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!

Dov Hammer Blue Soul - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Blue Soul from Dov Hammer and it's a harp fueled release full of blues, boogie, rock and country music. Opening with shuffle track, Make It Count, Dov Hammer on lead vocal and harmonica is joined by Gil Katzir and Yair Fine on guitars, Amos Springer on bass, Nir Segal on drums, Assaf Rozov on backing vocals and Sholomo Deshet on percussion. With a New Orleans, Bo Diddley beat, I'm Gone has great rhythm and a solid harp fed melody and Tzafrir Lichinstein on tight, snappy drums. Very cool. Yair Fine's resonator guitar work really digs in on rock solid delta style blues The Fighting Blues under the vocals and harmonica of Hammer. My favorite on the release. Blues rocker, Tear It Down, is a real foot stomper with Deshet adding to the rhythmic undertone on washboard and Dov's reinforcement of the train feel on harmonica. Taking My Time has a funky beat without going bass heavy and interjecting percussion to balance the harp/vocal lead. Wrapping the release is Blue Soul which is a full gumbo of hip hop, soul, swamp, blues, rap and rock with Dov on vocal and harmonica, Naomi Jo Hammer on chorus and Amir Hacohen on all addition instruments.
