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!

Misty Blues - Pickled & Aged - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Pickled & Aged, from Misty Blues, and it's a blend pf many flavors of blues. Opening with rag time, Split Whiskey, lead vocalist Gina Coleman has strong backing by Jason Webster on banjo, Bill Patriquin on trumpet, Benny Kohn on keys, Rob Tatten on tuba, Aaron Dean on sax and Diego Monque on drums. Great opener. Rolling into funky, Our Travelling Blues, Tatten really spices up the bottom with a great funky beat and excellent sax work by Dean really give Coleman a great foundation. My favorite track on the release is instrumental, It's A Jungle Out There with a terrific Latin beat and an overall jazz framework. With excellent tom tom work by Tatten and percussion by Coleman, Kohn on piano, Patriquin on trumpet, Dean on sax and Webster on guitar, this is a great ride. Another more aggressive track is Take A Long Ride with it's lumbering beat. Coleman digs in on vocals and Dean really screams on sax. Kohn's key solo is clean and well developed and Webster's guitar work driven. Excellent track. Wrapping the release is Stoop Stomp, an up tempo blues with firm support from Dean and a wound down solo by Webster. Even Patriquin gets a nice opening for a bass solo on this one. Cool closer for a real nice release.
