The Blues Overdrive – „Overdrive Live“ – cd – Gateway music

Uuh, time is goin’ by quickly. it was already in 2015 when The Blues Overdrive released their last album “Clinch”. This masterpiece of modern blues was also the winner of the European Blues Awards in the categaory Album Of The Year. No worry the band from Denmark was not fallin’ into a sleeping beauty dormancy. They were permanently restless and on tour live from Germany, over Poland till the whole Scandinavia. So here it is in 2017 their sign of life and vitality for the whole world without any overdubs or embellishment of sound – “OVERDRIVE LIVE”

“Death On The Highway” is the rollin’ and strollin’ blues-rocker as kickstarter with a country twang. This song is significant for their life on the road. Martin Olson on vocals proves what hell of a strong shouter he is. Great opening track to kick ass and to electrify. “Three Time Lover” next the Chicago style is dominated by the rhythm guys Brother Birck on bass and Louisian Boltner on drums. On top Andreas Andersen manifests by his solo escapades that he is a virtuoso on the axe, regardless which blues-rockin’ or any music-style he plays. “Ball & Chain” next as extravaganza nine minutes & more longtime blues-ballad is the absolute highlight of “Overdrive Live”. Martin’s canto is ever so sensitive and soulful. The grooves by the rhythm-armada and the six-string-whisperings & moaning spread a spooky, psychedelic, horrifying-beautiful atmosphere. As Halloween nears this is the hot tip for your nightly party. Your beloved will immediately snuggle to you and kiss you fervidly to keep the bad demons away, haha…  “Everybody was Rocking” has a fervid, funkin’ spice-up by bass and drums, besides the rock’n rollin’ guitar-wizardries by Andersen. “Cherry” is a hooky ballad even with a calypso-flair by the guitar-struttings. “I Was Wrong” is the bluesy, rock’n rollin’ grand final with a buckshot of jazzy-boppin’ frequencies.

The Blues Overdrive manifest by “Overdrive Live” how alive, tantalizing and diversified the Blues & Blues-Rock” can be!

SaRon Crenshaw is unfamiliar to you as blues-fan or genuine lover of wonderful music? Ooh, you gotta absolutely listen quickly to his electrifying new cd “Goin’ To Get Deep”!!! The “New York Hall of Fame” bluesman recorded it live at the Berkelse Bluesclub in Holland with his Dutch friends from Blind B’ & The Visionairs featuring Bart Kamp on bass; Patrick Cuyvers on Hammond, piano and Frank Duindam on drums. They raised a magical musical storm live past weekend on Sunday at Blues Peer 2017. Ladies & Gentlemen – Are you ready to praise the blues at home, work or on the highway by “Goin’ To Get Deep” by SaRon Crenshaw And Blind B’ & the Visionairs?

The opener and title cd-track “Goin’ To Get Deep” is a phenomenal Chicago Blues featuring SaRon at his best! His string string solos are ever so hotblooded and his voice is ever so powerful. Bart and Frank are escorting him most vibrantly as rhythm-duo. Enchanting start to hoodoo you. By “The Moon Is Full” it’s gettin’ funky-bluesin. A great band jam is to emerge. The high-peaks are definitely the solos of SC and Patrick as Hammond wizard. By “Lie To Me” SaRon takes you on a journey way down south to New Orleans. His guitar-extravagance can be described as mélange of “Mississippi Delta Meets Nawlins’ Swingin’- Jazzin’Blues”. “Feels Like Rain” is a most soulful, recreative, sensitive and just beautiful ballad. By “Guitarman”, a self-composition by SaRon, he and Blind B’s were in the mood for groovin’ funk- blues-rock to animate you to dance. Play it at your next party as hot-tipp! By the consecutive “44 Blues” Crenshaw’s guitar intro is the fingerpickin’ delta-blues style. It progresses into a groovy band-tease jammin’ axe, hammond, bass and drums tempest. The absolute highlight of the cd!  “Old Love” can be entitled by the live-presentation as Southern Blues Hymn with soulful voice and a gospelous attitude.  By “Wang Dang Doodle” SaRon Crenshaw & Blind B’ & the Visionairs bid farwell to their auditorium and you by this “Laisser Les Bons Temps Rouler” anthem the blues-rockin’ kick-ass style! The live-sound is superbe and authentic.

