CORNBREAD MORSELS III - A Seven Pack of Tiny Little Tidbits Worth Sinking Your Teeth Into!

Joe Louis Walker – Playin’ Dirty
Joe Louis Walker – Playin’ Dirty
2006 – JSP Records

Walker sings, plays guitar, piano and harmonica on this fast paced Chicago style blues little ditty. I really dug the groove that was throughout every song. I recon in years that follow we’ll become vastly familiar with this future blues demi-God. Definitely a must have!
Gary Moore – Close As You Get
Gary Moore – Close As You Get
2007 – Eagle Rock

With a career that started in 1960 as a guitarist, Gary Moore continues mixing original tunes with some interesting Blues songs. This CD shows Moore’s maturity, it rocks, its blues, and a couple of slower tunes. The CD was very well produced and shines. Without a doubt this gem will be one of the years best!
The Twisters – After The Storm
The Twisters – After The Storm
2006 – Northern Blues Music

All original tunes. Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne joins in with his signature piano/organ playing. Imagine the lights low in your favorite juke joint, smoky filled air and stale beer as this saltry-jazzy-soulful-jum-swing-blues bands takes us from the wee-wee hours of today into tomorrow and we slow dance with our girl one last time. Buy the CD, file it under Mojo – play often.
Revue: The Best of Paul Reddick
2007 – Northern Blues Music

18 tracks from Canadian blues pioneer. Most of the songs are originals with exception of Johnny Cash Train of Love and Son House Am I Right or Wrong? The guitar is dominant, vocals are intense, I really enjoyed Reddicks harmonica playing. The flavor is a modernized fast tempo Country Blues. Some good, some fair, some outstanding.
Mississippi Mudsharks – Train Rolls On Mississippi Mudsharks – Train Rolls On
2006 – Double Barrel Records / Crows Feet

The Mudsharks are guitarist Scottie "Mad Dog" Blinn and drummer Tom Essa, Mike Lars (bass) and bring us a high octane dose of punk blues driven by Blinn's gruff, Wolfman Jack-like vocals and blistering slide guitar playing. While not my cup of tea, I’m sure there are many folks that dig the grind and intensity of this.
Rich DelGrosso – Get Your Nose Outta My Business!
Rich DelGrosso – Get Your Nose Outta My Business!

In addition to mandolin, DelGrosso plays guitars and sings, special guests include Pineton Perkins, James Harman and Doug MacLeod. This is by far the best mandolin blues I’ve ever heard. It’s got sixteen fast paced songs, some originals, a Muddy song and a Robert Johnson song. Don’t let pass thru your radar! www.mandolinblues.com
Corey Stevens – Albertville Corey Stevens – Albertville
2007 – Ruf Records

Corey (a Centralia, Illinois native) plays musical tribute to Albert King with 10 songs Albert wrote/covered. Great guitar playing, vocally it lacked the intensity these songs deserved though it did kind of remind me of Robert Cray barring Little Brother which I thought I was listening to Jimmie Vaughan. I Get Evil was outstanding. Albertville is a really good CD (Stevens sixth) and worthy of repeated listening too.

'Cornbread' Ciao' for now, peace.
