商品説明

Great Day In The Morning! Don't want those apocalyptic views, no time for that doom and gloom news. We'll it's certain that we all need to turn the corner-in fact, our session for this record was postponed due to hurricane Sandy. So-with the help of Margey Peters-I whipped up a batch of new songs, and chose three tunes I've always loved*, for what has to be positively our most feel-good album yet! I play more bottleneck than ever on this recording. We dip into a variety of feels. Of course we play the blues. I wrote a new one, Sit Down And Talk, as well as covering Tampa Red's Anna Lou, which is the antecedent of Anna Lee, and possibly the first song to Go to Louisiana and get me a mojo hand. (You'll hear that in the bridge.) There's folk blues, some fun swings and rags, and even one song with a Soca flavor, It's A Good Life. And of course, good old American roots 'n' roll! I gathered some of my favorite musicians-who also happen to be some of the world's nicest people-and went into producer Dave Gross' Fat Rabbit studios to make our 4th CD. Master violinist Charles Burnham plays with us on five numbers, and his romping fiddle is a joy to hear. It's been my consistent pleasure to play with crackerjack drummer Bill Rankin. Ace horn players Matt Cowan and Jim Davis are again on hand. The very creative Michael Bram plays mandolin on two of the songs, and the supremely versatile V.D. King lends just the right twang on banjolele. Margey's on electric bass, while producer Dave Gross handles upright bass duties when she plays second fiddle. Wonderful singers Christine Santelli and Gina Sicilia add a harmonious touch to two songs. And just when you thought it couldn't get better, Jeremy Baum stopped by the studio to drop off his B3-and jumped on keys for a couple of numbers. All in all, it was a Great Day In The Morning! -Brad Vickers 2013 Special Note: *All proceeds from bonus track Dallas Blues, which we had released digitally in March 2012 celebrating the centennial of this first published blues, will continue to benefit The Blues Foundation's H.A.R.T. Fund for musicians with medical needs.

They would be damn proud of this release. -Chef Jimi Patricola, BLUES 411 US Vickers expertly conjures his heroes on originals... and receives superb support from his band. -Bob Weinberg, JAZZ/BLUES FLORIDA US A true one-of-a-kind band, mixing and mastering wildly divergent styles, always sounding credible, and never mass-produced. -Roger & Margaret White, BIG CITY RHYTHM & BLUES US 'Traveling Fool' is simply wonderful. One can hardly withdraw oneself from the disc. -ROCKIN' BLUES Germany A highly-entertaining set of vintage rockin' blues that's guaranteed to liven up your next party! -Sheryl & Don Crow, NASHVILLE
