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!

Little Village Foundation artist: Sonny Green - Found! One Soul Singer - New Release Review

 


I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Found! One Soul Singer, from Sonny Green and it's a super dose of soul. Opening with  the thumping bas line of Endre Tarczy and a tight simple drum line from Ronnie Smith, on I'm So Tired, Sonny Green's deep and rich vocals are so hot they catch you flat footed. Backed by Kid Andersen on guitar, Jim Pugh on B3, Chris Burns on piano, Mike Rinta on trombone, Jeff Lewis on trumpet and Aaron Lington on sax, this track is explosive! Rick Estrin's I Beg Your Pardon has a strong blues feel with excellent guitar guitar lines, a potent B3 solo and strong vocal work by Green. Very nice! Funky, Cupid Must Be Stupid, penned by Jojo Russo, Terry Hanck and Kid Andersen, really has a great feel. With clever lyrics, a punchy bass line, a great sax solo by Hanck, and a strong trombone solo by Rinta, Burns on piano and Anderson's key guitar work, this is another really strong track. I really like soul shout, Blind Man which really focuses on Green's vocal capabilities and phrasing. With warm horn backing, this is one of my favorites on the release. Back For A Taste Of Your Love has a real Al Green feel. With the high stepping pace, fonky keyboards and guitar and punchy horns, this track is great! Dropping back into a more conventional blues, Trouble features Alabama Mike and with it's lead bass line and glistening piano, this track has a strong groove. The ever present Rinta/Lewis/Lington horn set on top and Kid Andersen working under the vocal on lead guitar, this is yet another strong entry. Wrapping the release is soul ballad, Be Ever Wonderful with the band dropped back and Green really pushed forward on vocal. A strong track and an excellent closer.
