While carrying the blues around the world, from the Equator to the Arctic Circle, Guy Davis came back with some fresh inspiration and new stories to tell. Kokomo Kidd, Guy’s follow-up album to the hugely successful Juba Dance from 2013, finds the blues ambassador visiting fresh territory. It s a new beginning for me, he says, The first time I produced myself. What I m showing here is a side of me that s deep inside. It s needing air and light, and here it comes!
His deft acoustic playing and well-crafted lyrics are here as always. And though Davis calls on his gifts as an actor and storyteller, some of his new songs are personal as it gets.
Featuring Special Guests CHARLIE MUSSELWHITE, FABRIZIO POGGI & BEN JAFFE.
