ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brother2Brother's first CD, "Lookin' For Texas," earned a place on the GRAMMY ballot in two categories. The second CD, "Texas Blues Rocks." will be released later this year, but digital downloads of the album are available now on CDBaby. Although B2B is billed as a Texas Style Blues Band, the CD encompasses a variety of musical styles much the way Texas Blues does. The title song, Texas Blues Rocks, tells the story of Texas Blues which incorporates Blues, Rock, Country, Jazz and Western Swing.
The CD is dedicated to B2B's first bass player, Mike "Lowboy" Leubner, who passed away before the CD was complete. The CD features Lowboy on 3 songs, including his arrangement of Jimmy Thackery's "Cool Guitars," which was always a corwd pleaser at B2B's live performances.
Band Members are Singer Sandy Hickey, Guitarist Jon Cometta, Drummer Dan Jones, Bassist Ernie Diaz and founding band member Norm Uhl, who plays Keys and Harmonica. The CD was produced by Norm Uhl and Jon Cometta.

A Welcome Treat
We were there for the humble beginnings of this long-running institution of local blues, rock and R & B music and have seen a lot of changes over the years. With only one original member left, Norm Uhl on keyboards and vocals, the current lineup consists of Sandy Hickey on vocals, Jon Cometta on guitar, Dan Jones on drums, and Ernie Diaz on bass. Guest musicians included Patrick Brennan on sax and another original member, the late, great Mike “Lowboy” Leubner for his last recorded memory. It has been five years since “Lookin’ For Texas” and this is a welcome treat. The opening cut “Sizzlin’ Hot” is a jazzy, funky ballad with strong sexual undertones, then the bouncy ballad “Wrong Side of the Blues” takes a more jazz-oriented feel, but is a cute little tune. A smoky ballad, “The Day You Went Away” is a fine example of love gone bad song, and a delightful song, and Norm takes the lead vocals on a cutesy “The Drinking Song” where he keeps promising to “give up drinking, as soon as I finish this beer”. Sandy belts out “Lost Respect”, a real torch song of he-done-her-wrong story, and then nails a scorching cover of “Use What You Got”. Her rendition of the Gershwin classic “Summertime” is a fine cover of this much-covered song, and is also a staple of their live shows, and then they finish with the title cut, a real rockin’ blues cut with lots of screaming guitars, howling harmonica and honky-tonk piano, a really good way to end the album. The fitting tribute to the late bass player “Lowboy” Leubner is including a cut of him singing Jimmy Thackery’s “Cool Guitar (Sell The Bitch’s Car), which was a staple of their shows for many years. Thanks for the memories! All in all, this is a fun group of songs, with several outstanding cuts, and I know all you Texas blues fans will love it.
