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!

MarEmil Records artist: Alex Lopez - Slowdown - New release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Slowdown, from Alex Lopez and it's tasty. Opening with funky rocker, Dangerous, Alex Lopez wields a powerful ax joined by Gary Dowell on keys, Steve Pagano on bass and Michael Maxim on drums. I Don't Know is a cool rocker with an unusual Rock n' Roll rhythm. With slashing guitar riffs, and jagged bottom, this track rocks. Exodus is a really nice guitar interlude with Lopez accompanying his electric guitar solo with acoustic guitar, leading directly into ballad Long Long Time with Pink Floyd like sensibility. Guitar driven blues ballad, Stolen, is my favorite on the release with fluid runs, nice vocals and cool keys. Redeem Me starts a string of quiet vocal ballads, this one with a nice piano solo. Wrapping the release is War Without a Face, with military style drumming and a nice melody.
