I don’t care how old Buddy Guy is, he’s still outta sight!
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.
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.
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.
This is an album of traditional blues that is well and sparsely played. No, not parsley, sparsely.
One thing I appreciate is his ability to play the harp in different styles and the one that suits the song.
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.
If you’re not a Bonnie fan, this album is the best reason I can think of to get on board.
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.
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?”
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.
Eight of the twelve songs are up-tempo rockers, two are mid-tempo, one is gospel and one is a slow blues waltz.
