Joe Bonamassa // Different Shades Of Blue by Bryan Toy

Joe Bonamassa

Different Shades Of Blue

J&R Adventures

This is straight-up rock-inflicted blues at it’s finest. Clean, smokin’ hot guitar licks packaged in tight, melodic grooves. Memorable, catchy tunes sung with soulful delivery. Intense, uplifting lyrics matching perfectly with toe-tapping rhythms. Joe Bonamassa’s latest album should become a staple on every rock-formatted radio station in the nation. After being discovered at a young age by Eric Clapton, Bonamassa has gathered for himself a loyal following of millions of rabid blues-loving fans. His name is synonymous with the term “guitar god” and is mentioned freely in the same breath as his heroes, Clapton, Jimmy Page, Duane Allman and Stevie Ray Vaughan. The brass-heavy “Trouble Town” could be off a Little Feat record and he channels Robert Cray on “Never Give All Your Heart.” His guitar work is killer as always on this record, but it is the diverse songwriting that sets this one apart.
