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!

Dialtone/VizzTone artist: Bloodest Saxophone - Texas Queens 5 - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Texas Queens 5, from Bloodest Saxophone and it's powerful. Bloodest Saxophone has been playing old school sounds since 1998. Opening with I've Got A Feeling and Diunna Greenleaf on lead vocals these guys show that they mean business. With Koda Shintaro on tenor sax, Coh on trombone, Osikawa Yukimasa on bari sax, Shuji on guitar, The Takeo on upright bass, and Kiminori on drums and percussion this track has real punch. Lead vocalist Crystal Thompson really pounds out the blues on Losing Battle with really nicely presented guitar by Johnny Moeller on guitars over strong brass and sax work. Excellent! Instrumental, Pork Chop Chick is a terrific jump track with super horn solos, driving rhythm and a real nice guitar exchange between Moeller and Shuji. Very nice. Lauren Cervantes is upfront on Latin track, Run Joe. Masterful rhythms, authentic vocals, tight percussion and wild powerful horns give this track real spunk. A really tasty guitar solo on It's Your Voodoo Working leading to a sassy sax solo by Shintaro give Jai Malano all the support she needs to carry the lead on this one. Don't Move Me gets a real swing and Moeller gets the track moving behind Thomas and the punchy brass on this one. The Grapevine really gets the feet tapping with Cervantes leading the way on an extremely horn lively route with a wild bari solo byYukimasa. Excellent! Wrapping the release is soulful, Cockroach Run, with it's grinding sax work and an aggressive guitar solo by Moeller capping off a really fun and bluesy release.
