Dust My Blues
One of the most satisfying, yet relatively unknown electric blues guitarists
on the scene today, Garth Webber, has released his debut, "Get
A Grip On The Blues" (Blue Rock'It, Redwood Valley, CA) and it's
a winner. In the past, Webber has played with the likes of Miles Davis,
John Lee Hooker, Boz Scaggs and Bob Weir and Kingfish, among others.
Here he steps out on some high-energy originals, like the shuffle "You're
A Bad One," the cajun-influenced "The Bayou" and a couple
of tasty classics like Muddy Waters' "40 Days and 40 Nights"
to showcase his deft guitar work and spirited vocals. If you're a fan
of Robert Cray's early records or if you like your blues big and bold
with a good helping of shiny, tasteful guitar, "Get A Grip On The
Blues" will definitely be right up your alley...
