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!

Lucky Street Music artist: Marty Manous - Transcendence - New Release Review

I just received the newest release, Transcendence, from Marty Manous and it shows real promise. Opening with Bird In A Cage, a fluid blues rocker with shades of Blue Oyster Cult, it's a great opener. Cleanly executed guitar riffs by Manous, joined by Sean O'Rourke on drums, Evan Breedlove on bass and Joe Morgan on keys beef up the track. Driving blues rocker, For A Few Dollars More, has a metal feel but never crossing over from a blues bass. Fluid guitar riffs and a driving bass line are the trick here. Cool! Silence Of My Day is a quiet track with modern dynamics and a slick hook. Morgan on B3 fuels Manous' guitar fire leading to some scorching riffs. Pop rocker, Living, has strong bones and is a sure fire radio track. Lucky Street is an interesting instrumental composition with bends and volume swells nicely articulating a nice melody. Very nice! Straight up blues guitar ballad, Not Worth Another Song, is definitely the crowd pleaser on the release with fat, hot guitar lead and nice slow pacing. Again, fast riffs, volume swells, bluesy vocals and a heavy bottom make this my favorite track on the release. Excellent! Wrapping the release is Fate, another solid radio oriented track. A memorable melody and cleanly executed instrumentals are the secret here. Nicely done!
