вЂњHomecomingвЂќ, the new CD from legendary keyboardist and three time Blues Music Award Nominee. Bruce Katz, is the culmination of a lifetime of touring and recording Blues, Roots, and Jamband music. It marks a вЂњhomecomingвЂќ of his own вЂ“ a return to his own music after several years of high profile sideman gigs with Gregg Allman, Delbert McClinton, John Hammond and others.
This blues-drenched album combines vocals and instrumentals with a power- packed roster of guest artists from BruceвЂ™s present and past, including John Hammond, Randy Ciarlante and Jimmy Bennett.
BruceвЂ™s exciting approach to the Hammond B3 organ is featured on this album, playing fiery solos even while laying down the bass lines on the organ. The band members have all played together for years and achieve an original group sound that is as tight as it is fresh sounding.
вЂњHomecomingвЂќ features brilliant and virtuosic playing from all of the musicians, but most importantly keeps the emotion and soul of the music in the forefront. This CD of mostly original music creates a sound like no other, one that is uniquely the Bruce Katz Band.
