CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

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!

New Jimmy Vivino video
Jimmy Vivino has just released a video introducing "13 Live," his new album with his re-assembled Black Italians band, a heralded ensemble he put together in the early 90's during a residency at New York City's Downtime Bar.  Spotlighted are outstanding singer Catherine Russell and harmonica player Felix Cabrera.
To see the video, please click HERE.
Vivino, who serves as the bandleader and musical director of the Conan TV show's "The Basic Cable Band," recorded the album in front of a live audience at Levon Helm's beautiful barn studio in Woodstock, NY.
The album intersperses Jimmy's original songs with covers of tunes by the likes of Bob Dylan, James Brown, Traffic, Johnny Winter, and The Band, rousing renditions of roots standards and "Third World blues with New Orleans swagger."
