MARSHALL LAWRENCE-

I’m giving a shout out today for Canadian Marshall Lawrence‘s new record, “Blues Intervention.”  Lawrence, who calls himself the “doctor of the blues,” make what I call “clean” blues.  He’s got a smooth voice and a smooth guitar style–no grit, and, honestly, not a lot of pain.  It’s not what I am used to when I pick up a blues record.  It’s crisp.

It’s getting a write up because the musicianship, as a technical matter, is terrific.  Lots of fun to listen to.  He takes standards like “Walking Blues” and “Going Down the Road Feeling Bad” (a personal fave) and makes them sound new and modern–which isn’t easy to do with songs you’ve heard played dozens of times by dozens of different artists.
