Basic Blue

Basic Blue Description

BASIC BLUE, the follow up to 2008’s debut effort “Eyes of the City”, consists of twelve selections all written produced and arranged by Agwada who again shows that he can span the gamut moving smoothly through a variety of styles. From the gutsy slide riff of the opening “Chi-Town State of Mind” to the infectious guitar riff and slick string arrangement of the title track “Basic Blue” Other highlights include “Blindsided” a rocker that features killer fretwork from Agwada who remains in top form all throughout this outing, the funky clavinet-laden “President”, “Black Rain” an atmospheric slow Blues that showcases blazing fretwork by Agwada and “Head Too Tight” a funky instrumental that is sure to remind listeners that the spirit of Albert Collins is alive and well in third-generation Bluesmen such as Agwada. A few surprises ensue, with former Rolling Stone and harmonica wunderkind, Sugar Blue as special guest on “Shake it Up” and “Right on Time”. Blues powerhouse Larry McCray contributes some tasty guitar to “Right on Time” as well. The Chicago Horns also return for an encore performance on “Shake it Up”
