Big Apple Blues: Manhattan Alley

When looking for the sound if New York City Manhattan Alley it's best tho skip the streets and avenues and head for to back alleys and find a place that serves drinks and live music. When the sign promises a show by ace instrumental wuintet Big Apple Blues don't waste time and brace yourself for a set of steaming jazz blues. The band managed to capture he excitement of a live performance on their new album Manhattan Alley.

They are fluid, without being slick. While it's tempting to compare to Booker T. & the M.G.'s, that would sell them short in terms of genre variations. It happens to any band that has a prominent Hammond B3 player and a guitarist with way above average slide skills in their midst. Big Apple Blues like to lean towards jazz, each time when they change it up withing the parameters of the R&B; idiom. They are not a dance band, but their music is s sure fire guarantee for an irresistible urge to tap your feet. Funky, dirty at times and played with the confidence of musicians who have made a name for themselves in one of the most competitive environments for cutting it as an artist.
