Matt Schofield Far As I Can See
Matt has recently returned to the UK after a successful tour in the US. His recording history is already impressive, but this latest release is exceptionally good, even by his own high standards. The opening track, From Far Away sets the mood for the whole album: a selection of cool, sophisticated and well-produced blues tracks that are bursting with excitement and technical expertise. It’s no wonder then that Matt is considered to be the best blues guitarist to appear from any country in decades, and is constantly increasing his fan base. We love the slick paced Getaway, it’s totally brimming with delights, the funky Hindsight with its tight horn section and the Latin flavoured Yellow Moon. Matt is singing and playing at a whole new level; these are great songs and performances, and there’s not a single track that doesn’t deserve to be here. The album is also available as a double LP for those of you who love vinyl, so play and enjoy!
