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!

Out Of The Past Music artists: Steve Howell & Jason Weinheimer - History Rhymes - New Release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, History Rhymes, from Steve Howell & Jason Weinheimer and it a cool acoustic blues feast. Opening with There'll Be Some Changes Made. an early jazz (blues) style with excellent finger picking by Howell who also sings, with Wenheimer on bass. Very cool. On Blind Lemon Jefferson's Shuckin' Sugar, Howell lays down a basic boogie guitar line with Weinheimer and sets it afloat. Jack Of Diamonds, a traditional folk tune has a really great feel and with the addition of David Dodson on mandolin is a terrific song a features some of Howell's best vocals on the release.  Another terrific track and a known fiddle tune, Frosty Morn, has terrific instrumental traction with Howell, Weinheimenr, and Dodson. Excellent. The richness of Don Sumner's archtop shines through on I Got A Right To Sing The Blues, as he plays a nice guitar duet with Howell, backed by Weinheimer on bass. Howell's vocals are solid and the track very smooth. Wrapping the release is Pine Bluff, Arkansas, a cool old Bukka White track with an old style blues feel and subtle mandolin fill by Dodson. This is a real nice contemporary cover of some classic old tunes. Very nice.
