AL BASILE: WORDS & MUSIc
SOUL BLUE 7
                                                                                         
The seventh Al Basile CD follows two releases which made #14 on the Living Blues charts in 2006 and 2008. Soul Blue 7 adds trombonist Carl Querfurth to the horn section while keeping the rhythm section intact from The Tinge and featuring guest spots from Sax Gordon Beadle on tenor and Sugar Ray Norcia on harp. This time the music centers around soul blues and swing, with lots of cornet solos from Al. There’s even a foray into blues reggae, and Al’s version of his tune “This Dream” which producer/guitarist Duke Robillard has recorded twice himself over the years.



Reviews 

ANOTHER CLASSIC FROM THE BARD OF THE BLUES


"Singer-cornetist Al Basile, on his recent recording Soul Blues 7, consolidates his position as one of the top songwriters and lyricists of recent times. His fresh melodies, intelligent and insightful lyrics, and philosophical look at the situations that life presents result in memorable music waiting to be discovered."

- Scott Yanow, jazz writer, editor of All Music Guide to Jazz and Third Ear’s Swing
