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!

ZOHO Music artist: Swingadelic - Bluesville - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Bluesville, from Swingadelic, a small big band formed by Dave Post on bass. Opening with The Late Late Show, the horns are blazing with John Bauers on vocal and Bryan Davis on solo trumpet. Swinging. A full 18 piece big band is together for Harlem Nocturne featuring Audrey Welber on alto and Boo Reiners on lap steel. Very nice. With it's Latin beat, Mary Ann really ramps up with Bauers on lead vocal, Alex Jeun really winding out the trombone and Joe Taino on laying in solid guitar riffs. This is a great track with strong soloing. Mitch Woods sits in or Parchment Farm with strong vocals and really potent piano work. Joined by Andy Riedel on guitar and Jimmy Coleman on drums, another top track. Latin jazz track, El Blues Esa Mijer is light and springy with Taino on lead guitar and Jeun, again playing some really meaty trombone. On  Riff'n On McGriff'n Kyle Koehler on B3 sets the stage with healthy sax work and strong lead guitar by Andy Riedel. Ellington's The Mooche features stellar work by Ken Robinson on clarinet, Reiners on guitar and Carlos Francis on trumpet. Wrapping the release is an instrumental version of The Late Late Show. This band knows how to turn on the heat and if you dig that jazzier side of the blues, this is a cool trip.
