This young guitar slinger has soul steeped in Blues-R&B-Soul&Rock n' Roll!
As you know my son Curt is a volunteer DJ at radio station KDHX in St. Louis. He is also in charge of posting and labeling new cd's that come into the station. As a result, he turns me on to a fine selection of new music.
The latest is a new cd(sorry, no vinyl at this time from "Bella Blue Records"), by the Nick Moss Band called Time Ain't Free. Nick Moss is a Chicago blues player that has been around for about 25 years and plays traditional Chicago blues. This cd contains 14 tracks and is 77 minutes long. My favorite cuts are Fare Thee Well, track 4, Ex Bree Zee, track 11 and Walkin' On a Ledge, track 12. The Nick Moss Band has a guitar player by the name of Michael Ledbetter whom I have never heard of. For those of you that like Hammond B-3's and guitar solos, you will especially like track 14 called (Big Mikes) Sweet Potato Pie. There's only one problem with this song - it's not long enough. Hopefully you can buy it from my store in vinyl one day, as this lable is associated with Alligator Records, but for now, available on CD or download only.
