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!

San Gabriel 7 featuring Sinne Eeg - Under The Stars - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Under The Stars, by San Gabriel 7 featuring Sinne Eeg and it's bright and airy.  Opening with Rocket Blues, Eeg on lead vocal sings in tandem with Jim Lewis on trombone, a quite agile melody lead, breaking to Chris Gordon on piano. With a firm, New Orleans flavor, rhythm by Johathan Pintoff on bass, Dave Holben on tuba, Randy Drake on drums and Scott Breadman on percussion, this track is nicely underway. Alex Budman on clarinet lays in a really nice solo, followed by Kye Palmer on trumpet. Very nice. Getting Along With Love is a cool radio track with a polished, Steely Dan feel. Eeg's vocal approach is strong and her presentation pure.  A smooth sway and dominant sax work by Glen Berger, backed by Palmer on trumpet gives this track a solid A. With it's Latin beat, I'm Feeling Good is a solid ballad with terrific vocals. Chad Edwards on keys works nicely with Budman's sax solo and warm horn backing, giving this track a really strong edge. Berger on oboe adds an interesting perspective on the intro of soulful track, Never Let You Go. With it's strong radio melody, Eeg's lush vocals, and sweet sax work by Budman, this track is pure gold. Hymm is a solid closer featuring warm horn and Eeg's instrumental like vocal blending. This is an unusual track and one of the coolest on the release.
