Description

Two men who have both more than earned their spurs in the blues world come together for an acoustic project that feels both ancient and very fresh.

It was a random night in 1974 when a young Bob Corritore witnessed a performance by Muddy Waters and his band at his high school, with Bob Margolin in the ranks. That this eventually turned out to be the beginning of a friendship that lasted for many years was, of course, impossible to predict at the time, but now, decades later, this joint record feels like a logical consequence.

Thirteen songs were selected for the ‘So Far’ album, seven of which were newly written by Margolin and one instrumental was provided by Corritore. The two gentlemen can be heard on all tracks, but on It Makes No Diffrence and Running Through High Water they are supported by Jimmy Vivino , someone who was the band leader in the American “Late Night Talkshow Conan” for years.

It’s 45 minutes of old-fashioned blues, no drums/keys/bass and so on but an acoustic minimal approach. Steady Rollin’ On kicks off the album and gives a great preview of what to expect. An album that is full of experience in playing together and responding to each other.
