Recensie: Joanna Connor – 4801 South Indiana Avenue

12 maart 2021|Recensies|

Een prachtig eerbetoon van Joanna Connor aan deze legendarische club met die bijzondere uitbaatster, ook wel bekend als ‘The Godmother of the Chicago blues’. Alsof er een deur is geopend in de legendarische kelderclub waar iets van de sfeer geproefd kan worden uit de ver vervlogen tijden. De knallende opener is meteen een spetterend duet met Jimmy Hall waarin een voorname rol is weggelegd voor de toetsenist die indertijd deel uitmaakte van Double Trouble en waarin rauw slidegitaarwerk de boventoon voert.

John Hiatt & the Jerry Douglas Band – Leftover Feelings

4 maart 2021|Nieuws, Releases|

John Hiatt with The Jerry Douglas Band will release Leftover Feelings on May 21st via New West Records. The 11-song set was produced by Jerry Douglas and recorded at Historic RCA Studio B in Nashville, Tenn. A meeting of two American music giants in a legendary setting, Leftover Feelings is neither a bluegrass album nor a return to Hiatt’s 1980s days with slide guitar greats Ry Cooder and Sonny Landreth. There’s no drummer, yet these grooves are deep and true. And while the up-tempo songs are, as ever, filled with delightful internal rhyme and sly aggression, The Jerry Douglas Band’s empathetic musicianship nudges Hiatt to performances that are startlingly vulnerable.

Jimbo Mathus And Andrew Bird – These 13

2 maart 2021|Releases|

These 13 is a little bit folk, a little bit gospel, a little bit bluesy, a little bit Hank, a little bit hill country, but most emphatically, it is all heart. Andrew Bird and Jimbo Mathus have climbed the height of their creative ladders in this collection of soul-strung songs, both lyrically and musically, a synchronicity between the two that feels joined in some special imaginative place that can only be visited by the best of songwriters.
