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!

Louisiana's LeRoux - One of Those Days - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, One of Those Days, from Lousiana's LeRoux and it's a modern blues rocker with a lot of flavor. Opening with title track, One of Those Days, lead singer Jeff McCarty is as solid as they come on this radio rocker with Jim Odem on lead guitar and background vocals, Rod Roddy on piano, Nelson Blanchard on Hammond, Joey Decker on bass and background vocal, Randy Carpenter on drums and Mark Duthu on percussion. With a cool melody and late Allman Brothers guitar runs, this track fits like an old glove. No One's Gonna Love Me (Like The Way You Do), is another strong radio track with tightly woven instrumental backing for McCarty's lead vocal. The R&B style track with a country rock flavor shows a strong influence by the Doobies and and super backing vocals give it a great feel. New Orleans flavored, Lucy Anna has a great botton thanks to Roddy and Carpenter with really strong backing vocals supporting McCarty. Sauce Piquante is a funky cool instrumental with nice instrumental stretches by Roddy, Odem, Leon Medica on bass and with tight drum lines by Carpenter. Wrapping the release is ballad, New Orleans Ladies featuring the vocal prowess of McCarty, featuring Tab Benoit on solo guitar, Tim Courville on drums and background vocals by Keith Landry, Travis Thibodaux, Chapel Hart, Bobby Kimball and Bill Champlain.
