The Captain Legendary Band - TCLB Live ! ( 2013 ) Eccellente live nella migliore tradizione Country/Southern Rock !

Da Baton Rouge ( Louisiana ) ho il piacere di presentarvi The Captain Legendary Band, una band poco conosciuta ma assolutamente da inserire nella propria collezione musicale per tutti gli appassionati di Country Rock, Southern Rock e dintorni. 

Attivi ormai da diversi anni hanno pubblicato 3 ottimi album e nel 2013 questo spettacolare doppio live in cui troviamo ben 27 tracce musicali che ci trasportano in una piacevolissima atmosfera Country/Southern Rock come nella migliore tradizione.

Una band molto interessante da scoprire magari proprio attraverso questo bellissimo live.

TCLB Live has been a long time in the making for The Captain Legendary Band. Since it's inception, fans have enjoyed the band's sometimes rowdy and always entertaining live shows. Winning the Academy of Texas Music's "Live Band of the Year" award in 2010 solidified TCLB as one of the premier live acts in the South. With the awards and vigorous touring schedule came the clamoring for a live record from fans old and new. With the support of The Captain Legendary Band's loyal fan base, the group pulled off a two set fan appreciation extravaganza that just happened to be recorded. The band put on two shows, one acoustic, and one electric to a packed house at the historic "Firehouse Saloon" in Houston, TX. It included many of the band's fan favorites along with several new songs that are soon to be standards as well. Throw in the engineering magic of Grammy winner Adam Odor and you have TCLB Live. It really is like you were there!

Addio a Johnny Winter, leggenda del Blues.

Brutte notizie per il mondo del blues: il leggendario Johnny Winter è morto ieri, 16 luglio 2014.
Winter, che ha compiuto 70 anni a febbraio era malato da tempo ma non ha mai smesso di esibirsi dal vivo e a comporre musica.
A settembre uscirà un nuovo album intitolato "Step back", con collaborazioni di Eric Clapton, Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Joe Perry (Aerosmith) e altri illustri esponenti del Blues e del Rock.

Grazie Johnny, la tua musica, la tua chitarra, la tua classe ci accompagneranno per sempre.
Rest in Peace.

Royal Southern Brotherhood - heartsoulblood ( 2014 ) The South ( music ) is rising again !

Fresco di pubblicazione, heartsoulblood è il secondo album del supergruppo Royal Southern Brotherhood, fantastica band che può realmente fregiarsi del titolo di supergruppo vantando come membri fondatori i grandissimi Mike Zito, Cyril Neville e Devon Allman.

Dopo il folgorante esordio con l'album omonimo nel 2012, questo secondo lavoro conferma ancora una volta la straordinaria creatività e talento musicale di questi immensi musicisti regalandoci un travolgente mix di Southern Rock, Blues e Soul a livelli di assoluta eccellenza.

Imperdibile ! 

The Beginning……Mike Zito, Devon Allman, Cyril Neville ~ The soul of the south. Amplified soul for the new generationBefore they even hit a chord, The Royal Southern Brotherhood have your attention. In the US South, where music is religion, two rock ‘n’ roll bloodlines tower above all others. In the saloon bars from Mississippi to Maryland, mere mention of the Allman and Neville Brothers casts a magic spell. Conversation falls silent. Pool balls stop rolling. Ten-gallon hats are tipped in respect and beer-bottles raised in salute. These aren’t just bands, they’re gods, and with a lineup comprising both the iconic Cyril Neville and Devon Allman, The Royal Southern Brotherhood come pre-loaded with expectations. Don’t worry: they can match them. The family tree might be auspicious, but this new band trades on talent, not genealogy. It’s not about rock history: it’s about the here-and-now.This lineup has talent to burn. You’ll already know Cyril Neville: poet, philosopher, percussion master and perhaps the South’ last great soul singer. Devon Allman. As the son of Gregg Allman, the 39-year-old has rock ‘n’ roll in his DNA, but he’s always walked his own path. Mike Zito: the blues ace whose ear for melody provides the counterpoint to his wingman’s rocking tendencies. Nominated in 2011 for the Blues Music Foundation’s ‘Best Blues Rock’ award, and winner of 2010′s Blues Music Award. Bassist Charlie Wooton and drummer Yonrico Scott: both heavyweight names in their own right, with Charlie’s bass chops celebrated on the Southern jam scene for his sets with the Woods Brothers, and Yonrico hitting the skins for luminaries including the Derek Trucks Band, Gregg Allman and the Allman Brothers themselves.They said that rock ‘n’ roll was dead, but they were wrong. Right now, in 2012, there’s something in the air, as The Royal Southern Brotherhood drag their thrilling new brand of blues-rock and white-hot musicianship from the Southern States onto the world stage. The South is rising again. Come along for the ride.

Juan Barbosa - The Road Back Home ( 2013 ). Eccellente Rock Blues/Soul dal Canada.

Da Huntsville  ( Ontario, Canada ) ho il piacere di segnalare Juan Barbosa, un grande musicista che con The Road Back Home, album totalmente autoprodotto, ci offre un sound trascinante e divertente che spazia abilmente tra atmosfere Rock Blues, Soul e Country Rock.

Un musicista completo e molto interessante, da seguire con attenzione.

My entire life i have been bouncing between different styles of music. Whether it was Thrash metal, Hip-hop, Rock & Roll or dark synth pop, I was always told there was a "bluesy" tone to my playing/vocal style.  So it got me to thinking (as well as other things in my life that were going terribly wrong at the time) "why not write a blues album?", so that exactly what im gonna do! alot of these songs were written during my busking phase in belleville with the guidance of my father eddie "kojak" barbosa, so i will be dedicating this project to his memory. He was a good father and a brilliant musician, and his spirit will live on through the things he taught me. I believe his spirit is on this material. The thing i love about the blues is that it can be stretched in so many different directions, while still remaining "blues" at its core. This unique stylistic quality is very well suited to me since i cant ever seem to sit in one musical space for too long :-/ here i have more space musically and can move around and still hold on to that bluesy goodness that i love so much.I'm not really trying to be different anymore. I'm not trying to create a "new sound" or anything crazy like that. I'm just trying to write some funky blues based soul music that sounds good to my ears. And if it sounds good to other peoples ear thats great! Really what i think that ive known all along is that by not trying to create something for the sake of being original, I have written some of the most honest songs i feel i have ever been a part of. Funny how that works ain't it?Before when i used to start a project, I would think to myself "what kind of persona do i want to create?". It was a way to escape into another world, or make myself feel more powerful/vulnerable depending on the project or what emotions i needed to let out. But now it doesn't feel like i'm hiding or trying escaping from anything. Its all very natural, which is different. And i like it :DI very much hope that you enjoy the music on this page. And thanks for listening!
