Biography

Bob Brozman picked up a guitar at the age of 5 and even at that young age was showing a fascination with repeating melodies and their subtle progressions of rhythm and timbre. Aged 12, Brozman’s interest in blues lead him to discover the National guitar and he subsequently launched a quest for any music made on the instrument, discovering Hawaiian music and a variety of jazz styles in ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly first rate December 10, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Okay, first for a disclaimer: I'm a National guitar junky. (Whenever you read a review about a Bob Brozman project, you have to separate the resophonic guitar geeks from those who just like good music. The former just can't retrain their praise for this man's musicianship, but it might not suit the needs of the later.)

First, as always, you have to ignore Bob's singing style. It's sort of cross between Dean Martin and someone playing the saw. (Maybe not exactly Dean Martin, but definitely a saw.) He reminds me of Leon Redbone, the guy who did the beer commercials in the 1980s. I mean, if a band needed just a lead singer, Bob wouldn't get the call. Sorry, Bob....

But, I must say that on several tracks, Bob restrains the strange vocal lilt he brings to his songs. I'll bet this was unintentional, but it was a relief because sometimes his singing gets in the way of the lyrics, and of course his great ability at playing several instruments.

Now, why did I give this new CD four stars?

First, with all the turmoil in the world, much of it caused by our country, Bob has produced a genuine protest album! The opening songs, Follow the Money and Look at New Orleans, two Brozman originals, express the anger of millions of Americans. (Too bad only a few thousand will probably hear these songs.) And the playing in Look at New Orleans is quite haunting. Kudos, Bob!

Next, (well, a couple of tracks later), Bob switches gears and plays a swing number called Shafafa. Follow that with Lonely Children (the title says it all) and Three Family Blues (a song about the effects of war), and you see that Bob has some things to say, and his lyrics do it very well.

The entire CD contains displays of Bob's amazing musicianship.

5.0 out of 5 stars "...the looks we get are cold." December 5, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The Bob Brozman & Ruf Records brotherhood is now a very impressive 3 for 3. What a great album!

Post-Industrial Blues is where Live in Germany and Blues Reflex meet Bob's worldview put into words (though not every song is "political"). We're also bathed in top-shelf playing/composing/arranging, and his touch/tone on some of my favorite instruments.

The old english 7-string banjo does a ton for this album (though it's not on every track). Old Man's Blues mixes the banjo with the sanshin (Takashi's main instrument on Jin Jin/Firefly and Nankuru Naisa) to great effect. Who'd have thought that a sanshin and an old english banjo would bring late-years Docks Boggs to my mind? Fresh from its starring role on Lumiere, the little baglama also appears beautifully on Lonely Children.

With Look at New Orleans and Three Families Blues we get 2 original lyrics that may even surpass Rolling Through This World (still a favorite here in its 4th cd and/or dvd appearance in the past 5 or 6 years) for heavy emotional power. Beautiful, important stuff. Forget "politics". This is about people and compassion before profit. And most importantly for an album of music, they're songs I love.

This is Bob's album of the year for me. From the songs/music to the recording quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious Blues Triumph November 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This one seals the deal. Bob Brozman is a freakin' genius! I love every album this guy ever made, but he's topped himself here. This is one rompin' stompin' blues-jazz-roots record. Brozman may not be the greatest blues singer in the world, but he makes up for it one hundred percent with his instrumental abilities, and extraordinary composing and arranging skills (most of the material here is original). And his vocal work happens to be better here than it's ever been. There is not a track on this album that is anything less than perfection, so I'll just single out a few stunners:

The first three tracks: Brozman's music has always had something to say. Now we hear from the man himself; I'm sure his political opponents will hate this album, but its production values are only the start when describing the music itself. An avid guitar enthusiast and expert on National Guitars, this guy can play several instruments with skill and emotion. The blues is real, but he's hip and contemporary. I never cared what his political views were, so knowing them now only cements my relationship with this guy's artistry. Anyone opposed to this guy's opinions, will of course object to the lyrics, but those who merely dislike political discourse of any stripe in their music, have no fear. The man's touch is light, and often filled with humor. No dour folk troubedour, he, Mr. Brozman rocks and rolls his way through these opening numbers, never letting up from then on. He had me hooked right away, so the wild variety of styles that followed had more than a chance.

For this guy takes risks. His first openly political album, yet Brozman knows that the music itself doesn't have to depress to get the message across.
