They call me Muddy Wolf!

Guitar Techniques - - INTRO -

Joe Bona­Massa’s lat­est re­lease is a unique con­cert ex­pe­ri­ence - a trib­ute to blues leg­ends Muddy Wa­ters and howlin’ Wolf. the con­cert, filmed near Den­ver in May last year, is now re­leased as a DvD and cD. For Muddy Wolf, songs were care­fully se­lected from the cat­a­logs of howlin’ Wolf, one of chicago’s most in­flu­en­tial blues­men, known for his deep, scratchy voice, and Muddy Wa­ters, con­sid­ered the fa­ther of mod­ern chicago blues.

the con­cert fea­tures a se­lec­tion of songs from each artist, fol­lowed by a 30-minute set of songs from Bona­massa’s own ex­ten­sive cat­a­logue. the line-up of play­ers is also dif­fer­ent from Bona­massa’s tour­ing band, dubbed the Muddy Wolf Band, and in­cludes an­ton Fig (drums), Michael rhodes (bass), reese Wy­nans (pi­ano, ham­mond or­gan), lee thorn­burg (trum­pet, horn ar­range­ments), ron Dz­i­ubla (sax­o­phone), nick lane (trom­bone), Mike hen­der­son (har­mon­ica), and Kirk Fletcher (gui­tar).

of the ex­pe­ri­ence, a hum­bled and grate­ful Bona­massa says: “in­spired was the feel­ing that per­me­ated the camp from the very down­beat. it was the gig of a life­time for me. What you see on this DvD is what it was like to play in front of the largest au­di­ence of my ca­reer, play­ing mu­sic that i loved, love, and fell in love with again in a much big­ger way than i had be­fore.” check it out!
