Greene - The New World Blues is a fresh
and exciting release from Alastair Greene and has his trademark creative
lyrics and blazing electric and slide guitar. The release features a Power Trio
of Alastair Greene, Tab Benoit on drums and
harmonies, and Corey Duplechin on bass. The New World Blues
was recorded with limited remixing and only a few overdubs resulting in a "raw"
energy filled release that is cut from the souls of the Power Trio.

What To Do and The New World Blues: lyrics by Alastair Greene, music

release opens with Living Today that carries a "bayou" rhythm and
striking lyrics "Remember to let your love shine through, it ain't easy living
today." The track Lies and Fear has a blues funk sound and Alastair's
guitar work is expressive and captures his vocal tone seamlessly. The release
transitions to Bayou Mile, which is a poignant song about being on
the road and missing your roots "...if you
want to see me smile, walk with me a Bayou mile,....I can't wait to dance to the
swing of a Cajun song."
track When You Don't Know What You Want To Do is a nod to rockabilly
with a spirited baseline and riveting guitar work. No Long Amused is a saucy finger
licking good track that is seasoned to taste with Alastair's guitar and the
snappy drums work of Tab Benoit. Back At The Poor House is a rousing instrumental
track tracing back to Alastair's blues roots and one of my favorites on the
release. The track Find Your Way Back Home is another back to basic
blues for the Power Trio.
release slows down with the track Heroes and showcases Alastair's
passionate guitar transitions coupled with his captivating lyrics, "what you
inspire never fades away, you are with me each and every day, we may never know
things by their name, without a hero a life wouldn't be the same."
New World Blues closes out with the tracks Wontcha
Tell Me and Alone and Confused, two more distinct and catchy tracks
that showcase stellar guitar work. The last song and title track The New
World Blues puts a wrapper on this outstanding release as it features that
catchy "bayou" rhythm and bookends the release complementing the opening swamp
blues track Living Today.
