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!

Debra Power - That's How I Roll - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, That's How I Roll, from Debra Power and it's a full boat of piano laden blues. Opening with All Night Playing The Blues, Debra Power knocks down the door with her powerhouse singing and terrific piano playing. Backed by Chris Byrne on bass and Lyle Molzan on drums, this track is rolling. Title track, That's How I Roll is a slick shuffle with Power way up front on vocal and punchy horns on the top with Mike Clark on tenor sax, Pat Bellveau on bari and Ian David Hartley on trumpet and featuring Tim Williams on slide guitar. Bluesy ballad, Don't Ever Leave Me, shows the richness of Power's vocals with my closest comparison being Rod Stewart. Her piano playing is solid and complimentary and Mike F. Little's B3 work  making this one of my favorite tracks on the release. I'm Comin' Around is a cool piano boogie that really shows off Power's piano prowess and Joey Landreth adds real flair with his slide soloing. Very cool. R&B ballad, Let Me Love You Tonight is another solid showcase for Power's voice and Russell Broom's lead guitar work meshes really nicely with the piano and B3 work of Little. Wrapping the release is power blues rocker, Side On Sue with heavy handed drum work by Molzan and harp work by Steve Pineo. Byrne's rumbling bass line and guitar by Landreth makes this an excellent closer.
