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!

Dancing Rooster Records artist: Bruce Katz Band - Connections - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Connections, from Bruce Katz Band and it's a cool rock blues release. The title hints at the connection that Katz has with the Allman Brothers Band through his long term membership of Gregg Allman's Band, and bass player Shaun Oakley who is grandson of Berry Oakley, founding ABB member Berry Oakley. Opening with Right Here Right Now, a bluesy rocker, Bruce Katz on electric piano lays down a strong groove, backed by Aaron Lieberman on guitar, Liviu Pop on drums and Shaun Oakley on bass. Where's My Wallet? is a cool, funky rocker featuring Katz on B3 with a strong drum rhythm by Pop and fluid guitar soloing by Lieberman. Heavy footed, Down Below, features Lieberman on vocal and guitar with Katz holding down organ bass and Hammond and a funky drums line by Pop. Lieberman gets real tight on guitar with some stinging riffs, making this one of my favorite tracks on the release.  With a jazzy approach, All About That is a cool track with Lieberman leading the way on guitar working nicely with Katz on Hammond making this another top track on the release. Wrapping the release is slow blues, What I Feel, with warm Hammond  by Katz. You can definitely feel the influence of GA on Katz and joined by Lieberman on guitar playing Allman influenced riffs, this is an excellent closer.
