Mid-Century Modern By Al Basille

a6

Al Basile is one of the more interesting blues artists working today. His use of the cornet as a central instrument and at time replacing his vocals, is unique.

His new album, Mid-Century Modern, is produced by fellow Rhode Islander and bluesman extraordinaire Duke Robillard. It focus’ more on the brass than many of his past releases, which allows him room to stretch out on the cornet.

He has always been a talented composer and here he takes the music back in time to when brass was king. The lyrics move from introspective to humorous. It all adds up to another strong effort by Basille.
