Joe Bonamassa - Live from Nowhere in Particular - 192 kbps

Joe Bonamassa — Autor renovcevic @ 09:24


Joe Bonamassa will release a double CD-set entitled Live From Nowhere In
Particular on August 19, 2008. There is fire and fervor in the music and in the
persona of guitarist Joe Bonamassa and although his studio albums have been
nothing less than exceptional, thereÆs no better way than the live performance
atmosphere to demonstrate just how mesmerizing this amazing guitarist/vocalist
can actually be. He's truly a fiery vocalist as well, a trait that has a lot to
do with his popularity, and he belts out the lyrics with resolute passion and
vigor. He is a well-rounded musician in every way.

Anyone familiar with Joe Bonamassa knows the degree of respect and admiration he
has for the music of yesteryear, primarily blues and rock. His renditions of the
classics, such as Tull's "A New Day Yesterday", Yes' "Starship Trooper", and
Alvin Lee's "One Of These Days", adds smiles of approval to the faces of
attentive audiences the world over. It's a crucial key to his amazing talent:
fans feel that they are listening to one of their peers, someone who feels the
same passion for the music. He's similar to the best friend you had growing up,
the guy next door you'd drink beers with on Sunday afternoons while listening to
vinyl records. Perhaps without even realizing the music's classic relevance at
that time, you related to it in a personal and private way.

A trait that never ceases to surface in his live sets, Joe pays homage to his
idols and influences. He'll often throw a classic lick into a song, and it's
often done with the same passion, phrasing, and tone of the initial recording.
His influences are many; they are legion, one might say; from one end of the
rock spectrum to the other, blues as well. However, the honor he bestows upon
musicians of the past and present is a humble endeavor of appreciation,
additives to accentuate a style thatÆs original and creative on its own. It's
all Joe Bonamassa, and he's a tonal mastermind of the instrument. Nevertheless,
he likes to toss something into the mix every now and then, just to remind
listeners where it all came from. Live From Nowhere In Particular is all that
and more.

The barnstorming opener, "Bridge To Better Days", as well as the astounding
acoustic blues, "Woke Up Dreaming", are both exemplary of the originality that's
Joe Bonamassa, and of the passion he exerts in the live setting. He's incredibly
adept at both electric and acoustic guitar, and this live set authenticates
that. Covers of Free's "Walk in My Shadow", Paul Marshall's "So Many Roads",
and Warren Haynes' "If Heartaches Were Nickels" are brilliantly executed. The
Blues Foundation board member puts pure emotion and sincerity into the blues.
Listen to the little Beatles insert at the end of "If Heartaches Were Nickles."
It's merely one example of the fun he has with melodies, empowered by an
imagination that segues tastefully from one area into another.

"Woke Up Dreaming" is an absolute killer song. Those who have seen Joe perform
it live know it to be true. It's a mesmerizing and exhilarating jaunt amid
acoustic prowess and fingerboard dexterity, coerced along by raw passion and
unadulterated intensity. The eighteen minute voyage through "Django/Just Got
Paid" is a dreamy excursion through Guitar Paradise. Similar to a good movie
with a theme of mystery and intrigue, IÆll leave out the potpourri of influences
heard in this one as to not be the spoiler. ItÆs totally amazing. Utilizing an
adroit talent for slide and fretboard wizardry, Joe soars off in sonic mounts
and diving plummets in the ten minute ôIndia/Mountain Time.ö His performance is
incredibly beautiful and melodic throughout each and every divergent course and
alteration. He ends the set with an incredible combo cover of "A New Day
Yesterdayö and ôStarship Trooper".

I believe wholeheartedly that it takes a great band to complete a great
performance, and although Joe is phenomenal throughout, he once again has a
brilliant group of guys backing him up here. With Carmine Rojas on bass, Rick
Melick on keyboards, and Bogie Bowles on drums, Joe Bonamassa excels in Live
From Nowhere In Particular, proving heÆs one of the most exciting guitarists and
performers on the scene today. This is an excellent live album.
