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!

Socan Music artist: Frederico Luiu - Walkin' The Blues - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Walkin' The Blues, from Frederico Luiu and it's pretty tasty. Opening with blues shuffle, You Don't Love Me, Luiu, who handles lead vocal and guitar shows pure style on guitar with Simone Scanu on bass, Mauro Cau on drums, Alberto Gurrisi on Hammond, and filled out with a horn section of Anthony Brancati on Tenor sax,  Alison Young on Bari and alto sax and Alexis Baro on trumpet. With it's catchy chorus, a solid radio track. Funky Bee is a strong, horn infused, blues track with a strong funky rhythm by Scanu and Bau and red hot riffs by Luiu. On slow blues, What You've Done To Me, Luiu is featured on lead vocal showing real emotion with heavy bari support by Young and nice backing vocals by Roberta Michele Quilico leading to clean, BB style guitar phrasing by Luiu. Very nice. Driving shuffle track, She's Gone with Matt Schofield sitting in with some really healthy guitar riffs adds real spice to an already spicy mix. With Baro, Young and Brancati hitting, this is a super track. My favorite track on the release is Otto with Luiu playing a fast shuffle over driving bass lines and a strong Hammond contribution by Gurrisi. Excellent! Wrapping the release is instrumental, Like A Woman giving Luiu a real opportunity to show his Chickin' Pickin' guitar riffs. Cool closer for a cool release.
