ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dov Hammer is Israel`s leading Blues artist. Born and Raised in Chicago, Hammer now risides in Tel Aviv, Israel. Over the years, as well as leading his own bands, he has also shared stages with some of the best American Blues artists, including Paul deLay,Billy Branch, Zora Young and the late King Earnest Baker.
After years of performing and recording with electric Blues bands,Dov Hammer felt the urge to return to his roots and play acoustic music. For the past 2 years he has held a steady Sunday night acoustic show at Tel -Aviv's only Blues club "Mike's Place". Accompanied by guitar virtuoso Ronnie Katz, Hammer utilized the stripped -down format to highlight the emotional power of the blues. The intensity and showmanship of these shows has attracted a steady and growing number of fans, and prompted the recording of this album.

Recorded and produced by guitarist Ronnie Katz, "Going Deep" features 12 original songs, many of them written in the wake of and under the influence of the tragic terrorist bombing of "Mike's place", the duo's "home club".
The Album features Hammer's songwriting prowess. Never content to repeat blues clichés, he uses the blues tradition as a platform for personal expression, while seasoning it with influences of other musical forms, such as country, bluegrass and rock.
Guest appearances are made on the album, by Hammer's former band mates, local rock and blues artist Danny Zuckerman, and slide maestro Assaf "Sweettooth" Rozov

"Dov Hammer is a master harmonica player..." - Peter Krampert, Author of "The encyclopedia of the Harmonica" www.eharmonica.net

"Dov Hammer is an artist be seen and not just heard. Dov sings and
plays a
harmonica
with total body and soul. His love for the Blues is contagious, and
his
authentic performance immediately engages his audience in this passion.
Seeing and hearing Dov perform is a moving and highly enjoyable
experience "

Yehudit Vinegrad ,Manager and Producer of Jacob's Ladder Folk
Festival.

Hammer drives it home.......deep in your heart.........
Let see twelve songs all original.Extra sexy hot harp,to die for lyrics,great guitar and vocals.Presented in a non-cluttered bare bones style.Really needs 6 STARS.I love how Dov uses the upper harp case often and even starting on that end, yet making it all sound so nice.I would love to hear dov use a harmonic minor harp to play some jewish folk,traditional or original.A good man for the job.

I enjoyed this album from start to finish, I think you will too...
Over the years, I have watched Dov develop constantly as a musician - first as a good harmonica player, then as a songwriter, performer and singer. But I think this past year has seen the most intense growth in Dov's talents, in particular his singing skill and the complexity and virtuosity of his harmonica playing. The new acoustic blues CD "Going Deep" may be seen as the culmination of this artistic growth.
Together with the tasty guitar talents of Ronnie Katz (also a Ted Cooper Band alumnus) who recorded and co-produced the album, Dov Hammer presents us with 12 original songs that display a mature songwriting style, harmonica virtuosity, and some damn fine singing.
The songs range in musical style from country blues to ballad, gospel and even folk-bluegrass. Up tempo songs like "Secret Smile", "Stranger", and "Holding On" are contrasted with the slow ballad-style "Sweet Blues", and the folky bluegrass tinged "Silver Dollar" and "Her Love Is Like A Rock", while "Evil Ways", "Move A Little Closer", and "Big Little Woman" offer syncopated stop-beat rhythms. Musical friends Danny Zuckerman and Assaf "Sweettooth"Rozov (another Ted Cooper alumnus) add guitar accompaniements and Hillel Mogel contributes a completely unexpected banjo accompaniement to the album.
If I had to pick only two songs as "singles" for a radio playlist, I would choose "Keep On Searching" for its timeless lyrics and classic gospel feel, and "Evil Ways" for the catchy guitar riff, the classic Chicago harmonica sound, and the humerous lyrics.
I enjoyed this album from start to finish, I think you will too...

Unique, original and totally the blues.
This is a fantastic album. Unique, original and totally the blues. Dov and friends manage to stay faithfull to the blues tradition whilst injecting a healthy dose of modern song writing. It covers a wide emotional range yet stays focused and on course. It's a must have!
