ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
We are proud to present “Live in Tel Aviv” – the 3rd album by CG & The Hammer. Celebrating 10 years of playing together, this album presents the great musicianship, and powerful live energy of the band. Their dynamic stage performance showcases original songs by the band, as well as blues classics from Willie Dixon to Slim Harpo.
When Dov Hammer and Sagi “CG” Shorer, two American - born Bluesmen first met in Tel Aviv, Israel, in 1999, both had already paid plenty of dues, both as sidemen (sharing stages with such blues greats as Willie Kent Paul deLay, Zora Young, Billy Branch and the late King Earnest Baker, among others) and leading their own bands. The two soon joined forces to create the group now known as "The CG & the Hammer “.
While deeply rooted in the Blues styles of Chicago and Texas, the band has never tried to copy a "classic" sound, instead updating and continuing the evolution of the Blues, and giving it their own unique flavor.
They have toured the USA three times, visiting Ohio and Chicago in 2004 and touring Florida, Mississippi and Tennessee in 2005, including festival performances at the "River city Blues festival” in Ohio and the International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN. In 2009 they returned to the south, playing in Alabama, Florida and making an unforgettable appearance at the International Blues Challenge,, as well as being chosen for the “Kings of Beale street” show in Memphis.
Their first album "feels like home" was released in 2002 to great critical acclaim, featuring 12 new original blues songs.
In 2008 they released their 2nd album “Blues Heaven”, which was chosen by the Blues Foundation in Memphis as one of the top 12 independent Blues albums of the year!
From Bars to festivals to concert halls, CG & The Hammer continue to thrill audiences with a combination of passion, energy and honesty. Their music is never a re-creation of sounds from the past, but rather an updated, vital celebration of the Blues as the soundtrack of real life.
"A great, dynamic, fun album" - Asher Kesher, "Yediot Tel Aviv" newspaper
"A celebration...Hammer and Shorer's voices blend together perfectly...they've been a winning combination for a decade..." - Ami Fridman (a four-star review), "Ynet" website
