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!

Imitate The Sun - Chris Bergson Band - Review of New Release

This new release by Chris alludes to many different influences like Ry Cooder and Al Green (conscious or not)but nothing sounds like a copy. It's fresh and cool and has a great sound. There are a couple of ballads, a number of traditional blues tunes and a few so R&B influenced that seriously could be right out of the Stax collections with horns and all. Chris has a plucky guitar style with a nice touch on the slide but can get gritty and sound authentic on the traditional blues groove with old style riffs paying respect to those that came before him.

Check it out and see what you think!
