Mudbones Blues Review is the brainchild of Durham harp player Butch “Mudbones” Haas. His vision was to create a blues band that would keep even the most timid dancers on their feet all night long. He is joined by journeyman musicians from the Durham blues scene. Mudbones performs original and standard blues and R&B songs inflected with mojo from the 1960’s. The sound is delicately layered, and punctuated with soulful singing and melodic solos. The jazz-influenced rhythm section provides the foundation for a tightly-knit ensemble which delivers many pleasant surprises.
