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!

Rocket 88 Records artist: John Fusco - Borderlands - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Borderlands, from John Fusco and I really like it. Opening with Coyote Man, filmmaker/singer/songwriter/musician, John Fusco starts off on this modern, country western, story telling adventure. Accompanying himself on piano and backed by George Walker Petit with some really expressive guitar and bass and Russ Lawton on drums, and backing trumpet by Conner Young, this is a real cool opener. With blues and tex-mex overtones, I really love Dance of the Seven Veils. Fusco's vocals have just the right amount of grit and with Spanish flavored acoustic guitars and percussion by Petit, this track is really tasty. Matthew Backer features some really nice slide work on Bad Luck Rides Shotgun making it a standout track with strong blues roots and solid vocals by Fusco. Very nice. Backer plays dobro on Cyanide Whiskey, a western flavored blues with a warm B3 bottom by Fusco under his vocal. Painting pictures with his words and just the simple track with intense, soulful guitar lead by Petit hits squarely. Wrapping the release is traditional blues track, Ain't No Grave, with Fusco joined by Ashley Betton on vocal with only the basics under the acoustic guitar of Petit. Solid closer for a really nice release.
