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!

Gramofono Sound Label artist: Will Porter - Tick Tock Tick - New release review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Tick Tock Tick, from Will Porter and it's a cool slice of music. Opening with title track, Tick Tock Tick, a Dr John track features the Dr with his Will Porter with his soulful lead vocal, backed by Thaddeus Richard on keys, Todd Duke on guitars, Brian Brian Quezergue on bass and and Bunchy Johnson on drums. My favorite track on the release is original Why Do We get Blue? which is a stellar showcase for Porter's voice and backing vocals by The Womack Brothers and with a tasty baritone guitar solo Jimmy Haslip. Ike turner's funky, I'm Blue, is really pumped up with super horn work by Mic Gilette and Johnnie Bamont. Solid blues, I Can Do Bad By Myself is another favorite with deep roots, featuring sreat soulful vocal by Porter, warm keys by Richard, powerful horns by Gilette and Bamont and strong guitar soloing by Leo Nocentelli. Very nice. Smooth jazz ballad, Don't Go To Strangers has the strings and the warmth but the baritone guitar solo by Haslip gives the track real traction. Wrapping the release is Everything's Gonna Be Alright, a strong radio candidate with R&B bones and featuring lead vocal by Porter and The Womack Brothers providing essential backing vocals with a potent bass line by Quezergue and tight rhythms by Doug Belote.
