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!

Spectra Musique artist: Jordan Officer - Three Rivers - New release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Three Rivers, from Jordan Officer and I'm really looking forward to getting it home on the real system Office has a unique style of blending easy playful tunes with intense bursts of guitar and the opener, Your Body's My Home. An easy paced guitar rhythm and a mellow melody is the stage for crisp and intense burst of guitar energy, backed by Zev Katz on bass and Charley Drayton on drums. Very cool. Big swinger, One Handed Push-Ups is a great jump track featuring officer on lead vocal as well as guitar and violin. This is a snappy track with real fireworks. Super! Easy rocker, Dream of You and Me has nice paired vocals and with solid bass lines, and brushed drums, Officer riffs off some real nice melodic lead solo lines. Slow and quiet is how he approaches Just To Be With You with solid vocals, cool fiddle soloing and crisp guitar riffs...all by officer over bass and drums. Very effective. With a Bo Diddley beat and Roy Buchanan like trem bends, Officer scampers vocally across the New Orleans like drumming of Drayton adding Hawaiian like slide riffs. Very cool. Wrapping the release is Buck Jumping Into New Orleans with a real strong New Orleans rhythmic feel. The thumping bass of Katz, the tom tom backbone of Drayton sets an excellent platform for Officer lay down excellent guitar and violin riffs on a solid closer.
