Description

For 15 years, Altered Five Blues Band has been winning audiences with a swaggering stomp of bruising, barrel house grit. According to Downbeat magazine, frontman Jeff Taylor sings powerfully and Jeff Schroedls live-wire guitar reaches the high bar of mixed invention and fluidity Blues Bytes magazine declares the group features the funkiest rhythm section outside of Memphis. For its fourth album, Charmed & Dangerous, the Milwaukee based quintet joins forces with Blind Pig Records, one of the worlds premiere blues labels. Produced by multi-Grammy winner Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy, Susan Tedeschi, Johnny Winter,etc.), and featuring guests on harmonica and backing vocals, the 13 tracks of original, contemporary blues deliver a fiery mix of deft songwriting and simmering musicianship Taylors smoldering baritone howls in the opening title track, and breaths fire-and brimstone on cuts like On My Listto Quit and Three Alarm Desire. The soul drenched Eighth Wonder and scrapyard shuffle Mint Condition showcase A5s songcraft, while Cookin in Your Kitchen and If Your Heart Went Public prove you can still rattle the rafters with pure, stone-cold slow blues. The albums third track, Three Forks, was penned about legendary Delta bluesman Robert Johnson and features music, adapted with permission, from the classic cut Crossroads.
