MICK KOLASSA – “Taylor Made Blues” (Swing Suit MMK 032016)

 

The very personable singer and acoustic guitarist Mick Kolassa – a.k.a. Michissippi Mick – is on the Board Of Directors of The Blues Foundation, based in Memphis, Tennessee. That means he is ideally placed to call on some of the city’s top musicians, and for this, his third album, that’s just what he did when he popped into the River City’s legendary Ardent Studios. Mind you, many of these have already appeared on this set’s predecessors: the up-and-coming Jeff…

SHARI PUORTO – My Obsession (Little Lightning Productions)

 Shari Puorto | My Obsession

 

It is always good to come across an album that, on first listening and all subsequent plays, holds your interest right through from beginning to end, and this certainly qualifies on that score, from the early 70s rock sound of the introduction to the otherwise funky blues of ‘It’s A Damn Shame’ to the closing notes of the oh-so soulful cover of Percy Sledge’s ‘When A Man Loves A Woman’ 44 minutes later. Shari is now based in Los Angeles, and although she…

THE LUCKY LOSERS – In Any Town (Dirty Cat DCR1505)

 

Now this is a rather fine set of blues, roots and Americana from this male/ female duo out of San Francisco. The opener is a true duet between singer Cathy Lemons and Phil Berkowitz, the latter also adding some fine harmonica playing to a number reminiscent of Fontella Bass and Bobby McClure’s 60s soul sides; the closer is another true duet, a lovely rendition of Bobby Charles’ ‘Small Town Talk’ with understated horns. Between these two are items like the…

MARKEY BLUE – The Blues Are Knockin’ (SoulOSound Records)

 

 

This is a very classy, straightforward blues set from this Nashville-based outfit. Guitarist Ric Latina – a veteran of many country and blues groups and sessions – teamed up with singer Jeannette Markey in 2012, initially just to write a few songs. This is their second album and for blues lovers, it really hits the spot. As I write this, I am listening to ‘Be My Train’, a fine, funky Little Milton tribute (incidentally all ten songs here are originals),…
