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!

Shakin' Woods - The Blues Proper Sessions Vol. 2 - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, The Blues Proper Sessions Vol. 2, from Shakin' Woods and it's a cool mix of blues and pop. Opening with blues jam, Enemy, with it's slow, electric blues roots. With singer/guitarist Rich Russman leading the way, this is a strong opener with firey riffs and solid backing by Austin Day on keys and Paul Dudley on drums, this is a solid opener. On Robert Johnson penned, I Believe I'll Dust My Broom with it's strong nod to Elmore James, Day takes over lead vocal and lays down some real nice slide guitar. Wrapping the release is Peter Green's Long Grey Mare with a cool British rock rhythm guitar and bass and lead harmonica work by Rob Paparozzi. Cool closer.

Shakin' Woods - The Blues Groove Sessions #1 - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, The Blues Groove Sessions #1 from Shakin' Woods and it's a solid blues rocker. Opening with Like A Superman, singer/guitarist Rich Russman shows the way on this soulful radio rocker. With its strong melody and melodic, Mesa Boogie, guitar work, Latin influenced rhythm by George Belton on bass, Paul Dudley on drums, Austin Day on keys, it's a certain to get some airplay. Bluesy, The Place To Be has a great back beat and sets you deep in one of those grooves. Very nice. Another track with a funky beat is Cayman Review with a fun vocal interplay, funky organ by Day and bongo/tom tom playing by Dudley that really hits the spot. Wrapping the release is Still Alive, a heavy weight blues rocker that really gives Russman the opportunity to show his chops and he's not holding back. The band is hot and heavy on this super closer for a solid release.
