VizzTone proudly announces the September 29 release of Somebody Put Bad Luck On Me, Bob Corritore’s latest masterpiece collection of newly recorded songs featuring a spectacular offering of today’s top blues artists. Bob’s brilliant harmonica work is the connecting thread, effortlessly tying together a great variety of blues styles and always serving the song.
This album differs from Corritore’s Vaults Series albums in that these are all freshly recorded tracks and it reflects the best aspects of the blues world that we live in right now. Guest vocalists include Bobby Rush, Thornetta Davis, John Primer, Carl Weathersby, Johnny Rawls, Francine Reed, Oscar Wilson, Eugene Hideaway Bridges, Tia Carroll, Diunna Greenleaf, Willie Buck, Jimi Primetime Smith, Sugaray Rayford, and Lurrie Bell.
And of course it’s the Bob Corritore production touch that seems to bring out different and extra cool aspects of each artist’s performance. He keeps upping his game with presentations of great vocalists, musicians, songs, and vibes. Listening to this album is like going to the best possible blues festival filled with one heartfelt performance after another.
In case you missed it: listen to the first single, “I’m Good As Gone,” featuring blues icon and Grammy winner Bobby Rush! Co-produced by Bob Corritore and Clarke Rigsby, the lineup includes drum legend Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Average White Band, Eric Clapton) and organist Chester Thompson (Santana, Tower of Power). Guitarists Dexter Allen and Jimi “Primetime” Smith deliver a powerful and driving groove, pairing consummately with Rush’s vocals that continue to bristle with vitality. Corritore the harmonica ace sparsely teases his way around the vocals until breaking out into an emphatic solo.
