Blues News From Portsmouth - August 2016 - Cockerel Blues EP released... Views: 27841


Welcome to this months blues newletter.

**Cockerel Blues EP Released**

Most exciting new this month is the release of my new colection of
instrumental blues on the Cockerel Blues EP.

The new EP brings together a selection of instrumentals, each with very
different twists on the blues. starting with the exuberantly funky slide
guitar driven title track. It then moves to a gentler jazzier sound on the
acoustic guitar led "Mariachi Blues", drawing in the sounds of Mexico, then
onto a solid soul shuffle with "Soul Shuffle Spread". "Ottoman Blues"
brings in a distinctly Arabic sound, and the final track "Iceman" is very
much a tribute to the great Albert Collins, though with a hint of Hendrix
in there too!

As well as myself it features Simon Tufnail on bass, and Alan Blackmore on
drums.

You can buy it from my website here

buy downloads (available in various high quality formats) you can buy them
