World-renowned, horn-fueled “little big band” releases their ﬁrst new studio recording in nine years. Roomful of Blues have over 364,000 career scans, even though their ﬁrst six releases predated SoundScan
Recipients of ﬁve Grammy nominations and winners of multiple Blues Music Awards (the Grammy of the blues), plus numerous victories in DownBeat’s International Critics Poll, Roomful of Blues are celebrated coast to coast and around the world. From The New York Post to The San Francisco Examiner, Billboard to USA Today and People, Roomful’s muscular, horn-driven blues and high-voltage live performances continue to garner praise.
In A Roomful Of Blues reveals a famed band hitting stride yet again with 11 new original songs, plus a couple of R&B chestnuts originally recorded by Doc Pomus and Buddy Ace. It’s an engaging, exuberant collection that is equal parts deft sophistication and roadhouse raunch, as comfortable deep in the blues as rockin’ down the house, and all powered by blistering guitar, driving horns and commanding vocals.
