TEXAS BLUES AND FUNK BY ONE GREAT ARTIST !,
This review is from: Give It Back (Audio CD)
I've seen and enjoyed Hamilton Loomis several times, bought the albums and live DVD, but this time he's really hit the bullseye with a cracker of a release. He has a fine voice, a truly top guitar player, and leads a great band, which on tghthis album includes UK drummer Jamie Little (seen some of the big tours by top artist you've more than likely seen him playing the arena's).
The songs here in the main he's been playing on tour the last couple of years, he's honed them to create on record his superb live sound but with a few additions like backing vocalists on a couple of the songs.
The music throughout is that mixture of blues, funk, soul and a sound thats outside the normal bliues box, music to move your feet to, choruses you soon join in on (go to a live show he encourages it). A major album from a major blues talent, all the way from Fort Worth ,Texas,a dozen songs, all new,all very good indeed, by aan man that leant much from Bo Diddley.
Listen to songs like Eternally, see him live, get his, Live In The Uk album, and your onto one of the most talented and likable young men around today. Want an album of slow 12 bar blues, forget it that's not Hamilton Loomis, he puts the temperature and his music sizzles, 21st Century Blues / just a really fine , and hugely enjoyable set to lioft the spirits. One of the best blues based releases of the year !
