ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND

FRAN McGILLIVRAY BAND MidnightCall    
“Midnight Call” is the new album by The Fran McGillivray Band, to be launched in London on 7 January (at Brook’s Blues Bar, new location at The Seven Dial Club, http://www.brooksbluesbar.co.uk). After two albums as a duo with a rather spare sound, the band returns as a trio and now comprises Fran McGillivray (vocals, flute, bass), Mike Burke (guitars, mandolin, mandola, voacls) and Roger Nunn (drums, percussion, djembe, vocals). This line-up is augmented with a number of renowned guests, namely Alan Glen (harmonica), Mike Paice (sax) and Martin Smith (steel guitar, Hammond), resulting in a more swinging, fuller sound. As expected though, The Fran McGillivray Band doesn’t come nowhere near the current blues sounds of wailing guitars and we are all the happier for that. With ten originals out of elevenn tunes, Burke and McGillivray have repeated and finetuned what they do best: gentle and loveful blues with feeling and emotion without getting dentimental and their messages nicely wrapped up so they are bound to sink deeper (‘Blood On Your Hands’). Like before, the band have avoided the blues templates that have become commonplace and often boring, reaching back to their jazzier times as So Long Angel, adding a twist of folk here and country there. The steel guitar on ‘Midnight Call’ pushes the song towards country, but that’s just fine. Burke and McGillivray are fine song-writers who love the blues and expand its possibilities rather than sticking to limiting formula.  (Eddy Bonte).

GEORGIE FAME, ZOOT MONEY

Georgie FAME released his last album in 2015 and called it  ‘Swan Songs’,  stating no more should be expected  by this wonderful composer, singer and keyboardist who effortlessly covered jazz, pop, blues and lounge plus anything in-between. He scored pop hits with Alan Price and added his original touch to Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings. When all is said and done, ‘swinging jazz’ must be the key word.
Radio 68 plays tracks from ‘Swan Songs’,  earlier work and Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings feat. Fame.
Zoot MONEY has a new album out  (‘The Book of Love’,  2016) and that’s a nice surprise after countless years of recording silence. Money can still be found  playing in London and all over the UK, enjoying himself singing and playing the keyboard. It’s hard to pin down Money, but he gave us mighty R&B and soul music with his Big Roll Band, joined Eric Burdon & the Animals in their hippie / psychedelic period, went experimental with Dantalion’s Chariot and a few solo albums.

THE FACES BOX SET
The 5-cd box set “1970-1975 YOU CAN MAKE ME SING, DANCE  OR ANTHING” holds reissues of four albums with bonus  tracks and a fifth cd with stray singles and b-sides.  Some bonuses are short outtakes that sounds quite chaotic or otherwise rather irrelevant, but there are some nice alternate takes and above all very nice live versions released for the first time or hidden away for ages, such as their  take n “I Wish It Would  Rain from the Reading Festival , 1973

LOST IN PARIS BLUES BAND

Radio 68 has played  Paul Personne quite often, but  – apart from France that is – he remains an underrated singer-guitarist who is too often and unjustly so associated with bluesrock. Hopefully, this project will turn the tide and get him the recognition he deserves.

« L’album est le fruit d’une session improvisée aux studios Ferber en compagnie d’artistes d’exception. On y retrouve John Jorgenson, guitariste d’Elton John ou Bob Dylan. Robben Ford guitariste de blues et de jazz renommé, ayant notamment accompagné Miles Davis. Ron « Bumblefoot » Thal connu pour son étonnante carrière solo mais aussi pour avoir remplacé Slash et Buckethead dans Guns N’ Roses. La voix féminine de l’album est assurée par la chanteuse d’origine américaine Berverly Jo Scott, notamment jury de l’émission de télévision The Voice en Belgique. La section rythmique est quant à elle assurée par le bassiste Kevin Reveyrand et le batteur Francis Arnaud qui ont l’habitude d’accompagner la crème de la variété française. L’opus présente treize 13 reprises de standards blues, folk et rock, dont « One Good Man » (Janis Joplin), « Trouble No More » (Muddy Waters), « Watching The River Flow » (Bob Dylan). Paul Personne déclare : « Lost In Paris Blues Band est la rencontre improbable de musiciens libres, ouverts et disponibles à se réunir trois jours dans un studio parisien pour une session de Blues fun et amicale. La vie peut avoir de belles surprises. » (source : http://www.radiometal.com/article/news-paul-personne-album-lost-in-paris-blues-band,225563).
