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!

The Bluesland Horn Band - Six - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Six, from The Bluesland Horn and it's a cool, funky blues jam. Opening with lazy shuffle, My Old Truck, Marty Cochrane leads on vocal, backed with a full horn compliment including Miguelito Valdez and Doug Zacharias on trumpet, Barrie Sorenson on tenor sax, Armando Alvarez on bari sax, Tim Keels on tuba and with Casey Ryder on bass, Jan Randle on piano, Ross Hall on drums and Terry Medd on acoustic guitar and dobro. Cool opener. Shuffle In The Attic has a Freddy King feel with Medd laying in some real nice guitar riffs and Alvarez on bari holds the bottom tight. I really like rocker, Rock My Roll with it's swagger. Featuring some real nice guitar work by Medd and a strong sax solo by Jerry Cook, this track has attitude. Alley Shuffle again finds Medd up front with a taste of T Bone Walker but with the punchy horn section of Doug Zacharias, John Reid and Paul Evans and with Guy Plecash on piano and Gavin Sorochan on drums. Wrapping the release is So Long, Goodbye with Jack Lavin on vocal, harp and bass. I really like Lavin's harp tone which adds great texture to the track. A solid shuffle featuring Medd on slide, Miles Jackson on organ and Ross Hall on drums, this is a solid closer.
