Clapton is back with a collection that touches on everything from century-old traditional brass bands to little-known country blues to brand-new originals.
Following his sell-out UK & European tour in 2010, and 2009s UK top ten album Still So Far To Go - The Best Of Chris Rea, one of the UKs foremost singer-songwriters returns with his first new material in over ten years. The elaborate three-CD and two-DVD The Santo Spirito Project includes a brand new studio album, featuring "Dancing My Blues Away", "Never Tie Me Down", "The Chance Of Love", "Rock & Roll Tonight", "Electric Guitar" and "The Last Open Road".
Additionally, The Santo Spirito Project features two bespoke feature films on DVD, written and directed by Chris. The first feature is a raw and brutally honest chronicle on bullfighting, featuring neo-classical and Spanish-themed gypsy music. The second feature follows a man on a search for the truth in the city of Florence, a journey he may or may not wish he began. The soundtrack for both films is featured on two CDs. Here, Chris explains his rationale for such an ambitious project:
Young crooner Michael Bubledelivers an album of love songs as powerful as chocolate and candlelight. From covers such as Ray Charles' "You Don't Know Me" to "Home," penned by Buble and Amy Foster-Gillies, the album is a romantic treat. With total sales of his CDs and DVDs in the U.S. well over 1 million units, plus glowing reviews and standing ovations everywhere, Buble is set for an even bigger and better year.
The Mexican guitar wizard, famed for his fusion of Salsa, Rock, Jazz and Blues, recorded live at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2004.
Haunting, hypnotic grooves from iconoclastic trance bluesman Otis Taylor. 'Otis Taylor's Contraband' offers 14 compelling originals, the subject matter of them will be familiar to his fans as he sings of love, social injustices, personal demons and war. Otis Taylor isn't defined by any single category. A musical alchemist and a true innovator, Taylor has never been afraid to experiment beyond the blues tradition. He's a master craftsman who has created his own signature "trance blues" style by melding haunting guitar and banjo work, syncopated rhythms and a combination of gruff vocals, shouts and yells with raw passion. "When I sing, I just do what I do," Taylor explains. "Whatever comes out that's the way I leave it. And if I make a mistake, I leave it in. I like to keep the emotion." Otis Taylor's Contraband is evidence of that. On his latest album Otis is reunited with several longtime collaborators including the supple-toned Ron Miles on cornet, pedal steel guitarist Chuck Campbell from American Sacred Steel gospel group The Campbell Brothers, djembe player Fara Tolno, a master drummer born in Guinea, West Africa, fiddler Anne Harris from Chicago, IL and the Sheryl Renee Choir. Bass is handled by Taylor's daughter Cassie and Todd Edmunds. Rounding out the band are Jon Paul Johnson on guitar, Brian Juan on organ, and Larry Thompson, former house drummer for Colorado's world-renowned Caribou Ranch recording studio.
Live performance from the New Orleans 'voodoo' blues pianist, recorded at the Montreux Jazz festival in 1995 and featuring classic tracks such as 'Iko Iko' and 'Right Place, Wrong Time'.
