Joe Bonamassa: Black Rock

Black Rock is Joe's sixth album, it was recorded at and named for Black Rock Studios in Santorini, Greece. A fusion of blues, bouzouki and clarino - I had my doubts on first listen my ear didn't quite tune. However by the third time of listening to the album I found myself grinning from ear to ear and definitely chilled. An album I'll listen to repeatedly 4* out of 5 for me. Mr Bonamassa is getting better and better - he is in a good place!

A seller is his duet with B.B. King on the Willie Nelson 'Night Life'.

I also like Leonard Cohen's poetic 'Bird On A Wire'

Buy the album - see him on tour - I will!

I look forward to seeing his collaboration with Jason Bonham, Glenn Hughes and Derek Sherinian in forming a supergroup called Black Country.
