The new release from The Fabulous Thunderbirds is titled On the Verge on Severn Records, and it’s a blast of the T-Birds trademark blend of Blues, Rock, and R&B – much like the blend of ingredients found in a spicy bowl of Texas chili.
Jazz & Blues
Once again Brian Simpson has made his mark with a top-notch impassioned release, ‘Just What You Need’. It’s full of infectious rhythmic themes and motivated artistic musicianship that make the album an eminently listenable experience.
Robben Ford is a premier electric guitarist who over the course of a 40 year career has combined Blues with Rock and Jazz, with a little R & B, to form a hybrid that transcends the boundaries of these genres. He is also a skilled vocalist and innovative interpreter of songs as he clearly confirms on his new album, ‘Bringing It Back Home’.
The luscious rich and full tonality, phrasing, and unbridled passion that fans have come to expect from Robin Trower comes shining through on his recent Roots and Branches. A Must Have album, one that should be equally embraced by the blues world and the classic rock community.
Alan Greenberg’s ‘Love In Vain: A Vision of Robert Johnson’ is so compelling that you keep reading and you keep hearing Johnson’s music all around you. It’s a brilliant achievement.
Steve Lukather, founding member of TOTO, has just released ‘Transition’, his seventh solo recording; it’s an abounding mixture of satisfying melodic rock, pop, blues, and funk/jazz-tinged music.
