MIRACLES AND DEMONS

NORTHERN BLUES MUSIC

NBM 0057 BOOTY BUMPIN'--I'M A GOOD MAN--SAY--BECAUSE OF YOU--RIDE A PAINTED PONY--MIRACLERS AND DEMONS (PART 1)--I REMEMBER--BLUES FALL DOWN LIKE RAIN--MONKEY SEE MONKEY DO--IN THE MORNING--MISS CARRIE--MR BLUES--MIRACLES AND DEMONS (PART 2)

Born in Cuba and raised in Chicago, guitarist Eddie Turner has developed a unique style that melds the layered, multi-rhythmic patterns of his homeland with the grit, funk, and "down-home" blues of the Windy City. He's played with Tracy Nelson and Mother Earth, and before starting his successful solo career, spent time in Otis Taylor's band as Taylor's guitarist of choice.

Those diverse credentials are brought to the forefront on his third outing for Fred Litwin's Northern Blues imprint, this one entitled "Miracles And Demons." It consists of thirteen of Eddie's versatile originals that seem to run the gamut of human emotions, fueled by his passionate guitar, and is produced by Kenny Pasarelli, himself a member of Otis Taylor's outfit.

As such, there are quite a few "detours" from traditional, "straight-ahead" blues on this set. The slow-blues intro..outro of the leadoff "Booty Bumpin" segues' into a soulful shuffle that rides a catchy riff. The slide intro to "Say" soon gives way to a psychedelic, wah-wah washed guitar break at the bridge, the guitar echoing Eddie's impassioned vocal pleas for his lover to stay. A poignant look at life on the streets is the theme of "Ride A Painted Pony," while the dark, brooding title cut recalls Eddie's days with Otis Taylor.

We had two favorites, too. A tale of love gone bad morphs into a screaming guitar fest complete with visions of hellhounds and hellbound trains as Eddie ponders aloud, "where are you, Mr. Blues?" And, a bit of comic relief is "Monkey See, Monkey Do," with a sweet backbeat that propels its humorous look at love and relationships.

Eddie Turner's "Miracles And Demons" is perhaps his most diverse set to date. He's got the world-class chops that give him the swagger to have no fear in giving us a taste of blues that are cut from a slightly-different cloth. This is one we know everyone will.....ENJOY!!! Until next time.....Sheryl and Don Crow.
