Curtis Salgado-‘The Beautiful Lowdown'

Curtis Salgado is not one to be pigeon-holed into any singular musical genre as his past CD releases ‘Soul Shot’ and this latest release clearly prove. ‘The Beautiful Lowdown’ delves into wherever Curtis Salgado’s passion leads him whether it be rhythm and blues, soul, swing or down home blues.
After more than 40 years performing with his own bands, being the front man for the Robert Cray Band and a member of Roomful of Blues and guesting with the likes of Santana and Steve Miller, Curtis has the backlog of experience to expertly handle any genre that touches him. Despite a long history of health issues dealing with cancer, hep C, gallstones and more, Curtis fought the good fight and has come back stronger for it. ’Hard to Feel the Same About Love’, the opening cut on this release is a solid R&B cut with a driving rhythm and deep horn work; a tune that would have been a radio hit when Motown ruled the roost. A soulful ballad, ‘Healing Love’ unleashes the loneliness that pervaded until he met the one who provided that healing love.
‘I Know a Good Thing’ brings an acoustic blues slide to a mix that creates the ‘old sitting on the front porch jam’ vibe. ‘Is There Something I Should Know’ is a heartfelt bluesy duet ballad, and ‘Lowdown Dirty Shame’ brings strong support from backup vocalists. ‘Walk a Mile in My Blues’ says it all for Curtis Salgado and probably for anyone reading this or listening to this CD.
Going back to my initial opening sentence, you will find an excellently produced potpourri of blues, soul, and R&B on Curtis Salgado’s new ‘The Beautiful Lowdown’. I’m already looking forward to his next release.
