Wir freuen uns über gleich zwei Neuheiten aus dem Hause RUF RECORDS und unseren neuen Künstler COREY STEVENS.

Mit der Veröffentlichung seines sechsten Albums "ALBERTVILLE" geht für Corey Stevens ein Wunsch in Erfüllung. Schon lange träumte der in Kalifornien beheimatete Musiker davon, einem seiner größten Vorbilder ein ganzes Album zu widmen. Dieses Vorbild heißt Albert King. Mit dem großen Linkshänder aus Mississippi, der mit seinem »Born Under A Bad Sign« einen der absoluten Klassiker der Bluesgeschichte einspielte, verbindet Stevens eine ganze Menge – nicht zuletzt die Erinnerung an ihre einzige Begegnung. »Albert King die Hand zu geben, gehörte zu den größten Momenten meines Lebens. An dem Abend spielte er als Zugabe vier Songs auf einem schier unerreichbaren Niveau.« 

Auch wenn der Vorgänger aus 2005 Alone at Last bei seinen Fans gut ankam, wollte Stevens mit seinem Ruf Records Debüt neue Wege gehen. Vier Monate lang arbeitete er daher meist sieben Tage die Woche an Albertville. Das Ergebnis ist eine beeindruckende und sehr unterhaltsame Hommage an King. Bei neun einst von King eingespielten Titeln sowie einem originellen Songbeitrag geht es – getreu dem Vorbild – nicht um aufdringliche Gitarrenexzesse, sondern um ausgewogene Songs mit unwiderstehlich souligen Rhythmen als Fundament. Ob beim groovenden Opener «Real Good Sign«, dem brodelnden «Breaking Up Somebody's Home« oder dem fast Reggae-mäßigen «Little Brother (Make a Way)« – man spürt die Sorgfalt und Begeisterung, die hinter jeder dieser Aufnahmen steckt. 
Corey Stevens : Albertville

Auch Candye Kane veröffentlicht in diesem Monat eine neue Studio CD. " GUITAR'D AND FEATHERED" ist ein Festschmaus an gefühlvoller Musik. Es ist eine atemberaubende Variation aus verschiedenen Gästen und Stilen und dabei singt Candye mit einer solchen Tiefe und Kraft, dass sie allein den Kurs hält! Die Gastgitarristen verleihen die passende Note, um Candye's gesangliches Können ordentlich nachzuwürzen und sie zu inspirieren. "GUITAR'D AND FEATHERED" beginnt und endet mit Candye Kane. Sie ist bekannt für ihre spannende und unterhaltende – und manchmal nur für Erwachsene ausgerichtete – Bühnenshow. Candye Kane ist ihr wirklicher Name und die Frau, die Du während der Show auf der Bühne siehst ist eben so wirklich und real. Candye Kane versucht nicht ein «Showbiz-Image« zu präsentieren. Es ist so einfach, sich durch das Showspektakel ihrer Performance mitreißen zu lassen, aber vergiss nie: Candye ist die geborene und eine äußerst begabte Sängerin, die durch Gesang ihre Menschlichkeit an uns weiter gibt. Der Gitarrensound, der sie umgibt, ihr Federkleid, das ihr etwas schräges Image widerspiegelt, umspielen ihre Stimme, welche uns aus dem tiefsten Blues in unseren Herzen zur puren, lüsternen Lebensfreude und zu wilden Abenteuern reisen lässt! Candye Kane : Guitar'd and Feathered

Besuchen Sie Candye Kane auf der "High End" am Freitag, den 18.05.2007 und Samstag, den 19.05.2007 im Artrium 3 (Stand von In-Akustik: Tonträger BL9 A20 Halle 3). Dort wird Candye Kane ihre neue CD "Guitar'd And Feathered" vorstellen. Es wird bunt... Ab April 2007 wird Corey Stevens mit "ALBERTVILLE" und Candye Kane mit "GUITAR'D AND FEATHERED" im Handel erscheinen.

Harper Song On
"Dog The Bounty Hunter"
Tonight!


Photo ctsy BlindPigRecords

"I've Been Waiting" by Blind Pig recording artist Harper will be featured on the hit A&E television series "Dog The Bounty Hunter" tonight,  Tuesday, April 17th.  The episode, entitled "Rusty Cuffs," (#74/75) will be an hour long show, which generally means more viewers.

"Dog" is the highest-rated program on the A&E network, consistently getting over two million viewers for first-run episodes, and retaining high numbers for subsequent airings.

"I've Been Waiting" is from Harper's 2005 Blind Pig debut album Down To The Rhythm.  On the TV show, the tune  isn't used simply as background music, but as an integral part of the story.  In addition, at the end of the program, a five second slate will appear with the album cover artwork and the name of the song, the artist, and the album title.  In addition, on A&E's website, the "Dog the Bounty Hunter" home page will display the album cover and a short sound clip.

