Nemeth John - Memphis Grease (CD)€18,00
John Nmeth was probably the only kid in Boise who grew up in the 1980’s listening to Chicago blues In the three decades since, Nmeth has transformed himself from a fan to a modern soul-blues purveyor of the highest order, receiving five Blues Music Award nominations in 2012 and two in 2013, including the B.B. King Entertainer of the Year award. It’s a journey that took him to San Francisco, then Oakland, California, followed by a relocation to the birthplace of blues, soul and rock-and-roll Memphis. He landed in the perfect place: Electraphonic Studio, home of producer and musician Scott Bomar, who composed the film scores for Hustle & Flow and Black Snake Moan and produced Cyndi Laupers Memphis Blues. Support by the Bo-Keys, Bomars group of veteran Memphis performers who made their names backing the likes of Al Green, O.V. Wright, Rufus Thomas and the Bar-Kays, Nmeth quickly laid down thirteen tracks that as he describes it, Live in the style like I live in the style. That style is a deeply forged amalgamation of scorching harmonica-driven blues and sweet blue-eyed soul ala The Box Tops or Roy Head, delivered via two fistfuls of originals and a trio of carefully chosen covers.
