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!

The Peterson Brothers - Self Titled - New Release Review

I just received the newest self titled release from The Peterson Brothers and it's pretty cool. Opening with Albert King's, You're My Woman, a blues rocker with a light funk, Glenn Peterson takes the microphone and shows what he's all about. With selective guitar punctuation he is joined by Alex Peterson on bass, Brady Blade on drums and rich keyboard work from James Pace. On Little Johnny Taylor's If You Love Me Like You Say, that band lays down a bit of Texas style funky blues. Glenn rips a couple of real nice guitar riffs and Pace rides high on the organ. On shuffle track, Hey Baby, the band develops a real nice groove. Pace hits it hot on piano and Glenn cooks it hot for a real nice toe tapper. R&B track, I Wouldn't Treat A Dog (The Way You Treated Me), shows the best of Glenn's voice and I particularly like Blade's drums riffs that hit this track just right. Pace again comes through with a nice organ solo setting up Glenn for a clean extended guitar solo. Alex keeps the groove moving nicely with tight bass lines. Classic blues track, Don't You Lie To Me has been covered by just about everyone but these guys with Alex leading the way with a solid bass line gets a groove of it's own. Glenn has the lead vocals and Pace lays out a real nice keyboard solo. Loping shuffle track, I Gotta Go really benefits from a great walking bass line from Alex and a vocal duet with Glenn. Pace is back on it with warm organ work and Glenn plays some of his nicest guitar work on the release. Tell Me Everything, an easy shuffle track, is up next and Glenn shows a different side of his guitar prowess. With a few Chuck Berry like double stops, this is a real cool track. On Earl King's Come On (Baby Let The Good Times Roll), the gang takes a softer approach from both the rock and blues side but Alex really blows it out on bass with a smokin' solo. Pace follows back with a nice key solo but this track is all Alex's. Very very nice! Feelin' Like Home is a real nice jazzy instrumental with good balance. Alex steps up with another real nice solo on this one. Traditional track, Amazing Grace, is a nicely arranged instrumental featuring Alex on violin and Pace on keys. Nicely done. Rocker, I Gotta Go, is a tight little number with a fluid key solo and a nicely aggressive solo by Glenn as well. Vocal harmonies and a tight bottom make this a cool conclusion to the Peterson Brothers first outing.
