Matty T Wall: Transpacific Blues Vol. 1

Australian blues singer and guitarist Matty T Wall has a fluid tone that is tailor made for playing the classics from the genre. Transpacific Blues Vol. 1 has eight songs from the canon and he managed to add something extra to each one. As an added bonus he invited five fellow guitarists- Eric Gales, Kirk Fletcher, Dave Hole, Kid Ramos and Walter Trout - to whip up some pretty sweet call-and-response six string duets.

This is an album that sounds like it was recorded a couple of decades ago: great dynamics and in-your-face playing like the musicians are right in front of the listener. With a running time of a little more than 35 minutes a vinyl release is a no-brainer, but for now the CD will do just fine.
