Al’s latest release, as the title suggests, focuses on his abundant abilities as a slide guitar player, and highlights the varied moods and textures this technique is known for creating.
From gentle instrumentals to raucous, in your face, electric blues, and using a variety of acoustic and electric guitars, the album features both original songs, and Al’s take on an eclectic mix of material from Big Boy Crudup’s Mean Old Frisco, to J S Bach’s Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring.
Al’s previous albums have been very well received by both Blues audiences, and the blues press, and Bottleneck Serenade promises to build on his growing reputation.
It will also answer the question Al is asked by prospective cd buyers all over the UK………
