Product description

Product Description

Combining three-finger chords while simultaneously playing slide and adding finger parts, fingerpicking and other dexterous right-hand flourishes, Sonny has developed a unique, mind-blowing approach to playing guitar. Guitar harmonics and shimmering sustains give Sonny his phantasmal, hypnotic tone. His Louisiana background has also infused his work with a swamp-rock vibe. In a nutshell, nobody sounds (or could even sound) like Sonny Landreth. "The Road We're On" rocks harder than his last album and it is clear that new inspiration must've struck down like lightning and reinvigorated Sonny. This is a perfect album for anyone who feels an adrenaline rush when they hear a tube amp switched on, turned up until it hisses, and then begins to growl once a nasty guitar tone takes a bite out of the still air."Bayou - blues slide shaman…With his searing tone, bone rattling grooves, and beyond-the-blues melodic excursions, Sonny pushes the boundries of slide guitar" - Guitar Player.

Amazon.co.uk

Sonny Landreth's 10-year career as a leader has always seemed tenuous, because he's a one-dimensional singer and only an adequate songwriter. But the 12 numbers on The Road We're On run deeper than his previous recordings. Like much of his catalogue, they straddle the worlds of blues, cajun, zydeco and New Orleans party music, but the blues dominates. And that gives the conflagrant Mississippi-born and Louisiana-raised slide guitarist plenty of fuel. So he burns liberally at every turn, from the acoustic resonator guitar that opens and closes the disc to the percolating funk of "Hell at Home" and the Allmans-like, riff-driven intensity of "Fallin' for You". "A World Away" is this album's tour de force, with Landreth summoning soul from the seldom-used soft side of his voice and slow, moaning guitar lines, whose steel-on-steel cries echo the resigned heartbreak of the lyrics. The album's sterling production puts Landreth's guitar front and centre, which reaffirms the instrumental mastery of this former John Hiatt and Clifton Chenier sideman. --Ted Drozdowski
