Scott Holt - A Tribute to Buddy Guy

From Lettsworth To Legend
A Tribute To Buddy Guy

At the age of 20 Scott Holt joined the legendary Buddy Guy Blues Band and for the next 10 years toured the world spreading the blues. This album is dedicated to Buddy Guy and is a loving musical tribute to the blues master. All the songs in this collection were hand picked and are the songs that are most associated and written by the blues legend, Buddy Guy. Along the way, Scott Holt has also added his guitar talents and played with Eric Clapton, Davie Bowie, Carlos Santana, Koko Taylor and Willie Dixon to name a few...
In 2000 Scott broke out on his own and formed the The Scott Holt Band. Scott truly can be called the hardest working blues man in show business today. Scott has appeared on television shows such as The Tonight Show, Conan O'Brien, Good Morning America and Austin City Limits to name a few. The Scott Holt Band now travels over 200 dates a year spreading the blues and that very special Scott Holt magic!

Kim Wilson - Smokin' Joint

Smokin' Joint
Recorded At The Rhythm Room,Phoenix
February 26th and 27th,1999

White men can play the blues. Sure, there's not the built-in authenticity of their genre-creating black counterparts, but it can be done. Rock & roll's mere existence is proof. Vocalist and harmonica player Kim Wilson — best known as the frontman of the Fabulous Thunderbirds — offers a wide-ranging blues workout on his 2001 live solo album, Smokin' Joint. Wilson recorded Smokin' Joint with two different bands over four nights. He captured shows on February 26 and 27, 1999 at The Rhythm Room in Phoenix, AZ, and December 8 and 9, 2000 at Cafe Boogaloo in Hermosa Beach, CA. The 13 songs are a blend of originals, covers, and traditional blues standards. Wilson used the same rhythm section of bassist Larry Taylor and drummer Richard Innes in both bands. Guitarists Rusty Zinn and Billy Flynn performed at The Rhythm Room gigs while guitarists Kirk Fletcher and Troy Gonyea, and pianist Mark Stevens were featured at the Cafe Boogaloo shows. "Ain't Gonna Do It," "Oh Baby," "Got to Let You Go," and "I Can Tell" have a jazzy, shuffle-inflected kick, whereas "Good Time Charlie," "Early in the Morning," "Telephone Blues," and "High & Lonesome" follow the standard, slow-burn blues format. Among Wilson's originals are "Smokin' Joint," an instrumental with a '50s rock & roll flavor, and "Learn to Treat Me Right," which progresses into a '60s R&B/rock & roll vibe. Overall, Wilson's rich, rumbling voice and harmonica playing are in fine form. He doesn't break any new ground on Smokin' Joint — unlike the Fabulous Thunderbirds' hits such as "Tuff Enuff," "Wrap It Up" and "Powerful Stuff," in which polished blues muscled onto the pop charts — but its greater purpose is to keep this kind of music alive.

Dave Specter - Bluebird Blues

Bluebird Blues
Featuring Ronnie Earl

There wasn't any musical generation gap between young Chicago guitarist Specter and his much older front man Barkin' Bill Smith. Specter's love for the electrified 1950s styles of Magic Sam, T-Bone Walker, and B.B. King blended well with Smith's deep, almost crooning baritone pipes on what was the debut album for both men. Lots of breezy swing informs the retro-styled set.

Dave Specter - Speculatin'

Dave Specter

This is an all-instrumental disc that is exclusively neither blues nor jazz, but a blend of each. It marked the first time the tasty Chicago guitarist recorded only instrumentals, but folks who were Specter fans before this one could probably feel it coming. Though he has worked with some delightful vocalists (Barkin' Bill Smith, Lenny Lynn, Tad Robinson, and Lynwood Slim) he has sprinkled a few instrumentals into previous albums, and the format clearly suits him perfectly. For the most part, Specter is accompanied here by his working band and gives Rob Waters plenty of room to roam on Hammond B-3. Nine tunes are originals (one by Waters), and covers include Dizzy Gillespie's "Birk's Works," the Meters' "Look-Ka Py Py," and "Hot Cha" (a Willie Woods tune that became a hit for Junior Walker). The band also swings on soul-jazz organist Charles Earland's "The Mighty Burner" (the flipside to Earland's "More Today Than Yesterday"). You won't find many covers of this one, save a 1970 recording by Clarence Wheeler and the Enforcers. "At Whit's End" is Specter's tribute to his late compadre and guitar pal, Bob Whitman. The minor-key cha-cha spotlights Specter's frugal, delicately paced guitar style and Waters' rapid B-3 runs. "Blues A-La-King," with phrasing similar to some of B.B. Kings' earlier work, is a "backward" shuffle that best demonstrates how tight this band is. Specter and Waters adopt a marvelously aloof, sassy mood and take off together on the opening phrases of "The Haleiwa Shuffle," named for the artist's favorite Oahu getaway. The only song that doesn't fall in line with the general feeling here is "Dark Hour Blues," a slow and grinding stomp in the key of E through J.L. Hooker/Lightnin' Hopkins territory that is tacked on to the end of the disc. Still, it's proof positive that Specter can do it all. Speculatin has set the record straight: blues instrumentals are not just for breakfast anymore!

DVD - Albert Collins - Live at Montreux,1992

Live At Miontreux,1992

Hearing Albert Collins' icy guitar sound on disc is exciting, but watching the "master of the Telecaster" burn through a typically blistering set adds a whole other level of appreciation to the experience. He was a consummate showman whose crowd-roaming with a 150-foot guitar cord — before the advent of wireless gear — made him as famous for his live sets as his studio ones. This generous DVD delivers a two-for-one bargain, as it features Collins' first 40-minute show at Montreux in 1979 in addition to the hourlong titular set, the latter also available as a companion audio CD. He is on fire for both shows, although perhaps moving a bit more slowly in 1992, which preceded his untimely death by just a year. As was his norm, Collins stretched songs to their breaking point on-stage, and three of the seven tunes he performed in 1992 break the ten-minute mark. But his playing was so inventive and his stage presence so rousing that nothing seems overly extended or drawn out. A two-man horn section provides brass that bolsters the dynamics and his band, featuring longtime bassist Johnny B. Gayden, is tightly rehearsed — but this is all Collins' show. He's clearly in his element on the 11-plus-minute slow blues of "Lights Are On (But Nobody's Home)," taking his time while laying out the edgy, brittle leads that were his trademark. Collins was touring behind his 1991 Iceman album, and two tracks from that disc are included in the seven-tune set, including a rollicking 15-minute take on the funky/humorous "Put the Shoe on the Other Foot," which features Gayden's popping bass solo. The camera work on the 1992 show is typical of others in the Montreux series, i.e., smooth and professional but far from slick. It's a lot better than the 1979 performance filming that, while somewhat clunky, adequately captures the action. Both sets boast an excellent Surround Sound mix (in DTS and Dolby 5.1) and end with Collins' signature tune, "Frosty." The earlier version, all 12 minutes of it with a guest appearance from Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, is the real keeper, and perhaps the hottest playing of either concert. With nearly two hours of Collins seemingly having a ball while tearing it up in front of appreciative audiences, this is required viewing for existing fans and a perfect introduction to those unfamiliar with the great bluesman's dynamic, crowd-pleasing concerts.
