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!

Pro Sho Bidness artist: Lowell Fulson Live! with Jeff Dale & The Blue Wave Band - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Lowell Fulson Live!, from Jeff Dale & The Blue Wave Band and it's really strong. This release comes about for Fulson's 100th birthday and is well worth waiting for. Opening with instrumental, Do You Feel It, the band is really kicking up the funk with Fulson, Lightnin' Dan Sonenfeld and Jeff Dale on guitars, Phil Munsey on drums, Pete Zilchak on alto sax, Steve Primo on tenor sax, Marshall Crayton on tenor sax and Ron Maldonado on bass. On Shuffle, You're Gonna Miss Me, Fulson is upfront on lead vocal and guitar. The recording quality really isn't bad for a live recording from 1983. On, Too Many Drivers, Fulson again has the lead vocal and guitar and Marshall Crayton, PeeWee Crayton's grandson lays in some vicious sax work. Slow blues, Blue Shadows has a really nice feel with solid vocals by Fulson. Funky, Stoop Down Baby has a great sound with solid bass work by Maldonado and sax soloing by Crayton. My favorite track on the release is Blues Pain, featuring Fulson on lead guitar and vocal. With warm sax backing, Fulson's vocals are perfect and his guitar work expressive. Very nice. Wrapping the release is Going To Chicago Blues, a really solid shuffle with Fulson on lead vocal and guitar. With sax backing and a firm rhythm, Crayton belts out a sax solo closing this cool recordings of Fulson and his legacy.
