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!

Old Chimney artist: Jon Gindick - Love At The All Night Cafe - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Love At The All Night Café, from Jon Gindick and it's easy, breezy and bluesy. Opening with I Was Born To Wail, harmonica player, guitar player and lead vocalist, Jon Gindick sets the pace with train riffs and a up tempo beat. Backed by Ralph Carter on bass, Frack Goldwasser on guitar and Pete Gallagher on drums, the band hits the ground running. Title track, The All Night Café has a cool, Latin sway, clean guitar riffs, excellent percussion, harmonica and vocal making it one of my favorites on the release. Another of my favorites is blues number, Load Me Up Baby with it's rocking intro and it's swinging refrain with really nice guitar soloing. Very cool. Swing track, Happy Wife, Happy Life, Happy Home is another really cool track with some of Gindick's best vocals and overall great track. I Love The Feminine Girl has a clever story sure to make it a favorite with listeners and a solid beat. Wrapping the release is ballad, In The Land Of You, with it's radio style melody and warm harmonies. Carter's piano work leads the track nicely and with the spotlight on Gindick, he's comfortable with lead vocal and harmonica. Nice closer.

Hi Hat Records & Entertainment artist: Hot Roux - Stranger's Blues - New Release Review

I just received the newest release, Stranger's Blues from Hot Roux and it's got real style. Opening with 2 stepper, Broken Again, drummer and lead vocalist, Jerry McWorter sets the pace and Ed Berghoff supplies the country styled guitar riffs, backed by Brent Harding on bass. Title track, Stranger's Blues, has an interesting mix of Latin rhythm and swampy guitar sounds. Franck Goldwasser really dices it out with chipper guitar riffs that really give this track a unique feel. Very nice! Shuffle track, Woman Where You Been, opens with tight blues guitar riffs by Tommy Harkenrider who continues with rock a billy riffs throughout. Jacob Huffman shows really nice phrasing on harp nicely complimenting McWorter's vocals. Seven Lonely Nights is a country blues with some real cool slide work from Goldwasser, over a solid bass riff by Harding and nice vocal harmonies between McWorter and Harding. New Orleans style Big Mama's has a cool rhythm with Steve Nelson on bass. Harkenrider plays cool, clean and doubled guitar riffs, punctuating McWorter's smooth vocals. Swing track Tick Tock has a cool fifties feel with thick sax work by Bill Flores. Harkenrider lays in a nicely articulated guitar solo. Slinky, Anna Lee, has some a real nice 50's Everly style melody and excellent bluesy guitar riffs from Hackenrider. Latin blues flavor drum work from McWorter really hits the groove and his vocals are cool. Goldwasser gives the track a square kick with smokin' hot guitar riffs and a nice bass line from Harding keeps it tight. Laid back blues, Can't Get You Off My Mind, is a solid radio track featuring Pat McClure on guitar and Sam Bolle on bass. Wrapping the release is a reprise... Another Seven Lonely Nights with a rocking beat. Goldwasser steps up with another wild sliding expedition. This is a nice release showing McWorter's finesse as a singer, drummer and bandleader.
