Well, blues fans, get ready to be wooed! Tommy Z’s new album, Sometimes, came across our desk today, and all we can say is “Wow!” Here’s a player that has paid his dues and put in his time.
This Time Another Year is a Brandon Santini showcase, simmering in places, and smoking in others. The album is mixed very well, and lets the music speak in a spirited voice.
Kim Wilson’s singing has never been better! His harp playing is inspired, but brilliantly restrained, making it all the more poignant. Again, the band does a spectacular job, and the playing is impressive throughout. This is an excellent album, and definitely worth the long wait.
Today marks the 30th anniversary of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s landmark debut album, Texas Flood.
Hadden Sayers had made his success the hard way; he has earned it. He has talent and he’s honed that talent playing over 200 gigs a year. He has persisted in the face of shady deals, less than honest agents, and crooked record labels. But above everything else is his love of soul, desire to succeed, and dedication to playing some seriously mean guitar.
When we think about the great live albums, we often think about the great live bands that made them….
Johnny Winter: Live From Japan is a great window into where Johnny Winter is, and how far he has come on his road to recovery.
Throwback blues from Rockabilly to New Orleans, with a “live” sound quality that evokes a Jimmy Vaughan feel, the Wailers drive home an incredible album.
Going into its 7th year this Friday, June 22 at Music City Theater in Linden, the 2012 T-Bone Walker Blues Fest continues a powerful tradition for charity!
We got the chance to speak with the powerful Texas cannonball Reverend K.M. Williams, an ordained minister and a striking modern version of old Texas country bluesmen like Lightnin’ Hopkins and guitar evangelists like Blind Willie Johnson. Check out what K.M. had to say!
