Topic: Kingfish

Old school blues.  First blues album that grabbed me by the collar in some time.
Great picker + good songs.

Hey Curby;
Is this the mid-70s Kingfish (Bob Weir, Matthew Kelly on guitar and harmonica, Dave Torbert on bass, Robbie Hoddinott on guitar, and Chris Herold on drums.

Or the 2003 established Kingfish Band; STEVE MATZ - VOCALS / GUITAR; NATHAN NIEDERKORN - GUITAR / VOCALS; JEFFREY SCHOLFIELD - GUITAR / VOCALS; REBECCA NOTH - KEYS; JORDAN SMITH - BASS GUITAR; BRANDON LORENZ - PERCUSSION.

Or, Christone "Kingfish" Ingram who's debut album Kingfish came out last week?
Out of This Town - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUXzZWBEJFE


Either way, win/win/win

All those who believe in psychokenesis raise my hand........

Door number 3, young Christone Ingram aka Kingfish.  Like I said last week his new album pumps new blood
into the Blues genre.  He reminds me of a young Buddy Guy, sassy and gifted in his playing.  This is not a blues by the numbers collection.  I'd love to catch him at the Rum Boogie in Memphis....and maybe will.

Re: Kingfish

This is a fine blues album. Such talent for a 20 year old . He definitely has been soaking up all the legends and really has an uncanny feel for the blues.
Outstanding !!

Re: Kingfish

Cheers Curby; your recommends always give me a couple of hours happy searching & exploring, and a "nod" from Gary seals the deal. Having me some of that album...

Re: Kingfish

I always have a hard time telling my son about new players he might not know of, this one went poorly as well because he has heard him from way back when. He said he has played with Eric Gales some, Middle of the Road release. I really enjoyed Outside of This Town, may not be a new one, good stuff and will watch for him if he gets close to Birmingham

Re: Kingfish

The link Mike posted is I think the only official video off the album Kingfish.  Though it is a fine song, there are many more much better IMO off the album Kingfish.
There have been many new blues albums released that just don’t intrigue me like they used to.  Not saying they’re bad records just not my cup of tea.  This album, however, just possesses all the elements I hold dear listening to the blues as it should be played.

Re: Kingfish

My good friend Jdog (occasionally posts on here) made an interesting observation over on t'other board. This release comes 50 years after Johnny Winter's debut and is causing just as much "buzz" in the Blues/Rock community.

Re: Kingfish

Most very young blues phenoms,like Joe B,have come via the way of spectacular guitar playing. I see with Kingfish more of the total package.Sure he is an excellent player, but  his feel  and vocal sound and delivery are so authentic. You just can’t find that sound in someone near his age.
If you played that to someone not knowing who he is I bet if they like blues they will love his music.Then tell him his age and they will be astounded.

Re: Kingfish

cool, will have to try to make that Baltimore show....and looking forward to seeing him on the cruise
been enjoying the new album....overall a bit traditional blues for my normal preference but excellent
really love his voice and lyrics along with playing...there's a song...forget name but its about him being an old soul or something....its a definite...he's not like everyone else and am glad he recognizes it himself

Re: Kingfish

son and I will try to see him here on 10/6, from their website it appears to be a free concert

Re: Kingfish

I have the new album, it took a few times through before it got my attention.....my expectations were not what I expected, guess my mind wanted to hear shredders on every tune roll

  He can play for sure.But follows the path of focusing on the blues more than just guitar.So I would say if you were expecting the guitar workout style you would be a little disappointed.
  For a young man I think he gets the actual blues vibe more than most. He does sing about it being an old soul in a young body.It is that without a doubt.
