The latest edition of Jazzed and Blue: Profiles in Blues and Jazz is now available for download at Rockwired.com and features music and exclusive interviews with Cedric Burnside, blues singer-songwriter Peach and jazz rock fusion band Dream Logic. Kicking off this latest edition of Jazzed and Blue is a profile on blues artist Cedric Burnside. As the grandson of the late and most definitely great R.L. Burnside, Cedric is carrying on the family legacy with The Cedric Burnside Project and their latest release Hear Me When I Say. Teaming up with lead guitarist Trenton Ayers, Burnside flexes his musical muscle on the drums, guitar and vocals and the duo delivers a raw, uncompromising sound that combines hill country blues with new school funk. The exclusive interview with Burnside is brought to Jazzed and Blue by Rockwired correspondent Sunny McDaniel.
There is almost no question in anyone's mind that the last five years have been especially trying thanks to the global markets collapsing and a recession that is still making folks nervous. In 2007 Rockwired became acquainted with the sultry sound of blues singer and guitarist Peach on the strength of her award winning album The Real Thing. After all of the acclaim, live shows and awards (one of which was the 2007 Rockwired Radio Music Award for Best Female Artist) Peach all but fell off the radar leaving many wondering what the hell happened. It turns out that the end of a long running marriage and the troubles that went along with it were responsible for the silence on her end and that is too bad We all could've used her music to get us through some rocky times. Anyhow times have changed and Peach is back on the stage with her high heels and her six string and she's here to stay. Currently she is penning some new material with a little help from such reliable blues folk as Keb Mo' and Danny Timms. While there is no official release as of yet, Peach is writing and recording like crazy and electrifying audiences with that one of a kind stage presence and a blistering set of songs that celebrate love that is both lost and found.
Headed by multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Charles Compo - The Dream Logic are a jazz fusion outfit with musical muscle mass to spare thanks to a little help from veteran bassist Jerry Brooks (D'Angelo, Special EFX), drummer Camille Gainer (whose touring credits include Kool and the Gang, Lees Nubians), Brian Dunne (Halll & Oates, Daryl's House), percussionist Mustafa Ahmed, (whose credits include an early rap hit and a tour with Grandmaster Flash) and Grammy nominated keyboardist Jeff Miller (Shakira, Jeffrey Osborne). Unpredictability is the word of the day. This team of committed players is able to shift into fifth gear with with rocking track like their first single The Decision or they can bring things to a chill with tracks such as Spooky Reaction and Mustafa's Sunrise. This buoyant collection of songs is as inspired as it is irresistible.
