ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
2007 Winner International Blues Challenge
2007 Winner Albert King Best Guitarist Award

Sean Carney & The Nite Owlz

“Provisions - A Second Helping,” features the original CD re-mastered with three bonus tracks also recorded in 1997 with the same lineup that featured local luminaries John Popovich, David West, Edwin Bayard and Columbus’ Jazz Ambassador Gene Walker.

“Provisions – A Second Helping,” features the late Nashville R&B Queen, Christine Kittrell performing her final studio recording, “True Love Untold.” , her own composition. Kittrell, who passed away in Columbus in 2002, was a key figure of the Nashville R&B scene of the 1950’s and was recently featured in a major exhibit at The Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, Tennessee.
In addition, Willie Pooch, guitarist Ray Fuller and pianist Tommy Thomas, a veteran of the 1950’s Harlem music scene, guest on the CD.

“Carney possesses a working knowledge of T-Bone Walker’s music – its intricacies and dynamics – rivaling that of masters twice his age. I admire him sticking to his guns and being recognized on his own terms for the music he so obviously loves and respects… A strong recording for those blues aficionados who appreciate respectful detail to the way things used to (and still should) be.” – Vintage Guitar Magazine

“Like something from a hip time capsule. Excellent song selections help make Provisions top notch: Carney’s vocals are happening and guest shots from Willie Pooch and Christine Kittrell are something special. This band has it goin’ on!” – Blues Revue Magazine

“This set of tunes is hot and simmerin’. The cuts run the gamut from Lowell Fulson and Elmore James through Ike Turner’s Matchbox, and J.B. Lenior’s, I’ll Die Tryin’, and Johnny “Guitar” Watson’s, Oh Baby, follow in suit to give this disc that uppity, jumpin’ stylization. Carney’s guitar, the excellent horn arrangements and the chosen material push the jazzy, revue-like nature of the music. Good hoppin’ tunes with a swingin’ execution… not a bad tune on this biscuit!” - Big City Blues

Sean Carney, a guitarist from Columbus, Ohio, runs through a batch of well-chosen, lesser-known covers from sources that include Lowell Fulson, Robert Lockwood, Jr., Pee Wee Crayton, J.B. Lenior, T-Bone Walker, Gatemouth Brown, Elmore James, Johnny “Guitar” Watson and Columbus’ own Hank Marr. All are tastefully done with added interest coming from guest vocalists Willie Pooch on Bobby Bland’s It’s My Life, Baby and Christine Kittrell on her own True Love Untold. – Living Blues

“Sean Carney’s superb, keening guitar is like a Collins-King amalgam… He is a name to add to the classy end of the list and, I hope, one that will become a regular sight in blues journals.” – Juke Blues

Columbus Monthly "Best Band in Columbus" 2007

“Sean Carney…the city’s best blues guitarist.” – Columbus Alive!
