Album Notes
One of the things I love the most about the 2008 Blues For A Cure event program is so many generations were represented. We’re happy that theme continues on this Blues For A Cure studio recording with featured artists Henry Gray, Jonn Richardson and Trampled Under Foot. This session took place on Sunday, December 14, following The Blues For A Cure Festival that raised $10,000 for the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research at the Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital (in memory of Heather Pick) and The American Cancer Society.

We decided we wanted this release to support our cancer charities and our favorite musical non-profit organization, The Blues Foundation.

My reasons for this are personal. In the summer of 2007, I spent a week in Rochester Memorial Hospital as the victim of a brown recluse spider bite. Sean Carney Band booking agent Jo-Ann Freda appealed to the Blues Foundation on my behalf, as just one in a sea of uninsured blues musicians. The Foundation, through their HART Fund (Handy Artists Relief Trust), contributed significantly toward my hospital bill. The HART Fund and other programs such as the International Blues Challenge, The Blues Music Awards, Blues in the Schools and Blues Hall Of Fame, clearly illustrate The Blues Foundation is about supporting Blues artists and the future of this uniquely American art form.

Jonn, Nick and I endorse Category 5 Amplification. They were kind enough to provide guitar amplifiers for the event and this studio session, in addition to underwriting this release.

On this release, we wanted to emphasize The International Blues Challenge and Albert King Award Most Promising Guitarist winners Jonn Richardson (2005 with Diunna Greenleaf), Nick Schnebelen (2008) and myself (2007). With that theme in mind, we also utilized the talents of Trampled Under Foot, Bill Stuve, Steve Gerard, “King Saxe” Gene Walker, Jim Godin and Brian Duress.

We were overjoyed when Henry Gray and Andy Cornett agreed to participate in this session. Henry himself is a cancer survivor, and Andy lost both of his parents to cancer. Henry is a major architect of the classic Chicago Blues sound that developed in the 1950s on the famed Chess Records label. What an incredible honor to have the opportunity to record with Henry, along with my uncle David West who was my conduit to the Blues.

After performing at the BFAC concert with Hubert Sumlin and Henry Gray, followed by Trampled Under Foot, Jonn Richardson commented: “Henry and Hubert are our teachers, and it is so exciting they are sharing their music and encouraging us!”

Trampled Under Foot swept The 2008 IBC. There is no doubt these amazing young siblings are one of the most talented and exciting acts in the Blues today. The energy they brought to the session with soulful vocals and a superb rhythm section proved to be so much more than a rock solid platform on which to feature the Albert King Award winners.

I can’t count the number of times during this marathon session “cold chills” went down my spine, as I was deeply moved by the soul and talent so openly given by my friends in the name of battling cancer and Keeping The Blues Alive.

I would like to dedicate my work on this CD to my mother, Mary Hinson, in her brave battle with Hodgkins Lymphoma and to the memories of Shirley Spencer, Cal Baldi and Miles Carney. - Sean Carney
