(so far), January 18, 2011 this review is from: low Country Blues (Audio CD) in the liner notes for "low country blues", Robert Gordon writes "a river that flows through the blues and Gregg Allman continues to pass to it. This album deposits Gregg in a cool on the shore. He is a traveler, sometimes riding with the current, swim upstream, when he prefers ".
This new release is proof of the success of trip by Gregg. When I received my copy of "Netherlands", I am sitting uninterrupted through all twelve tracks. Two times. Some projects are memorable for well-written songs, thoughtful and large sequencing instrumentation. Others are so comprehensive, so that you just don't want to listen to all the rest for a while. "Netherlands" fall into the latter category.
ACE producer t-Bone Burnett is also responsible for B.B. King's latest, the wonderful "one kind favor".That disk kicks off with a very dark version of "the Blind Lemon Jefferson See that my grave is kept clean". The opener for this disc, "drawbridge of Sleepy John Estes" is a song like that in the format, but where "Favour" is a pattern, the "bridge" is a bitter reminder. Both songs, and on two CDs, the presence of masterful piano of Dr. John is as important as that of the stars.
"A bit" is a staple Junior Wells that begins with an introduction to B-3 funky Gregg, then you have most of the good doctor with fills big guitar by Doyle Bramhall II. "Devil got my woman" shows the greatest strength of Burnett as a producer of music roots-the ability to take a song Skip James since 1930 and remake in 2011-without sacrificing any integrity. Gregg's voice are almost Ethereal, with double guitar interplay between Bramhall and Colin Linden on the dobro.
"I can't be satisfied" is one of the most beloved works by Muddy Waters, and Gregg and company do this justice song while a showcase slot created by Jay Belrose of drummer and bassist Dennis Crouch.
"Blind" is the first appearance on the disk of the horn section of trumpeter Darrell Leonard. Leonard has recorded for years with tenor saxophonist Joe Sublett as horns by Texacali. Here you are increased from Lester Lovitt and Daniel Fornero trumpet with Thomas Peterson and Jim Thompson to sax baritone and tenor. The horns are on five other tracks giving the album a powerful punch of r&b classic, especially on B.B. King "Please accept my love".
The only original on disk, "just another pilot" was co-written with Gregg Allman Brothers partner, the master of guitar Warren Haynes. Very reminiscent of another collaboration Allman/Haynes, "the high cost of low living" (by Hittin brothers 2003 "' the note"), the song seems to deal with the protagonist himself as the previous track. "High cost", Gregg warns "using all your good friends" and the "Knight", you can almost see him shake his head as he sighs "seems a long time since you had a peace of mind".
"I think I'll go back home" is an old issue with Mike Compton added mandolin to the mix, while the magic of Sam "my love is your love" is enriched by the beautiful female choir organized by Bill Maxwell in the public domain. The traditional closing, "rolling stone" is one of the many highlights, featuring Dobro Colin Linden again in a soft acoustic jam.
This recording good belongs to t-bone as much as it does to Gregg. The production is excellent and the choice of musicians couldn't be better. Gregg set to record that could be proud. With "low country blues", just may have made the album of his life. help other customers find the most useful reviews This review was helpful?
13 of 16 people found the following review helpful: 5.0 out of 5 stars more bluesy style, January 18, 2011 this review is from: low Country Blues (Audio CD), Gregg Allman did record both solo and with the Allman Brothers since 1969. He has never made an album like this before. With an original melody ("Rider just another") and a few familiar blues covers ("I can't be Satisfied". "Independent", "Little"), the main objective of this new CD is less familiar songs to acoustic country blues.Producer t-Bone Walker and Allman selected songs that are suitable for the talents of Allman.
Gregg's voice is still in good shape and has the support of a band of top notch here. The support is more sparse on this CD of a typical Allman Brothers CD, spotlighting the voice a bit more. Of course, fans of the Allman Brothers Band and solo work of Gregg will this love and can formulate a new fan even if some people that I'm not a fan of listening to "Low Country Blues". help other customers find the most useful reviews This review was helpful?
