“THE GIL CORREIA BAND Tattoo’s & Blues 7 tracks This is the band you want to have playing when you are out partying at a blues bar. Growling guitar at a loud volume, backed by powerful drums and held together by a solid bass that results in both impressing and leveling the listener at the same time. Gil plays guitar with a great, nasty tone, Dave Baker on drums/percussion and four-stringer Scott Cormier play Chicago blues like they are natives of the Prairie State. My favorite songs are the opening cut “The Rattlesnake Hop” with its biting guitar, “Taken It Back” with guest harpist Gregg Mackenzie blowing nicely, and the final composition by Lightning Hopkins “Too Many Drivers” with it’s sexual lyrics: “I’m in love with you honey/ I just want to drive your automobile.” If you’re into Ronnie Earl, Kid Bangham, and Ricky “King” Russell, this CD is for you. If you like jump blues go see these cats perform live; this CD is hard to stop playing.”
