CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

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!

Peach and the Almost Blues Band - A Night In Copenhagen - New Release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, A Night In Copenhagen, by Peach and the Almost Blues Band and it's cool. Opening with a great Bob Dylan track, Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You, the band uses an arrangement very similar to Jeff Becks arrangement which I like quite well. Opening with a warm harp intro by Ken Strange, Peach on vocal and guitar is joined by Michael Engman Ronnow on guitar, Helge Solberg on bass, Niclas Campagnol on drums and Strange on keys. Country rocker, Never Make Your Move Too Soon, has the strut of Bob Seeger with Campagnol and Strange setting the pace. Shuffle track, Little By Little, has a cool roll. Peaches' vocals are spot on and Ronnow's guitar sowk sets the track off nicely. Rocker, Love-itis, has a super beat and tight rhythm. Come Up And See My Sometime has a cool rockin' sound that I associate with J Geils. Peach's vocal phrasing is super and Strange and Peach meld nicely on the solos. Paulie Cerra's blues, Same As I'm Over You, is possibly the best track on the release with it's soulful melody and Peach's vocals, dressed nicely by Strange on piano. Wrapping the release is Frankie Miller's cocky rocker, Ain't Got No Money, with it's tight bottom and the brilliant piano work by Strange.

Peach and the Almost Blues Band Release "A Night In Copenhagen"




  Peach and the Almost Blues Band announce the release of their new album "A Night In Copenhagen" (Magic Music).
  During February of 2016 American blues singer and guitarist Peach Reasoner returned to Copenhagen to play with her band at her favorite club, the cozy Café Bartof. Club owners Joacim “Jokke” Friss Holm and Charlotte Bertelsen had graciously agreed that recording equipment could be brought for a live recording session.

  Peach and The Almost Blues Band invited keyboard player and composer Ken Stange (Joe Cocker, Roger Miller, Jose Feliciano) to come over for the recording. Ken Stange had played with PEACH for many years in her Los Angeles band. Ken plays piano, organ and harp. The result of the live recording is called "A Night in Copenhagen". During that time of year, Denmark is cold and dark... but the love in that room was the reason for the journey.
