Tim Bastmeyer's All Star Blues Band - New Release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Tim Bastmeyer's All Star Blues Band and it's got a cool flavor. Opening with What The Woman Does To Me, Tim Bastmeyer on guitar and vocal sets the pace for his newest release with an easy country blues pace. Joined by Julian Fauth on piano, Paul Reddick on harmonica, Sean Pinchin on slide guitar, James Thomson on bass and Cam De Latt on drums, a nicely woven tapestry of acoustics. Northern Boogie Blues has an unusual time signature giving it a less expected resolution. With You is a modern style blues built over a Lonnie Chatmon style track. A cool wandering electric guitar lead by Bastmeyer is nicely complimented by the slide work of Pinchin and the lush bass work by Thomson. Love Turns To Pain has the most primitive blues sound with Pinchin on slide and Fauth on piano under Bastmeyer's classic vocal style and Reddick's harp. One of my favorite tracks on the release is Funky Ten, a light funky jazz tune with lead acoustic guitar melody. Fauth lays out a real nice piano lead and Pinchin isn't far behind with nicely executed slide soloing of his own. Very nice. Wrapping the release is Rough Night At The Office, a cool, laid back track with perfect pace and Lou Reed like feel. Airey piano soloing and a smooth bass solo give this track just the right feel for a smooth closer to a cool release.
