Album Notes
***Visit Emilio's myspace website for more current info @ www.myspace.com/emiliocrixell. Last year Emilio joined Guitar Shorty's band on the road & has now teamed up with "The Jazzmanian Devil", saxaphonist Tomas Ramirez to form Los Bluzanos in his home state of Texas.

The straight ahead, hard driving, stripped down sound of rock & roll and blues in the classic roadhouse tradition gets kicked into high gear with tasty guitar licks, memorable riffs, and a cast of groove oriented players.

One listen and you're instantly transported to a roadhouse where the smoke is as thick as the smell of stale beer, sawdust covers the floor , neon signs line the walls, and you don't even care that your sleeves are stuck to the muck on the bar because the place is jumping to barrelhouse rhythm & blues.

It's in this atmosphere that Crixell (pronounced Crishell)cut his musical teeth as a kid in and around Texas and what he's captured so effectively on the tracks of "One Roadhouse Away", a foot stompin', spirited collection of barn burnin' rockers and soulful blues tunes.

Having resided in San Francisco for the past 2 decades, Emilio handpicked this group of musicians from his long time Bay Area favorites, Henry Salvia on keyboards; Peter Booras on drums; and Endre Tarczy on bass.

Recently Emilio has moved back to his home state of Texas and has enjoyed time on the road playing with the legendary Guitar Shorty and is currently playing around South Texas with his new band Los Bluzanos. For more info visit www.myspace.com/emiliocrixell.

The Blues is authentic when the music reflects the life of the artist. This is
The Blues is authentic when the music reflects the life of the artist. This is the real deal. Emilio Crixell's One Roadhouse Away captures the emotion and experience that we admired in the masters like Muddy, Robert Johnson, Howlin' Wolf and others whose music inspires and informs so much that has come since. Emilio learned his craft well. Right from the opening track, with clean guitar riffs that would have made Stevie Ray Vaughan proud, your ears are engaged and ready for a set of music that connects directly to the heart.

Van Vaughn

In the finest tradition of the great Texas Blues men.
If you close your eyes you can almost the chicken wire cage protected the band. Emilio captures the essence of Texas blues that grew up on the Jaxboro Highway and Liberty Hall. This album is in the the tradition of Texas' best.

Jack Mullins

Stompin' blues-rock!
Emilio's CD is an audio force to be reckoned with! Gutsy groove-oriented blues-rock, punctuated with gritty, firey leads. But perhaps the highlight is the delicate "Lighthouse" which deserves to be a hit. This is a killer CD and I'm looking forward to hearing more from this artist.

Voice from the past

So glad to hear that you are doing great!
I feel privelaged to say I once jammed with you.
I didn't know that you dropped the Bass. From the reviews it sound like you are one great blues guitarist.
I visited your "My Space"
Great collection of photographs. Drop a line once in a while.
