Animal Blues

November 2015



Animal blues starts with " I feel so good " a J.B.Lenoir's classic where it´s plain to see band´s intention to make it closer to  blues rock in an excellent communion between slide guitar  and the solvency of the rest of the band. Song written by the legendary Mississippi guitarist and singer  gives step to " Everyday I have The blues " much more fitted to the tradition and executed in an elegant and effective way. B.B.King's stamp becomes quite clear specially in the guitar sound  as  Hammond's hot sound is displayed. “Little  Red Rooster” takes us again to half time blues - rock originally  conceived as a slow blues  as “Hound dog” influenced once again by jazz and Funk.

Turns out to be remarkable “Ain't nobody Business” cover where Jaime Alvarelos vocals and Alejandro MIngot Lap Steel take  control out of this American standard in  purest Animal blues as well as " Trouble in mind " which acquires own dimension  in the hand of this Pamplona band, a cover worth having being interpreted by The Band.  Animal blues versatility becomes evident in songs such as " Ain't superstitious " pretty close to  blues rock again or Blue Monday pays tribute to Louisiana's music  through Dave Bartholomew as well as  Big Bill Broonzy´s " I feel so good” moving on from what  originally  a shuffle up to New Orleans french quarter in a funky groove. Closing the album with Soul music contribution  " Something you got ",  backed up by a Horn section  and Hammond organ As clasp of gold, the original country blues by Mississippi John Hurt " Waiting for You”.
