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!

Bigfoot Records artist: AG Weinberger - Reborn - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Reborn, by AG Weinberger and it shows a smooth transition from earlier hard core blues to a more relaxed and flexible release. Opening with Willie Dixon's Wang Dang Doodle, AG Weinberger's approach has a cool jazz feel with light piano and double bass by Hars Viktor under his smoky vocals it's a different approach that I haven't heard and I like it. His guitar soloing is much more progressive with a more improvisational and less traditional approach... actually breaking time and going into a running jazz line. Excellent opener. With a bit of New Orleans funky jazz, Cseke Gabor on piano and excellent drums rhythms by Pusctai Csaba, Sweet Little Number is a great platform for Weinberger's R&B vocal approach. Very nice. On shuffle track, The Fool's Lucky Day, Weinberger approaches 50's bebop jazz and both his vocals and guitar are up to it pared with Bob Margolin on slide guitar. This is a nicely crafted track with perfect balance. Excellent! Slippery Slope takes it to the next level with more bebop styling. Weinberger's tight guitar riffs over the excellent groove developed by Gabor, Csaba and Pusctai is exceptional. Gabor shows an excellent feel for jazz piano when his turn comes and this groove really runs. Very vice. Digging back into contemporary blues styling, Weinberger leads off shuffle Cadillac Blues with solid blues riffs. Yes...by this time, you're stomping your foot. Weinberger really lets it all hand out here with flat out stinging electric guitar riffs. Excellent! Title track, Reborn takes the transition a little further with progressive jazz styling. Weinberger works his steel guitar against his eccentric lead electric, and the solid capabilities of the band for a very successful fusion track with ballad overtones. Wrapping the release is I Am The Water, a quiet ballad featuring the sensitive vocals of Weinberger over the brilliant piano work of Gabor. Solid closer. This is a really interesting release and one that I am interested to listen to further on my home system.

VizzTone Label Group artist: Little G Weevil - Something Poppin' - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Something Poppin', from Little G Weevil and it's really different. Opening with high energy rocker, Here I Come Knocking, Little G leads the way on vocal and guitar, joined by Daniel Harper on drums, Marton Pfeff on bass, Laci Borsodi on rhythm guitar, Matyas Premecz on keys, and Danny Del Toro on harp. Very cool. With a distinctive R&B feel, title track, Something Poppin' shows a slinky side with thick vocals by Little G and cool backing vocals by Rebeka Easley Ellis and Sharika Allen Brown on backing vocals. With cool guitar riffs and a solid bass line, this is a cool track. Really cool R&B track, When You Want Me To Deal With This, is one of my favorites on the release featuring super vocals by Little G and a strong bass line by Pfeff. Premecz's key work sparkles and Little G lays in some real nice guitar riffs. You Can't Say Nothing has a real nice instrumental interlude featuring a cool exchange between Little G on guitar and Premecz on keys. Curtis Mayfield's Pusherman gets a nice redo with some trademark riffs and even wah wah. Little G's voice is quite different from Mayfield's so this track has a different feel. Crawling is another pseudo rocker with a heavy dose of R&B drawing thoughts of The Ides of March.  Wrapping the release is raw rocker, Top Model with a simple driven beat and garage style guitar riffs.   Little G lays out his best guitar riffs on this one for a dynamic closer.
