Album Notes
James Day & the Fish Fry’s Blue Latitudes (Neon Blue 2012) covers the map of blues & roots styles, with smart songwriting touching on jump(“No Meat to Tough” shows some of Louis Jordon’s humor),zydeco ("Zydeco Boogaloo”), Sun-style rockabilly (“Money Smarts & Charms"),slow blues(“Weather Blues”),hokum (“Screen Scratching Woman”), hard swinging blues a la William Clarke (“Next New Thing”), Latin sounds (“Blowing Smoke”),New Orleans street parades (“Festival Time”),and snaky swamp grooves (“Muscadine Wine”). Day is a likeable vocalist and his harp playing is refreshingly outside the box. Guitarist Mark Shewchuk operates on a similarly quirky basis, spinning unexpected lines. A lot of fun.

James and his band are one of the coolest surprise from the independent blues releases in these last months.
Fresh sound……Groovy rhythms!

Vince White

Turbo charged jump blues...good stuff.

This band sounds fresh. Songs all sound familiar but are still originals. What the heck blues IS traditional music.
With a tight rhythm section & great Watson like jump blues gtr from The Professor & some cool suckin'& blowin' from James this band beats 9 out 10 bands on CD baby. James proves that you don't have to have a great voice to be a good singer. Certainly would go to see them live if they are in the neighbourhood. A pity that a live a couple of 1000 miles away.
Marcel "Double Trouble" Vos, RTV Gouwestad, The Netherlands


Gotta buy this one
What a great disc. It moves, it grooves and it will leave you feeling great. This disc will be in player for a long time. Great!!!

Przemek Draheim, Polish Blues & Radio Host, www.blues.pl/draheim

This is a CD to buy!
Day’s harmonica has one of the fattest and juiciest tones I've ever heard and I do mean ever. His technique is impressive and his mind is open - those to things rarely go together. As a good singer James also writes interesting songs - avoiding over-used terms and clichés. Together with a super-tight band made of classy musicians James Day & The Fish Fry have recorded a CD that has many faces and never gets boring. For blues fans in general and harp fans in particular this is a CD to buy!

DJ Maxine

Energetic Blues in every style
I don\'t go for to many self produced CD\'s but these guys are so full of soul & joy that it shines through on this CD. My fave is Money Smarts & Charms.

Bjorn Wiksaas, Radio Ung, Norway

These guys knows just what it's all about!
I'm certain this one's gonna be a hit amongst our listeners here at Radio Ung in Kristiansand, Norway. It sure looks like these guys know just what it's all about.
