Lurrie Bell – Kiss of Sweet Blues


This is Lurrie’s third Delmark CD. His ’95 release Mercurial Son (679) was one of the most talked about and widely acclaimed CDs of the year. Gary Giddins of the Village Voice proclaimed it the “Best Blues Record of the Year”. Jas Obrecht reviewed Lurrie’s second CD, 700 Blues (700), in Guitar Player; “Lurrie delivers kingly bends, strange, stuttering phrases and long, spooling solos. His blown-speaker voice is rough and raw, his timing impeccable and his drive fearless”. Kiss Of Sweet Blues was produced by Dave Specter who is also featured on guitar. Of the fifteen songs most are new original compositions.
