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!

Ruf Records artist: Big Daddy Wilson - Deep In My Soul - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Deep In My Soul, from Big Daddy Wilson, and it's a solid mix of R&B and blues. Opening with I Know, a super R&B track Big Daddy Wilson (Blount) sounds off with a warm soulful voice, backed by Laura Chavez on guitar, Dave Smith on bass and Steve Potts on drums and the super horn backing of Brad Guin on sax, Ken Waters on trumpet and Trinicia Butler and Kimberlie Helton on backing vocals. Funky, Tripping On You has solid commercial potential with a super melody, a hot bass line, crisp guitar soloing by Chavez and tight backing vocals by Butler and Helton. Another smooth R&B track, Hold On To Our Love, is really nice with warm lead and backing vocal, shimmery lead guitar and cool organ work by Rick Steff. One of my favorite tracks on the release is funky soul track, Deep In My Soul with an excellent beat, a super groove, organ ride, great horn punch by Guin and Waters and edgy guitar work by Chavez. Excellent! Crazy World is a great blues track with sway. Wilson shows some of his best vocal work on this track and Chavez working overtime over the sweet bass lines of Smith really make this track hum. Redhead Stepchild has a smoky, lumbering feel with a deep bass line and solid vocals. Chavez's guitar lines are particularly hot and funky against a deep dark background. Very nice. Wrapping the release is spiritual number, Couldn't Keep it To Myself featuring Wilson, almost acapella backed by Mitch Mann, Brad Guin, and Ken Waters on great vocal harmonies and Will McFarlane on guitar. Excellent closer for a really nice release.
