Acrobatic slide guitar *master* Robert Randolph is well known for his exciting virtuosity. So it is with an eager ear that we tune in to his latest project: highlighting the awe-inspiring talents of fellow Sacred Steel gurus Calvin Cooke, Chuck Campbell, Darick Campbell and Aubrey Ghent.
By even the most conservative estimates, these cats are the cream of the crop. The energy, the solos, the verve: Everything is kaleidoscopic. Their sound extends far beyond scared steel to encompass blues, rock and soul. There's an enticing blend of earthy gospel tunes and upbeat, get-down-to-the-dancefloor anthems. These guys are masters, establishing themes and turning them into mini-documentaries of tone and groove that tell complete stories in the matter of just a few bars.
"On the new album, the Slide Brothers, who were inspired by Robert Randolph to emerge beyond their positions within the Sacred Steel community, tackle rock, funk and blues with a ferocity that will startle fans of Duane Allman, Derek Trucks and Muddy Waters." - Guitar World
