Blackbird Music artist: Lucky Peterson Band featuring Tamara Peterson - Live At The 55 Arts Club Berlin - New Release Review I (CD/DVD)
The concert opens with the band playing an intro and the sound quality is spectacular. Peterson is brought on stage by guitarist Shawn Kellerman playing a beautiful butterscotch customized (If I was a betting man I'd say Nash) Nocaster. Peterson makes his way onto stage and behind his Hammond B3 (and Roland RD-700) singing the crankin' I'm Back Again. He makes introductions of the band and each player is distinct in the mix. I love it when a bass player cuts through the mix and is clean and Tim Waites is really pushing the bottom end on a beautiful spalted maple ESP LTD 6 string bass. Raul Valdez is a drummer's drummer keeping complex rhythms on the cymbals while keeping a crisp beat on what looks like Pearl drums. This is particularly noticeable on Smooth Sailing, a funky blues track. Peterson's voice is spot on and he really uses the organ effectively. Next up is the soul/gospel/blues style track, Trouble, and Peterson has the audience in his hands. This is an absolutely show stopping track. Peterson breaks from the organ mid song to strap on a white thin line hollow body Greg Bennett Samick guitar and rip a quick solo. He then breaks into a Freddie King inspired rockin' blues jam. Peterson enters the audience and shows everyone what a real muiti instrumentalist is! Peterson continues his concert sitting at a table in the audience playing Burnett's classic Little Red Rooster and then Dixon's classic You Shook Me. As you're sitting there with your mouth hanging open you're wondering... is this guy a singer, an organ player or a guitar player.
