Andy Aledort and The Groove Kings - Live at North Star (2009 US Blues Rock)


O QUÊ?? ANOS 2000??!! POIS MERECE ESTAR ENTRE OS VENENOS PORQUE É UM DISCO GRAVADO AO VIVO COM MUITA IMPROVISAÇÃO DE HARD BLUES ROCK BEM BACANA!! APESAR DE SER GRAVADO EM 2009 TEM UM CLIMA E UMA SONORIDADE RETRÔ SETENTISTA IMPRESSIONANTE, COM RIFFS PESADOS, CHEIO DE ESTILO E COM UMA INTERAÇÃO FANTÁSTICA DA BANDA!! PARECE TER SIDO GRAVADO NO INÍCIO DOS ANOS 70!! O ALBUM, ALÉM DE MATERIAL PRÓPRIO, INCLUI COVERS DE CLÁSSICOS DO BLUES COM IMPROVISAÇÕES MUITO INTERESSANTES!! NEM TUDO ESTÁ PERDIDO NOS ANOS 2000!! O SONHO (AINDA) NÃO ACABOU!! VENENO BLUES RECOMENDADO!!

THE DREAM IS NOT OVER (YET)!! Excellent Live disc by this accomplished, seasoned "old-school" blues/rock axeslinger from New York who rocks the blues with style, class & authority. Featuring 8 tracks @ 71 minutes of first rate, authentic, retro-70s, blues-based heavy guitar riffage that digs deep on the extended six string jam theory. The man plays his ass off and TONE is his middle name, Aledort is the REAL deal. Along with having played many "Hendrix Tribute" gigs with Billy Cox and Buddy Miles and being a long-time editor @ Guitar World magazine further proves that Andy Aledort is a legit player who knows what time of day it is on the guitar. Highly recommended to people who dig serious Guitar Rock and to fans of Hendrix, Trower, Winter, SRV, Clapton & Bonamassa.

Recorded at one of our regular haunts, the beautiful club/restaurant NORTH STAR located in Pound Ridge, NY, "LIVE AT NORTH STAR 2009" is a great example of the kind of insanity the band and I venture into at every gig. The album includes covers of such classic blues tunes as Freddie King’s “Big Leg Woman,” Ray Charles’ “I Don’t Need No Doctor,” B.B. King’s “Gambler’s Blues,” Albert King’s “Wrapped Up in Love Again,” Albert Collins’ “Bending Like a Willow Tree,” and Little Walter’s “Last Night,” plus two original compositions, “Right by Your Side” and “Do You Have a Sister.”
