Product Description

Review

Micki Free, is a multi-talented maker of mad machinations in a most mesmerizing manner. --The Rev. Billy F. Gibbons, ZZ Top

Jimi Hendrix rides again! --Bill Wyman (who performs with Micki on a version of Red House on the album)

Micki Free is not a Jimi Hendrix impersonator, but a Jimi Hendrix innovator --Gene Simmons

CD Description

Originally discovered by Gene Simmons of KISS, Grammy Award Winner & Multi-Native American Music award winning artist Micki Free is no stranger to success. His rich musical history includes his career in Shalamar, his collaboration with Jean Beauvoir in cult AOR legends Crown of Thorns and embracing his Cherokee & Comanche descent - creating Native American flute music. As a rock & blues solo artist Micki has also enjoyed international acclaim, regularly playing the Hard Rock Calling festival in London s Hyde Park & working with some of rock & pops greatest luminaries (including Prince, Janet Jackson, Wendy O Williams, Gene Simmons & Paul Stanley of KISS, Billy Gibbons & Bill Wyman) to name a few. Chances are you will have heard Micki Free play guitar before. A major player on the music scene, he is rightly known as a guitarist extraordinaire. A guitar hero in the genuine and most traditional sense of the word, Free is bleeding on six strings rather than propped-up by technical wizardry. Micki s sound is about feeling the groove, soaking up musical influences & channelling them with the deft touch of his own unique flare. Tattoo Burn, Micki s latest blues-rock release on Cargo Records, has all the swagger you would expect; from the hard rocking, riff laden Hole in the Heart of the Blues to the traditional Greens & Barbecue . I m not into guitar technique and/or speed. I am a simple "blues-rock inspired guitarist", influenced by the greats that came before me; Muddy Waters, Albert King, John Lee Hooker, Billy Gibbons and Jimi Hendrix to name a few. I am only interested in the outcome of my guitar playing in connection with my songwriting or a good "free form jam"....did it move my audience and listeners, did we connect on the level of music -Micki Free

3.0 out of 5 stars AOR legend done got the blues 8 Jun 2012
By Mr. H TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:MP3 Download
Once upon a time, Native American guitarist Micki Free widdled his way through some storming AOR as a member of Crown Of Thorns, a band I saw put on some cracking live shows. But these days he's plying his trade in the world of blues-rock. It's a world away from backing the likes of Prince and Janet Jackson, but this is obviously what stirs his blood.

Now, there is no denying that Mr Free is a really talented guitarist. He wouldn't have been hired be the likes of Gene Simmons and Bill Wyman if he couldn't strum a chord or two. However, with his own band he also takes care of the vocals, and no-one is going to claim that singing is his forte. And it's something that does tarnish what is a good set of blues rock tunes. That and the drum programming. I know you've got to save the pennies these days, but it doesn't really work with the blues.

But let's look at the good stuff. There are some sweet tunes here with 'Co-Co Gin', 'Hole In The Heart Of The Blues' and 'Greens and Barbeque', the best of the bunch. Some folks say he's following in the footsteps of Hendrix, something I don't get myself, but he certainly plays up to the comparison with a live version of 'Red House' (featuring former Rolling Stone Bill Wyman) and a 17 minute version of Hendrix's 'Voodoo Chile Blues', which overstays its welcome so much, I had to nip off to the locksmith to get the locks changed in case it came back.

It's a good album, but the guitar paying outweighs everything else by a mile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great unknown guitarist! 10 April 2012
Format:Audio CD
Anyone heard of Micki Free...probably not,in fact i hadn't until his previous c.d. But he's been around for years and was at one time in Shalamar! Anyway,i downloaded his new album today,and i'm mighty impressed. His last one,American horse was very good...but this is(in my opinion)brilliant. If you have any love for guitar,give it a listen 'cos he has such a great tone and to me sounds a lot like early Billy Gibbons! There are a couple of long tracks,but i like them as well...so do yourelf a favour and investigate it,you never know you might like it!
