Marcia Ball is a force of New Orleans piano playing & a Texas roadhouse fireball! Her new album "Roadside Attractions" from Alligator Records is a pumped-up, gulf coast piano force to be reckoned with!
The title of Johnny Rawls' new CD "Memphis Still Got Soul" is as descriptive as an album title can get. Johnny's perfect soul voice, horn section, B3, and sultry female backup singers are the perfect soul music combination.
He's been called a "virtuoso vocalist." He is notorious for his relentless touring schedule. His blues is tinged with soul, and his brand of soul is infused with blues. His harp playing has been called "insanely good." He has been nominated for nine Blues Music Awards.
For those that haven't had the pleasure of finding themselves in a southern juke joint, this album will show you what your life's been missing. Red floats between slow-droning and searing harmonica fused with mean, mean licks.
