We talk a lot about the influence of the blues. Blues guitar, roots, acoustic, electric and slide, are all topics of exciting interest and history.

Mick Houser, bassist for Dr. Mudd, Skeleton Crew, and the historic Wasted Angel, every now and again will write in to remind me that the blues guitar pieces, although stunning and important, need the support of kickin blues bassists to make a great song.

He recommends these articles for our readers and I agree.

We caught Peter Frampton's performance of "Frampton Comes Alive" at the Hanover Theatre last night in Worcester, MA.

It was a great show ! Review article will be posted soon. Be sure to visit us here at Bluebirdreviews again for updates !

RIP Jimmy Castor: The Jimmy Castor Bunch. jimmycastor

January 17, 2011

It is with great sadness that I learned today from Bob Davis at the Soul Patrol Newsletter that Jimmy Castor has died. Mr. Castor was 71 years old and passed away in Las Vegas. At this time we don't know the cause. He has the credits and recognition of hip hop, pop, funk, soul, R&B and fans worldwide. As a brilliant musician, bandleader, sax player, quirky lyricist and great vocalist, his music is unmistakable and has been iconic for decades.
