JOHN MAYALL - Sun Is Shining Down
Notify me when back in stock
On his latest album, The Sun is Shining Down, out January 28th via Forty Below Records, Blues legend John Mayall teams up with a stellar cast to deliver a funky soulful affair punctuated by brass, violins, harmonica and electric ukulele. Special guests include, The HeartbreakersÆ Mike Campbell, fast rising roots rocker Marcus King, Americana icon Buddy Miller, Scarlet Rivera of Bob DylanÆs Rolling Thunder Review, Chicago blues guitar mainstay Melvin Taylor and Hawaiian ukulele star Jake Shimabukuro. Also on hand are MayallÆs longtime dynamic Chicago rhythm section of Greg Rzab on bass guitar and Jay Davenport on drums with AustinÆs multi-talented and charismatic Carolyn Wonderland on guitar. Recorded at Robby KriegerÆs (The Doors) Horse Latitudes studio with Grammy nominated Producer Eric Corne, The Sun is Shining Down is MayallÆs 5th studio album for Forty Below Records, a fruitful partnership that began with 2014Æs A Special Life. ôI couldnÆt be happier with the new record,ö exclaims Mayall. ôI canÆt wait to share it with my fans. Each one of these special guests brings something unique to the album and our team works so well together. I think you can hear that chemistry in the music,ö raves Mayall. The album explores a range of styles and eclectic instruments. Scarlet RiveraÆs violin beautifully compliments two Mayall originals, the timely ôGot to Find a Better Wayö and a spirited reboot of the Mayall classic ôDeep Blue Seaö. Mike Campbell sounds like a natural born Bluesbreaker on the funky Bernard Allison cut ôChills and Thrillsö and Marcus King sizzles throughout the soulful ôCanÆt Take No More,ö another Mayall original. Buddy MillerÆs baritone tremolo guitar adds a unique and memorable flair to the Bobby Rush composition ôIÆm as Good as Goneö, while Jake ShimabukuroÆs electric ukulele is nothing short of astonishing on ôOne Special Ladyö. Melvin Taylor proves why heÆs been wowing Chicago blues audiences for decades on ôHungry and Readyö and ôDriving Wheelö and Carolyn Wonderland brilliantly concludes the record with a sensitive moving performance on the title track. As significant as each of these guest turns is, however, they canÆt overshadow MayallÆs own spirited vocals, iconic harmonica and lyrical keyboard work on The Sun is Shining Down. ôJohn shines throughout this album, exuding a joy and gratitude that are infectious. We all want to give that back to him,ö adds Producer Eric Corne.
