CHICKENBONE SLIM – The Big Beat (Lo-Fi Mo

Chickenbone Slim: The Big Beat

Chickenbone Slim is the stage name of Larry Tevez, a veteran of various blues and rockabilly bands out of San Diego, California. Those influences are pretty obvious on this set. The first two tracks have a gritty, rootsy blues feel, then ‘Hemi Dodge’ is rocking country and ‘Vodka And Vicodin’ - I looked up the latter, mixing it in this way is recommended – is folky with lyrics that tend to focus on the less salubrious side of life, a trend that continues throughout…

BENNY TURNER – My Brother’s Blues (Nola Blue NBL004)



It is no exaggeration to state that Freddie King was one of the greatest blues performers ever, but do we really need a tribute album? Well, Benny Turner is Freddie’s younger brother and played bass with the big man in the 50s, 60s and 70s (though not continuously). He was also a recording artist in his own right, beginning in the early 60s. So this is no simple cash-in, though you would gather that…

WEBSTER AVE - "Daylight" (Independent)

Named after one the Bronx's longest thoroughfares, and so reflecting this band's geographical roots, Webster Ave comprises David Webster on guitars and vocals, bassist Tony Mercadante, and drummer Andrew Caturano; this trio's collective experience includes recording with Bob Dylan, Chip Taylor and Carrie Rodriguez, and Kiss founder member Ace Frehley. That in itself covers a pretty wide base, but throw in the fact all three have worked the blues circuit with…

STEVE HOWELL & JASON WEINHEIMER - A Hundred Years From Today (Own Label)

 

When acoustic blues was first being picked up by white blues enthusiasts, it was the guitar virtuosity that was the focus; in the last few decades though, there has been a sharp increase in performers who can both play and sing convincingly. Marshall, Texas born Steve Howell is one of these. He was inspired to start moving beyond simple guitar strumming by seeing Mississippi John Hurt in 1965 (Steve was thirteen at the…

JOHNNY OSKAM - In My Shadow (Independent)

Johnny Oskam | In My Shadow

This is the second album from young Southern Californian singer/ guitarist/bandleader Johnny, following on from 2014's Soul Search. Johnny likes to play hard and heavy, with elements of Led Zeppelin (try the opening track), Albert King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Philip Sayce, and Jimi Hendrix, though there are also long quieter interludes, and his songs are written as such rather than mere excuses for extended guitar shredding. He is happy…
