The Jimmy Zee Band – Ride
The Jimmy Zee Band is back on the road with ‘Ride’, another funky, smoking roadhouse blues recording. ‘Ride’ features a collection of new and original songs, plus a stellar version of Rush’s ‘Working Man, done like you have never heard before.
Nominated for Blues Recording of the Year by the Western Canadian Music Awards for 2010’s ‘Devil Take Me Down’, Jimmy Zee’s single from that recording ‘Roxy Roller’ was named one of the Top Ten Remakes of All Time by The Toronto Star.
The sound is funky and soulful, while maintaining the balance between smooth jazz and new blues with special feature solos reminiscent of great classic rock. The vocals are smoky, gravely and the music features some of Canada’s best.
Jimmy Zee is known through his writing and production credits, having placed songs with John Michael Montgomery, Aaron Tippin, Diamond Rio and Neil McCoy to name a few. His singles ‘Sante Fe’, ‘Diamonds’ and the remake of Sweeney Todd’s ‘Roxy Roller’ have garnered international attention with adds and chart positions on radio playlists in the US, Europe, Japan and Canada.
If you are a fan of the blues, this is a must have for your collection. If you are new to lovin’ the blues, this is a great CD to show you the way.
Music at it’s finest – Truly ‘Zee’ best.
