Earlier this year I was surfing on Youtube and my ears felt directly in love when I heard guitarist Mark Mumea from the Westcoast of the U.S. Don’t let “Westcoast” confuse you because what Mumea brings is pure 40’s50’s Chicago Blues. I asked him if he recorded any albums so he told me about histhem upcoming disc on Devil’s Tale Music “Back To Chicago”. At first they wanted to make a reunion album for three members from the L.A Dukes from the70’s80’s (Mark Bukich, Mark Mumea and Bob Newham) and singerharp player Johnny Dyer. Well, they even made it better! Two other guys I saw on Youtube joined them on this terrific set, guitarist Fredrik Zahl Marken and piano player Oyvind Stolefjell, both from Norway! Old classics from Little Walter, Robert Nighthawk and Muddy, to name a few, with really that typical 40’s50’s sound by using small vintage tube amps and mics gives you the feeling of the southside of Chicago!

Johnny Dyer sings on 4 tracks but Mark Bukich blows harmonica this time. Of course also with that fantastic old school sound.

thank you marc.
