Simple Case of the Blues
The Last Music Company
Rosie Flores has been making a name for herself for the past four decades, and a variety of musical genres assure that she resists being pigeonholed. Working over the years in both California and her native Texas she has run played country, rockabilly, and punk — all behind her exceptional guitar work and soulful vocals. But she has always had a special place in her heart for the blues. Her latest release, Simple Case Of The Blues, proves she knows it well.
Recorded in Nashville and Austin, with production from Kenny Vaughn, Dave Roe and Charlie Sexton, she pieced together a remarkable combination of musicians to compliment the music, including Cindy Cashdollar, Greg Izor, Mike Flanigin, T Jarrod Bonta, Greg Williams, and Jimmy Lester. The music comes from multiple directions, but Flores captures all with just the right approach. Three original numbers sit alongside compositions by the likes of Roy Brown, Dwight Yoakum, and Wilson Pickett. The slide guitar work on “Steve Winwood’s “Can’t Find My Way Home” is a pure delight. Great disc from a spot-on pure talent!
