With his eighth solo CD The Goods, which finds him
again working with close musical compatriot Duke Robillard and new
collaborators the Grammy winning Blind Boys of Alabama, Al continues
to tell his unique stories in song, blues-roots style. Al has fused
his songwriting, cornet, and vocal talents together seamlessly,
and his 2010 nomination for a Blues Music Award as best horn player
shows that the lofty reputation he has earned among his musical peers is
continuing to spread to the wider world.
Great songwriting is in short supply,
and, dare we say it, especially in the blues. You'll find no recycled
mediocrity in the work of Al Basile. Michael Cote, Blues Revue
Basile may be the best musician out there that you've never heard.

for those who expect a little intelligence in their music, thanks to
his reputation as a published poet. Jazz&Blues Report
you want to hear swinging blues, this is the place. I must commend
Mr. Basile for creating a fine set of musical stories. Highly
recommended! Steve Jones, Crossroads Blues Society
