  • Three Flavors of Chicago Blues: Big Ray, Linsey Alexander, Donny Nicholo
    one and only Kingston Mines nightclub where the funk is featured on one stage and the over the top rocked out louder than thunder guitar is king attitude rules on the other Here s where you ll find the master of blaster faster Linsey Alexander bleating his blues and beating his guitar on a weekly basis Lindsey will loudly proclaim that he s just taken 25 Viagra and 30 Cialis and he s ready to take all comers Then he ll turn his guitar up to a Spinal Tap influenced 11 and play more notes than you thought possible from this gray posturing madman in his Stetson hat and cowboy boots He ll leave the stage and prowl the crowd leering at both men and women proclaiming his sexual prowess at volumes too loud to ignore Linsey s self produced disc If You Aint Got It is a pretty faithful rendition of his live show loud raw rocked out and raucous If that s the kind of blues you like then get on down to the Kingston Mines and get this CD From the first blast of saxophone on the title track to the last ringing chord this raw unpretentious tell it like it is disc is a stark contrast to the other two reviewed here really speaking to the blues vibe of Chicago s blue collar South Side bar room sound complete with quirky tempo shifts and a few forgivable clams This disc is served best with a glass of cheap whiskey sold over a beaten wood bar in a room with a cracked linoleum floor to really set the mood Born in Mississippi raised in Memphis Linsey has adopted the Chicago sound and made the Windy City his home base His band always features some of Chicago s finest up and coming young players and this CD follows that winning formula Notable are performances by the young Italian guitarist Breezy who follows in the footsteps of such great Chicago guitarists as Lurrie Bell by not using a pick This approach gives him a unique somewhat subdued attack Pay attention to the deftly lyrical Japanese sax player Ayako Minami who blows the first cadences on the disc and is in my opinion also a highlight of Linsey s live shows One of the best examples of Linsey s singing and writing styles is the groove heavy I Can t Eat I Can t Sleep in which he proclaims I can t drink I can t sleep I can t eat since my woman left me can t somebody tell me what s wrong with me and goes on to describe the scenario with a fine slide break delivered over a first rate Chicago lump This disc like Big Rays was also produced by and features the guitar work of Pete Galanis who seems to be gifted with the ability to effortlessly blend with and enhance any musical ensemble Linsey s disc is also available through CDbaby although if you
