Listen here to this week’s edition of The Blues Come Calling:

The blues keep rolling on and, it seems, flourishing . . . if the great new releases are anything to go by. There are some very fine albums being released, or due soon, including the debut album by Bristol’s own, Victoria Klewin, ‘Dance me to heaven’. It features Victoria’s own songs, along with some superb musicianship from her 7-piece band The TrueTones, who cross from blues to funk to jazz, with effortless ease and some shining examples of each. Another joy was Annika Chambers’ new album ‘Wild & Free’ which I happen to think is a great showcase for her impressive vocal talents.

The Bruce Katz Band were another welcome ‘find’ with some fine blues on ‘Out From The Centre’, along with Canadian blues songstress,Tracy K’s appropriately titled new album ‘What’s The Rush’. We were really pleased to have a preview of the forthcoming release from Nine Below Zero and the titled track from Ross Neilsen’s ‘Elemental’ certainly made us sit up and listen, but to get the whole show started, we had the Freddy King favourite ‘Hideaway’ from Joe Bonamassa’s new album ‘Live at The Greek Theatre . . .

.Tracy K - What’s The Rush
Some might debate whether ‘Don’t Play That Song For Me’ is really a blues song . . . but not here . . . if it sounds good and it’s from Nine Below Zero . . . it’s in! But, as the end of the show crept up on us, we decided to play out this week with something from Canadian, Tracy K. Her forthcoming album is so appropriately titled ‘What’s The Rush?’, because it’s taken 2 years to record and produce , but well worthwhile, judging by it’s opening track ‘Everybody Wants’. So, with a wave and a smile we said our farewells, with the hope that you’ll be back the next time The Blues Come Calling. Until then . . . remember . . . have fun!
