New Guitar Album of the week: Guitar Shorty - Bare Knuckle

One day I was lucky to be at a blues jam session at The Yale blues bar in Vancouver, when Guitar Shorty showed up and played a set. What a treat! Needless to say I've been a fan ever since, so I am so excited about this week's release of Guitar Shorty's latest album: Bare Knuckle.

He has everything anyone could expect from a blues guitar legend: great voice, great tone, soulful playing. At times his playing reminds me of Buddy Guy, but obviously he has his own voice and style.


 
This album is preceded by the acclaimed We the People, which was released in 2006. I have heard two tracks in his MySpace page and can't wait for the album to hit the stores in Canada. 



Enjoy!
