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!

American Showplace Music artist: Sean Chambers - Welcome To My Blues - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Welcome To My Blues, from Sean Chambers and it's meaty. Opening with flamboyant blues rocker, and title track, Welcome To My Blues, guitar player/songwriter/guitarist, Chambers lets it fly with solid vocals and ripping blues rock riffs, joined by John Ginty on keys, Moe Watson on drums and Todd Cook on bass. Great opener. My absolute favorite track on the release, Black Eyed Susie, has a super swagger thanks to Chambers' strong vocals and Watson's heavy drum work. Jimmy Bennett's slide guitar work on this track is super, the track actually reminding me a lot of a terrific track written by Jackie Lynton for Savoy Brown in the early 70's. Luther Allison's Cherry Red Wine is an absolute screamer with some of Chambers' most fiery riffs on the release. If you don't like this, you probably don't like contemporary blues...at all! Excellent! Backbeat shuffle, Cry On Me, has a great feel with Freddie King like poise. Very cool. On One More Night To Ride, Chambers' emphasis is on funky wah wah driven rhythm and free wheeling soloing. Very nice. Again on Red Hot Mama the slide is hot and slashing. With a straight up rock beat, this track has a great feel and never sounds like a Duane Allman clone. Very nice. Another great blues track, All Night Long, has just the perfect level of suspense, enhanced by the organ work of Ginty. Chambers' vocals are great and his guitar phrasing is particularly excellent. Wrapping the release is guitar ballad, Riviera Blue, with a really nicely poised guitar melody. Wel managed piano work by Ginty supports Chambers, intricate guitar soloing but never gets in the way. Masterful.
