I've just finished watching the latest musical offering from Mr. Joe Bonamassa. "An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House" was released today and is available on two disc DVD, BluRay and CD format. Purchases can be made at most large retail music stores, at on-line music sites or via the artists official website.


My first impression: Mr. Bonamassa is elegant and deserving of headlining this historic venue. His classically trained guitar skills are prominent on each of the newly arranged songs, as four, handpicked and culturally diverse, musicians from Ireland, Sweden and the USA add their own unique spice to the audible brew. An Irish bango, mandolin, baby piano, accordian, glockenspeil, Nickelharpa and various ethnic percussion, create a colorful and worldly sound.

As you will see, the official trailer is designed to be a teaser and is no replacement for actual viewing of the full-length feature. I highly recommend purchasing this DVD as soon as possible.

Look for my full review in the days to come.

Yours in music,

This groove inspired, world harmony making, all out jamming quartet, will rock your house!

 Rival Sons are: Scott Holiday (guitar), Robin Everhart (bass), Mike Miley (drums), and Jay Buchanan (vocals).

HEAD DOWN is an eclectic collection of great musicianship.  

And with a global tour in the works, the band is just getting started.

"Gotta Get Over," from Eric Clapton, who is touring this Spring, was released this week from his new album, Old Sock.

We love the Alabama Shakes, and Brittany Howard is taking the recording world by storm. Grammy nominated Best New Artist, Best Rock performance (Hold On), and Best Recording Package for the debut album, Boys and Girls, Howard is just getting started in mesmerizing audiences, as she belts out her naturally hip voice. Ghana to Nashville, singer-songwriter, Ruby Amanfu joins her in a great collaboration, which will be released on Third Man Records, a label produced by Jack White.
