ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Johnny Blue Horn's music runs the gamut of American musical styles. Not content with being typecast in a particular genre, he brings forth soulful interpretations of songs by Allen Toussaint, Lou Rawls, Z.Z. Hill, and others, with a touch of vocal whimsy and his emotionally expressive blue trumpet. Included on his debut Black Rose Records album are four original songs that blend into this mixture seamlessly. A supporting cast of some of Boston's top performers includes the core band of Bobby Gus on guitar, Sven Larson on bass, Jim Heffernan on keys and Steve Bankuti on drums, plus contributions from Ed Scheer, Brian Templeton, Diane Blue, Lisa Marie, Amanda Cote, John Juxo, Amadee Castenell and Jeff Giacomelli.

Bostonian

Horn of plenty!
I’ve been lucky enough to see Johnny Blue Horn perform live in and around Boston for many years, and also on the stages of Buddy Guy’s Legends club in Chicago and B.B. King’s in New York City, and have been waiting for him to finally find the time to record an album. It is clear that “It’s What I Do” is done extremely well!
This is simply a superb debut CD with first-rate production and great supporting players. Johnny first caught my attention with his trumpet mastery, playing New Orleans style brass with Boston area bands. The first time I heard him fronting his own band, The Caretakers, I was blown away by his voice and his stage presence.
On this album, he aces all of the blues, R&B and soul stylings that make that band a phenomenon. His covers of Lou Rawls (“A Natural Man”), Three-Dog Night (“Brickyard Blues”), and the Leiber-Stoller classic “Destinations Love“ show his mastery of those styles as he puts his own stamp on them.
You can tell this album was recorded New Orleans style, with all the band playing together at once. No overdubbing, no Auto Tune, just Johnny in the front singing and playing his trumpet as he does on stage. Bravo!
