You Got the Breadwe Got the Jam!
NOTE: A limited number of physical CDs are still available from our website bruha.com. 'You Got The Bread...We Got The Jam!' ...is the new album by Andreas Schuld & Hans Stamer, following their critically acclaimed debut 'No Special Rider', recorded in 1996 with Edmonton's Bill Bourne. In 1998 the album received both a Juno nomination and a West Coast Music Award nomination in the Best Blues Album category. This time blues legends Long John Baldry and Chris Nordquist were invited to join the party, and the result is a truly exciting spread of traditional and classic blues, performed with joyful spontaneity and passion. Again the jam was prepared live-off-the-floor, with 'no sugar added'... Long John Baldry, one of the fathers of British Blues and R&B, received a Juno Award in 1997 for his Stony Plain release 'Right To Sing The Blues' (which also earned him a 1998 West Coast Music Award). In 1998 he also garnered a Grammy nomination for his reading of 'Winnie the Pooh'. Considered by many of his peers to be one of the greatest drummers ever in the genre, Chris 'The Wrist' Nordquist has performed with Pinetop Perkins, Lloyd Glenn, Lousianna Red, Sunnyland Slim, Colin James and Colin Linden ('National Steel'/Juno 1998), and countless others. Andreas Schuld is one of the most recorded guitarists on the West Coast. He has played on hundreds of recording sessions and performed with many of Canada's top artists, be it Folk, Blues, Jazz, R&B, Pop or Country. (Raffi, Susan Crowe, Bourne & McLeod, One Horse Blue, Valdy, Big Miller, Kenny 'Blues Boss' Wayne, etc.) He is also an award winning songwriter and producer. Hans Stamer was the frontman of the legendary R&B Allstars for over 15 years. He has shared the stage with James Brown, Ike & Tina Turner and many others. Previous releases include two critically acclaimed albums for RCA with the Hans Stamer Band. Hans' legendary monthly Saturday afternoon performances at 'Rossini's' in Vancouver are 'standing-room' only events. 'Pure unplugged pleasure from start to finish. Highly recommended.' - Blues Scene Quarterly 'Informal, easy-rollin' acoustic blues from the laid back west coast. Long John Baldry joins in on five songs, and Colin James' drummer Chris Nordquist adds effortless percussion. A near-perfect take on the folk end of the blues spectrum.' - The Record 'This is vital music that is injected and presented with respect, spirit and a deep pool of talent. All four musicians involved, playing this music is second nature and it shows. Vancouver has something pretty special with this combination; here's hoping the rest of the country picks up on it.' - Peter North, The Edmonton Journal 'I love that CD! I think I might have already heard the best record of '99. Thanks for making such a great record.' - Kevin Doyle, Voodoo Healing, Ontario.
