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!

Michael Bloom and the Blues Prophecy - Whisper in the Wind - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Whisper in the Wind, by Michael Bloom and the Blues Prophecy and it's a cool relaxed blues rocker. Opening with Time On My Hands, Bloom is up front on lead vocal and guitar with Minuro Maruyama, also on guitars, Michael Damani on keys, an excellent rolling bass line by Jeffrey Labon, and Andrew Thomas and Faustino Cortez on drums. Just Can't Win is a real nice contemporary blues track with a solid melody and again, a cool bass line by Labon. Bloom and Michael Damani lay out some really cool guitar lines on this one as it floats along nicely. Bloom's take on Brownsville has classic styling with Bloom on slide and lead vocal and cool piano rolls by Damani. One of my release favorites is slower blues, Old Man Blues with Bloom stretching his chops on electric lead guitar and with Brant Leeper on B3. Clocking in at nearly 7 minutes...very nice. No Luck At All is an interesting blues track with a different kind of approach to an Albert King style blues. With it's funky bottom and stinging guitar lead by Bloom and Maruyama and Damani on keys, this is another of my favorites on the release. With a bit of that southern swagger, Lisa is another guitar showcase with Bloom and Tim Arnolld on guitars and Leeper on Wurlitzer. Wrapping the release is Robert Johnson's Dust My Broom with it's laid back pace. Mary lane is featured on lead vocal with Bloom on slide guitar, Damani on keys and Cortez on drums. Cool closer for a cool release.
