On this album, Samuel Blaser reinterprets tunes originating in the Blues that are derived from work songs, country music or English and Irish folk music. Hailed many times by The New York City Jazz Record, Downbeat and Jazz Magazine as one of the trombonists and composers who count today, Samuel Blaser is a musician sensitive to the importance of simple melodic lines, and who seeks to widen the musical scope of his instrument while preserving the personal touch of his tone quality.
