Svelte stylistic guitar blues Grant Geissman – Blooz

Svelte stylistic guitar blues Grant Geissman – BLOOZ:   This is my first audience for Grant’s svelte stylistic guitar blues compositions and performances… before we even get started, I (most strongly) recommend that you watch this in-depth interview about the album…

You’ll also find quite a few older videos when you SUBSCRIBE to Grant’s channel on YouTube… I did it because the performances there show a lot about his style and talent.

Grant composed the dozen tunes on the album, and his fantastic guitar work is complemented perfectly by special guests like Randy Brecker, Tom Scott, David Garfield, Russell Ferrante, Josh Smith, Joe Bonamassa, Robben Ford, and John Jorgenson… as you listen to the funky groove on “Robben’s Hood with Robben Ford“, featuring Robben, you’ll realize why I believe this song will be getting a LOT of airplay on stations of all types around the globe!

You’ll almost think you’re “in church” as you listen to the stellar opening track, “Preach“, with Randy Brecker’s horn to amplify that vibe… there’s some excellent organ work on this tune, too.

Carlos En Siete” (Charles In Seven), with a splendid piano solo from David Garfield, will hit that sweet “Santana spot” for you… it’s the perfect length for airplay, at 4:46, and I predict it will be on a LOT of playlists over the next few years!

I was so impressed with “One G and Two J’s“, featuring Josh Smith and Joe Bonamassa, that it immediately became my choice for personal favorite of the twelve tantalizing bluesy tunes… superb recording and high-energy playing will keep you in the groove for hours at a time.

Grant and all his players get a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this excellent album.  Get more information on Grant’s website.                        Rotcod Zzaj
