CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

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!

Blues Fidelity Recordings artist: Paul Oscher - Cool Cat - New release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Cool Cat, from Paul Oscher and it's tasty. Opening with New Orleans flavored Money Makin Woman, Paul Oscher on lead vocal and piano really sets the pace with Russell Lee on drums, Mick Shermer on guitar, Eric Burnhardt on bari sax, and Tom Robinson on tenor sax. Nice opener. Excellent blues track, Blues and Trouble is one of my favorites on the release with solid vocals, rolling piano and ripping guitar soloing by Schermer.  Muddy Waters' Rollin' and Tumblin' maintains Waters' original tempo and spirit with Oscher on slide and lead vocal backed by Sarah Brown on bass, Mike Keller on guitar, Russell Lee on drums and Sunny Lowdown and Jeremy Dowden on backing vocal. Down and dirty delta style blues, Ain't That A Man, dedicated to James Cotton has great presence. Featuring Russell Lee on vocal, Oscher on guitar, and Mike Keller on bass this is another of my favorites on the release. Cool instrumental Bebop track, On The Edge, has great spirit with Oscher on piano, Ernie Durawa on drums, Tomas Ramirez on tenor sax and Chris Alcaraz on bass. Very nice. Closing with another New Orleans flavored jazz track, Cool Cat, has a full lineup of Oscher on piano, Brown on bass, Kid Andersen on bass, Mike Keller on guitar, June Core on drums, Russell Lee on drums solo, Tom Robinson on Tenor sax and Lisa Leuschner on vocal. This is an easy flowing jazz track with cool soloing making it a solid closer.
