Mann: Live at The Ash
Grove International Purchase
all the young guitarists who turned to the blues tradition
in the 1960s, none was more brilliant and innovative than
Steve Mann. His few LPs are treasured rarities, but none
was rarer or more treasured than this live recording, on
which he ranges from Blind Lemon Jefferson to Ray Charles
to Mose Allison with an energy that is even funkier and more
exciting than on his few studio recordings. The sensitivity
of Steve's singing blends with the virtuoso guitar arrangements
in a performance that is as passionate and soulful as it
is technically astonishing.
