Note: Fillmore Slim has been playing the blues all his life and has become synonymous with the "playa" lifestyle. He is one of the special lights of the blues world today combining humor, slang, street wisdom, blues idioms and solid songwriting into his special motif. The Legend Of was recorded in Oakland and it brings all the power of Slim's writing and spoken magic to the front. The song "Hey Little Brother" examines the inner city youth/handgun epidemic from many different viewpoints. The combination of rap and blues is once again explored by Fillmore and his son Frank Sticks. This album's line-up includes Frank Goldwasser and Leonard Gil (bass and lead guitar), John Haines (drums), Bobby Webb (sax), Jimmy Pugh (keyboards) and Rick Estrin (harmonica).
I stumbled across this recording, as one often does, completely by accident. What a great accident! I keep returning to this recoding as one of a few truly exciting Contemporary Blues recordings in the last few years; traditional enough that it's still the blues, but with a sensibility that leaves no mistake that this is the 21st Century. Every track is great, with a few really great standouts: The Legend Of Fillmore Slim, Hey Little Brother, My Friend Blue, and Blues From The Heart. So what are you waiting for? Go, grab it now.
