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!

Big Song Music artist: Lisa Biales - At Christmas - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, At Christmas, from Lisa Biales, and it's a solid mix of blues, pop and holiday sounds. Opening with title track, At Christmas, Lisa Biales leads the way on vocal with Tony Braunagel on drums, Jeff Paris on keys, Johnny Lee Schell on guitar, David J. Carpenter on bass, Jerry Vivino on sax, Maxayn Lewis on backing vocal, Mark Pender on trumpet and hot trombone work by Garrett Smith creating a cool second line feel. Shuffle, That's What I Like About Christmas, opens with a slick guitar intro by Schell. A snappy bottom by Braunagel, great vocals by Biales, swinging keys by Paris and a solid sax solo by Joe Sublett makes this a likely radio track. Mary's Little Baby Boy is my favorite track on the release with a distinct rock feel. Biales holds the reins tight and Braunagel's drum snap paired with Carpenter's bass line gives the track a Stones sound with high tension Hammond work by Paris and really cool slide guitar work by Schell. Excellent! Wrapping the release is bouncy, Christmas Cheer, with it's pop rocky feel. A definite radio track with Paris punching up the mix on keys and Schell accenting the mix with choice guitar work. Warm backing vocals by Lewis and a snappy drum rhythm by Braunagel makes this a solid closer.
