Beyond the Blues Horizon
High-life R&B pours from this new release by one of California's premier Blues/R&B bands. Recorded 'live' at B.B. King's Blues Club in Los Angeles, you'll find 14 tracks from the heyday of the big band blues sound. This is the real thing - a true, authentic, classic R&B Revue and great American rockin' blues from a killer group of musicians and singers! Led by bassist/singer Larry 'Fuzzy' Knight, Blowin' Smoke is an 11-piece band that blends classic Blues and R&B songs and originals in a non-stop barrage of very danceable and listenable music & entertainment! Blowin' Smoke is a band that performs the kinds of songs everybody enjoys. Featuring expressive vocals and a tight horn section, this band would set any room rockin' on it's heels. Using five different lead vocalists: Larry 'Fuzzy' Knight, The 'COUNT' Yates and The Fabulous SMOKETTES -Carolyn Basley, Terri Brinegar & Christina Vierra - gives the band a not-often-heard vocal quality that's hard to match. When you combine the 4-piece Horn section and the 4-piece rhythm section with the vocals, the band creates a complexity in sound that puts it in the upper echelon of today's best R&B show bands. This CD, 'Beyond The BLUES Horizon' has been highly recommended by Blues Revue, Living Blues and Blues Access Magazines.
