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!

Wide Willie Productions artist: CD Woodbury Band - Monday Night! - New Release Review

I just received the newest release, Monday Night!, from CD Woodbury and its quite good! Opening with upbeat shuffle tune The Blues keep me Right Here, Woodbury wastes no time establishing firm footing as a solid vocalist and band leader. Chris Kliemann plays some really tasty keys on this track and sets the table for a healthy helping of Woodbury's guitar chops. Mean Jenny brings to mind an old Johnny Winter song with a rocky, New Orleans style blues track. Again Kliemann plays effortlessly on the keys complimenting Woodbury on vocal, Don Montana on drums and Mike Fish on bass. Been So Long is a hard driving, bass laden, boogie with Mike Marinig on sax. Title track, Monday Night! is built around a funky groove and really hot horn a'la Bourbon Street by Marinig. Pawn Shop is the guitar fans oasis with absolutely scorching guitar work by Woodbury on a basic 12 bar format. Definitely one not to be missed. Ring-A-Ding is a swing blues with sax and boogie piano. Top rate vocals, sax, keys and guitar make this one of the top tracks on the release. Burn The Bridge is a smokin' funky dance number with really cool horn and guitar work. SauBall Blues is a midtempo jazz/blues excursion. There are some really nice instrumental components on this track making it another track so different from the rest but a very nice addition as well as conclusion to a seriously nice release.
