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!

Jeff Fetterman - 9 Miles To Nowhere - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, 9 Miles To Nowhere, by Jeff Fetterman, and it's quite good! Opening with funky blues rocker, Somebody Get Me A Doctor, Fetterman on lead guitar and vocals sets a great stage. With a nice groove and solid vocals, backed by Eric Brewer on guitars, Ralph Reitnger III on bass, John McGuire on drums and Judy Kessler on vocal and percussion, this band is rocking. Nice round tone opens Something Just Ain't Right and the stomping woodblock snap is pure magic. Brand New Day has a tight, thumping bottom and a real good blues rock feel. Fetterman's sense for dynamics is nice with compressed neck pickup picking balanced with open bridge soloing. Goodbye John Brown has a snappy drum riff that really delivers for me and Fetterman's slide works nicely with his rugged vocals. The smoothest track on the release is Broken Hearted, T-Bone Walker progression, just set up for perfectly for lead guitar soloing. A real nice track. With the Sonny Boy Williamson or Booker T groove, Early Grave has a super base for strong vocals and kicking guitar riffs. Wrapping the release is blues ballad, These Arms Of Mine, with is warm melody, solid vocals and fluid and well placed guitar soloing. Very nice closer.
