By the River
'I like Blues Bands, but after a while, they all sound the same...' RRRRIP! Scratch that old record!! Sit down, pour yourself a cold one, kick back and spend a relaxin' evening with Washington State's best kept blues secret, the Baja Blues Band's 'By the River' CD - recorded live on stage in pristine digital! From sweet guitar riffs and melodic piano jams, to soul-filled sax and airy flute, the Baja Blues Band serves up 9 tunes guaranteed to soothe your soul and keep your cold ones comin'! Ain't no two songs alike, from the finger-picking acoustic guitar intro on the album's opener 'Little Bird' on thru the heart-felt closing ballad 'Hope of the World' you'll be treated to alternately soulful, sometimes latin-influenced and always well-crafted songs every step of the way -- every song new! Every song different from the last! Scott Wilburn, famous for his custom guitar building with the Wilburn Custom Shop (wilburncustomshop.com), shows he can play 'em as good as he can build 'em, from sweet acoustic to soulful electric. Eclectic jazz keyboardist Kevin Selby, well known for his modern synth jazz (see CD Baby: Kevin B. Selby) proves there's more to his chops than jazz, layin' down groovin' organ solos, soaring piano leads, and synth solos that'll take you back to the '70s. Greg Miner cries and sings with his sax and blues harp solos, and proves that the flute is a bona fide blues instrument as well. Just try to keep your feet still on this collection of groovin' tunes! The tracks on By the River were recorded live in the fall of 2008 at various venues across Washington State.
