|JOHNNY "V" VERNAZZA
||LIONS AND THIEVES
||CD: $10.00 (US) - NEW
($9.00 with *discount)
|AT THE BEACH RECORDS
|blues: Best known for his work with the Elvin Bishop Band in the 1970's, including the 1976 #4 hit, "Fooled Around and Fell in Love," Vernazza has played guitar with some of the biggest names in music, from Van Morrison to the Grateful Dead. Vernazza has spent decades on stages big and small around the world, honing his craft and this album is the culmination of that experience. Now more than a decade in to his solo career, his new album, Lions and Thieves, delivers on the promise of a lifetime in music.Ably backed by bassist Jim Reeves, drummer Brian Cantrell and keyboardist Mark Bentley, the album's 14 tracks cover a lot of ground. Indeed, Vernazza may be considered to be one of the finest blues and slide guitar players going today,but his sound is expansive. As detailed his blues varies, from the sweet soul edge of "Open The Door" to high octane rocker "Jungle," the latter a sure fire single surely destined to be much covered in the future.While the albums core group are all seasoned veterans, Vernazza also called in a few friends to help in the albums creation, with Elvin Bishop, Charlie Daniels and Albert Lee all contributing to Lions and Thieves.Long time fans will love every second of Lions and Thieves, but anyone who enjoys great blues and rock will need a copy of this album in their collection|
|THE JOHNNY NOCTURNE BAND
||MILLION DOLLAR SECRET
||CD: $12.75 (US) - NEW
($11.47 with *discount)
|BULL'S EYE BLUES
|swing, jazz, blues, rhythm & blues: Long before the current swing revival, saxophonist John Firmin was shaping his Johnny Nocturne Band into the classiest, hardest-swinging outfit on the West Coast, "the creme de la creme of contemporary jump / swing bands," according to San Francisco Examiner critic Philip Elwood. Million Dollar Secret is the first Nocturne album to feature the vocals of Kim Nalley, who Elwood calls "the best band singer, any style, I've heard in years." Still in her mid-20s, Nalley evokes the spirit of such singers as Dinah Washington and Helen Humes. Here is timeless music that excites dancers and listeners alike: the hottest little-big-band jazz you're likely to hear. John Firmin, tenor sax, clarinet (11) and leader / Kim Nalley, vocals / Marty Wehner, trombone / Bill Ortiz, trumpet (all except 5) / Pete Sembler, trumpet (5) / Rob Sudduth, baritone sax / Henry Salvia, piano / Anthony Paule, guitar / Alex Baum, bass / Kent Bryson, drums / Tommy Kesecker, vibes (4, 5) and percussion (9).|
|GARY SMITH, PARIS SLIM, JOHNNY ACE, WALTER SHUFFLESWORTH
||MOUNTAIN TOP WEST COAST BLUES SESSION VOL. 1
||CD: $11.25 (US) - NEW
($10.12 with *discount)
|blues: 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.|
