Bio: Big Pete Pearson is Arizona's King of the Blues. He has ruled the Phoenix blues bars since the late 1950's. His physical stature and overwhelmingly strong voice command attention. Off stage, Pete can be found with a snifter of Christian Brothers brandy in hand as he joyously greets his many fans....See Full Bio
“Hot Ensemble Playing High-Quality Blues. Three years after his last CD, this blues singer has reappeared with a new band and a self-produced album, and the wait was worth it. First impression: Big Pete has lost none of the power and persuasiveness of his voice. Surprising for a singer with a gritty, raspy edge, he also commands a nice vocal range and can vary dynamics and volume to fit the needs of the song. Where this album most excels is with the band. As Butch Cassidy asked (or was it Sundance?), where did these guys come from? Italy, I’d guess, judging by their names: Gabriele Dellepiane on bass and Marco Fuliano on drums provide a granitic grounding throughout. Henry Carpaneto on piano is consistently inventive, with a sparkling touch, and Guitar Ray Scona on guitar (did you guess?) displays huge technical skill without stealing the spotlight — and does a credible singing stint on “The Love You Don’t Have”. Keep on bringin’ it, Big Pete! We like it!”
