Beaucoup Blue

Here is an offering in the acoustic blues style from Boucoup Blue titled Hearts At Home. Beaucoup Blues is:
Adrian Mowry on vocals, six and twelve string guitar
David Mowry on vocals, six string, slide and Dobro guitar
Jim Salamone on drums, percussion and harmonica

Beaucoup Blues is a Philadelphia based father and son duo of David and Adrian Mowry. They give us some great acoustic blues with eight of the thirteen tracks having been penned by one of the Mowry’s.

They start with a John Lee Hooker song titled Little Wheel. This song had my toes tapping almost from the first note. On My Way is next and is an Adrian Mowry original. It features some nice lyrics and great vocals and instrumentation. This is followed by Arthur Johnson’s Make Me A Pallet On Your Floor. Another Adrian Mowry original is next in Lonesome Blues. Benny Goodman’s Stompin’ At The Savoy is next. This is followed by Tony Joe White’s Rainy Night In Georgia. This is a great cover of a wonderful song. On The Corner is another Adrian Mowry original, and is a very well written and arranged slow shuffle. They follow with I heard Gabriel Singing, a David Mowry original. Another David Mowry song follows titled Four In The Morning with lyrics by George C. Remaily. The Elmore James classic It Hurts Me Too is next. Heartache On Horizon is next and is another Adrian Mowry original. Next is I Surrender and is another David Mowry original. The cd ends with the title track Hearts At Home penned by Adrian Mowry.

This is a solid offering with great cover song, wonderful originals and features great vocals instrumentation and harmonies. I am happy to have had the opportunity to hear this great music. As a lover of acoustic blues both old and new, I think there may be some new classics here from the Mowry’s.

Beaucoup Blue has traveled the east coast bringing their acoustic blues based folk music everywhere they stop, make a point of catching these guys if they are every within reach.
