Barry Levenson: "The Late Show"

"Barry Levenson is a talent to keep watching in the blues scene. Versatile as a solo artist and as a member of the popular band, Canned Heat, Levenson never seems to stop moving. His music can be heard in commercials, and he can be found behind the scenes in the studio when he isn’t on tour making audible magic wherever he goes. This album had a good blend of instrumental and vocalized tracks. It captured the heat of a summer day, gave tribute to a blues great, and leads us out of a late night and into the early morning darkness and all the possibility of what the night still holds, among other blues adventures for your listening pleasure. This album is electric fire and worth a listen. It will be smoking in my playlist for a long time to come."

Arthur Adams: "Stomp The Floor"
"Veteran soul singer Arthur Adams has been plying his trade at B.B. King's nightclub in Los Angeles for many years, but has been in and out of the national spotlight since the disco days of the late '70s. Fans may remember his all-star-laden 1979 A&M label classic I Love Love Love My Lady. Stomp the Floor -- only his seventh album -- bears the slight visage of those dance craze days, but concentrates more on the sweetness and light of his voice, somewhat dipping into the blues, and presenting some new themes and old sentiments. Adams is not so much slick as solid, plays the bulk of the guitar licks, and takes on main man duties as composer and arranger while singing with a minimal complement of bandmates, including seasoned veterans like the great drummer James Gadson and bassist Reggie McBride."
