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!

Swordfish Records artist: Scott Ellison - Zero-2-Sixty - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Zero-2-Sixty from Scott Ellison and it's a cool mix or rock, R&B and blues. Opening with shuffle, She Needs A Whole Lotta Lovin', Scott Ellison on lead vocal and guitar gets this thing going. Backed by Jon Parris on bass, Robbie Armstrong and David Bernston on harmonica, this is a solid opener. On slow blues, That's How I Love My Woman, Ellison digs deep both vocally and on guitar making this a terrific track. With Parris on bass, Armstrong on drums and Danny Timms on B3 and piano, this is one of my favorites on the release. Another cool shuffle is You Can't Blame A Guy For Tryin' with a cool bass line by Matt Kohl, Matt Teegarden on drums, Hank Charles on piano and organ and great syncopation by Ellison on vocal and lead guitar. Soulful blues, Before The Teardrops Fell is a nice showcase for Ellison on vocals and his lead guitar chops are very nice. Piano soloing by Timms adds another dimension and Ron Morgan on bass and Armstrong on drums keep it tight. On loping swing track, Jenni Kat, Ellison takes his guitar chops for a walk and a real nice show he puts on. With a walking bass line by Kohl and Teegarden on drums, this is a super track. With a bit of funk, Soul Harbor has a definite strut. Parris and Armstrong set up a massive bottom and Ellison just rides the groove. Very cool. Wrapping the release is shuffle, You Can't Hurt Me No Mo' with tight guitar riffs against the back beat. Again the bass lines of Parris lay the groundwork and Ellison's guitar riffs really cook. This is a solid closer for a cool blues album.
