“This CD was inspired by two acoustic CDs by Lurrie Bell, "The Devil Ain't Got No Music" and "Second Nature" with his father Carey Bell. It isn’t just the music that moves me in these CDs. The sound of the recording and mix has an atmosphere naked and natural that lets me sink into the beauty of the blues. I wanted to create the feeling that you’re in our home listening to us live. I also wanted the music to have a natural in the moment groove. We recorded songs when we were inspired and encompassed all aspects of our diverse international group. The simple duo & trio roots blues and the subtle edge between it and old jazz, as well as full band Electric and Jump Blues. We all stretched a little out of our comfort zones to give each artist a moment in their niche, the result being rich surprises. Given by the flexibility of an auto-production, we took risks in the recording process. “Trouble No More” was recorded at Twins Studio all live in one take, “Fever” was recorded sitting on the edge of the bathtub and you may hear an occasional train pass on “Slow Down”. We took our time to get it right with what we had to work with which was mostly creativity and experienced musicians. There were many doubts as to whether I could match the sounds of many spaces and microphones, put different genres of blues and jazz side by side or create a CD with songs in duo and trio with a very fat sounding band, but that’s what our group is, so I had faith. The mix took a lot of work, but I knew the mastering would be the key. By chance, Blaise Barton the Grammy winner who did the engineering, mixing and mastering for one of the CDs that inspired this process was available to bless our CD with his talents, and that he did. We learned a lot through this process. You have to take some risks to find rich surprises. “ Lil’ Red

We'd like to thank our friends and family for their never-ending love and support and a special thanks to Diunna Greenleaf & Lurrie Bell for paving a path of inspiration for this CD.
