Mississippi Sound has got that unstoppable foot-stomping tempo typical of the great John Lee Hooker’s style but executed by Martin and his Power Trio spectacularly well, with Martin’s slide guitar sounding like heaven.
Same goes for Angry, a tune with a strong rock influence, with Martin’s lyrics as cut-throat (..politicians don’t stand for what it’s right…) as it is his thunderous Stratocaster guitar sound. The choice of the album title has not been casual for the English artist’s new album.
Fans of vintage Fleetwood Mac should also try to listen to ‘Graceful Ways’.
This release is a very fine contemporary take on the classic UK blues sound, which should appeal both to lovers of modern blues and followers of classic blues-rock.” Norman Darwen “Twoj Blues” Poland Jan 3 2017 “British bluesman Eddie Martin makes excellent albums and “Black White and Blue” is another ..a power-trio tribute to the late 60s British blues-rock sound.
Black, White And Blue are the three colours through which Martin sees the way the Blues has confluenced itself into other music genres through the years and the record’s title-track, through its clever pastiche of blues, rock and hillibilly, is the best way to sonically illustrate Martin’s musical views.
One of the many aspects of Martin’s talent is not just linked to his extraordinary ability as a musician but also to the maturity he has reached as a songwriter.
With such a strong crop of upcoming or becoming established British singer-guitarists currently plying their blues and blues rock trade across the UK (the recent spike-in-the-charts rise of Joanne Shaw Taylor, the talents of young six-string slingers Laurence Jones, Ben Poole and Chantel Mc Gregor, to name but four) it’s worth reminding ourselves the currently buoyant scene has been built on the strengths of those at the top of their game twelve, fifteen and twenty or more years on from making their own impact on the circuit.Often, many fans or even music press have labelled the genre as one expressing sadness, loneliness, living tough times or going through rough patches in everyday’s life.The English Blues Maestro Eddie Martin has got a much more lucid and wider vision of what Blues and being a Bluesman is all about.Eddie Martin could be considered the Mac Gyver of British Blues as his talents are multiple and varied.He combines the capacities of singer-songwriter, producer and arranger, inspired and talented guitarist and harmonica-player, and has evolved to perform solo, in a trio or even within a big band, and is equally happy on electric or acoustic.
