Album Notes
The Russell Barber Band is a San Francisco Bay Area-based Blues act paying reverence to American roots music from the 50’s and early 60’s. Russell Barber has honed his blues legend-inspired guitar playing while backing up local greats such as The NiteCreepers and Jimmy Dewrance Blues Band. Combining accomplished rhythm players Eddie B. on bass and Ron Chavez on drums, with local blues favorites Richard Rodriguez, Jimmy Dewrance, Johnny Cat and Thom Merida, you can be guaranteed that the band will sample from the best of American blues from Chicago to Texas to Memphis to New Orleans.

The Russell Barber Band – “Here Comes Trouble”
Those Blues fans who live in or visit the South Bay Area (the San Francisco Bay, that is) know that there is a long establish and top notch scene there. Any night of the week you can see quality live Blues at a variety of small venues. Very often the artist will have a CD for sale so that you can take home a little piece of the scene, which is just what I did the other night when I went to the Poor House Bistro to see Gary (the Godfather) Smith. Gary was accompanied by local guitar slinger Russell Barber and he had his CD on offer. I grabbed one of the few he had left.

When I get it home I was knocked out by quality of the recording, the many different cool guitar sounds and the depth of talent that was on the disc. Russell’s choice of musicians to help with this project was MONEY. Some of the highlights: “It Takes Time”, a Chicago box style tune with a cool blend of guitar sounds and styles between (local guitar legend) Johnny Cat and Russell. “Love My Baby”, a Sun rock-a-billy tune that was really well executed by Russell proving that he can seamlessly dip into other genres. “You Give Me Nothin’ But The Blues”, pulling from the South Bay’s deep pool of talented harmonica players, Jimmy Dewrance sings and blows soulfully over Russell’s haunting vibro-infused guitar tone. “Mother-In-Law Blues”, pulling again from the local talent, this time it’s Richard Rodriguez’ turn to sing this blues classic and belt out some killer harp (particularly crunchy tone on the harp – makes me wonder about how they recorded it!). “I Don’t Need It”, a cool Rumba beat. Russell delivers the vocals on this one with aplomb! This is a good time to note the killer rhythm section of Ron Chavez and Eddie B. Two ultra-well respected local vets. “Get Rich Quick”, had a nice boogie woogie upright style piano. This song really lends itself to Russell’s too-cool-for-school singing style. And the closing and title track “Here Comes Trouble”, a very cool instrumental track.

I have a dozen CDs or so from the South Bay locals and have yet to be anything less than really impressed with these players. If you’re in the area, go see a show! There will likely be no cover so you’ll be able to afford a disc, if available, and I can pretty much guaranty that you’ll dig it. I know you’ll dig this one!
