''…he is one of the most serious blues guitarists you can find today. He makes me proud!''...
Ronnie Earl and The Broadcasters return with Ronnie's 26th album!
Chart topping, 4 time W.C Handy Blues Award Winners, Ronnie Earl and The Broadcasters return with Ronnie's 26th album ''Beyond The Blue Door'', courtesy of Stony Plain Records.
A whopping 15 track sonic journey that serves as a clinic on the versatility of blues guitar. This record covers everything from relaxed shuffles to motown grooves and mellow, sophisticated duets. Powered by ''The Broadcasters''; Dave Limina (Piano & Hammond B3), Diane Blue (Additional Vocals), Forest Padgett (Drums) and Paul Kochanski (Bass), we are treated to the caliber of musicianship that truly gives life to these songs and provides a listening experience you would have to feel to believe.
The master blues guitarist brings out the best in the Broadcasters and various guests making a sizzling set that used to come along with blasé regularity but is now a treat to behold. With a lot of genre busting elements that make this much more than a white boy with the blues acting out, Earl really drills down here to make this a first class ass kicker. Varying the set card for maximum impact rather than maximum publishing royalties, this is an undisputable tour de force. Top shelf all the way.
