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!

Pretty Good For A Girl Records artist: Mindi Abair and the Boneshakers - All I Got For Christmas Is The Blues - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, All I Got For Christmas Is The Blues, from Mindi Abair and the Boneshakers and it's the "rockingest" Christmas album I've ever heard. Opening with title track, All I Got For Christmas Is the Blues with Ben White's super bass line and Abair's solid vocals. Randy Jacobs of course has his guitar talking, Rodney Lee rides the keys and Third Anderson on drums finishes out the group. On I Can't Wait For Christmas, Abair whips out the sax and blows full tones on sax, over this pop style rock track. Jacobs' fat cigar box slide tones give Merry Christmas Baby a real sting over excellent percussion work by Richardson under the power vocals of Abair. Very nice. Abair gives Mel Tormes' The Christmas Song a bluesy swagger with excellent sax tone melody sans vocals. Excellent! Run Run Rudolph gets a funky, hip hop kind of styling with exceptional guitar punctuation by Jacobs and Abair's own sax work is tops. Wrapping the release is bluegrass flavored Christmas Fool with Jacobs on lead vocal and banjo, backed by Adair on sax, band backing vocals and handclaps by Blanca Garza. Cool bluesy closer for a cool seasonal release.
