Excellent, long out of print, debut studio disc by outstanding blues/rock guitarist Chris Aaron featuring 11 songs (51 minutes) of superb, top-shelf, amazingly solid blues/rock riffage that stands tall with the best of them. A dynamic, diverse, mature blues/rock heavy guitar disc full of depth, soul and blues power. Includes an awesome unreleased Bonus Track with Corey Sterling (Kenny Wayne Shepherd) on vocals. Born With the Blues is an awesome blues/rock guitar disc that is highly recommended to fans of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Robin Trower, Indigenous, Walter Trout, Chris Duarte, Joe Bonamassa, Buddaheads, Craig Erickson, Tony Spinner, Scarlet Runner, Philip Sayce and other outstanding blues/rock axeslingers who know what time of day it is when it comes down to serious bluesy heavy guitar music.
“Avenging Angel” is Craig Taborn’s distinguished contribution to the great solo piano tradition at ECM, a powerful, purposeful and rigorous album, which rises to the challenges of the format and transcends them. The disc explores the textural dimensions of sound, builds new structures, uncovers a rugged lyricism. Recorded in the optimal acoustics of the recital room at Lugano’s Studio RSI, with Manfred Eicher producing, it’s Taborn’s first disc under his own name for ECM, following on from inspired sessions with Roscoe Mitchell, Evan Parker, David Torn and Michael Formanek.
