Knockin' Around These Blu


The blues roads of John Primer and Bob Corritore have been running parallel for so long, it was almost inevitable that they would eventually join forces in a musical collaboration. Both men are deeply rooted in the classic Chicago blues tradition, so it was only a matter of time before they collaborated. The only surprise is that it took them until 2012! But the resulting CD was well worth the wait, and has brought out the best in both artists. Primer digs deep into the raw and heavy sound that he started out playing with the veterans of Chicago's South Side blues scene. Corritore's harp wails and moans with echoes of Little Walter, Junior Wells and James Cotton, while still sounding unmistakably like his own man. The session covers material meticulously selected from the songbooks of such Windy City blues icons as Little Walter, Robert Lockwood, Jr., Willie Dixon and Jimmy Reed, in addition to Texas bluesman Lightnin' Hopkins, among several others, and features a crack team assembly of A-list players that includes guitarists Billy Flynn and Chris James, pianist Barrelhouse Chuck, bassists Bob Stroger and Patrick Rynn, as well as Kenny "Beedy Eyes" Smith and Brian Fahey on drums. The result is one of the most consistently satisfying traditional-style blues releases since the heyday of Chicago blues. So put it on, turn it up, and enjoy the sounds of these two consummate pros 'Knockin' Around These Blues!'
