlights abound: There's the Little Walterish "On My Mind," the Jimmy Reed-style shuffle "New Love, Old Love," the nasty "I'd Be a Fool," and the devastating closer, "North of Franklin."
