Album Review

New England's Albert Cummings has been hailed as the next Stevie Ray Vaughan, and certainly Cummings' explosive, soulful, and emotional guitar style adds credence to that claim, but Cummings, a carpenter from Williamston, MA, has a completely different blues approach, tackling themes that would be familiar to any working stiff trying to support a family in an uncertain economy, sounding in this live set like a man who is more than glad that the weekend is here and he finally gets to make some noise. In this context, Cummings' blazing guitar breaks function as deliverance. Recorded in March of 2008 at the Colonial Theater in Pittsfield, MA before an enthusiastic hometown crowd, Feel So Good gives a glimpse of Cummings in his natural setting, and this is a straight-ahead rocking show that opens with the Friday night anthem "Party Right Here" and just keeps rolling from there. Locked in tight with drummer Aaron Scapin and bassist Daniel Broad, Cummings plays a hot hand on his Fender Strat as he tears through fine versions of B.B. King's "Rock Me Baby" and Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll," slowing things down a bit for a beautifully sung version of his own "Together as One." Live albums are often holding patterns for recording artists, and this one has that feel, but Cummings is such a down-home player and singer, and performing live on-stage is so obviously his sweet point, that Feel So Good seems like a perfectly natural career move. It sounds like it was one hell of a party that night, and in the end, that's how Cummings approaches the blues, by using it to catch a little bit of freedom and running off into the night with it, understanding that the blues is really all about the need for joy.

Gimme some BLUES man !!!

Albert Cummings does these songs proud. I recommend the album to all who like the blues played tight, played on a Strat while playing some classics.
Well done Albert, will keep an eye open for more of your work.

Top Shelf Rockin' Blues

From the outset Albert Cummings and his band deliver a firebrand energy that clearly sets the audience alight. The eleven songs capture a range of dynamics from sustained rockin' energy in tracks such as 'Party Right Here', 'Tell It Like It Is', and 'Your Own Way' to moody seductive numbers like 'Sleep' and 'Together as One.' Also love the respectful treatment of H*****e Coochie Man/Dixie Chicken (the audience participation on the Dixie Chicken tribute brought a tear to my eye) and the Led Zepplin classic, 'Rock and Roll', bursts out of the speakers like a 747 under full throttle. Cummings music would excite anyone who enjoys classy guitar playing from the genres of blues or rock.

Found this artist and wish I had had done it a lot sooner!!
The live tracks really make you feel as if you are there, and just having a real groove.
Hope he tours and comes to Australia one day soon!
