Awesome Blues

Accardi / Gold / Bachtold

Price $16.97

Anatomy of a music engine - at the core of the Carousel - a trio of musicians pumps life into the heart of the blues. Searing guitar lines weave an elegant tapestry of sound with the solar splashes of a Hammond B3 atop a rock solid rhythmic foundation strong enough to swing a Universe.

The incredibly popular Ride That Carousel album has been remixed and taken to essence, appearing here as the incomparable instrumental Awesome Blues. Put on your travellin' shoes and dance the blues.

An instrumental CD with soul-searching harmonica solos (you would swear it was lead guitar), rip-roaring guitar rifs, and rockin' drums recaptures and is reminiscent of great sessions with E.J. on harmonica playing with Jimmi Accardi and Bob Bachtold.

When I was a lot fitter than I am now I'd hit the treadmill in the morning with "Awesome Blues" blasting in my ear buds - the first bars of "Ride that Carousel" still wake up the old machine. Listening to it now makes me want to get up and move. This album is pure class and energy - if you want to get up and groove it's for you!
