Rhythm & Blues
|blues: Big Sale! Blues & Rhythm Magazine wrote, 'Mountain Top West Coast Blues Session' brings together four of the finest blues musicians working on the West Coast, for a CD that will be an essential purchase for all lovers of that genre.' This 15 track CD features Gary Smith on harmonica, Paris Slim on guitar, Johnny Ace on bass and Walter Shufflesworth on drums -- and all four share vocal parts. This CD was born during the filming of Johnny Ace's instructional video, 'Ace on Blus Bass'. Mountain Top had assembled the very best in Bay Area blues talent. As we filmed, we couldn't help tripping over the blues chemistry of these four -all band leaders in their own right. Original songs and covers by Screaming Jay Hawkins, John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Reed, Lowell Fulson, and Willie Dixon. HARP: Gary Smith, was in the original Charles Ford Band He also played with Charlie Musselwhite, Luther Tucker, Hi Tide Harris, Nick Gravenites, and Ron Thompson, and played on Sonny Rhodes' classic, 'I DON'T WANT MY BLUES COLORED BRIGHT'. GUITAR: Paris Slim heard the blues calling when he was 16 in Paris, France. He followed his vision to Oakland, earned permanent sideman honors in Troyce Key's notorious ELI'S MILE HIGH CLUB house hand, and worked with Lowell Fulson, Jimmy McCracklin, Big Mama Thornton, and Sonny Rhodes. Handy-nominated Paris Slim delivers a dynamic power on the guitar that is both "aesthetic" and 'in the alley' at the same time. BASS: JOHNNY ACE, from Queens, N.Y., began his career in 1966 in Manhattan's lower East side. He recorded with the Brooklyn Blues Busters and appeared with Victoria Spivey, toured with Charlie Musselwhite, John Lee Hooker and Otis Rush. DRUMS: Big Walter Shufflesworth's tours with Lightning Slim, Lightnin' Hopkins, and Big Walter Horton earned him his graduate degree in Blues Roadology. Walter is the driving force of the Dynatones, a household name on the Bay Area blues scene with six albums.
