Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks - "Tangled Tales" (video / tour dates)

Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks and released their new album Tangled Tales today and yesterday Christel Loar raved about the album saying of Hicks that he is "a man and musician who’s spent the last 40 years defying classification. He and his band the Hot Licks bring a little blues and a little country, a dash of jazz and a bit of bluegrass, all sewn up in some swing to its sound. Of course, there’s always plenty of Hicks’s singular lyrical prowess. With a dry wit and sharp turn of phrase, his rhymes are unusual and often unpredictable, his delivery is delightful, and his timing is impeccable." Here's his new video from the album as well as upcoming tour dates.
