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!

Old Chimney artist: Jon Gindick - Love At The All Night Cafe - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Love At The All Night Café, from Jon Gindick and it's easy, breezy and bluesy. Opening with I Was Born To Wail, harmonica player, guitar player and lead vocalist, Jon Gindick sets the pace with train riffs and a up tempo beat. Backed by Ralph Carter on bass, Frack Goldwasser on guitar and Pete Gallagher on drums, the band hits the ground running. Title track, The All Night Café has a cool, Latin sway, clean guitar riffs, excellent percussion, harmonica and vocal making it one of my favorites on the release. Another of my favorites is blues number, Load Me Up Baby with it's rocking intro and it's swinging refrain with really nice guitar soloing. Very cool. Swing track, Happy Wife, Happy Life, Happy Home is another really cool track with some of Gindick's best vocals and overall great track. I Love The Feminine Girl has a clever story sure to make it a favorite with listeners and a solid beat. Wrapping the release is ballad, In The Land Of You, with it's radio style melody and warm harmonies. Carter's piano work leads the track nicely and with the spotlight on Gindick, he's comfortable with lead vocal and harmonica. Nice closer.

Old Chimney artist: Jon Gindick - When We Die, We All Come Back As Music - New Release Review

I just received the most recent release, When We Die, We All Come Back As Music by Jon Gindick. Opening with swinging blues title track, When We Die, We All Come Back As Music with full horn section, warm backing vocals slick guitar riffs and tight harp work. Wishing Well has a cool bass line and crisp piano riffs floating Gindick's vocal and harp work nicely. Bird On A Wire is an easy flowing pop track with mellow lead and backing vocals. Ghost Dance has a hot rockin' rhythm reinforced by Gindick's harp and well phrased vocals. School has a real cool groove in concrete on bass. Gindick uses this rhythm nicely to highlight his harp work making this one of my favorite tracks on the release. I Love You More is a nice, easy blues track with a great feel. With strong vocals and harp by Gindick and nice sax work, this track is another of my favorites on the release. With it's modified Bossa Nova rhythm, Jealous Kind of Guy has a smooth, jazzy feel with nice keyboard backing. Wrapping the release is Easy Come, Easy Go, a somber track with a pretty melody nicely suited to close the release. Gindick has put together a fine release aimed at a specific audience looking for a broader adult vocal style. Nicely done.
