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!

Guitar Jack Wargo - Keepin' It Real - New release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the newest release, Keepin' It Real, by Guitar Jack Wargo and it's a soulful mix of R&B, Blues, Pop and Jazz. Opening with solid blues number, You Don't Feel The Same, AD Beal leads on vocal and Wargo shows his guitar prowess with stiff in you face guitar riffs that will have you nodding your head. Backed by Edoardo Tancredi on drums, Matt Bragg on bass and Arlan Oscar Shierbaum on Hammond, this is a super opener. On Power of Love, the band gets more into an easy, Donald Fagan style groove with it's swaying rhythm and smooth melodic feel. Turning up the funk a bit, Keep On Keepin' On is a bright jazz rock track with nice bluesy guitar riffs and a strong melody. Another track that really slides in the Steely Dan groove is Inventory Blues. Bragg gets the bass popping on Shipwrecked giving the track a particularly funky feel, highlighted by Shierbaum keyboard work and super vocals by Beal. This gives a really nice opening for Wargo to slash nicely with super tone on his guitar solo. Ballad, Only-est One has a warm, soul feel and Beal really steps up taking the lead. This is a really ideal radio track. Very nice. One of my favorite tracks on the release is Mayfield like, Blues Holiday. Backing vocals by Willie Chambers, Sweet Inspiration, Jacqui Walker Adamcik and James Whitney give the track even more warmth. Very nice. Wrapping the release is Sending Out A Message, a solid closer with rich backing vocals a strong melody and some of Tancredi's snappiest riffs on the release .
