Product Description

Product Description

Bluesman and songwriter Otis Taylor has become famous as the architect of a uniquely sparse and hypnotic style that has become known as "trance blues". Joining him on 'Clovis People, Vol 3' are guitarist Gary Moore on a couple of tracks and pedal steel player Chuck Campbell, a member of the Campbell Brothers, as well as regular collaborators Ron Miles on cornet and daughter Cassie on bass and vocals.

This is Otis Taylor's seventh release on Telarc Blues and with each new recording he continues his experiments with different sounds, this time adding new elements such as the theremin, organ, violin and cello which are interspersed throughout the album. Inspired to re-visit some of his own early compositions by the discovery near his home of the 13,000 year-old remains of the Clovis civilisation they have been transformed with new arrangements. Also included are previously unrecorded compositions which have been hidden at the bottom of a drawer waiting for the right opportunity to be unveiled.

Otis Taylor is one of the leading interpreter's of contemporary blues and has a large following in the UK having supported guitarist Gary Moore on a number of UK tours.

Personnel: Otis Taylor (guitars, vocals), Gary Moore (guitar, tracks 3,6,9), Chuck Campbell (pedal steel guitar), Cassie Taylor (bass, vocals, theremin), Ron Miles (cornet), Larry Thompson (drums), Valerie Franzese (cello), Brian Juan (organ), Fara Tolo (djembe) and others

Review

(4 stars) Thoroughly modern and uncliched...Taylor's grizzled voice is alternately menacing and lovelorn. The man is a true one-off. -- The Sunday Times, (Clive Davis), May 30, 2010

(5 stars - Instant MOJO Classic) The stark blues truth deftly and simply delivered...Taylor creates unbelievable excitement...proves utterly irresistible. -- MOJO, (Fred Dellar), August 2010

The Colorado bluesman continues to cut a singular, fertile path...he returns to the rugged, electric style...Compelling stuff. -- The Observer, (Neil Spencer), May 23, 2010
