Mindi Abair – The Eastwest Sessions

September 2017

Let’s face it, everybody enjoys some good Sax!  Mindi Abair and the Boneshakers new CD, The Eastwest Sessions, shows us what one of America’s most outstanding saxophone players can do.  It not every day that you hear a saxophone player lead the band, and honestly, I miss it.  Mindi plays saxophone as good as anyone out there!  This new CD is outstanding from the first note to the last.  It is a real foot tapper and head-shaker!  Boneshaker in fact.  It has that much energy!  She has had eight solo CDs and they have hit #1 ten times on radio, seven times in the top five, and nailed down two top spots on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz album chart!  She has been nominated twice for a GRAMMY award and has played for Aerosmith, Bruce Springsteen, Keb Mo, and tons of luminaries!  With eleven cuts on this CD Mindi just rocks it.  Her saxophone playing is eye-opening and just flat out killer! www.mindiabair.com should get you there, and you should go.  This CD has already received accolades from all over the world and you need to listen to it.  Teaming up with Randy Jacobs on guitar and vocals, the band, The Boneshakers, are just marvelous!  Mindi doesn’t fool round.  She plays alto/tenor/baritone saxophones and vocals, and just knocks it out of the park.  The Boneshakers are outrageously good, and I just can’t find a weak spot on here.  If you love great music, and wonderful saxophone, dinner is being served!  Mindi Abair and the Boneshakers – The Eastwest Sessions.  Available on Amazon and ITunes, there you go!  This is a wonderful CD, just wonderful.  I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!  One love, blue barry – smoky mountain blues society.
