I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Jazzhaus Records artist: Danny Bryant - Hurricane - New Release Review

I've just received the newest release (UK release date may 6, 2013) Hurricane by guitar virtuoso Danny Bryant. Bryant, a protege of guitar slinger Walter trout has assembled a solid package of blues rock tracks heavily laden with confident vocals and edgy guitar. Opening with Prisoner Of The Blues, Bryant shows his take no prisoner attitude with strong vocals, fast finger work and stinging vibrato. Greenwood 31 is a really cool track blending early swampy blues roots with Jimi Hendrix flare and his own powerful style. This is a real strong track. Can't Hold On is a more solemn track opening with piano by Richard Hammerton. Constructed as a ballad, Bryant shows his singing chops before digging in on some hot bluesy guitar. Title track Hurricane is a rocker and really structured in the radio track vein. Actually puts me in mind of some of Bowie's work. Devil's Got A Hold On Me is a hot boogie track building into a rocking guitar fest. I'm Broken is a cool blues ballad with sweet guitar work over a heavy bottom provided by Ken Bryant on bass and Trevor Barr on drums. Possibly my favorite track on the recording. Losing You is a prototypical blues ballad for guitar... think Gary Moore. This is a strong track with hot guitar riffs. Bryant uses the entire fretboard for dynamics and it is very successful. The release is concluded with Painkiller, a ballad opening quietly on acoustic guitar and just Bryants voice... but concluded with raw electric pyrotechnics sure to engage any blues rock guitar enthusiast. Hot! If you don't know Bryant's work, this is your chance to check it out!
