CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

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!

Jimmy Carter - Blind Faith - New Release Review

 


I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release (September 20, 2021), Blind Faith, from Jimmy Carter (Co-Founding member of The Blind Boys of Alabama) and it takes pieces of a number of genres of music and blends them together nicely. Opening with After The Storm, Carter on lead vocal, is joined by Joey Williams with some nicely finessed gypsy style guitar, Ryan Joseph on violin, Steven Ray Ladson on bass and tidy drum rhythms by Chris Marshak. Solid opener. With a cool R&B feel, Dream On, has a snappy rhythm and super backing vocals. With a firm bass line. forward trombone solo by Freddie Lonzo, and piano backing by Max Leake, this is one of my favorites on the release. Charlie Musselwhite  lays in some nice harmonica work on Find Your Way Home with the addition of Joseph on violin, and a jazzy piano solo by Peter Levin. Wrapping the release is blues shuffle/gospel track, Why Me, with Musselwhite, on harmonica, Ron Pullman on guitar and powerful choral backing by the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh. This is a solid first release by Carter and one with a lot of flavor.

    1. Hi. I wrote back to the promoter after a previous comment indicating that there was some concern regarding the correctness of the comment. The liner notes are on the cover of the media. I asked the promoter if there was a change needing to me made and asking for clarification. I have none. I also don't know who is making this comment that I am responding to or your email address. Please write an email and I can get it straight for you. Info@bmansbluesreport.com thanks
