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!

Gulf Coast Records artist: Kevin Burt & Big Medicine - Thank You, Brother Bill: A Tribute to Bill Withers _ New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Thank You, Brother Bill: A Tribute to Bill Withers and it's great! Opening with Who Is He (And What Is He To You)?, Kevin Burt on guitar, harmonica and lead vocal sets up a funky groove. With Scot Sutherland laying down a deep bass groove, Kevin Valdez with a perfect funky rhythm track on guitar and Eric Douglas really punching on drums, this track is strong. I really love Douglas' snappy work on Kissing My Love and Sutherland really sets the bottom on fire with his bass work. Burt really demonstrates what a great vocalist can do and his harmonica playing is top notch as well. Excellent! I'm Her Daddy is another vocal showcase for Burt but it's the slick guitar work on this track that caught my attention. Sure, he covers Ain't No Sunshine and Lean On Me and both tracks are great... but you already know that. Grandma's Hands is definitely one of Withers' masterpieces and Burt really does it nicely. His soulful vocals make the track a definite must have redo and his guitar interpretation on his solo is really nicely done. My favorite on the release. Wrapping the release is up beat title track, Thank You Brother Bill with it's laid back funky approach. Burt rides the groove with a strong melody, answered by guitar lead and solid rhythm guitar by Valdez. Burt's lead guitar and harmonica are both tasty making hits a real nice closer.