Harper, part harmonica wizard and part rhythmic explorer, skillfully blurs the lines between rock, blues, soul, and world music.  He's also a gifted songwriter and musical visionary unafraid to mix the didgeridoo, an instrument associated with the indigenous culture of his Australian homeland, with infectious modern percussive rhythms.

The Slide Zone News

Roy Rogers Spring News 2007

Spring 2007

Hello and Happy Spring!
It’s about time it got here isn’t it?

Lots of great news to report. For those of you who like to travel or do long term planning there are some terrific opportunities to see Roy and the band this spring and summer. Some event/festival highlights for this season include performances in Brazil in June, in Italy in July, in Norway in August and Australia in November! So Roy is hopping the globe once again. Here on this side of the pond festival highlights include the Doheny Blues Festival near San Diego in May, the Santa Cruz Blues Festival also in May, The Russian River Blues Festival in Sonoma County in June, Eureka Springs Blues Festival in Arkansas in June and the Pinedale Blues Festival in Wyoming in August.

There is plenty more to come – so check the website often for updates.

We finally received the tracks back for ‘Slide of Hand’ and ‘Slide Zone and will be releasing “The Best of Two” set this summer. These were Roy’s “Capitol Nashville” years and these two CD’s have been off the market for a few years. Some of you will recall that the great New Orleans pianist Allen Toussaint is featured on “Slide of Hand” and there are some killer duets with Bela Fleck on ‘Slide Zone.’ So we are very happy to have these releases back! We hope to have them in the web store and distributed nationally in retail stores by June. The radio promotions will start in May.

It’s a crazy world out there and our fans are everything to us – so keep safe – hug those close to you. We also want to remind you not to forget to help our friends in New Orleans anyway you can. We support the New Orleans Musicians Clinic and the Global Green / Active Music’s initiative to re-build New Orleans “Green” - a great effort down there. (Please see these websites for more information: www.active music.org / www.globalgreen.org / www.neworleansmusiciansclinic.org)

As always, thank you for supporting LIVE music and the band and we’ll see you on the dance floor!

All the best,
Gaynell Rogers

>>>>> Chief Schabuttie Gilliame hospitalized: Chief Schabuttie Gilliame was hospitalized today with a heart condition. He is currently in the Critical Care Unit at Phoenix Baptist Hospital. You can send get-well cards to this address:

Schabuttie Gilliame/Patient
Phoenix Baptist Hospital
2000 W. Bethany Home Rd.
Phoenix, AZ 85015
(602)249-0212


Chief seemed fairly brisk this afternoon, but seemed to have some complications with his asthma as the day progressed. Chief, who has unconventional religious leanings, says that he is praying to the Gods of Voodoo and to Allah Jesus that he will be okay. More updates on Chief’s situation as we know more.

Blues fans will know Chief Schabuttie Gilliame from his brilliant album, Snakes Crawls at Night, on the Random Chance record label. Here is Chief’s story from the liner notes of that record:
“I loves to sing and I loves peoples.” Around Phoenix we affectionately call Schabuttie Gilliame by “The Chief”. He resides in a small community just west of town called Buckeye and plays regularly in Phoenix and around California. Born in Egypt on September 15, 1925, Chief was blues schooled in Arkansas and Louisiana before bringing his unique musical perspective to Arizona some 25 years ago. A stout, jolly man who calls voodoo his religion, Chief is a lover of big-legged women and he claims to have 7 wives and 17 children. He speaks with a heavy African accent, writes from right to left, and sings with a gravelly voice that has been likened to Howlin’ Wolf. A natural on the stage or in the studio, Chief entrances himself in his singing while delivering his message with great passion. I have been a fan, sideman, and friend to Chief since I moved to Phoenix in 1981. Here, at last, is an example of Chief’s fine work in 10 exciting performances of his original songs, with a top notch lineup of backing musicians. When it comes to writing, singing, and entertaining the blues, Schabuttie Gilliame is definitely “The Chief” around these parts. –Bob Corritore

The Rhythm Room will host a benefit for Chief on Sunday, May 13, 2007, hosted by Nightshift featuring Tommy Grills, who Chief has been playing with recently. Many special guests to be announced will also play. Doors open at 6pm, a minimum donation of $5 is asked to cover Chief’s medical expenses.

>>>>> Rhythm Room live anthology CD art complete: Speaking of Chief Schabuttie Gilliame, he will be featured on one song of the new anthology of live recordings celebrating 15 years of the Rhythm Room. On this CD, Chief sings his original song, “Monkey Meat”, never before released. He is accompanied on that track by Johnny Dyer, Henry Gray, Johnny Rapp, Paul Thomas, and Steve Cushing (a great blues drummer best known for his national radio show, Blues Before Sunrise, which is nationally syndicated). Also on this CD are The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Robert Lockwood, Jr., The Mannish Boys featuring Finis Tasby, Long John Hunter, Floyd Dixon, Kid Ramos, Louisiana Red, Billy Boy Arnold, Paul Oscher, Big Pete Pearson & the Rhythm Room All-Stars (Bob Corritore's band), Sonny Rhodes, and more. The artwork for this CD is complete, and you can get a sneak preview by clicking here. Artwork courtesy of Tony Amato of Amato Image Design. This CD will be released on Blue Witch Records, and the release date will be announced shortly.

