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!

The “Mississippi meets Chicago” blues partnership of Dave Riley and Bob Corritore  is now in its 8th year. This is their 3rd CD together, and they have toured extensively in the USA, Europe and South America.  Their stage show is a real down-home blues throw-down!

Dave Riley grew up in Hattiesburg, Mississippi before moving to the West Side of Chicago. He worked down South in later years, and was a close associate of Frank Frost, Sam Carr and John Weston.  

Bob Corritore is a Chicago born and bred harmonica player.  He won the 2012 Living Blues Award for Best Harmonica Player. Bob’s Harmonica Blues CD won a 2011 Blues Music Award, he is a recipient of  the Blues Foundation’s Keeping The Blues Alive Award and performed on a Grammy-nominated album.

HUSH YOUR FUSS! features original songs, rootsy old-school storytelling blues that puts you in rural Mississippi by way of Chicago, all in the well- honed style of Dave Riley and Bob Corritore.

VizzTone is proud to be releasing HUSH YOUR FUSS! in partnership with the Southwest Musical Arts Foundation.
“I first heard Dave Riley and Bob Corritore perform together at the King Biscuit Festival in 2009. Dave captivated the audience with his original songs, fine Mississippi-flavored singing and guitar, and friendly stage presence. And Bob’s masterful full-toned Chicago harp and strong ensemble playing charged each song with deep blues.  Together they have crafted a sound completely unique to these two experienced blues players. This, their 3rd CD, upholds and advances their tour-tested formula. Come and get it from Dave and Bob. It’s not a history lesson or the same old stories. It is modern day down-home juke joint blues performed by two creative masters”  ­­

THANKS FOR LISTENING, WE HOPE YOU LOVE THIS RECORD AS MUCH AS WE DO!

SWMAF Records artists: Dave Riley and Bob Corritore - Hush Your Fuss! - New Release Review

I just received the newest release (September 17, 2013), Hush Your Fuss!, from Dave Riley and Bob Corritore and is got a great groove! Opening with title track Hush Your Fuss!, a track right from the delta, Riley's gravely voice and Corritore's harp punctuation keep this acoustic brother to Nobody's Fault But Mine on track. Baby Please Come Home has a strong Chicago feel with a more electric sound and Brian Fahey on drums. A smooth Chicago swing gives Corritore a nice opening to play solo. On No Cussin', the men take a Morganfield road and Corritore again plays some real nice harp work in support of Riley's great vocals. Dave "Yahni" Riley Jr. pushes the band along on bass on this very traditional sounding track. Snuff Drippin' Woman has a nice slow pace giving Corritore the opportunity to dig in deep on a gripping harp solo. Riley has authentic blues vocal feel and delivery with clean complimentary guitar riffs. On R&B style track Mississippi Po Boy, Riley shows some of his best vocals on the release. This is a track that should easily garner airplay. Also stepping up a bit on guitar, Riley articulates cleanly. Home In Chicago has a traditional 12 bar feel and keeps it simple with crisp harp riffs from Corritore. Again stepping up on guitar, Riley shows that he knows his way around the fretboard. Hard Headed Woman has the traditional "Train" rhythm lead by Fahey on drums and nicely complimented by Corritore. Happy As A Man Can Be is a cool boogie track with boppin rhythm guitar from Riley and solid harping from Corritore behind Riley's vocals. Both Corritore and Riley play some of their best riffs on the release and Corritore gets into a smokin' harp solo with great tone on this track. Go Ahead And Blame Me takes a slower pace and you can actually smell the smoke and alcohol from the club. Really nice track. My Baby's Gone is back to mostly acoustic sound with Riley accompanying himself on guitar and soloing by Corritore. A real nice Chicago sound. Oil Spill Blues is one of my favorite tracks on the release with strong blues building blocks on rhythm guitar and a balance of vocal and harp for music track. Again Corritore steps up and takes a great solo on harp. Laughing Blues is an unusual track featuring subdued melody and primitive singing. An interesting cool down number for a pretty cool release.
