Willie G: Buy

Fresh Cut

Willie G vocals; special guest artists, Guitar Shorty, Chris Burns, Carl Green and Dave Wellhausen.

This CD features special guest artists along with a wealth of blues musicians who perform in the San Francisco Bay area. Willie G is a soulful bluesman who is resourceful in his vocal lyrical approach, going from falsetto to yodeling.

The first cut says it all --
  • "Blues Singer"

  • There are a total of thirteen original tunes and this is straight-ahead blues. A tidy little offering which is worthwhile listening.

    The Lone Caroler

    Willie G: The Lone Caroler (Tropicana Records)

    If four years of Real Blues has taught me anything, it's that the less fluff and promo the better the CD. It may sound strange but these CDs usually become my permanent favorites, you know, the ones that will go with me to my grave. This couldn't be truer in the case of "The Lone Caroler." This CD covers my favorite holiday (second to Halloween... with a Screaming Jay Hawkins twist, of course) and funkifies it, makes it hip. Let's face it, most Christmas CDs are painful and tired and it takes a truly talented artist to pull it off. Willie G does that phenomenally and then some, leaving us with a CD destined to become a Christmas classic. It's not like this multi-talented man decided to sing about cheatin' or heartbreak, I have a feeling he could do that in his sleep, but he took on what Hollywood banks on every Christmas season, finding love on the holidays.

    "The Lone Caroler" contains 7 tracks all composed and arranged by Willie G and all 7 tunes are foxy with a capital F. His baritone vocals glide throughout the CD like velvety chocolate, leaving you with the feeling that Santa just left Marvin Gaye under your tree. Willie G's soulful vocals got that kind of effect. (Girls, you know what I mean!). -- Cheri Lynn
