Solon Fishbone is the preeminent leader and vitally
important pioneer of Blues music in Brazil. A true guitar wizard, Fishbone's
dynamic, explosive style catapulted him to the top of the burgeoning
Brazilian Blues scene, quickly becoming a regular headline performer at
major Blues festivals and events. "Solon Fishbone y Los Cobras" have played
to enthusiastic audiences throughout Brazil and South America for 20 years
and were largely responsible for the boom of the Blues in Porto Alegre and
Solon's latest album, "Fish Tones", features band mates Cristiano Bertolucci
on drums and John Maldonado on keyboards as well as special appearances by
several other Blues artist friends.
"Fish Tones" brings together all of Solon's musical influences, creating a
kind of musical mosaic that encompasses Jazz, on "Red Top", Delta Blues on
"For Mother Earth" featuring Gaspero Harmonica, Texas blues on Freddie
King's, "See See Baby", featuring Brazilian Blues singer Azimbujia, and "I
Love The Woman", featuring harmonicist Ale Ravanello. "Fish Tones" opening
track, "What's On Your Mind", features special guest appearances by
Brazilian harmonica virtuoso Alex Rossi and Mississippi native, guitarist
and founding member of the Brazilian Blues band, "Blues Etilicos", Greg
Solon pays tribute to seminal Blues Masters Albert Collins on the tune, "C"
As In Collins", and BB King with his traditional tune, "The Woman I Love".
"Fish Tones" also showcases several original tunes including classic low
down shuffle, "She's So Hard To Find", and Latin inspired instrumental
tracks, "Por La Isla" and "Cool Breezes".
