The blues is a very wide music, & our body of work shows that. To us, it's a natural thing to pour the wonderful traditional blues that have influenced us into life's 'blender', add other new musical, cultural & practical elements that surround us & effect our daily lives, & then throw the switch... What we pour out we can call our own, & Mocombo gives us a conduit to bring it to you. Without great songs & stories to tell, the blues would be but a handful of notes & chords, & we are very proud of the stories being told on Mocombo releases. Bear in mind that these are songs constructed to MOVE you on all levels (DANCE & ROMANCE highly encouraged)... The great Godfathers & Godmothers of the Blues (& their children, the Angels of Soul, Funk, Soul-Jazz & more) were playing by no one's rules except those of REAL LIFE. We mean to do the same. I've been in the business of playing the blues, promoting the blues, and loving the blues for all my adult years. The idea of creating a label that takes all the traditions of this soulful art form & adds other flavors has always been a dream of mine. MOCOMBO RECORDS is the realization of that dream, presenting something we like to call Custom Blues... Enjoy it!! Thanks - John 'Juke' Logan.
