Kelly Joe Phelps is the premier acoustic blues guitarist. For years his fans have been begging him to release a live CD. At last, Tap The Red Cane Whirlwind is the long-awaited opportunity to hear Kelly Joe recorded live in concert! Over an hour of pure unadulterated Kelly Joe Phelps at his finest – recorded in the intimate environments of two favorite venues – McCabe’s in Santa Monica and The Freight And Salvage in Berkeley. The repertoire features Kelly Joe favorites, including “Jericho,” “Tommy,” “Not So Far To Go,” plus astonishing versions of two classic cover songs – “Hard Time Killin’ Floor Blues” and “I Am The Light Of The World.”

Singer-songwriter Maria McKee takes a more organic approach on her sixth album. Most tracks start with the faint strum of an acoustic guitar or the tinkling of a piano, before gradually building to a restrained but emotionally charged crescendo. McKee revels in this less-is-more musical environment. Her multioctave voice moans, hovers, whispers, and occasionally soars with a cool confidence. From the yearning folk augmented with subtle, tender strings of “Appalachian Boy,” to “Sullen Soul,” a powerful riff-driven ballad, to the stylized, Patsy Cline-influenced country-pop of “You Don’t Know How Glad I Am,” she floats and weaves with edgy grace. The aching, soulful “Turn Away” is a riveting example of McKee at her finest, clawing her way into the heart of a song.
