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!

Jim Roberts and the Resonants - Beneath the Blood Moon - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Beneath the Blood Moon, from Jim Roberts and the Resonants and it's cool pop blues. Opening with the title track, Beneath the Blood Moon, Roberts on vocal and slide, joined by Mike Harvey on drums, Tony Jack Grigsby on bass and Mike Finnigan on keys sets the pace for this cool new release. Dog Done Bit My Baby gives Roberts a nice opening to show his slide work with a a cool blues rocker. Rick Hollander joins on bass laying down a driving bass line. Funky, Tupelo Fool, has a real nice groove with gritty vocals and a cool slide refrain. Ballad, May All Your Regrets Be Small, has the standout radio track on the release with solid lyrics, nice lead vocals, a sweet melody and the addition of Nathan Rivera on accordion. Another solid radio track, Southern Hospitality has just the right blend of smooth vocals, slide guitar and cool rhythm. One of my favorite tracks on the release, Dark Down On The Delta, has a laid back rock rhythm and really clean slide soloing.  Wrapping the release is country blues track, The Hell Hound's Due, with finger picked resonator and a stripped down country blues sound. With Felix Flanagan on harp, this is a real nice closer for an smart new release.
