This Killer Debut CD from Houston Based Bluesman "Albert Storo", in this Day &
Age where the most "popular" & solid releases are filled with lots of "Distortion &
Wha Wha pedals" , Be assured, there are none here.. Storo comes through with a
powerful Electric blues recording.
From the opening track of the Jimmy Rogers classic "Thats Alright" you'll get the
idea of Albert's vibe is all about, this reworking is drenched in the spirit of the

"Otis Rush", this track not only features Albert on Guitar & Vocals but, on Drums &
Bass as well... "I just needed to get the feel & most importantly, the arrangement
right" Storo says.
The 14 plus minute live version of "Bobby Rush'" "Chicken Heads" shows how
you can still push the envelope without playing stereotypical "Blues Rock", its
"Rocked Up Blues" thats all.

Hill" or "Little Milton", The solo pays a sincere homage to Storo's former boss, the

refreshing take on the Classic Jazz standard again, without making it a 'Jazz tune"
per se' yet still, keeping 100% respectful and organic.
