Uptown Blues is the latest album from Ramon Goose. This singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer is extremely talented and it shines through on this album. Uptown Blues is filled with colorful dynamic and variation.
The album starts out with an upbeat tune called “Delta Moon.” The catchy vocals, solid guitar, and laid-back horns in the background, make for a gripping start to the album. Slowing it down in the middle of the album, Ramon shows a soft and sultry style of blues in a song called “Taste of Honey.” The piano and saxophone in the song show a bit of a jazz influence.
Among all of Ramon’s talents, the one that shines the most is his guitar playing. The song “Testify” is an instrumental blues that starts out with a high-energy guitar riff and leads into a guitar solo. The entire song is about Ramon’s guitar playing and it is really outstanding. Throughout entire song, the guitar wails and even though there are no vocals, the guitar speaks for itself.
Uptown Blues is a promising album and it is clear that Ramon’s strong suit and passion is in his guitar playing.
