Album Notes
The Mellow Downs were created as a recording band. John Flynn and Mark Jackson who had worked on previous projects together wanted to write original blues songs and create an album as an art piece. Mark gathered together a heck of crew - The great “Bad Brad” Karow with a huge San Diego blues and American roots background going back 30+ years, on drums. Gary Hutcheson on bass. Gary has played tight and groovin bass in rock and blues bands in L.A. and San Diego for 40 years. The fantastic Tom Mann (a Southern California blues legend) playing many styles of blues and jazz piano as he has been doing for decades. Mark Jackson is the singer and harmonica player in this group and is a highly talented song writer, crooner, harmonica player and all around blues man. John Flynn, San Diego blues and roots guitar player who has been on the scene for 25+ years and for the first time has begun writing original songs. Together this band recorded over the last year at Camp Karow Studios. The album which will be released in January of 2018, was recorded live with no overdubs or editing. The Camp Karow Studio captured a very natural and raw sound which we hope folks will like. The band is beginning to play shows now to support the album. The Mellow Downs name is an offshoot of a great Little Walter song called Mellow Down Easy. We hope the name conjures a mid-century style and feel, which as a band we prefer.
