Well here we are in week three of the ‘Chef Suggestions & Tasty Additions’ list and holy moly has it been well received beyond our greatest expectations.
This week we see another lady on top of the chart with Sena Ehrhardt’s “All In” followed by Bob Corritore/John Primer, and James Cotton. not a bad top three! In the ‘Tasty Additions’ section we see six new additions to the family chart. Ranging from such familair names as Roomful of Blues, The Rusty Wright Band and Omar (Kent) Dykes to newer artists such as Marshall Lawrence, Dana Fuchs and Dayna Kurtz. Each of these artists brings their own spin and feel to the blues and I hope you give them a listen.
We have one other ‘Tasty Addition’ - Ken Valdez & The River City Renegades who bring us a tribute EP of T-Model Ford’s music. Timing is good and bad, as we just lost T-Model Ford. Monies from t he sale go to the family to help with the expenses. This is a ‘Amuse Bouche’ or ‘happy mouth’ from French Culinary tradition as a little extra that pleases the palette, and let’s hope it does more than just that.
