Levenson: "The Late Show"
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."

Adams: "Stomp The Floor"
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."
