CORNBREAD MORSELS I - A Six Pack of Tiny Little Tidbits Worth Sinking Your Teeth Into!

The Fremonts featuring Mighty Joe Milsap – Mighty Crazy
The Fremonts featuring Mighty Joe Milsap – Mighty Crazy
2005 Wooden Monkey Music
Mighty Crazy finds the Fremonts revisiting the classic 50's and 60's blues found on classic labels like Chess, Excello, and Sun records, while seamlessly adapting original material to recording techniques from the mid 1950s. Special guests are Carl "Sonny" Leyland (piano) and Rip Carson (bass), with flavors of Slim Harpo, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Rogers, and Lightnin Slim. I liked it
David “Honey Boy” Edwards – Blues, Blues
David “Honey Boy” Edwards – Blues, Blues
2006 – Documents Records
“Honeyboy” Edwards is an original Delta Bluesmen, who traveled the South as a hobo in the 1930s and who shaped early folk music into todays Rock n’ Roll. Honeyboy Edwards was born in the Mississippi Delta in 1915, the son of a sharecropper. Honey Boy recorded this in Vienna, Austria 1975, he played guitar and harmonica, and sings too. Recording is fair, put this in the Delta-Country-Blues category. It’s sippin’ lemonade from the mason jar blues.
The Matt Schofield Trio – Ear To The Ground
The Matt Schofield Trio – Ear To The Ground
2007 – Nugene Records
The Matt Schofield Trio is one of the most musically dynamic bands on the UK blues scene. On this CD, The Trio play upbeat blues and funky stuff, that oozes vibrancy and rock energy, you’ll be blown away by the talents of Schofield (Guitar & Vocals), Henderson (Hammond) and Jenkins (Drums). 9 original and Freddie King and BB covers. A new favorite of mine! This CD is outstanding!
Big Daddy ‘O’ – Deranged Covers
Big Daddy ‘O’ – Deranged Covers
2004 - Rabadash Records
Big Daddy 'O' is a sweet singing hard driving Acoustic Blues Artist from the Louisiana Mississippi Delta. Big Daddy covers Hiatt’s Feels Like Rain, as well as James Taylor, Leon Russell, Robert Johnson and others including Key To The Highway. This all acoustic blues is traditional but in a modern well produced way. It’s kinda mellow, easy on the ears. Give it a spin.
Ken Tucker – Looking For A Brighter Day Ken Tucker – Looking For A Brighter Day
2006 – Jamar Records
Don’t let the down home package fool you. I expected a front porch, jug tooting acoustic blues CD and got was a well-seasoned blues rocker in the tradition of the Allman Brothers, Joe Walsh, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. This is the second release from the Indiana based southern-fried, blues rocker. Well worth adding to your collection.
John Lee Hooker, Jr. – Cold As Ice
John Lee Hooker, Jr. – Cold As Ice
2006 – Telarc
JLH Jr’s sophomore CD mixes straight-up Chicago blues and smooth contemporary jazz with hints of soul, funk R&B. This leans more to jazz than blues. A couple of songs I’d say he’s outright rapping on. It’s fair, the lyrics are kinda lacking, but the big-band backing Hooker is quite good.

'Cornbread' Ciao' for now, peace.
Peter 'Cornbread' Cohen, CBP
