'Cornbread'By Cornbread

Steven Seagal & Thunderbox – Mojo PriestHarper – Down to the Rhythm
{2005 – Blind Pig}

Recorded in January, 2005 at Baker St. Studios in Burwood, Australia, this CD features ten original tunes. “Down To the Rhythm” was written, arranged and produced by Harper. If you’ve been following along, this makes the third CD from Australia, and these Aussies got it right.

Harpers got seven other blokes that bring us a soulful, rockin’ blues sound from down under. Simon’s guitar playin’ ignites a slow burnin’ groove that burst into flames when joined by Harpers harp.

The Band:
Harper – vocals, harmonica & didgeridoo
John Watson – drums
Simon Patterson – guitar
Roger McLachlan – bass
Mal Logan – keyboard
Andy O’Connell – tenor sax
Ross Irwin – trumpet
Kieran Conrau – trombone

1. Down To The Rhythm
2. Big Brown Land
3. Last Cup Of Coffee
4. Something Happened Here Last Night
5. Gimme The Money
6. I’ll Follow You
7. I’ve Been Waiting
8. Air (Instrumental)
9. I Believed In You
10. The World Starts Loving You

I can feel the rhythm, I can feel the beat, I can feel the rhythm movin down to my feet. I really liked Down To The Rhythm, Big Brown Land, and I’ll Follow You (the bass on this song is great) and Air, the only instrumental song here and I Believed In You – that’s half the CD. Harpo’s smoldering harmonica is both warm and intense, this is a great example of good harmonica where less is more. Track 2 is a country tune, as others are alternative country – slow rockin’ blues. This CD is mighty, mighty fine. I’m sure you’ll dig it and leave you wanting seconds. Throw another shrimp on the barbie, gulp a Fosters and enjoy! STLBluesometer 4.832.

Lots of peace, love and laughter til next time,
