Album Notes
CHINATOWN is Paul Filipowicz' fifth release. In thirty years plus of performing and recording blues, he has learned that "FEELING is EVERYTHING".

On this recording Paul Filipowicz and the music are one, original, just the facts, from the soul of a true blues man. You have a sample of Paul's feeling for the blues . A peak through the doorway of his live sweat drenched emotionally charged guitar workouts. He always lets it all out.

"This session was a powerful experience. These people feel the music exactly like I do. It's incredible to work under such conditions. We got 199 (#7, 199 Lonely Tear Drops) in one take. I just cranked it up and they grabbed on an away we went, talk about a gas! That's the stuff that life is all about."

"Jackson Transfer" (#1), opens the disc with an intimidating finger picked groove, Paul never uses a pick, reminiscent of the Mississippi Hill Country master R.L. Burnside or a heavier Delta, T-Model Ford. "Comparisons are great but it's my take on it. The groove came to me and the story, you get the picture."

"Chinatown" (#2) its that feeling Thing again, West Side Chicago?
"Ken Sadayak on piano, he's the best, he lays it right in there."
"This isn't supposed to be a tribute album or a return to the roots recording. This is just the way we play, straight from the shoulder. I guess my age is catching up to me."

Chicago, Memphis, Delta and Texas it's all here. A personal take, a slice of reality Paul Filipowicz' feeling that is the Blues

Dogfish Martin

Mr. Filipwocwicz taps the blues vein with raw power and emotion
This is working mans blues. Full of real feeling. There is no window dressing here. Just put this CD on and turn up the juice. The power of Mr. Filipowicz's playing flows over you like a strom.
