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!

Nola Blue Records artist: Kathy & The Kilowatts - Premonition of Love - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Premonition of Love, from Kathy & The Kilowatts and it's solid. Opening with surf flavored, First Do No Harm featuring Kathy on lead vocal, with Bill Jones on guitar, Nina Singh giving it just the right snap on drums, Jeff Botta on bass, Dan Torosian on sax and Eric Johnson on trumpet. One of my favorites on the release is Beggars Can't Be Choosers with it's sultry blues feel and nice lead with pinched harmonics by Jones. Lightly seasoned with funk, Always Fooling Me has a bluesy Albert King kind of feel without the characteristic King riffs. Very nice. Shuffle track, Black Nights, shows a nice blend of lead vocals, horns and well phrased guitar lead. Deeper into the blues with Final Verdict and JL Hooker guitar riffs, Kathy drills down the lead vocals, Benny Turner lays down a heavy bass line, Jones steps on it with some really nice trem bends and hammer ons and Kim Field adds in just the right harp work. Very cool. Floyd Domino leads the way on rocker, All These Questions, with rock n' roll style piano and Jones answers with excellent rock n' roll riffs of his own. Very cool. Wrapping the release is The Bigger Picture with casual, almost Crisie Hynde, aloof style. A taste of Latin rhythm and electric keyboards give this track just the right boost to close a solid release.