>>>>> Thank you Delta Groove Records: As many of you know, Big Pete Pearson and Bob Corritore have been added to the Second Annual Delta Groove All-Star Blues Revue "West Coast Meets Chicago" on Friday, May 11, 2007, the day after the The Blues Foundation's 2007 Blues Music Awards in Memphis. The event takes plact at Gibson Beale Street Showcase - 145 Lt. George Lee Avenue, Memphis, Tennessee 38103. Cost : $12, doors open at 5:30pm - get there early! First band kicks off at 6:00pm! $12 in advance www.gibsonmemphis.com and at the Gibson Pure Retail Store, $15 at door (cash only at door).. We want to thank Rand Chortkoff and all of the staff of Delta Groove for including us in such a generous way in their promotion. They have a beautiful slideshow/banner ad that is making its way all around the internet. To view the slideshow, click here. Big Pete and Bob are very excited to be performing among these great musicians in this blues industry oriented event. By the way, the new Mannish Boys record, Big Plans, will be out shortly, and it’s a fantastic CD of straight-ahead West-Coast/Chicago blues.

>>>>> Thank you, Big City Blues Magazine: Robert Jr. Whitall and Shirley Mae Owens are huge supporters and participants in the blues scene, and their great magazine, Big City Blues, is a reflection of this. In the latest issue of Big City Blues, they review Big Pete Pearson's I'm Here Baby on Blue Witch Records in a glowing light. You can read the review by clicking here. On the Big City Blues website, there is a great photo of Kim Wilson and Amanda as well as an interview featuring Kim Wilson talking about the album Time Brings About A Change: A Floyd Dixon Celebration on HighJohn Records. Also, on the Big City Blues MySpace site (maintained by blues musician Steve Arvey), the Dave Riley and Bob Corritore MySpace is the featured “MySpace Artist of the Week”. Though this happened last week, it is still up as such, and you can see this site by clicking here. They feature a song off the new Dave Riley & Bob Corritore CD, which will be out later this year on Blue Witch Records, who plans to have it out right before the Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival, which is where Bob and Dave Riley first met.

>>>>> Chico Chism Memorial show announced: May 23, 2007, would have been the late Chico Chism’s 80th birthday. On this day, many of Chico’s friends will gather at the Rhythm Room to pay tribute to our recently deceased friend. The show will be hosted by Chico’s last Phoenix band, George Vaught and The Flamekeepers. Bob Corritore and many of Chico’s musical friends will perform at this event. A minimum donation of $5 is asked, which will go to some of the unpaid costs associated with Chico’s funeral last January.

More great press for Big Pete Pearson: Big Pete Pearson's new album, I'm Here Baby on Blue Witch Records, has continued to make news. As mentioned above, it just received a glowing review from Big City Blues. In the April issue of Living Blues Magazine, just out, we find that Big Pete Pearson was number 22 in the February Living Blues Radio Chart, and number 11 in the March chart. Thank you to all the stations across the country and around the world who have given this record their support. Big Pete Pearson was recently filmed and interviewed for the Travel Channel, and is being presented as an integral part of the Phoenix cultural landscape. We recently posted some new reviews of Big Pete Pearson on the review section of www.bobcorritore.com, including a great review from the French ABS Magazine. Big Pete Pearson and the Rhythm Room All-Stars will perform at the Lucerne Blues Festival (in Switzerland) later this year, and Big Pete Pearson and guitarist Mike Howard will do an opening set as a duo for the May 20th Buddy Guy show at the Mesa Arts Center.

SAT. 04.14.2007 · 09:30PM · $22
Steve Forbert is widely regarded as one of America's premier singer/songwriters, as well as an early exponent of the alt.country movement. "Just Like There's Nothin' to It," is Forbert's first new album of original material in four years. The CD showcases his rootsy songcraft, clear-eyed lyrical insight and plainspoken eloquence.

Reigning Kings of Surfabilly - The Dillengers
WED. 04.18.2007 · 09:00PM · FREE
The Dillengers' music is what it might have sounded like had Ennio Morricone fronted the Circle Jerks with the curse of Link Wray hanging over their heads. Boynton Times described a typical Dillengers performance as, "...a blistering set including themes from the movie Goldfinger and The Monkees TV show, a Patsy Cline cover, an avalanche of surf music and an original tune about sighting a naked Elvis at the zoo..."

The Heavy Pets are Off the Leash!
THU. 04.19.2007 · 09:00PM · $7
The Heavy Pets combine elegant songwriting with blazing chops, thought-provoking lyrics and a heavy, danceable backbeat.
