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!

Dudley Taft - Guitar Kingdom - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Guitar Kingdom, from Dudley Taft and he picks up where he left off with his blues metal feel and solid construction. Opening with Black and Blues, Taft on vocal and guitar has his own style. His vocals are all rock and his guitar riffs, rooted in the blues have a serious springiness along the path paved by Frank Marino. With Kasey Williams on bass and Alex Dungan on drums this is a solid opener. I like the open rock feel of Oil And Water with a driving bottom and fluid lead guitar by Taft and the support of Andy Smith on keys. Very nice. Get Stoned is a sure fire track with a metal riff and solid melody. Blending the intensity of the likes of Ozzy, lush vocal blending and blues undertones really makes this an interesting track. Wrapping the release is A Quitter Never Wins with it's bluesy ballad structure and metal like vocal styling. This is my favorite track on the release with sophisticated blues guitar phrasing and articulation and solid melody. Strong closer.
