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!

Jim Zeller - Blues From Another Planet - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the newest release, Blues From Another Planet, from Jim Zeller and it's cool. Opening with blues rocker, I Grew Up In Black And White, Jim Zeller is back with his latest and most interesting release. With it's slightly funky, almost David Bowie like feel, the track has a great rhythm and Zeller's harp playing is very cool. Backed by Jimmy James on guitar, Carl Dutremble on guitar, Marc Deschenes on bass and Bernard Deslauriers on drums, solid opener. On shuffle, Life is Good, Zeller is solid on vocal and harmonica with cool guitar riffs by James and Dutremble and Zeller's harp work is hot. Very nice. Slower blues number, Violins Began to Play, is one of my favorites on the release with some of Zeller's best vocals and nice piano work by Larry Cohen. Featuring tasteful harmonica playing by Paqquale Cerascuolo, a real nice track. The man With The Harmonica is a real nice ballad with harmonica lead. A smooth, movie theme song style track which also features an excellent guitar solo, very nice. Wrapping the release is Lydian Bossa Nova, a short instrumental with Zeller on harmonica and only the minimal of percussion by Deslauriers and Olivier St-Pierre on shakers. Solid closer for Zeller's best release yet.
