Release Info: Eugenio Finardi - Anima Blues
Eugenio Finardi, the son of an Italian recording engineer and an American opera singer, is a star in Italy. "Anima Blues," released in 2005, is good enough to make him a star in the States too, at least among blues aficionados.
On a myspace site dedicated to the project, Finardi says the group formed for fun and planned to play just three gigs. Then he heard the magic.
The music's spiritual, soulful, sassy ... take your pick. Mostly, it's just great blues.
