Biography

Although he's often skirted the edges of blues music, at heart, saxophonist, keyboardist and composer Edgar Winter is a blues musician. Raised in Beaumont, TX, the younger brother of ukulele player and guitarist Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter has always pushed himself in new directions, synthesizing the rock, blues and jazz melodies he hears in his head. As a consequence, his fan base may not ... Read more in Amazon's Edgar Winter Store

Editorial Reviews

Since his debut album Entrance in 1970, Edgar Winter has always been a musical visionary, mixing and synthesizing the rock, blues and jazz melodies he hears in his head. The younger brother of guitar legend Johnny Winter, Edgar has been a prolific artist and worldwide superstar. From the mega-hit Frankenstein, to the bluesy classic Tobacco Road, Winter has never been a follower, just a true leader. With his latest release REBEL ROAD, Edgar Winter manages to rock pretty righteously. Beginning with the title Rebel Road, Eye On You, and the ultimate party hit The Power Of Positive Drinking, the band with the help of brother Johnny Winter moves in into the excellent blues scorcher Rockin' The Blues. The album which is painted with highlights from the substantial saxophone & keyboard talents of Winter, not to mention some of his finest singing recalls the best of his work with the Edgar Winter Group. Like They Only Come Out At Night album, this recording includes a pair of haunting ballads, The Closer I Get and Peace And Love. Do It Again, along with Horns Of A Dilemma, showcase Edgar Winter doing what he does best - rocking out with passion and lots of drums and guitar. Welcome back Edgar Winter.

By Steve G

Simply put, this is a great CD!.....really not a weak track on it....Edgar's in great voice throughout (as good or better then he has in years).....songs and production are first rate.....the band is *killer*....and he clearly demonstrates his ability to play with musicians across a wide range of generations.....even has a few songs that have what it takes to be big hits!.......COME ON!.....PLAY THIS GUY ON THE RADIO!!!!....with all the crap that's being passed off as music these days *this* is a breath of fresh air!!!....you owe it to yourself to buy this CD!

4.0 out of 5 stars So-So June 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The CD is well produced with a couple of catchy tunes, but most of them are a little bland and pedestrian. Not enough sax or piano for my liking.
All the years of Edgar's screaming seemingly has finally taken a toll on his voice.
He can still sing, but sadly just does not possess the golden throat he once had. I closed my eyes while listening to a couple of the tunes and really could not tell that it was Edgar Winter - bummer.
I would probably give the CD a 3, but since it's Edgar I rated it a 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Edgar Winter And Guests Deliver The Goods August 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
On REBEL ROAD, Edgar Winter, working with such guests as his brother Johnny and Slash on guitars, and Clint Black on vocals, delivers real music that's a breath of fresh air in a world full of angst-rock and Hannah Montana. Combining his love of blues and soul with modern sounds and styles, Winter, who's visually impaired, once again proves that a disability doesn't need to be a handicap.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice Effort, But The Songwriting is Weak January 1, 2009
Format:Audio CD
EW still sounds pretty good, and the band is decent, but the songwriting is pretty ho-hum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Rock and Roll is BACK! September 20, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I first played this record I thought it would be another "OK"
record from a great artist, WRONG!!! It is the Rock Album of 2008!!!!!
The title track says it all about the record "Back on then road again" Slash's opening powercords a perfect for this song (Rebel road). This record will have you rocking right out of the gate and doesn't stop. The song "Rocking the Blues" you guest it, None other than Edgars Brother Johnny Winter, doing what he does best,"TEARING IT UP" If you wanted to compare this record to any other Edgar Records start with "They Only Come out at night" or "Shock Treatment".

Thanks Edgar & Company for the best Rock Album of 2008!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Texas Tornado August 13, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
He still has it! Great vocal range and variety of songs and genres. It's refreshing to be able to hear this kind of music with all the crap that's out there these days.
I hope Edgar continues to be blessed with the golden cords he has and wish he and his wife a very happy future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Edgar rocks December 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've followed Edgar throughout his career and I appreciate his rockers and ballads most. This album delivers on both fronts. This isn't the album for the folks who like Edgar's funk and spacy offerings. There's none of that here. This album rocks from beginning to end, except for a couple of excellent ballads which demonstrate that Edgar's voice is still in fine form. The songwriting is strong with excellent hooks and strong playing. On the rockers, I would have preferred Edgar's voice up in the mix a bit. Guitars are featured here and Edgar's keyboard work is minimal. Slash contributes a stellar solo on the first track.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Alltime Favorite Edgar WInter collection January 27, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Edgar's music, no matter the style, I love his jazzy stuff, especially his bluesy stuff, even the pop stuff is great, but this one beats them all as per my taste. I couldn't believe the pounding blues coming out of ole' Edgar at a time in his career when most people are fading out. Hope there are many more, check out "Horns of....." with Edgar and Clint Black on harmonica!!!!!!!!!
