Album Notes
Milwaukee’s perennial favorites, The Blues Disciples have done it again. Their new release, Big Beat is a juggernaut of powerful tunes by the band known for their exciting live performances.

Big Beat is the second studio release from The Blues Disciples. The cd consists of 12 songs, 10 new original songs along with two of the bands favorite cover tunes. From shuffle to funky to swing, and all points in between, this new cd is diverse, yet cohesive as the bands eclectic nature emerges in the studio as it does on stage.

“Barefoot” Jimmy Schwarz on the harp and lead vocals once again delivers killer vocals through the cd as well as searing and soothing harmonica Guitarist Paul Stilin steps out once again displaying the mastery of guitar tone and tasty chops that has brought him to the top of his craft. Chris Lehnert delivers a fresh keyboard feel with the traditional sounds of hammond organ and piano, as well as Wurlitzer organ. The foundation of the entire feel is laid down by Milwaukee's finest drummer, Matt Liban. His rhythms drive each song with energy and excitement.

The Bass lines have been laid down by three of Milwaukee's finest purveyors of low frequency. The Milwaukee legend Rick Holmes lays down the funky grooves that have made him famous in Milwaukee for decades. Amy Ashby contributes the beautiful solid and round bass tones of the more traditional material, and Matthew Wilson (John Nemeth) provides a stunning blend of traditional and "greasy" in laying down some of the most fluid and joyful tones imaginable.

This cd is also not short of special guest talent... Billy Flynn (bands to numerous to mention) the legendary Chicago guitar man contributes 4 wonderful tracks to this disc. His energy and warmth are unmistakable and go to show why he is such a popular contributor to so many blues albums. Reverend Raven (Reverend Raven and the Chain Smoking Alterboys) makes an alumni appearance with the band on 2 tracks. Reverend Raven was a part of the Blues Disciples "back in the day" and has long been a supporter of the band. He contributes 2 stinging guitar tracks to the effort. Danny Moore (Reverend Raven) the WAMI award winning keyboardist absolutely tears up the piano on several tracks, as well as making you cry on the slow one!

This Self-Produced cd comes with a quality of production, performance, and writing that rivals any of the mainstream labels. Made with passion, for real people, by real people!!
