Mark Cook - Blue Voodoo - 2006 - Wendster Records / Mec Jetlag

"BLUE VOODOO" is the musical comparison to the sky on a very clear and cloudless night....IT'S FULL OF STARS. Never have I listened to a CD and been this impressed with each and every performer. It breaks my heart to know that there are such talented people doing such talented things and the masses will never know about it. On the other hand, I'm thankful that I am one of the those that do.

A really good album of funk, Soul, R&B, roots blues, blues rock, Big Band Blues, Chicago Blues and even a touch of Latin and Jazz. Most of the musicians on this album are based in Atlanta, Georgia, and between them have played with artists that include Pat Travers, Derek Trucks, The Gap Band, The Ohio Players, Wet Willie, Keith Richards, Georgia Satellites, Lou Reed, Willie Nelson, The Pointer Sisters, Bobby Womack, Chubby Checker, Donna Hopkins, Francine Reed, Anthony Papamichael, Sean Costello, Taj Mahal, Susan Tedeschi, Deborah Coleman, Forrest MacDonald, E.G.

Born into a musical family, multi-talented electric blues guitarist Mark Cook grew up on the road, touring North America with his parents, who billed themselves as the Dale & Vicki Duo. Cook inherited his parents' gift and passion for music, namely the blues, and set out to become a serious musician after settling in Indiana at age 15. Since then, Cook furthered his masterful command of the guitar and also taught himself bass, piano, and production. Over time, he constructed a professional recording studio in his home, where he engineered, produced, and recorded his debut CD, An Evening With the Blues, in 2000. The album won acclaim, particularly from Just Plain Folks, a large music-industry organization, who voted it Best Blues Album of the Year 2001. Cook released his second album, The Promise Highway, in 2002. © Jason Birchmeier © 2012 Rovi Corporation. All Rights Reserved http://www.allmusic.com/artist/mark-cook-p527029/

Hi,Pierre. I only listen now to satellite radio, where I can hear specialized music genres. However, most people are still listening to MTV and the crap commercial radio stations which only cater for X-Factor type garbage. Too many kids are brainwashed nowadays, and we have to do our bit to change this. TTU soon...P
