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!

American Showplace Music artist: Sean Chambers - Trouble & Whiskey - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Trouble & Whiskey, by Sean Chambers and it's a real rocker. Opening with foot stomper, I Need Your Lovin', blends the drive of Robert Johnson's Crossroads with the swagger of ZZ Top. Joined by Kris Schnebelen on drums, Todd Cook on bass and Michael Hensley on Hammond B3 and piano, this band is tight. On Bottle Keeps Staring at Me, Chambers vocals are bold and his slide guitar work fiery. On title track, Trouble & Whiskey, Chambers slows things down demonstrating just how soulful his playing can be. With excellent phrasing and hot technique, this track is smoking! With a nod to Joe Walsh, Travelin' North has a cool rock flare and contemporary blues guitar riffs. Hensley really lays into the B3 on this one giving the track even more girth and carrying the track forward to Chambers final hot riff. Very nice! Sweeter Than A Honey Bee has a cool country rock 2 step feel. Think Call Me the Breeze or Give Me A T for Texas. Rich guitar tones open Handyman, a hot rocker with sting. On Johnny Winter's, Be Careful With A Fool, Chambers stays away from Winter's extremely explosive riff but throws flames of his own and with some of my favorite vocals on the release, makes this one of my favorites on the release. Excellent! Wrapping the release is Gonna Groove, a funk rocker with slick jazzy guitar riffs and warm slide details. This is a really nice track to close a really good release.
