BUDDY GUY – RHYTHM & BLUES has just been released as of July 30th 2013, Buddy’s 77th birthday. The double-disc album was produced and written by Tom, who also played drums, percussion & sang background vocals on the album. USA Today gave a glowing review of the album, giving it 4 out of 4 stars. The NY Times says “Mr. Guy might well be the best bluesman alive. His voice shows no wear from a five-decade career; it can proclaim, taunt, moan, rasp or ache. His guitar solos might erupt as frenzies of wah-wah, searing melodies or terse, viciously slicing epigrams. He’s well aware of his place in blues history yet by no means ready to rest upon his achievements. Whether he’s singing about his mother’s advice or the eternal blues staple, woman trouble, Mr. Guy hits home.”
