Israeli blues guitarist/singer, Andy Watts recently released his third full length album titled Supergroove. It's a fitting title because Watts lays down some super grooves through out this ten track lp.
The album kicks off with the song "Supergroove" which is an upbeat blues instrumental that features some lavish fret-work from Watts.
"Living Hand To Mouth" starts off with some nice harmonica playing and has a "Sweet Home Chicago" vibe to it.
The album has a variety of blues tunes on it, from instrumentals, to up beat jams, to some cover songs and some traditional slow blues. Blues Hall of Famer, Joe Lewis Walker even lends a hand on the slow, simmering tune "Burning Deep," which for me is the highlight of the record.
Freddie King's "Pack It Up" is a solid cover and Watts' original tune, "Don't Take The Blues Away" fits nicely in the middle of the record.
The album ends with another fine cover of the late Peter Green's "Supernatural."
If you are the fan of the blues, Supergroove by Andy Watts is worth checking out.
