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!

Quailfied Records artist: Big Shoes - Fresh Tracks - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Fresh Tracks, from Big Shoes and it's cool, laid back, fun. Opening with I Got You Covered, Rick Huckaby on lead vocal really shows the band at it's radio friendly best. With a solid melody, cool vocals and paired with Will McFarlane and Kenne Cramer on guitar, Tom Szell on on bass, Mark T. Jordan on piano, Lynn Williams on drums and Bryan Brock on percussion this is a solid opener. Blending their blues rock feel with just a dash of country rhythm, If The Blues Was Green has a cool, two step feel. Huckaby's voice flexes nicely into this alternate style and country style guitar riffs flow nicely. Bluesy ballad, Roses are Blue has a strong melody and really has terrific radio potential. With it's warm vocal blending by Shaun Murphy and horn work by Dana Robbins on sax and Quentin Ware on trumpet, this track really does sing. Kicking things into high gear on I've Seen The Light, Jordan on piano and Williams on drums drive the train and Jordan and Huckaby's vocal really blend nicely. Drunk On Love is my favorite track on the release with it's Little Feat feel. Excellent melody, with a great swing and instrumentation is hard to beat. Robbins and Ware on horns and super vocals by Huckaby and Jordan really make this track something special. Wrapping the release is Dreaming Again, a warm pop track with a memorable melody. This release really is consistent with strong writing and execution. Very nice.
