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!

Big Ear Audio artist: Cassius King and the Downtown Rulers - Last Call For The Blues - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Last Call For The Blues, from Cassius King and the Downtown Rulers, and it's solid contemporary blues. Opening with Do It All Again, Cassius King is strutting with solid vocals and keys, and complimented by Chalo Ortiz, Chris White on bass and J.R. Lozano on drums. With just the right amount of backbeat and vocal blend and tasty riffs by Ortiz, this is a strong opener. If You Love Me Like You Say is a really cool track with a good hook and real radio potential. Ortiz knows how to ride the groove and can really put the sting in the right place. Very nice. Lozano drives the train on Feel Good Music with his funky drum rhythm and Ortiz plays stinging accents under really potent vocals by King. Another winner. Wrapping the release is title track, Last Call For The Blues with it's ballad format. Excellent vocals by King and rick guitar lead by Ortiz make this and excellent closer.
