Description

On 'Twisted Blues Volume 2', innovative guitarist Oz Noy continues to mine the blues-tinted vain first tapped in the widely acclaimed first volume, which was released in 2011. These Invigorating groove-driven explorations feature jazz great Chick Corea, guitar icon Eric Johnson, Crescent City master Allen Toussaint, maverick organist John Medeski, and Warren Haynes of Gov't Mule and the Allman Brothers.

Among the featured rhythm section players are bassist Will Lee (of Late Show with David Letterman fame), drummer Chris Layton (of Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble), master contemporary jazz drummers Dave Weckl and Keith Carlock, and veteran blues-rock bassist Roscoe Beck. The universal yet infinitely malleable feeling of the blues provided instant common ground amongst the musicians, while Noy puts his own distinct stamp on the proceedings both via his searing fretwork and his deft touch as a composer.

"I don't like complicated music", Noy explains, acknowledging the directness and accessibility of his sound. "People sometimes think my music is more difficult then it really is because there are some twists and turns in my writing. But in reality, the improvisation is always on straight R&B or blues grooves. To me, blues and bebop are the glue to good music."
