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!

Luca Burgalassi - Windward - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Windward, from Luca Burgalassi and it's soothing and nicely styled. Opening with title track, Windward, Burgalassi leads the way on vocal and acoustic guitar with a smooth blend of backing vocals and instrumentation sounding a bit like James Taylor or an early Crosby /Nash composition. Nice start. With it's calypso rhythm, The Turn is next with a cool bass rhythm by Giacomo Bertaccini and solid percussion by Gianni Apicella. Next up with a smooth boss nova pace on Fields of Innocence, Matteo Fusaro adds clean piano as the track just glides on a cloud. The Sweetest Blues is one of my favorites with nice melodic turns and slick, blues fused guitar riffs and nicely melded vocal harmonies.  Don't Waste Your Time has the strongest radio style melody, complimented by additional harp work and nicely articulated acoustic guitar riffs by Burgalassi. On Down On Me, the band gets a really nice jazzy feel with a serious bass groove by Daniele Nannini. Solid vocal harmonies and well placed guitar riffs throughout this release really give it a special life. Wrapping the release is Winter Lady, another jazzy track but with the addition of banjo and steel guitar by Burgalassi giving it a euro country feel. This is a very nice closer to a very solid release.
