New Music From Singer/Songwriters Cary Morin & Cidney Bullens, Along With The Jim Kweskin Band with Samoa Wilson

Singer/songwriter Cary Morin recently released a new studio album earlier this month titled "Dockside Saints." It finds Cary teaming up with Grammy winning producer and engineer Tony Daigle to create a new set of outstanding Americana standards. This new twelve track album starts off with athe little New Orleans jazz flair of "Nobody Gotta Know," followed by the slow blues of "Exception To The Rule." Cary's deliver of the lyrics feel truthful, especially during the swampy, funky acoustic strumming of "Prisoner" and the enlightening piano ballad "Tonight." Its not all about the blues, as Cary Morin and his band pick up the tempo for the Cajun/Americana flair of "Jamie Rae" and the exciting instrumental "Cary's Groove." He wraps up his new album with the sweet, southern country sounds of "Blue Delta Home" and the swift, uptempo rocker "Come The Rain."

Fellow singer/songwriter Cidny Bullens is preparing to release his new album "Walkin' Through This World" on August 21st. It is only his ninth studio album of original material from a career that has lasted through four decades. His new ten song release begins with the soulful rocker "Little Pieces" and the more laid-back country vibe of "Purgatory Road." Cidny pours his heart into the beautiful ballad "The Gender Line," then draws upon the country blues of "Sugartown," before a swinging rock and roll rhythm lifts your spirits and the tempo once again with "Call Me By My Name." He finishes his new album with slow blues of "Laugh In The Rain" and the quiet, gentle acoustic ballad "Healing The Break."

The Americana/folk/jazz playing Jim Kweskin Band has teamed up with American roots/folk/jazz singer Samoa Wilson for a new collaboration title "I Just Want To Be Horizontal."  The idea for this new album came together over the love of early, traditional jazz favorites by Teddy Wilson and a then unknown Billie Holiday. This new seventeen track release is filled to the brim with classics that may have been forgotten over the years, like "The Candy Man," "Inchworm" and "Our Love Is Here To Stay," but it may be the more obscure tracks that grab your attention. Samoa Wilson's voice is so sweet and pure on the mellow jazz groove of "Trust In Me" and also the uptempo, swinging rhythm of "Me, Myself & I," which is pure fun and positively addictive. The gentle island sway of "At Ebb Tide" and the fun jazz romp of "He Ain't Got Rhythm" will certainly turn you into a fan of Samoa Wilson and the Jim Kweskin Band.
