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!

Guy on the Rise!


Guy Davis & Fabrizio Poggi's Sonny & Brownie's Last Train
No. 1 On Roots Music Report!

Right On Reviews Coming In
Northport NY - Media and radio have taken quite a shine to Sonny & Brownie's Last Train by the Ambassador of the Blues, Guy Davis and international harmonica sensation Fabrizio Poggi. The homage to Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee, released on March 24, is becoming one of the most celebrated acoustic releases of 2017.

Sonny & Brownie's Last Train is currently no. 1 for the second week in a row on The Roots Music Reports Top 50 Acoustic Blues Albums.  Click the logo to see the entire chart.


Also, very proud that Sonny & Brownie's Last Train was the no. 23 album for the month of March on the 900 station Folk DJ list, even though most stations had not received it until the second week of March. You can see the entire list here,  http://folkradio.org/

For the past week, stations that broadcast the syndicated radio program Music City Roots have been playing a performance that Guy & Fabrizio recorded in late March. If you missed it, you can click the photo of Guy & show host, Jim Lauderdale and listen to it now.

                                           
In more good news, last week Geoffrey Himes of Paste reviewed the show that Guy and Fabrizio performed  in Nashville. You can read it here, https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2017/03/road-music-chapter-twelve-nashville-tennessee.html

Sonny & Brownie’s Last Train is as close as anyone living in the 21st Century will get to enjoying Terry and McGhee in concert. If you love the old masters like I do – or simply are just curious about the way they truly sounded in concert – pick this one up today. It’s Sonny and Brownie live – and taken to another level.   BluesBlast Magazine

On March 24, M.C. Records released Sonny & Brownie’s Last Trai
n by the Ambassador of the Blues, Guy Davis and international harmonica sensation Fabrizio Poggi. The deep, acoustic blues sessions took place in Milan Italy and were recorded live in the studio. The result captured the special musical connection that Guy and Fabrizio possess from the years of playing and recording together. You can also listen and download the new release with lyrics via Airplay Direct by clicking the cover.

                                            

Guy Davis explains the concept of the recording, Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry were two musicians whose work will not be surpassed, let alone improved on. This musical opus, was produced by Fabrizio Poggi. It features our combined musical talents, and is not meant to compete with the originals. It’s meant to be a love letter to Brownie and Sonny signed by the both of us. They were two of my favorites.
This is highly recommended! - Making A Scene
