This is my new CD, the second one after “NORTH – EAST Blues”, the first with my full band. Mostly West Coast sound with a retro flavour in memory of my heroes like T-Bone Walker & Pee Wee Crayton. Just a trio with a second guitar without a piano and a horn section, but we tried to maintain at the same the old sound. Fourteen songs, eight originals like: the title track Katrina, Mark Slim shuffle, Tell me, what have I done wrong?, Hard times Blues, Blues for Sabrina…
This CD is dedicated to all the people in New Orleans, Louisiana who in August 2005 lost everything with the hurricane Katrina and to the memory of: Aaron “T-Bone” Walker (this year are 100 years from his birth), Connie Curtis “Pee Wee Crayton” and Goree Carter who inspired me to play guitar.
I hope you like it and to see you at the next gig in your town!!! Mark Slim
