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!

Electro-Fi Records artist: Blackburn Brothers - SoulFunkn' BLUES - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, SoulFunkn' BLUES, by the Blackburn Brothers and it's got a serious groove. Opening with soulful, Bobby's Blues, Duane Blackburn on lead vocal and keys leads the way with Brooke Blackburn on guitar, Cory Blackburn on drums, and Nathan Blackburn on bass. Rich horn support from Neil Brathwaite on sax and Ted Peters on trombone really adds nicely to the mix on this strong opener. Soul Brother really gets into the funky groove with a excellent bass lead from Roger Williams, Cory's tight drumming and excellent horn work by Brathwaite and Peters. Duane leads with solid vocals and adds juts the right amount of organ and Brooke lays in a real nice guitar solo of his own giving the track just the right edge. Sit still...I dare ya! Old school funk on Sister Rosa, is a page right out Sly's book. Mark Ayee on bass sets the groove with Duane on vocal,  Brooke putting in just the right guitar and a soulful sax solo by Pat Perez. Howard Ayee has his bass humming on Freedom Train with Duane's consistently tight vocals and keys leading the way. Brook on guitar really weaves his guitar work into the fabric of the track with Brathwaite and Peters on horns. Very cool.  Wrapping the release is R&B flavored I Don't Ever Want To Be Alone really showcasing Duane's vocal strength and with Brathwaite and Peters warming the track with nicely blended horns and Duane's own keyboard work over Brook's guitar, Cory on drums and Nathan on bass, this is an excellent closer.
