Review

Reviewer: W. H. McDonald, Jr. – American Author’s Association Founder

R.J. MORRIS WAS BORN TO SING THE BLUES!

What a joy it was to get a copy of music CD “I’m Goin’ To Walk Away From The Blues.” Singer, composer and blues guru R.J. Morris really gives a down home old fashion, with a up-tempo beat, serving of the blues! There are 16 great cuts on this CD and all of them are “A” side recordings.

The pulsating sax and rhythmic piano playing is joined with some very sharp blues guitar picking and the beat of a soft drum. All this gives a mood filling background for a R.J.’s creative lyrics. The words could be compared loosely to a blues flavored Bob Dylan style. They are pure poetry and of course, being blues music, they chart the course for life’s hurting and pain.

This CD is just good listening even if you are in a good mood but if you are really feeling down and blue – this is your theme anthem done with class! Some of the song titles kind of tell the story like “Serving Life,” “Down For The Count,” and “Born To Sing The Blues.” The most enjoyable cut for me was “You Got The Dog”.

This is a stellar performance by R.J. and his band and well worth buying and listening to.


A Personal Message

If you like the Blues, if you have ever lived the Blues, or if you just wish someone you know could get the Blues, then I believe you will find something in my music you can relate with.

All sixteen songs on this CD were written by myself. I attempted to cover as many styles of the Blues as possible in composing this collection.

I will freely admit that my music is strongly influenced by those great Blues & Jazz people whose work I admire. The lyrics are probably a reflection of my own life experiences and observations, but again I have been strongly influenced by those same people and their styles. Having said that, I have not consciously tried to emulate anyone else or their material. What you hear is myself singing the Blues I created in my own style.

Whether you are a stone cold fan or you’re just sampling the Blues for the first time, I hope you will enjoy my music as much as I enjoy creating and performing it.

Please visit my Web site at http://www.rogerjmorris.com and send me an email. I promise to respond. I look forward to meeting other Blues lovers and making new friends!

I have been playing music to the tastes of a myriad of souls for over 30 years and I have often marveled at the God Given talent of RJ Morris when he had a guitar in his hands.

I first met him 30 odd years ago when he & his pals had one of the top C&W bands on the European circuit

I had the pleasure of being in the studio with him during his cutting of an album of 'Home Grown Country' songs that he had written and I remember then thinking that they had the hint of the blues.

After listening to his latest, and in my humble opinion - greatest, work - I see that he has mastered the craft of creating songs in the genre of "The Blues".

This is great ORIGINAL Blues any Blues fan will love!
It's hard to believe that Roger wrote these songs himself. They flow into the ear with all the timeless rythm that Blues fans have been listening to in St. Louis. New Orleans, Chicago, and on Beal Street in Memphis for decades. It is refreshing to hear something original as opposed to the same couple dozen worn out favorites. You'll swear you've heard it before, but it just ain't so! Got to pay your dues? Roger Morris obviously has.
