Product Description

Product Description

"Schofield has been hailed as one of the finest guitarists of his generation. Informed commentators rank him as the best British-born blues guitarist since the Brit heroes of the sixties.

With this latest cut Schofield takes on the challenge of a more diverse palate of songs, fitting his stellar guitar playing into new frameworks. The end result is an exciting and contemporary fusion of blues, funk, jazz and rock that is undoubtedly Schofield's best work to date.

Recorded in New Orleans, the album has the funky edge that both N'orleans and Schofield's trio are renowned for; but the trip to New Orleans was more about working with producer John Porter, long admired by Schofield for his work with BB King, Buddy Guy, Santana and many others, and which have netted ten Grammy awards."

Review

Astonishing. -- Guitar & Bass UK, July 2011

No longer just a guitarist to keep an eye out for, Schofield has arrived, and Anything But Time cements his status as an important contemporary bluesman. -- Premier Guitar, USA, July 2011

Sure to be in any discussion of best blues album of the year. -- Boston Herald

Since emerging on the British blues scene 7 years ago, Matt Schofield has never ceased to amaze his audience and with the release of `Heads, Tails & Aces' in 2009, he finally received the recognition he truly deserves being awarded 'Best British Blues Guitarist' and 'Best British Blues Album' at the 2010 British Blues Awards. After embarking on his first US tour last year, Matt Schofield has been taking his music to the world playing concerts in Canada, Europe and Asia where he also jammed alongside Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang and Shemekia Copeland at the Mumbai Blues Festival in India.

Matt Schofield is once again at his compelling best playing guitar & vocals on 'Anything But Time' released this month by Nugene Records, that features new drummer Kevin Hayes (ex Robert Cray Band) along with regular stalwart and keyboard wizard Jonny Henderson, who unconventionally also plays bass on keys and was voted 'Best British Keyboard Player' at the 2010 British Blues Awards. Produced by John Porter and recorded in New Orleans, three of the ten tracks also include special guest Jon Cleary on keys to add that distinct New Orleans feel to proceedings. All but two of the songs on 'Anything But Time' are co-written with Dorothy Whittick, leaving renditions of Steve Winwood's 'At Times We Do Forget' and Albert King's 'Wrapped Up In Your Love' to acknowledge some of his influences. 'The opening title track `Anything But Time' puts you straight in the groove and there is plenty to admire here from the slow burning 'See Me Through' to the blues driven 'Where Do I Have To Stand' and 'Don't Know What I'd Do', although the inclusion of the rap tinged 'One Look (And I'm Hooked) was perhaps a little surprising?

I really like matt and have most of his albums so its hard for me to be negative towards him, but I'll have to be slightly I'm afraid.
This was blues album 2011 and therefore I expected a bit more really. After a few plays its of course extremely competent and has the brilliant Mr Henderson on it but I wasn't blown away.
The Hendrix influenced track doesn't have strong enough vocals on it for me and the King track lacks his polish somehow.
I find most of the songs lack in either the writing, vocals or just what I would call oomph.
I reluctantly have to say overall its a decent album with some good songs that doesn't quite do it for me and lacks a little something.
I'm sorry if this sounds a bit negative but its not terrible, after all I have given it 4 stars its just not quite brilliant yet after half a dozen plays.
Maybe it will be in time?

Great collection of songs showing off Matt's considerable guitar skills,there always seems to crop up a few negative reviews for Matt's albums that absolutely mystify me i have seen him live and believe me he is an incredibly accomplished guitarist and the majority of his songs are his own compositions only ever has a couple of covers on his albums and even then he makes them completely his own, i suspect there are a couple of old codgers out there who feel a tinge of jealousy towards Matt and feel their beloved guitar heroes are somehow being threatened by a contemporary bluesman like Matt in fact the only difference between him and Joe Bonamassa is i can see him for £17:50 instead of £500!(and yes he is just as good and even more inventive!)

I won't go into any detail like other reviewers. I have all Matt's records and this one is still more impressive, fun, interesting, and surprising than the others. "Surprising" because I did not expect him to continue raising his level of guitar playing and singing, which seemed to be right at the top on the previous album already. Matt should become a legend, he has the right stuff, and he belongs the club of the greats.
Get this asap, PLUS all his other Cd's. MUST HAVE.

Matt Schoifield is the best blues rooted guitarist Britain has ever produced, and having seen him several times over recent years that again and again is confirmed.I saw his recent tour in UK promoting this new album and he was better than ever.Alongside keyboard king Jonnie Henderson and drummer Kevin Hayes (ex Robert Cray and a host of other blues big names to his CV0, Matt has brought to us an album superbly played throughout,his playing and vocals are excellent throughout.As he said playing and recording in New Orleans a city that lives and breathes music brought a vibe to his time there to produce surely the years best blues album by quite some distance, produced by one of the best producers there is and add piano ew Orleans based Jon Cleary and a whole album of original songs plus one cover as Matt always does on his albums.Following his short UK tour he's got forty plus dates in the USA before co-headlining the North Sea Festival with the likes of BB King,Paul Simon and Tom Jones.Tat's how good he is.He will before long be filling arena's around the world,so although I've not mentioned particular tracks because throughout the songs are of the highest quality and equally enjoyable.Do get to hear this amazing set because this is one stunningly talented artist that is gonna take some beating for the next several years.Already my blues album of ther year,better still album of the year in modern music.
