Album Review

For his second solo album in a year — not counting his excursion with Black Country Communion — Joe Bonamassa, the hardest working blues-rock guitarist of the 21st century, strikes up a bit of a smoky Black Keys vibe, signaling that he’s not quite as devoted to the past as he may initially seem. It’s not the only trick he has up his sleeve, either. Appropriately enough for an album entitled Dust Bowl, Bonamassa kicks up some country dirt on this record, enlisting John Hiatt for a duet on the songwriter’s “Tennessee Plates” and bringing Vince Gill in to play on the lazy shuffle “Sweet Rowena.” These are accents to an album that otherwise sticks to Bonamassa’s strong suit of blues in the vein of Cream, Stevie Ray, and Gary Moore, but it’s just enough of a difference to give Dust Bowl a distinctive flavor and suggests that the guitarist’s constant work is pushing him to synthesize his clear influences into something that is uniquely his own.

Customer Reviews

100% Badassery

Best guitarist since SRV, and a whole lot better than most of the garbage that emerges from the modern day music scene. The fact that almost no one has really heard him is pretty bad, but sometimes a cult status is all really need. Rock on, Joe.

Live on joe.

First time I saw and heard this band was live at a small, I say small Vanir on Long Island. Rotating center stage on Halloween 2002. Or 2001 not sure I was young. I've been hooked since. Not like one of those desktop bands you hear coming out these days. This is a really hard working band with all that you know and appreciate from rock and jazz in the past. Enjoy!
