Rhythm & Blues
|blues, rock, gospel: On May 8th 2002, local songwriter, guitarist & singer Ralph Bryan, lost his battle with brain cancer. Not only was he a brilliant musician, but an extremely devoted father as well. It is for this reason some of the best musical talent Sonoma County has to offer, once again, rose to the occasion. The result of this effort, is a compilation CD featuring performances by: Willy Jordan & Souljoy, John Allair, Danny Sorentino, Micheal Barclay Blues Band, Dr. Joel Rudinow, Earl Thomas, Stony Point, Volker Strifler & the Blue Zone, the late "Big Bill" Ganaye & the Cool Tones, Solid Air, The Real Tones w/ Steve Judkins performing 3 previously unrecorded songs, including, "So Sad to be Lonesome", Ralph Bryan's last session. With the exception of some legal fees, minor recording costs and the actual, physical manufacture of the CD package itself, the sound recording "When You Were Near", was produced entirely by donation. Studio time, engineering, editing, graphics, the tracks themselves were all offered without hesitation and unconditionally. All proceeds from the sale of "When You Were Near", will be used to create a trust to fund Elena Bryan's (Ralph's 14 yr old daughter who penned the poem "When You Were Near", the inspiration for this project) college education .This is yet another sterling example of musicians and artists coming together in the true spirit of community. The result is a surprisingly diverse cross section of styles and performances from a group of very talented artists getting together to meet a single goal.
