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!

VizzTone Label Group artist: JD Taylor - The Coldwater Sessions - New Release Review


I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, The Coldwater Sessions from JD Taylor and I really like it. Opening with shuffle track, Got Me Where You Want Me, JD Taylor on lead vocal and harmonica teams up with Jon Hay on guitar for a super opener. Joined by Landon Stone on guitar, Matthew Wilson on bass Danny Banks on drums, Rev. Charles Hodges on B3 and Tierini Jackson and Tikyra Khamiir Jackson on backing vocal, strong start. R&B track, Nothing Left To Say is definitely one of my favorites with super vocals, the addition of Marc Franklin on trumpet, Art Edmaiston on sax,  and strong R&B guitar lines. Excellent! I think that Taylor's best vocal showcase is on At First Glance with the warm backing of Franklin and Edmaiston performing an excellent soul track, topped off with melodic blues harmonica. Really nice! Funky, If It Ain't Good, has a really cool driving bass line by Wilson and punchy horns by Franklin. John Holiday really adds nicely with great bluesy guitar lead on this one. Harmonica boogie, Hanging On has great pace and Jon Hay's guitar work adds just the right amount of sting. Wrapping the release is hot swing number, The Coldwater Swing with Zack Lees and Jon Hays winding it out on guitar and Taylor on harmonica over a great rhythm of Hodges, Banks and Wilson. Excellent closer!
