Murali Coryell: Live Review

Live is the latest release by guitarist/vocalist Murali Coryell, which contains a CD and a DVD of live performances at Club Helsinki and Roots & Blues.  Coryell is a talented guitarist, clearly inspired by Jimi Hendrix and lays down two sets of great original blues, not neglecting his pop and rock influences.  Coryell is also a very talented vocalist, with a smooth and beautiful voice, equally capable of delivering powerful performances of 1960s soul and driving blues.

The first set gets off to a great start with Coryell’s “In the Room With Jimi.”  Coryell’s guitar playing shines throughout this first disc, as does the saxophone playing of Stacey Waterous.  The only complaint about this first disc is that the saxophone gets buried in the mix from time to time.

The second set, on DVD, is just as nice as the first, featuring a number of solid Coryell originals, along with a cover of Sam Cooke’s “Bring it on Home to Me.”  The bottom line is that Coryell delivers two outstanding live sets.  If the listener enjoys hearing extended instrumental solos, as are common in live sets, this album is sure to please.

The Review: 8.5/10

    But the Marshall’s cowardice only led to a quick and embarrassing death
    at the hands of the bandits, who had demanded Dan Evans and his party to give up Ben Wade, in exchange for their own freedom.
