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!

Blacks, Whites & the Blues - Mark T. Small - New release review

I just received my advance copy of Mark T. Small's new release. It is a mix of uptempo, Piedmont style, rag and delta blues and nicely executed. Mark has a solid voice and the recording is well done.If you like the acoustic finger picking blues I'll bet you'll like this one.

, AZ – Solo Delta and Chicago-style blues guitarist Mark T. Small announces a September 20 release date for his new CD, Blacks, Whites & the Blues, on Lead Foot Music. The new album features 14 songs bursting with his trademark incendiary blues guitar work on a variety of vintage instruments that emphasize his improvisational playing within the framework of classic Delta and Chicago-style blues idioms.

“I started developing the solo show because I love the freedom associated with playing alone,” he states “Musically, you can frame a song and take it wherever it leads you during the performance. I hear so much of that when I listen to guys like John Lee Hooker and Lightnin’ Hopkins. They break the rules and the song is all about the moment. The more I play solo, the more I prefer it over a band situation – It is absolute musical freedom. Occasionally, I still do strap on an electric guitar and play in a band setting. I love doing that and could not live without it, but my first passion is playing solo.”

Mark T. Small will support the release of Blacks, Whites & the Blues with a series of showcase performances at clubs in Scottsdale and the southwest as well as his former stomping ground in the New England area. Blacks, Whites & the Blues will be available for CD sale at both CD Baby and Mark’s website,; and for digital download sales at all the major sites such as iTunes,, 7 Digital, EMusic, IHeart Radio, Liquid Digital, Deezer, Napster and Rhapsody.
