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!

Brandon Isaak - Modern Primitive - New Release review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Modern Primitive, from Brandon Isaak and it's an interesting mix of blues, rock, folk and jazz music. Opening with Lost Love and Loose Women, a bluesy shuffle, features Isakk on lead vocal and guitar and lap steel and Keith Picot on bass. Jazzy, Valentine Blues is a fleet fingered rag with solid vocals and trademark guitar soloing by Isaak. Very nice. With a bit of swampy blues, I Wish I Did What I Said is another really cool tracks with Isaak on resonator, harmonica and lead vocal. This track has it's own feel but traces to early southern country blues. Very nice. My choice for radio track of the release is swing track, Something New, with a solid melody, strong rhythm and really nice lap steel work by Isaak.  My favorite track on the release is Six Little Letters with it's driving piano rhythm and vocal/guitar call and response. I really like Isaak's guitar soloing on this track with excellent phrasing and feel. Another track with hot guitar lead is Back To New Orleans and it's uptempo swing beat. A nice harmonica solo and strong vocals make this another of the most memorable tracks on the release. Wrapping the release is seasonal, I Wanna Swing For Christmas. Isaak really knows how to swing and his vocals just float on the track. Solid closer for a real nice release.
