Texas Rhody Blues By The Knickerbocker All-Stars

There are Texas blues. There are Rhode Island blues. And now there are Texas Rhody Island blues.

Rhode Islanders Duke Robillard, Monster Mike Welch meet Texans Jimmie Vaughan, Sugar Rayford, and Willie Laws, along with drummer Mark Teixeira and a full brass section in a modern eclectic blues summit.

Listening to such tracks as “Respirator Blues,” “Texas Cadillac,” and “Ain’t That Dandy” makes you quickly realize how good a blues guitarist Mike Welch is. But two great guitarists are better than one, so when Duke Robillard and Jimmie Vaughan come together on “Going To The Country,” “I Have News For You,” and “Blood Stains On The Wall” you have a true blues guitarists delight.

In many ways you have a collection of excellent blues musicians just having a good time together creating good music.

In addition to some mighty fine blues there is an added incentive for purchasing the album; all proceeds are donated to the Knickerbocker Music Center, a non-profit school located in Westerly, Rhode Island, which provides instructional training in blues and jazz.
