SHOW # 264 - Live, Uncut & Uncensored Conversations With "Musicians You Should Know"
Markus James released his latest album back in October. The album is entitled Head For The Hills and was recorded in the delta in Mississippi. He is backed up by some Hill Country royalty. He music is the result of his love for the Hill Country of Mississippi and the sounds of West African Music and even toured in Mali, West Africa to continue his studies. Markus and I will explore this unique journey and listen to tunes from Head For The Hills.
Blues411 Report for April with friend Chefjimi Patricola will look back on the last month and look ahead to what is coming up with the music in the next month.
Blue Lunch hails from Cleveland and had a hit with their debut, Blue Lunch Special. They are back with Above The Fold, which dropped in November and there was no sophomore jinx with this one. The album has been getting a ton of airplay. Combining all types of blues, from Chicago, to Jump to New Orleans R&B and everything in between the band's music is infectious. I will speak with Guitarist Bob Frank about the new album and where the band is headed next.
Also released in November, Mike Osborn's In The Dog House blends blues, rock and country to provide some powerful music. Osborn's guitar work is stellar throughout and the whole thing was produced and mastered by Grammy award winner Alan Mirikitani who also wrote most of the music. Mike and I will talk about his musical influences and the album and more when he joins me.
