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!

Scotty Dennis - Back To The Blues - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Back To The Blues, by Scotty Dennis and it's a fat slice of blues, rock, pop and R&B all rolled into one. Opening with hot blues number, I'm Gone, shows solid vocal styling by Scotty Dennis with a swaggering rock beat and hot guitar riffs by Brandon Hudspeth with solid backing by Go-Go Ray on drums, Jerry Keller on bass, Willie Newell on organ and D'Angelo talent on backing vocals. Title track, Back To The Blues, is a classic R&B style ballad with a strong melody and a prominent melodic guitar solo. For Her Love shows a cool fusion between Latin and R&B with some of the best vocals by Dennis and strong lead playing by Hudspeth. Very cool. Soulful blues ballad, It's Crying Time has super call and response between Dennis on lead vocal and Hudspeth on guitar retort. A break out piano solo by Newell leading into a real nice guitar solo by Hudspeth sets this track apart nicely. Dennis' and Talbot vocal lead over the easy guitar work by Hudspeth is particularly cool and the organ work by Newell really warms the track nicely. Hudspeth pulls out the slide on shuffle track, When I First Met The Blues giving it a rowdy feel under the silky smooth vocals of Dennis. Jacque Garoutte on piano adds sparkle and Gharett Schaberg's horn work rounds it out. Wrapping the release is shuffle, Play Some Blues, with strong upfront vocals by Dennis and stinging guitar soloing by Hudspeth.
