ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"James Taylor sometimes deceives himself into thinking he’s got the blues. If Sweet Baby James actually had them—or, more accurately, understood them—he’d probably sound a lot like guitarist Marty Christian, whose debut Bluesicana can’t help but come off genial and uplifting, even in the midst of heartbreak and/or seduction. The 10 originals here (accompanied only by Joseph Edwards’ rubboard) comprise the most jovial blues album to come out of the Sportsmen’s Paradise in many a year. Example? The song “My Mistakes” is all about how Marty can get past them..." - Robert Fontenot, Offbeat, New Orleans, Louisiana, Jan 2007

CD never wears out
This is a great cd that makes you dance and move around when you hear it. Marty Christian is an excellent singer and person. I have seen him play a few times and was always pleased with his performances. He has such a soulful voice. His has a sparkling personality and it comes out in his music. He also plays a mean guitar.

Marty Christian is an excellent writer and great talent!!!
After listening to a sampling of this CD online, I knew I was going to buy it....and did so immediately. The quality of the recording is very professional and the music which it contains most excellent. What a refreshing sound and style. Eric Clapton said blues is the hardest music style to play because you have to reach so far within yourself to bring it out. Bluesicana most certainly showcases a heartfelt talent who is passionate aabout his art and Marty has indeed tapped into that part of self that Clapton was talking about.
