The American bluesman Gypsy Carns has just released a previously unreleased instrumental album, titled "Tango Blues", in which explores several characteristic sounds and timbres of the roots of the blues. The musician is based in Meridian, Mississippi, region that was the birthplace of the musical rhythm and which housed its first great names, such as the legendary Robert Johnson. And to further enhance the "rural climate" of the album, it was recorded at Stump Whipped Studios, wedged between several acres of forest in the city of Porterville, also in Mississippi.
"Tango Blues" was co-produced with Chris Sharp, and Gypsy played the whole arsenal of instruments, which in addition to acoustic guitars and guitars also featured harmonica, tambourine and other more unusual, as rain stick, washboard and rattlesnake tails (which mimics the rattle of a rattlesnake). The traditional battery has also been replaced by indigenous and African percussion instruments. About this unique sounding, he only commented in the liner notes: "this time the Lord led me on a journey of transcendental blues."
Another detail of the CD is that the names of the songs are tributes to family and friends. "Angel Caroline" and "Moon & Stars" are dedicated to his wife, Caroline Carns. "Ezra Fire Wheel" honors the grandson Ezra Seale, while "Jacinda" is dedicated to his daughter, Jacinda Cans Seale.
Graciously, the production of Revolusom Radio received two copies of the CD Tango Blues via mail, direct from Meridian, Mississippi, with dedication of Gypsy Carns. Thank you for the love and support of our work! Hug and God bless you!
Time: despite the name, the CD does not have any musical reference to Argentine tango, it is only the purest root blues of Mississippi.