BLUESPAM- “What Is Mojo” – cd – bluespammusic

BLUESPAM is since its foundation in 2009 and by devotion a blues & -rockin’ band teasing on top by a sweet-hot liquor buckshot of funk, soul and heavy-rock. Their home region is the shire of Bentheim in Lower Saxony, Germany. The border to The Lowlands and Enschede is only a rock throw away. This town is well known as the domicile of the famous NIX & MEER blues club. Blues-icons like Candye Kane, The Mason Rack Band, The Delta Saints or “Uncle-Boogieman” Michael Katon love or loved to perform there live whilst being on European tour. The stylish venue is also famous for its “Jamsesjuns“ (jam sessions). The founding members “Pappen” Geert Hermann Meyer on bass; background-vocals, “Alex” Alexander Rosenhof on guitar; lead-vocals  and “Mike” Bosch on  drums till his sad death in 2014. They have been regularly and gladly welcomed line-up guests to excite there live. In 2011 their ferocious blues-harp player Heino Sluet was joining in and in 2016 Wilfried “Cis” Pötter was replacing internationally renowned drummer Joel Purkess who persued his intl. career. By so many gigs they have really gained by their energetic and sweaty shows the high reputation as a top blues-rockin’ formation. So now you know a bit of history of BLUES P (for Pappen) A (for Alex) and M (for Mike). In 2017 “What Is Mojo” as their debut cdis catching finally the glimpse of light. So get excited, ready to dance as longhorn-torrero and torrera and bang your head!

“When I’M Grey And Old” as red hot opener will hoodoo you from the very first chords by the sensational, extraordinary “Mississippi-Sax”- intro-battle by Heino and stomping drums by “Cis”. It is to mélange consecutively into an extravagance jam-session by Alex playing a diabolic slide-axe, also on whiskey-matured canto, the general of rhythms “Pappen” on forceful bass and Heino on harmonica. Play this cracker loud and it will blow your house’s roof of and torment your ground! “Let’s Talk About It” is by play-style of BLUESPAM by the theme of “Texas Meets British Blues”. The U.S. South is famous for its spicy cuisine, so “Eh La Bas” they would say by the interpretation of “Are You Moving On” – the gumbo is chily-ardent by the musical spice-up of funky grooves. After so much heat there is time for a bourbon on ice and some relaxation by the beautiful ballad “Someday” as commemoration to Stevie Ray Vaughan as blues guitar-god. “What Is Mojo” surprises as cd title-song with a kick-ass heavy rocking impact and the axe-shredding solos by “Alex” are in the vein of JoeSatriani and Steve Vai*. The magnificent highlight-song of “What Is Mojo” is “Star Wars” as meditative ballad featuring harp-enchantment in the tradition of the group WAR, warm-hearted and melodic six-string artistry and chant. Close your eyes and dream of a journey to the Milky Way galaxy  and back to Earth on a comet. By “One of A Kind” the guys celebrate their modern façon of honky tonkin’ rock’n roll. BLUESPAM celebrate the Dixieland hymn “Cross Roads” utmost miraculous by their Spanish Flamenco inspired intro, vocals from perceptive to sinewy and even heavy guitar artistry.  Their version will absolutely put a spell on you! Texas struttin’ “Worries On My Mind” concludes the cd. It is the song of the low-tone-maestro Meyer on four-string, the sensitive vocals  of Rosenhof in the beginning and melting into a concluding hurricane jam the heavy southern-rock-style to boogie your wazoo a final time.

A stunning first energy power blues-rockin’ opus! A purchase chef’s suggestion for all music enthusiasts  and not only genre-specialists. If you are after the first listenings of phenomenal by sound-production by maestro Rosenhof “What Is Mojo  still negotiating BLUESPAM with the word of spam the sympatico guys would not would not mind if you spread a good word as promotion-spam for them to sell millions of copies of “What Is Mojo” as their lucky charm to get rich, haha…
