ABOUT

Joe Colombo is a blues guitarist recognized as a virtuoso of the slide-guitar. Already alongside American singer Terry Evans since 2005, Colombo is now a solid presence on the national music scene and beyond. Colombo’s slide-technique belongs to the delta-blues but his playing definitely categorized him as high-energy blues act. He defined his style through several record productions since 2002. All instrumental “Natural Born Slider” (released by the Italian label “Comet/Horizons”) impressed the critics and gave him the opportunity to debut on the double release tribute to Jimi Hendrix, “Voodoo Crossing” and “Gypsy Blood”, along with international artists, such as Robben Ford, Steve Lukather, Larry Coryell and Hiram Bullock. His new album “StratoSlider” (2017) entirely devoted to the electric slide-guitar is made up of 8 original tracks plus an arrangement of the traditional “St. James Infirmary “. The new record includes stylistic references that pay tribute to the great Texas guitarist Johnny Winter to whom the song “Johnny D.” is explicitly dedicated and songs that are about today’s delta-blues, Tex-Mex rhythms and Afro-Caribbean grooves. This is an entirely instrumental album that sums up an artistic career over twenty years during which Joe Colombo is constantly looking for new horizons beyond the bounds and stereotypes of the genre. The blues belongs to him.

Die neue Platte enthält stilistische Referenzen, die dem großen texanischen Gitarristen Johnny Winter Tribut zollen, dem das Lied “Johnny D.” ist explizit gewidmet und Songs, die über die heutigen Delta-Blues, Tex-Mex-Rhythmen und afro-karibischen Grooves sind. Dies ist ein völlig instrumentales Album, das eine künstlerische Karriere über zwanzig Jahre zusammenfasst, während der Joe Colombo ständig nach neuen Horizonten jenseits der Grenzen und Stereotypen des Genres sucht. Der Blues gehört ihm.
