Album Review: Zero-2-Sixty
From Tulsa, Oklahoma, the self-taught guitarist got his start in the blues business touring in the backing band for Oklahoma legend, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown…
Album Review: The Strongman Blues Remedy
Steve Strongman was shut down by Covid. Don’t let the name fool you, he’s not with the circus, he’s a musician.
Album Review: Good Trouble
Here’s a couple of blues artists that have both recorded and performed as solo acts and in support of others. Annika may be described as soul/gospel, Paul as blues/rock.
Album Review: Everybody Let’s Roll
There ain’t no sitting still when this is playing, you feel the energy from the horns.
Album Review: May Be The Last Time
Elvin Bishop and his trio are backing John up, as well as Kid Anderson and Alabama Mike, and they recorded at Kid’s Greaseland Studio… some of the best blues today come from Greaseland.
Album Review: The Blues Don’t Lie
I don’t care how old Buddy Guy is, he’s still outta sight!
Album Review: ElectroBluesSociety 2016-2022
I’d describe it to you, but since it doesn’t sound like the sounds I’ve heard before, I can’t. There’s a fun aspect to that, and I believe that is the intention.
Album Review: I Am The Moon
What did this band do during lockdown? Clearly, they got busy and didn’t mess around. Their new release, I Am The Moon, is a 4 album set.
Album Review: Putumayo Presents Blues Café
I have absolutely no idea how “Putumayo” is pronounced. There are tracks by some blues legends and a few by performers that are less known, but it’s all the blues we pledge allegiance to.
Album Review: Mississippi Son
This is an album of traditional blues that is well and sparsely played. No, not parsley, sparsely.
Album Review: Harmonica Wolverine
One thing I appreciate is his ability to play the harp in different styles and the one that suits the song.
Album Review: Black Lives
Have any of you folks heard Danny Cox’s song Black Lives? You should. Not because he’s a KC legend, but because it delivers.
Album Review: Just Like That
If you’re not a Bonnie fan, this album is the best reason I can think of to get on board.
Album Review: Yard Sale
Nine songs, eight originals and a cover of Baby Won’t You Please Come Home. Guest musician sitting in on keyboards on four tunes is Victor Wainwright.
Album Review: Golden Girl
Several of these numbers are delivered with sass and that is part of Trudy Lynn’s style. “If your phone don’t ring, it was me”, “Is it cold in here or is it you?”
Album Review: Live at Efes Pilsen Blues Festival 1997 EP
A wayward collective themselves, of shifting experimental improvisationalists, this cd captures the band before they drifted into Turkish Underground Psyche Extravaganza and ended in 1998.
Album Review: Bringin’ In The Blues
Eight of the twelve songs are up-tempo rockers, two are mid-tempo, one is gospel and one is a slow blues waltz.
Album Review: Pickin’ Up Trash
Five songs, three by Tom, one by Dave and a cover of Stranger’s Blues. Longer than a single, shorter than an album.
Album Review: Bring It
This is Miss Bix’s second blues release. Keeshea Pratt, an IBC winner, joins in on Red Walls, a song about racial inequality.
