Keith Dunn - Alone with the Blues

Alone with the blues... That says it all ! Harmonica, vocals, and most of all, some good blues !

This atmospheric album features a wide range of blues music. A testimony of Keith's first hearing of Sonny Boy Williamson and the famous Buddy Guy and Junior Wells duo. Later his musical career which got him to meet B B King, Joe Louis Walker, Big Walter Horton, James Cotton and others also forged his sound. With a warm voice, Keith sings and plays gospel (A Feeling Called the Blues), work song (Geronimo), a tribute to the mentor of us all Sonny Boy Williamson (Bring it on Home), a minor blues (Trouble is going on) , a superb composition done a capella (Kool Struttin’) and more besides...

Beware ! A big harp sound can hide another big harp sound ! The first piece "Strange things are happening", uses a harp amplified through an Astatic/Fender Champ combination which projects the harmonica through your speakers. The sound is present, slightly overdriven, with a somewhate brassy tint that instantly grabs you into the album. The second piece is just as surprising : "Need to make a Dollar" is played acoustic, and that sound is... just as deep, warm and very expressive. Each track is a joy, because of Keith's voice, harp playing and most of all his musicality.

"Alone with the blues" is a magical meeting with a man who sings and plays the blues...
