5.0 out of 5 stars With a talent like this why be blue!, 30 April 2006
This review is from: Blues Reflex (Audio CD)
By mixturing himself playing a variety of intruments, but in particlar the National Steel guitar, Bob creates an incredible album which reflect influences from around the world. At the same time he captures the good humoured modesty which he brings to live performance. Bob is probably the only other guitarist who Bob could play with to create an album like this. That being said don't miss him with Woody Mann or on 'The Music of the Volcanoes' or anyone else he's on album with - in fact don't miss him at all if you ever get a chance to see him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Resonator Blues, 21 July 2008
This review is from: Blues Reflex (Audio CD)
If your a guitar player buy this. There are many licks on here that are true genius and the tone he gets out of those National Resonators is sublime - I've bought a few Brozman albums recently and this is the one where he's at his creative best and most free. It's the closest to seeing him live (other than the 'Live Now' album also recommended)
You can hear all his influences here, the styles of Robert Johnson and Charley Patton are brilliantly and lovingly portrayed but you can also hear the influence of his more recent collaborators such as Rene Lacaille and Debhashish Bhattacharya. The overall sound is of all these guys jamming and having the time of their lives.

The only negative is that the singing is a little wayward in places (like other Brozman Records - and also like those old 30's recordings) However, in other places the vocals are among his best.

Brozman is a true student of his art - for me, one of the most interesting things about his music is being able to hear development in his playing on each record.

Make this one of your first three Brozman puchases - also get 'Devils Slide' and 'Lumiere'
