Bill Thurman, Some Kinda Blue, 2014

bill thurman - some kinda blueOne of the pleasant things of independent music is that it often surprises you. Must be that it takes strong willed musicians to get their craft in the open without backing of a company. Now take the current release from Bill Thurman for instance. I happen to know Bill from a discussion group and have always thought of him as a fiddler (using the word with respect, as that is one hell of an instrument to get some serious tone out of). But on this EP, Bill turns out to be quite the multi instrumentalist. On the list are piano, B3 organ, gut string guitar, acoustic bass, percussion and violin / fiddle. And on top of that, he sings too. And not half bad either. Hallelujah gets a fine and convincing rendition, and Shady Groove will probably light up any square dancing fest. Not than I know anything about that, am just presuming :).

Bill’s vision on the 6 songs (all are traditionals or covers) is fine. In fact, my only point of concern would be the thing needs more songs to showcase all the facets of his many talents. Nice listen!

  • Peter, thank you so much for the kind words! I’m very glad that you enjoyed listening to Some Kinda Blue, and I definitely have plans for more recording in the future. One way or another. 🙂

    PS Distribution of music or any art or commodity is a very tough thing to master,
    but getting out and playing for people is a MUST.
