Lou DeAdder - Mister Eclectic


Mister Eclectic

This is the fourth CD from Ontario, Canada based singer and guitarist Lou, and as with its predecessors, it definitely gets the thumbs up. Lou is a blues guitarist, but equally, he is unafraid to ‘mix it up'. The opener is a fine example; is it blues or is it jazz? It is accomplished enough to please fans of both genres, I guess. Next up is a tough piece of funk-blues, then some more or less straight blues, with Lou’s cool singing throughout. ‘Drivin’ Down The Line’ is a blues, though with a curious riff that owes a lot to jazz and rock. As the CD title indicates, the set continues in this eclectic vein with blues, soul ballads, funk and even some country-rock. As the backing musicians include two horns, the famed blues harpman Carlos Del Junco and Bob Taillefer on pedal steel guitar, Lou always has the band to pull it off. How come no big label has signed this guy up yet? Buy this and be one step ahead.
