multikulti.com:
Protegowany chicagowskiego bluesmana - Billy'ego Brancha debiutuje w najsłynniejszej na świecie bluesowej wytwórni płytowej - Delmark Records.
Gdy w 1997 roku został zaproszony do Billy Branch and the Sons of Blues, można było się spodziewać, że niebawem Giles Corey zadebiutuje z autorskim zespołem. Jednak po tym przyszły wspólne koncerty z Sylem Johnsonem i Buddy'm Milesem. W 2001 Corey trafia do zespołu giganta bluesa - Otisa Rusha.
W tym samym roku wspólnie z perkusista Rickiem Kingiem i pianistą Marty'm Sammonem powołują do życia formację Lubriphonic, z którą z sukcesem koncertowali w USA. Marty Sammon dość szybko jednak odszedł do zespołu Buddy Guy'a, po Lubriphonic pozostał tylko jeden studyjny i jeden koncertowy album.

Giles Corey's Stoned Soul to zupełnie nowa formacja tego utalentowanego bluesmana, warto było czekać tak długo na pierwszą płytę w Delmarku!

Giles Corey: śpiew i gitara, Marty Sammon: Fender Rhodes, Organy, fortepian, Joewaun Scott: gitara basowa i Rick King za perkusją. Skład uzupełniają Pat Otto na mandolinie i śpiewające w dwóch utworach Diane Madison, Mae Koen i Nanette Frank. Za brzmienie odpowiedzialni są doskonale znani bluesowej publiczności Steve Wagner i Dave Katzman.

Album wypełnia blisko godzina energetycznego bluesa najwyższej próby, podanego z energią, ale też ciekawym pomysłem. Trochę w tym blues-rocka, trochę soulu i melodyjnej ballady, a wszystko zagrane z wyczuciem i werwą.

Debiutancka płya Giles Corey's Stoned Soul dowodzi, że warto trzymać rękę na pulsie tego, co dzieje się w nowym bluesie!

Editor's info:
Giles Corey's credits include being in the bands of Billy Branch & the Sons of Blues and Otis Rush. Giles also played and recorded with Syl Johnson, Mississippi Heat and Buddy Miles. The talented singer/guitarist was a founding member of the funk/blues/rock & roll powerhouse Lubriphonic. When Lubriphonic stopped touring in 2011, the seed was planted for Stoned Soul, Giles' debut as leader. The band features Marty Sammon on keys, Joewaun Scott on bass and Rick King on drums. The album features eleven new originals and covers of "Don't Let The Green Grass Fool You", a 1971 hit for Wilson Pickett and Gary Clark Jr.'s "Bight Lights". Stoned Soul features a unique blend of roots music, rich in history yet contemporary and forward-looking.

If the name Giles Corey sounds familiar, it should. He’s been playing to tough crowds in the bars and clubs of Chicago for years now. He has also shared his guitar and vocal stylings with numerous artists including Mississippi Heat, Otis Rush, Magic Slim, Eddy Clearwater, and many more.

Giles Corey’s Stoned Soul is Giles’ Delmark Records debut as the leader of his own band. The album’s thirteen songs clock in at just under an hour, allowing listeners plenty of time to indulge themselves in the soulful treats it contains. Personnel here are Giles Corey – vocals and guitar, Marty Sammon – piano, organ, and vocals, and Joewaun Scott on bass. Rounding things out are Rick King on drums and percussion, Pat Otto on mandola, and on backing vocals we have Diane Madison, Mae Koen, and Nanette Frank. Production by Giles Corey is excellent, and the mix by Steve Wagner and Dave Katzman sounds superb.

We were hooked from the first few notes of the opener, “Oh, Mademoiselle,” which has a very interesting NOLA-meets-Chicago quality about it. Other favorites included “Morning Train,” which is pleasantly soulful, with Pat Otto adding a winning touch of texture with his mandola. Wilson Pickett sang “Don’t Let The Green Grass Fool You, ” but here it has more of a Jackie Wilson feel to it, and it sounds amazing. A Giles Corey (Andrew Osis) original, “Pork & Beans” has a great Edgar Winter vibe, and it kicks. On Gary Clark Jr.’s “Bright Lights,” Giles and company deliver an almost jazzy, soulful rending, with a touch of The Crusaders which is completely persuasive.

Still other inventive work here is “Watch Myself Go Crazy,” which will definitely remind listeners of the great Bob James and Earl Klugh with Sammon’s Fender Rhodes piano and Giles’ guitar. “That Girl Is Bad” is mover, with Leslie West style buzz-saw chording, and a thumping bass line. “Home Is On My Mind” has a swinging basso-nova style rhythm, and features dynamite soloing and comping form Giles.

The material on Giles Corey’s Stoned Soul is a great mix of blues and soul, played brilliantly, with panache. There is no half-stepping here friends. Giles took risks and came away with a stellar album. Everyone here in the office that walked by while this album played was taken with it. You will be too.
