Unless you are a Spanish Blues Aficionado, you will be hard pressed to pick out the different solos by these undisputed kings of their craft. However, once you give the CD a regular rotation you will start to hear the differences.
Danny Boy, who we here at CBBlues have come to know and love as a special guest at our events, has a smooth, rounded performance every time. His solos are like butter and his voice matches his playing. For example, the opening track “Drifting and Drifting” made famous by Charles Brown. The clarity and composure of Danny Boy’s voice enhances the lyrics, and that is what you want when playing slow walking blues!!
