Blues Juice

Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page

If you squeeze traditional old-style blues with chunks of jazz and singer-songwriter and a good dose of self-willed interpretational treats through the press, you get a fiery red spicy Blues Juice" - the musical product of Frank Schwinn (vocals, guitar) and Nane Frihstickl (vocals, piano) - special guest Anton Willinger (bluesharps). The two charismatic voices complement each other wonderfully and give the songs an emotional expressive touch. They put all their vocal abilities and facets into the music and draw the listener into the midst of the stories told, be it interpretations of old blues standards, popular songs from the rock history, or their own compositions. Furthermore Frank Schwinn's trained laid-back style on the guitar combined with the solid piano riffs of Nane Frihstickl create a unique groove.
Blues Juice
The duo is complemented by the optional virtuoso harmonica sounds of Anton Willinger who plays along on the album "Drippin 'Water" at 4 songs as a special guest. Paying dues to the sound of the old masters of blues like Robert Johnson, Rufus Thomas, Bob Dylan etc. in combination with influences from jazz and partly experimental fields the full-blooded musicians develop a completely new approach to the blues. Special feature of this album: all songs recorded live in one room except 2 harp overdubs.
