4 stars One man, one guitar, one voice and his ethereal Blues universe!

I must forewarn you! This could hardly be considered PROG!

This my friend, is called "The Blues" and in its purest form. So, maybe even "Blooders" , will feel kind of surprised! Yep! " Birthright", 2005, is master bluesman James "Blood" Ulmer's retribution to the MUSIC roots, that so encouraged him to be what he became.

Sitting down by himself, the skillful guitarist / flutist, composer James "Blood" Ulmer, takes on sigle handedly an intense and personal trip into the nakedness of the primal blues composition's style. Delivering an intimate repertoire of 10 new own pen-written songs (+ 2 covers), which masterful simplicity, could only be compared to the LEGENDS that brought on this musical style.

To name some references I will think of Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Lightnin' Hopkins and the beloved Willie Dixon (there is a cover of his trend-setting "I Ain't Superstitious".), just to suggest where this album heads on.

So I will address mainly BLUES and Rock followers, maybe some Jazz/Fusioners, and then any other curious Prog cat who may enjoy this kind of musical style.

I myself, grew up with the music of those legends. And James "Blood" Ulmer can stand alongside any of those masters, is his own earned " Birthright " to do so!

Easy ****4.5 PA stars!
