TRILOGY shines a spotlight on Ana’s musicianship. Whether it’s through Ana’s agile guitar shredding or with her soulful voice. The three volume release has been a labor of love it shows. Recording and putting together such a large collection of songs across several genres was no easy task. Ana demands the best when it comes to her music, and this album holds up to her own standards, and industry standards there. Every musician on the album is such a master at their own instrument that throughout the record, Ana and her band are effortlessly able to transition from genre to genre. Ana describes TRILOGY as her biggest career accomplishment to date.On Trilogy, guitarist Ana Popovic shows off her omnivorous musical approach, which draws equally from blues, jazz and rock.

Mike Bloomfield, Al Kooper, Steve Stills – Super Session (1968) remastered 2003

Mike Bloomfield, Al Kooper, Steve Stills - Super Session (1968) remastered 2003

 

USA FlagOriginal Album Released: July 22, 1968
Released Reissue Date: April 8, 2003
Genre:Blues, Jazz, Soul, Funk
Label: Sony
USA

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

Super Session album for sale by Mike Bloomfield / Al Kooper / Mike Bloomfield / Stephen Stills was released Apr 08, 2003 on the Sony Music label. A surprise best-seller when it was first released, this mostly improvised pairing of singer/keyboardist/producer Al Kooper with two major guitar heroes of the day sounds fascinating all these years later precisely because of the distance of time–nobody makes records like this any more. Super Session is an album conceived by Al Kooper and featuring the work of guitarists Mike Bloomfield and Stephen Stills. Bloomfield and Stills do not play together on the album, with tracks including Bloomfield on side one, and those including Stills on side two. It peaked at #12 on the Billboard 200, and has been certified a gold record by the RIAA.

Line up:

Al Kooper – Guitar [Electric], Guitar [12-string], Organ, Ondioline, Piano, Vocals
Mike Bloomfield – Guitar [Electric] (tracks: 1 to 5)
Stephen Stills – Guitar [Electric] (tracks: 6 to 9)
Harvey Brooks – Bass
Eddie Hoh – Drums
Barry Goldberg – Electric Piano (tracks: 1, 2)

Ironing Board Sam has had a legendary sixty years: Jimi Hendrix briefly played in his band, he’s played shows under water, he’s shared a club residency with the Jackson 5, he’s played inside human-sized jukeboxes. And you’ve almost certainly never heard of him.He’s returned with a new record, Ironing Board Sam & The Sticks with a new band, Ironing Board Sam & The Sticks. Hailed as a « jamming » record, it certainly sounds like it.

This 1984 Clarence « Gatemouth Brown concert proves is how timeless, ageless, and transcendent both this artist and his craft are. Brown’s final recordings, mere months before his death from lung cancer in September 2005, sound no less fresh, vital, and beyond categorization than the music of this performance of more than twenty years ago.The Blues of Clarence « Gatemouth » Brown was recorded February 4, 1984 at The Maple Leaf in New Orleans.This Brown’s concert extended the language of those two releases with his fearless ambition to play in any damn style he pleased.

John Mayall – Smokin’ Blues

John Mayall - Smokin' Blues (2012)

Great-Britain-180-animated-flag-gifsRelease Date: April 3, 2012
Genre: Blues, Jazz, Live
Label: Secret Records
UK
Recordings from two concerts in Frankfurt, 2nd May 1972 (four tracks) and 17th May 1973 (eight tracks).

18f7930fad60fbdb8a8200d3f35d8a3c

Here’s a nice addition to the vast back-catalogue of the legendary British bluesman and band leader John Mayall, although perhaps the title, “Smokin’ Blues” may be a little deceiving as this release has a quota of jazz flavours. Not from John Mayall’s greatest period, but a very worthy release and a fitting tribute to many of these great players who are sadly no longer with us, including Keef Hartley, Freddie Robinson and Red Holloway.

Line up:

John Mayall: Guitar ,piano, harmonica, vocals,
Freddy Robinson: guitar,
Victor Gaskin: bass,
Keef Hartley: drums,
Blue Mitchell: trumpet
Cliff Solomon: tenor sax on tracks 1-4.
