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!

Danny Brooks & Lil Miss Debi - Are You Ready? - The Mississippi Sessions - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Are You Ready? - The Mississippi Sessions from Danny Brooks & Lil Miss Debi. Opening with straight up rocker and title track, Are You Ready? Danny Brooks leads the way on vocal and guitar with Debi on vocal, Chalmers Davis on B3, Joel may on drums, Micah May on bass on Geri O'Neal on bass. Jesus Had the Blues has a cool strut with soulful lead guitar and vocal by Brooks, and with James Lawlis on sax, Paul Mitchell on trumpet, and Peter Hysen on tuba. Very nice. With revival gospel styling, Let Me Know is full of energy with Danny and Debi trading vocal and vibrant drum work by May. Debi gets her lead vocal showcase on John Prine's Angel From Montgomery. A cool duet with Brooks on vocal, guitar and harmonica, this is the choice radio track for the release.  My favorite track on the release is One More Mile (To Mississippi), a stripped down hill country style hollar with cajon and harmonica under lead vocal. Very nice. With a full load of soul, When I'm Holding You is another particularly track with a strong melody, warm keys and guitar and Brook's best vocal on the release. Wrapping the release is cool track, The Battle with gritty vocals by Brooks and great tuba work by Peter Hysen and strong trumpet work by Mitchell. This is a dynamite closing for a solid release.
