Album Notes
What happens when a dedicated group of musicians coming from contemporary and traditional blues, alternative and classic rock, and funk and R&B backgrounds get together to have some fun and open up the musical vision? Black Bone Collective, playing an eclectic blend of progressive blues. Their recent cd documents a musical journey that started in 2002 and continues today. A guaranteed good time band, enjoy their new cd!

Behind the powerful vocals of Roz Hopson is the rock solid rhythm section of Rick Ellis on bass and Paul Carlomagno on drums, Bill Bjorstad and Dennis Parazak on guitar and Bill Houle doing double duty on saxophone and harmonica.

And come see them play or book them for your venue or engagement. Check out the web site for videos of the band, and where to see them next.

CD Review: North County Times, 1/18/07
Jim Trageser

An unlikely but very likable coupling of a straight-ahead blues band with a powerhouse R&B singer, San Diego's Black Bone Collective sounds a bit like a long-lost late '60s experiment ---- but without sounding dated. The five men playing behind singer Rosenilyne Hopson create a thick, swirling psychedelic electric blues (think Humble Pie or Savoy Brown), while Hopson has a classic soul sound as if she came out of Memphis, Detroit or Philly back in the day.

The band and Hopson combine on a jazzy arrangement to burnish "Willow Weep for Me" to a deep, luxuriant sheen (not sure which of the guitarists solos here, but it's a gem)….The traditionally styled "Riverside Blues" is probably the best of the band's own songs (and Hopson stretches out to the purest blues she sings here), and even its most memorable for the musicianship the band displays in playing it.

These six folks have got some serious chops musically, and as much as this disc sizzles, one can only imagine how good they must be live.

Linda Arnold

An unbelievably talented group of artists playing unique,fun-to-listen to music!
I LOVE this CD. There is nobody in Jersey playing music like this! I'm tempted to fly across the country to hear BBC live. The sound is new-a blend of everything I love...blues, rock, country...what talent...what fun to listen to. Don't pass this one up...

Nathan James

Good variety of moods
A good debut from this band. Good to hear a blues band doing original material instead of the same "top 40 blues covers!" Nice mix of riff and groove songs, with the mellower jazzy numbers. My favorite is Willow Weep for me, where the warmth of Rozz's voice shines through!!

As lowdown as suburban San Diego gets!
This CD has a lot of range, from the rude augmented guitar intro of "Love Gets Me High" to the down-home acoustic slide work on "Riverside Blues". In between there's jazz, rock, blues, and funk influences - nicely arranged, competently played and well sung. Instead of depressing "my baby don't luv me no mo'" cliches, BBC favors a brassy attitude and an irresistable danceability more reminiscent of Irma Thomas, Jamiriquois or Curtis Mayfield. My favorite cut is "Saxman". Bet these guys are great live!
