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!

Blues Mountain Records artist: Big Harp George - Cut My Spirit Loose - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Cut My Spirit Loose, by Big Harp George, and it's cooking! Opening with boogie track, It's Tuesday, George is firing on all cylinders. With Kid Andersen laying down signature guitar riffs and backed by Doug Rowan on bari sax, Michael Peloquin on sax and Mike Rinta on trombone the house is rocking. George on harmonica and lead vocals and joined by Chris Burns on keys, June Core on drums, Joe Kyle Jr. on bass and with Lisa Leuschner Andersen, James Dwayne and Walter Morgan on backing vocals, this is a great opener. With a real nice New Orleans beat, Bustin' Out is a strong instrumental led by George on harmonica, Jeff Lewis on trumpet Peloquin on sax, Rowan on bari and Rinta on tuba. This is punchy. Tight drum work by Core and bass by Kyle, and a sassy sax solo by Peloquin and a great trombone solo by Rinta makes this my favorite on the release. Jump Abu Lula! is another great track with George really harping out. D'Mar sets a great drum rhythm and Dwayne and Morgan's backing vocals really add spice. Slow blues, Behind The Eight Ball is another strong track with excellent lead vocals by George. Rhythmic piano by Burns and excellent guitar work by Andersen set the stage for a real healthy harmonica solo by George. Very nice. Take A Knee is another favorite with delta style guitar work by Andersen and rich backing vocals by Dwayne and Morgan behind the featured work of George. Very cool. Wrapping the release is Captain Jack, a warm ballad with George on lead vocal with  mostly piano and bass backing. This is really a strong release and one I recommend for blues lovers.
