Joe Bonamassa talks about his "Black Rock" album


A child prodigy, Bonamassa was finessing Stevie Ray Vaughan licks when he was seven and by the time he was ten, had caught B.B. King’s ear. After first hearing him play, King said, “This kid's potential is unbelievable. He hasn't even begun to scratch the surface. He's one of a kind.” By age 12, Bonamassa was opening shows for the blues icon and went on to tour ... Read more in Amazon's Joe Bonamassa Store

Product Description

GRAMMY-nominated guitar superstar Joe Bonamassa releases his first studio album since 2012 and the first album of his career to feature all original material. The result is a record with more of an experimental edge than previous Bonamassa records. It’s a blues record that explores the outer reaches and the many different sounds that shape the genre.

“It’s been a while since I’ve been involved in the writing on an entire album. So I decided I wanted to make a completely original blues album,” said Bonamassa. “I’ve really had to push myself to make everything I do better than the last project. I know the fans expect it. And I feel like I owe it to the fans to give them an original record after all these years.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome return to form 23 Sep 2014
Format:Audio CD
I have been an avid collector of JB's material for some years now and have to say I found the more recent solo releases a tad boring. Not bad, just a bit predictable and "safe". This album (I have only heard the download version so can't comment on packaging) helps dispel any doubts I may have had. From the Zeppelin-esque "Oh Beautiful" through the funky "Living on the moon" to the more traditional slow blues of "So what would I do" Bonamassa shows a grasp of the many and various forms of the blues which after all is what the album title suggests. His guitar playing in all styles is immaculate and I have to say his voice has acquired a timbre and soulfulness that I haven't heard before. Backed up by an excellent core of players - the horn section especially works well - JB has returned with a fine record, up there with his best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adding More Than One Colour... 22 Sep 2014
By R. Muir
Format:Audio CD
Since establishing himself as a premier blues rock live performer with a solid run of studio releases behind him Joe Bonamassa has been the model of consistency.

Live, there is no questioning the American guitarist's six-string talents and his solo albums, including the excellent Sloe Gin and The Ballad of John Henry, have always featured a covered blues classic or five as well as a smattering of top-line, original material.

Different Shades of Blue however brings more to the table than any previous Joe Bonamassa release because it breaks that old, new and borrowed blues mould.

Other than a shortened instrumental take on the Jimi Hendrix number 'Hey Baby (New Rising Sun),' Bonamassa's eleventh studio offering contains nothing but all-new material and each and every song stands strong.
There are a number of colours, not just shades, to this album's palette including trademark Bonamassa blues rock, a little blues funk and a few musical statements that give a nod to the guitarist's British & Irish blues and rock guitar influences.

Prior to the album's release Bonamassa stated that he felt he owed it to the fans after ten albums and fourteen years to deliver an album's worth of all-new tunes.
Perhaps, but quite frankly he also owed it to himself - it was high time Joe Bonamassa showcased those highly respected and in demand blues rock talents with an album of all-original material.

Different Shades of Blue is not just that album; it's also Joe Bonamassa's best solo offering to date.

That statement of intent to deliver is made early, and in some style.
'Hey Baby (New Rising Sun)' heralds the arrival of 'Oh Beautiful,' one of Bonamassa's most powerful songs.

Bit disappointed, Joe is so much better playing raw blues with great riffs. It doesn't happen with this album

Big fan of Joe Bonamassa and was eagerly awaiting this album - I saw him live in Amsterdam last year and he was truly excellent. He is, however, clearly a better performer than he is a writer. If this is an experiment for him then good and well - but, as in the words of a famous song "....they don't give a damn about any trumpet playing band, it ain't what they call Rock and Roll....".
Sometimes these things take a little time to get into, and I confess that I feel better disposed to it now than after my first listen but I don't foresee a moment of realisation in my future. Maybe if I listen with a Sloe Gin in my hand.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Blue Blue Soul 28 Sep 2014
Format:Audio CD
What can i say the first time i heard about J.B. was on line about 5 years ago, and one of the first albums i saw was the Sloe Gin.
It all began on the computer where you can listen to any song via you tube. One of the first songs i had ever heard was the title
track and have been a huge fan since. To my surprise as i live in Australia, i suggested to some friends to have a listen, and one of the
biggest surprises i made a couple of comments, wouldn't it be amazing if he toured Australia and within a few months time, i was literally blown away by his killer live concert in a small pub with around 400 people, 135 minutes of pure energy. Once again he toured Australia 19th Of September and this was tour number 4, as you can tell i am a huge fan. From my perspective it seems every new release seems to be getting better and better, and with "Different Shades Of Blue" he has once again outdone himself, brilliant. My
only complaint after i bought the album i found out, there are 3 editions, one with lyrics, the above edition with the 65 page book,and
number 3, which i found out after i bought the album an additional 3 tracks i was a little annoyed after the fact, but once again what can you do, so i decided oh well may as well buy a 2nd one hmm!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceedingly Brilliant 24 Sep 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well worth the wait. Right then, this is just FANTASTIC. Mr Bonamassa vocals improve by every album. He is a real singer, he doesn't do false vibratos and 'breathlessness' for the sake of it. His vocals are passionate. His virtuosity on the guitar is still unbelievable. Everything that he does is done with so much passion and feel. Joe Bonamassa is a true great in every sense. His band members mustn't be forgotten as well. They are a very tight and amazingly accomplished set of musicians. I can't wait for the next offering from this truly fantastic musician.
