Curley Bridges – Mr. Rock’n’Soul
It is a pure pleasure to unleash Curley Bridges’ new CD "Mr Rock ‘n’ Soul" to blues lovers worldwide. Here at Electro-Fi we feel that this new release even surpasses Curley’s magnificent debut "Key’s to the Blues" (E-fi3358) which was selected "Album of the Month" by Britains prestigious Blues & Rhythm magazine.Piano powerhouse CURLEY BRIDGES was out there playing Rock and Roll before they called it Rock and Roll. Today, nearly fifty years later, he’s still got what it takes, combining a rich and powerful voice with unmatched keyboard expertise. On "Mr Rock ‘n’ Soul" Curley is backed by an All-Star band featuring special guest CHRIS WHITELEY of The Whiteley Brothers fame on harp, trumpet and guitar, with PAT CAREY from the Downchild Blues Band playing superb saxophone. BUCKY BERGER on drums, DAN WHITELEY on guitar and VICTOR BATEMAN on acoustic bass round out this truly exceptional ensemble.
Now with the release of "Mr Rock ‘n’ Soul" Curley showcases his immense talent on both his original title track, a slice of musical molten lava, and on a great assortment of jumpin’ blues material done up Curley Bridges style!
