ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album starts with a tribute to three great blues players who influenced the world of electric guitar: BB King, Albert King, and Freddie King. After track one, the album stretches beyond the blues to explore elements of rock, R&B, jazz, and funk. This eclectic mix has it's roots in the blues. It might be descibed as instrumental "bluesion."
I hope you enjoy it --"KC"

"The closest description would be as if Larry Coryell got zapped by electric blues....genius by stripping the ecesses the and sticking to the essential while carvng out paths of a grand exploratory nature."
-Southland Blues

Kimberly, who is originally from the Kansas City area, has played in clubs from the age of sixteen. She graduated from The University of Southern California with a degree in jazz guitar. She has worked with saxophonist Joe Houston, Zola Moon, The Shirelles, and JJ "Bad Boy" Jones. Kimberly has toured the U.S. and Canada playing venues such as The Portland Rose Festival, The Playboy Jazz Festival (Pasadena) and The Santa Monica Twilight Concert Series (sharing the stage with Roomful of Blues). In 1998, she was nominated as "outstanding guitarist" by the L.A. Music Awards. Kimberly's first solo CD, Old, New, Borrowed and Blues, has been the subject of rave national and international reviews in publications such as Blues Review. It also received world-wide airplay and was picked up by BDC, a national distributor. In 2001, tunes from the disc made it to the finals for the awards-a competition for independent music. Kimberly is also an active educator with fifty plus students per week.

Original, fresh and really beyond blues ..
Kimberly Allison is one of the nation's greatest undiscovered guitar treasures. Whether she's playing straight blues or modern jazz you just don't hear her guitar, you hear her soul. Blues purists probably won't be as enthusiastic as I am about this CD but to them I say open you ears and your mind and listen to one of the most creative and orginal CD's you are likely to have heard in a very long time.

Great blues instrumental CD!
My son is an excellent blues guitarist, and the style shown by Kimberly Allison on this CD is very close to how my son plays (so sue me - I am prejudiced towards my son's playing!).

Great riffs, with a smooth sound. My son, who hadn't heard of her before, was very impressed. I will have to buy another copy for myself!

Blues but not just blues...there's more
I'm always looking for good material to inspire my playing. This CD is a winner! Beyond Blues, venturing out into Jazz and Fusion with exceptional guitar tone. I think I heard a little Jeff Beck and the sexy song reminded me a little of Scorpions "Holiday". Good stuff Kimberly! Made me happy.

If you liked her first CD, then you should love this one, I do!
