BACKGROUND + MEER INFORMATIE
FRAN McGILLIVRAY BAND Midnight Call (2017)
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‘Swan Songs’ in 2015, 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.

Zoot MONEY ‘s ‘‘The Book of Love’ (2016) is 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.
