CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

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!

Terry Robb - Confessin' My Dues - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Confessin' My Dues, by Terry Robb, and I really like it. Opening with Butch Holler Stomp, a smoking hot finger pickers delight, Robb, regarded as one of the top finger picking blues guitarists shows why! Excellent opener! On, It Might Get Sweaty, Robb is joined by Dave Captein on bass and Gary Hobbs on drums for a funkier blues number with a definite jazzy edge. Robb literally smokes the fretboard with Captein and Hobbs holding the bottom solid. Very nice. In the pure blues vein, Darkest Road I'm Told, has strong blues runs and solid vocals by Robb. My favorite track on the release, Three Times The Blues explores the T Bone Walker style of blues with deep feeling, excellent runs and solid phrasing, backed by Captein on bass and Hobbs on drums. Very nice.  Title track, Confessin' My Dues has a great country blues feel with a springy rhythm and confident phrases. In Rev Gary Davis style, Death Of Blind Arthur, is a cool blues floating between traditional Davis country style and rag style. Very nice. Wrapping the release is Blood Red Moon with it's blend of modern and traditional styling. Robb is an excellent craftsman and musician and this is an excellent release showcasing his craft.
