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!

Misty Blues - None More Blue - New Release Review

 


I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, None More Blue, from Misty Blue and it's a cool, dark blues interpretation. Opening with My One and Only, lead singer, Gina Coleman sets the pace with a tight band. With Seth Fleischmann on guitar, Bill Patriquin on bass, Benny Kohn on keys, Rob Tatten on drums and Aaron Dean on sax, this is a solid opener. With strong lead guitar over a rumbling bass and drum rhythm, and wailing sax by Dean, this track is super. With a funky, jazzy, rhythm, These Two Veils is a mover with a great bass line and trumpet accents by Patriquin and sassy lead guitar by Fleischmann. Dean is always there with soulful sax lines and Kohn's glistening keyboard work adds nicely to Coleman's vocal lead. Very nice. One of my favorite tracks on the release is Change My Luck, which puts me in mind of Muddy Waters. Gritty vocals by Coleman and nicely executed harmonica riffs by Ed Moran over great tension provided by Kohn's organ gives this track real traction. Blues rocker, Ready To Play, has a firm drum stick by Diego Mongue and again with Moran contributing nicely on harp, sets a solid stage for Coleman's vocal lead. Kohn drives the organ up and Patriquin's trumpet and Dean's sax work nicely ice the track. Step Right Up has a different type of hook that would seem to work well for radio with it's bouncy beat and fluid melody line, cool bass lines by Mongue, and interwoven sax by Dean and guitar soloing by Fleischmann. Down home country blues styling on Days Gone By features Coleman on cigar box guitar and vocal, with only minimal backing on guitar and percussion. Light and fun. Wrapping the release is Nothing to Lose with Dan Eskop on bass, Mongue on drums, Richard Boulger on trumpet Wendy Lipp on vocal, Rob Tatten, Moran, Kohn and Patriquin on backing vocal and  fat horn work by Tatten on trombone, Patriquin on trumpet and Dean on sax. Very cool closer for a solid release.
