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!

Peter V Blues Train - Shaken But Not Deterred - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Shaken But Not Deterred, from Peter V Blues Train and it has great spirit. Opening with shuffle,  I Don't Want To Leave Memphis, led by Peter V. on vocal and guitar is backed by Alex D'Agnese on drums, Sean Graverson on bass, Aron Gornish on keys, with Jeff Levine on B3 and Danny Walsh wailin' on sax. By The River has a slinky rhythm with Coo Moe Jhee on bass, Levine on B3 and cool funky guitar rhythm and solo riffs by Bob DelRosso. T Bone Shuffle opens with rich sax work by Walsh who shares the solo spotlight with Peter and Levine. I particularly like the funky attitude of Alibi with tight drums, cool vocals and stinging guitar lead. Getting Closer Now has a funky Latin fused rhythm and joining Peter on vocal is Vaness Vause with Gary Neuwirth on harp. Very cool. Continuing with the contagious, funky rhythm on Been So Long, Peter lays out some of his best vocals on the release with Paul Livinsky on drums, Bill Cherensky on bass and DelRosso laying down some really funky guitar riffs. Very nice. If the title track, Shaken But Not Deterred doesn't get you head bobbing and maybe even you squirming in your seat, you are probably not breathing. The B3 reinforcement by Levine and Peter's guitar lead is tight! Wrapping the release is a live cover of Big Maceo's Worried Life Blues with acoustic guitar soulful vocal and solid sax work, making is a solid closer for a cool release.
