Description

Guitarist Jeff Healey is releasing his first blues-rock album in eight years.
The album was recorded late last year, with the musicians who regularly accompany the guitarist at Jeff Healey's Roadhouse in Toronto. While most of the album was recorded in the studio, two tracks were in fact recorded live at the club, and two more cut at a concert in London, England. The guitarist calls his group "the best damned bar band in Canada" and it consists of Dave Murphy on keyboards (he also sings on two cuts), bassist Alec Fraser (who co-produced the record with Healey), Dan Noordermeer on guitar and Al Webster on drums.

"Making this record is a chance to introduce the band to wider international audiences and give some great songs a new and fresh lease on life," says Healey. Choosing the songs for the album was easy, he says. "For the most part they're tunes that get the best response when we play them live, either on tour or at home in the club". Classics like "The Weight", "Jambalaya", "How Blue Can You Get" and "Shake Rattle And Roll" are all marked by Healey's innovative and sparkling guitar work.
