Album Notes
ANGELS & CLOWNS by Nuno Mindelis, Produced by Duke Robillard featuring the Duke Robillard Band

JUST IN!...Stunning Reviews are coming in daily..check out what the critics are saying here..

“Long time Brazilian blues man Mindelis makes his American debut under the aegis of Duke Robillard who provides his band, sidekicks and producer’s vision. The two of them are a good match up as Mindelis comes in like a white, blues guitar shredder delivering strip mall blues club action that can give you a good night out and still have the baby sitter home early on a school night. Nice, solid, well played and produced contemporary blues that doesn’t need to kick ass to deliver the goods.” – Chris Spector MIDWEST RECORD

“Brazilian Blues/Roots guitarist, Nuno Mindelis released his debut album on Shining Stone Records …The album is produced by Duke Robillard and features Robillard’s band with special guest Sunny Crownover…Already considered a star in South America he has a worldwide reputation as one of the world’s finest guitarists...and that reputation is well-deserved. I have heard many great guitarists from all over the world and I have to agree wholeheartedly, this is some great stuff. ..the man is a master guitarist….This is one of those pieces that belongs in the collection of every fan of guitar .”
by Bill Wilson Blog

“Brazilian guitarist/vocalist Mindelis matches up his ebullient, blues-bound guitar work and understated, almost offhand vocal style with deceitfully simple but highly potent lyric sets… The Duke Robillard Band’s mellow funk backup provides an ideal finishing touch. Screaming for airplay is the instantly infectious leadoff track, “It’s All About Love”.” By Duane Verh Roots Music Report

“There’s some good ole gutbucket blues for the purists…“Blues In My Cabin” is a classic “my baby left me” rocker, while “Miss Louise” low-rides along a laid-back groove reminiscent of recently-passed legend J. J. Cale… one listen to Nuno Mindelis and “Angels And Clowns” will prove his talents are undeniable! Until next time” by Sheryl and Don Crow Blues Blog

“ “Hellhound” has a funky jazz rhythm and some pretty strong guitar riffs laid down on a cleanly executed bed of drums (Mark Teixeira), keys (Bruce Bears) and bass(Brad Hallen). “27th Day” is one of my favorite tracks having an unusual melody and instrumentation compliment. Mindelis plays clean melodic guitar runs ... On “Blues In My Cabin”, a standard 12 bar number, Mindelis sounds quite a bit like Clapton with smooth vocals and ringing guitar riffs.. Very cool” Bman’s Blues Report

“…if your ears haven’t yet met the one and only Nuno Mindelis, they just might be singing the blues… Angels & Clowns features the Duke Robillard Band (with an appearance by Sunny Crownover). It’s a solid album… the whole collection has a laid-back, comfortable groove to it … he offers thirteen originals that evoke the time he spent growing up and learning to love (and play splendidly) the blues. My favorite track on the album is “Perfect Blues.” … The guitar carries on a conversation that is nothing less than a love sonnet to the blues.” By Greg Victor Parbench

“Brazilian blues guitarist Nuno Mindelis has enlisted the aid of the Duke Robillard Band on his latest record Angels & Clowns… The music leaps from the speakers invading the listener’s ears with soulful rhythms and bluesy guitar riffs… You could compare it to the comfort of a home cooked meal, it makes you feel good. Give it a listen you will not be disappointed.” By Chris Martin Examiner
“…Nuno is just new to me, and his latest, Angels & Clowns is a blistering blues masterpiece…“My goal was to do that with good songs, and good melodies, and Duke Robillard — who is a pillar, a giant of blues guitar — also helped me create the best guitar and vocal performances I’ve ever recorded.” Critics have mentioned Mindelis in the same breath with Page, Hendrix and Stevie Ray, and I agree.”

Born in Angola, deep in the continent where Blues began, Nuno won the Guitar Player Magazine 30th anniversary Best Blues Guitarist award. Blues Revue noted that Nuno’s prior work “explodes with heavy, Hendrix-Vaughan guitar...undeniable technique.” In the United Kingdom, Blues Matters characterized Nuno’s playing as some of the “best blues guitaring around.”

Produced by Duke Robillard, Angels & Clowns takes Nuno’s music to a whole new level. This is where the Blues came from, and where the Blues is going.

“…Explodes with heavy, Hendrix-Vaughan guitar ... undeniable technique ... the playing throughout is imaginative, hard, fast and not for the faint of heart.” Blues Revue
