Title:
Last Hand
Release Date: 8/21/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 7-24-20) Last Hand is a song cycle in blues and roots style which tells the story of a May-December romance. It's Al Basile's 17th solo CD, and he sings these new songs of his with a keyboard trio backing him up drawn from the Duke Robillard Band who have been on his CDs going back ten years. Al wrote, arranged, and produced this project. It will have a 200 station radio promotional campaign by Todd Glazer Promotions, a four month publicity campaign by Mark Pucci Media, and print ads in Living Blues, Blues Music Magazine, and Blues Blast. Al says: "For the first time after forty years of recording and twenty of making my own records, I decided t add the producer's hat to my hatrack. This one's all on me - it was time.

Title:
See What The Lord Has Done For Me
Release Date: 7/17/2020
Format: CX
List Price: (A28) $28.98 

The songs on this collection, recorded in 1968 and 1970 at the Pittsburgh apartment of Ernie Hawkins find Reverend Gary Davis in a relaxed mood. The playing is light and loose at times as he reaches back into his vast musical memory to pull one surprise after another from his “bag of tricks” (his nonchalant term for guitar playing). Fingerpicked on the Rev’s Gibson J-200 and a borrowed Martin D12-35, these performances were not for the stage or the recording studio; rather, they chance upon Davis playing reflectively to himself and Ernie, you the listener privy to the intimate musical camaraderie caught on tape. So while not every note is perfectly played, it is perfectly Davis, who wows us with marvelous additions to his songbook and performances that stretch out in masterly ways: a “Blow, Gabriel” that swells in fiery exhortation over twelve minutes; an emotionally wrenching “Crucifixion” just under twenty minutes with neither note nor word wasted. As the title says, these are rare and previously unissued recordings, ones of historic and musical value. It’s uncommon for an artist to bemuse us anew nearly fifty years after his death, but Davis does so here. “That suits me,” he sings joyfully on the opening track, and I guarantee it will suit you, too.

Title:
Love, Devil's And The Blues
Release Date: 7/17/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (A16) $16.98 

Stefan Grossman blends his version of folk, blues, ragtime and jazz into this wonderfully eclectic album from 1988. This collection of solo acoustic guitar instrumentals reflects Grossman's influences from the likes of the Rev. Gary Davis (with whom he studied the guitar) to John Renbourn (with whom he has recorded numerous duet albums). Whether fingerpicking or utilizing a slide, Grossman's music evokes a timeless quality. A wonderful collection. Includes a PDF tab/music booklet with some of the tunes transcribed. Re-release of 1988 Shanachie album.

Title:
Yazoo Basin Boogie
Release Date: 7/17/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (A16) $16.98 

Stefan Grossman has spent so many years producing videos and how to books on acoustic guitar, it's hard to think of him as a guitarist himself, which is why albums like this are so valuable and reassuring. Grossman can back up everything he says and believes musically, with an encyclopedic knowledge and feel for country-blues, rags, and fiddle tunes as demonstrated here. He runs through a gaggle of fine-sounding instruments, alternating between slide, 12-string, and fingerpicked six-strings in a plethora of tunings, and never fails to deliver top-notch playing on every track. A must-have for folk-blues guitar enthusiasts. - AllMusic Review by Cub Koda. Includes a PDF tab/music booklet with some of the tunes transcribed. Re-release of 1988 Shanachie album.

Title:
On The #1
Release Date: 7/17/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (A15) $15.98 

On The #1 is my 5th CD. I always felt that there was a magic to the #5, and I know that we have captured the magic in this recording. On The #1 has been my signature phrase for whenever I sign off, it means to me being right on point, focused. That's how I feel about this recording. Once again my band has committed to the groove that has taken us to the next level. Igor Atalita, Bryan Carrot, Vince Cherico, Craig Rivers, Ruben Rodriguez as well as myself, have become the recipe for our own sound. I had the good fortune of adding Tim Ries as a special guest on tenor and soprano saxophone.

Title:

Creativity is very much alive, and music is the celebration of life.’ Trilogy highlights in musicianship.
