11. Kelly's Blues - 3:49

Sonny Black is a British guitarist whose style includes bows to Earl Hooker (Through Heaven’s Eyes), Joe Pass, Grant Green (Grant’s Groove), Fred Roulette, and even the Piedmont pickers (Raggin’ The Strings). There is a very clean, restrained, almost unplugged, late night feel to Heart and Soul and many of the original songs owe as much to jazz (Bluesology) as to blues (Checkin’ In). The Dukes provide wonderfully understated support with Bob Haddrell’s piano and B-3 leading the rhythm section, George Pearson on bass and Dino Cocchia on drums. Some horns occasionally sit in, but this is essentially a guitar-led quartet moving easily and comfortably through a wide range of blues, jazz and jazz/blues originals.

35 year veteran blues and rock bassist/vocalist/songwriter. My first love in music is the pro studio, where musical vision becomes reality (hopefully). Although I have performed hundreds of cover tunes and have sat in with many bands, I prefer creating original compositions. I hope to put out to the world as many CD's, God willing, as I enter my twilight years. I hope to have the pleasure of working with some of the best musicians in the USA.

It has been two years since local garage blues band Johnny No released their debut “The Riviera Sessions, Vol. 1.” Time has brought about many changes to the group, including the addition of Caleb MacCartee on keyboard and Tarleton “T” McNab on bass. While the line-up may have changed, their unorthodox take on blues has not. They will showcase their latest batch of “Port City Ne’er-Do-Well Blues” with their upcoming sophomore effort “Modern Hymns for the Gentleman Loafer.” The industry-wide release for this album may be set for Feb. 25, but their local fans will have an opportunity to experience this album a month early at the album release party.
For their debut, the band travelled to Como, Miss., to record live in studio with Grammy winner Jimbo Mathus in his vintage Delta Recording Services studio. Johnny No kept things local for “Modern Hymns for the Gentleman Loafer.” For the entirety of 2013, the band laid down numerous tracks in their personal studio (Riviera Recording Studios). They also recruited Mobile’s PORTAL Studio to create the album’s memorable artwork. The end-result is a raucous collection of tracks that infuse blues-rock attitude with tent revival charisma.

The latest release from Christian Collin and Molasses, Molasses Disaster, comes with a warning. Listening to the CD at extremely high volumes can result in SBC (Spontaneous Biscuit Combustion). Use only as directed. Let me be the first to direct you to immediately download this smoldering CD to your personal listening device, strap on your headphones and fasten your seatbelt for a ride you won't forget!
Detroit born and bred, Christian Collin, the lead singer and guitarist, who has written eight of the eleven tunes on the CD, shakes us up like a martini mixer and when he pours us back down to earth, we'll never quite be the same. The Chicago based band whose motto is "Chicago Blues meets Detroit Rock n' Roll," have a recipe for success by offering up a simmering pot of tunes whose aroma wakes us from our musical sleep. Molasses Disaster breathes new life into the rock infused blues world with their seductive blending of drums, bass, harmonica and last but not least, Collin's tenacious voice and guitar.
Buy this CD, you won't be disappointed! -Diane Baskin

Jerry McCain is for harmonica just what he's for guitar Link Wray and for piano Esquerita! A wildman. If you'll ever have a chance to meet an alien and this green lamp headed creature ask you the one million dollars question, "What's Rock & Roll you back-warded scum?" you should say, "Jerry McCain, Link Wray and Esquerita"! That's right. OK you should add next Bo, Chuck & Little Richard but we 're flapping our mouths now. Anyway, if you ever wondered by whom barfed the wildest sides and then putted on vinyl plastic, that's the unholy trinity!
Jerry "Boogie" McCain is a key figure for this devil's music. He speed-ed up the blues in a way that make them instantly and without knowing it, punk! On  the well known label of Excello created mayhem. The same thing happened and a little earlier for the Trumpet. And what I'm offering here it's a whirlwind bash. Raw as hell and bad to the bone. Don't know if the young Rolling Stones or Pretty Things have known then, Jerry. I'm pretty sure though that even if they knew him, they wouldn't want to touch their hands on. Cause he's DIRTY!
I used the word "punk" somewhere. That happened not only for the attitude of his music. McCain purchased and cut by himself with a cheap record machine (remember, we're talking about the 50s, OK?) his earlier tracks like the one that sent to Trumpet Records, Little Walter's "Crazy 'Bout You Baby". He took Uncle John's side on "Run, Uncle John, Run!" as an answer to Little Richard's "Long Tall Sally" ("Gonna tell aunt Mary, about uncle John..."), recorded a session with the Shindings (better known now as Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs!) and to this day along with Kid Thomas, are the coolest cult figures of Rhythm & Blues and the punks of the idiom. D'ya really need more?

Jerry "Boogie" McCain - vocals, harmonica;
Rick Hinkle - guitar, acoustic guitar, electric guitar;
Wayne Goins - guitar;
Steve McRay - piano, synthesizer;
Buzz Amato - piano;
Bryan Cole - drums.

The actual feeling you are listening to a Bluesman who absorbed nickname "Boogie" comes with an all-acoustic title song although first two swampy cuts deserve an equal attention. Further "Tumblin' In The Sea" is an instrumental with harp and keyboards dominating, "Long Arm Of The Law" is why we love Jerry McCain, then is "(She Might Sell My) Teddy Bear" and it goes like it should go: Blues, only Blues and nothin' but the Blues with Jerry McCain speaking through his harp on acoustic again "Lucy Pearl". "I Ain't Got Time" is a pearl both in terms of music/performance and lyrics. Slow blues "Just A Little Bit" with super class harp solo, precedes closing track "I Want to Be Your Santa Claus" with excellent harp work again. Superb Album!
This is maestro Jerry "Boogie" McCain and his harp.
All eleven songs are written by Jerry McCain.

The Alabama harpist's contemporary releases for Ichiban are certainly competent, but that insane energy level that marked his Excello output of the '50s is ancient history -- and so too, for the most part, is the gleeful irreverence that made his early sides such a delight.
