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!

Corte' - Seasoned Soul - New release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Seasoned Soul, from Al Corte'. Opening with Little Milton's That's What Love Will Make You Do, Corte' serves up a full plate of traditional funky soul. On Freddie King's, I'm Tore Down, and sticking pretty close to the original arrangement, Corte' is joined by Jerry Bone on guitar, Lennon Bone on drums and Ron Miller on keys. I particularly like Bone's bass line on Albert King's Oh Pretty Woman. Otis Rush's, All Your Love, gets a light Spanish flavoring showcasing some of Corte's finest vocals. On classic, Unchain My Heart, Corte's vocals are solid with nice vocal backing by Sarah Jo Roark. On Otis Reddings' Any Ole Way, Corte's vocals are smooth as silk breathing real southern fried R&B. James Brown's Cold Sweat gets a total remake with a rolling swing. Jerry Bone plays some of his best riffs with snappy bottom work by Lennon. A cool release that is definitely worth a listen.
