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!

Roots Art Records artist: Andres Roots - Breakfast In September - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Breakfast In September, from Andres Roots and it's quite good. Opening with The Sheik of Hawaii Pt. 1, Andres Roots is on a steel resonator and making terrific slide sounds. With a riff that has just a touch of middle eastern flavor, Roots attacks the strings. His work is sure and true. Excellent opener. Tango Walk features Roots, joined by his one time teacher, Halvo Livamagi blending a tango guitar rhythm and slide soloing by Roots. This is a nicely balanced track with well blended techniques. 4 AM Hot Dog is a cool rag time track clearly showing Roots finger mastery and authentic style. Very nice. Another excellent blues track, Leif's Guitar Blues is a super display of finger picking and slide technique. Thing Stephan Grossman. Waltzin' Blue on electric guitar with slide is really lush with super bass notes injected much like Kottke does. Very nice. With really fat slide tone, 7th Heaven is really cool. A fast boogie, this track defines slide. Excellent. Stumbleweed is a nice, traditional Delta style blues with varying tempos and European melodic overtones. Very nice. Wrapping the release is The Sheik of Hawaii Pt. 2. with a much more complex, electric slide overtone. I really like this release and can't wait to listen to it on my home stereo.
