ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
COLORS was written and recorded on four continents: it reflects the constant research of sounds and emotions that drives Sugar Blue’s creative force.
The songs are diverse in the concepts and eclectic in the delivery.
The opening track is a tribute to Bo Diddley co-written with Nick Tremulis (Rick Danko/The Band). Guitar work by the usual suspect: Rico McFarland (James, Cotton, Lucky Peterson, Albert King, Tyrone Davis,…) long standing member of the Sugar Blue Band and instrumental in the funk and soul sounds throughout the album.
“Day Tripper” (The Beatles) delivered Chicago-style, with an arrangement inspired by the late great harmonica Maestro Junior Wells.
"Dirty Ole Man” is a classic blues and a rebuttal of toxic masculinity. Drummers Brady Williams and Yan Boodhoo provide the rhythm foundation with bassists Ilaria Lantieri (co-writer and arranger on some of the tunes) and Maestro Johnny B. Gayden, legendary member of the Albert Collins band and historical session man. 
“Bass Reeves” is the tale of the Lone Ranger from the famed TV show…. a liberated slave turned US Marshall.
Finger picking maestro Max De Bernardi provides the fine guitar work on “Good Ole Days”, New Orleans’ own Washboard Chaz is in charge of the rhythm. Song of hope “We will be alright” features Afrika Riz, young choir from Soweto, South Africa. 
Talented Damiano Della Torre (Pavarotti, Miriam Makeba, Tom Jones) is in charge of piano and organs. “Shanghai Sunset” is a soulful ode to a vibrant metropolis and features the ‘Sheng' …an ancient chinese reed instrument from which the harmonica descends.
