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!

LeArt artist: Linda Valori - Days Like This - New Release Review

I just received the newest release, Days Like This, by Linda Valori. This is a 12 track set of strong mature R&B /Soul style music. Blending in Reggae and Ska beats Valori put out a real nice set of contemporary radio tracks demonstrating her solid voice and super tight backing band. Mike Wheeler plays some particularly hot riffs on I Idolize You. On The Way You Love Me ,Valori gets a bit of the New Orleans sound swing going with cool adds by Vincent Bucher on harp and Tim Gant on keys. My favorite track on the release is a very deep reaching version of Jealous Kind. Another cool cover is Move Over, which was one of Janis Joplin's trademark songs. Getting more of a radio horn treatment, it lacks the edge that Joplin brought, but still has a magic of it's own. Mike Wheeler steps up again with stinging guitar work on the really nice I Smell Trouble... the bluesiest track on the release Very nice! This is a very nice showcase of a solid singer who should find a solid audience on US soils.
