ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“My music is about the way that I embrace life; with spontaneity and emotion; it’s all about a connection” says Ross Bon when describing his musical evolution.

Ross possesses a distinctive voice you remember long after the song has ended; penetrating your soul with an expressive style, driven with passion and a sense of charisma.

This Mighty Blue Kings album “Meet Me In Uptown” came out before Brian Setzer hit it big, before the movie Swingers was ever scripted, and before those Gap ads taught us how to “Jump, Jive an’ Wail.”

It’s safe to say, that Chicago’s Mighty Blue Kings were ahead of their time before any trend bandwagon hit. And with this debut album, “Meet Me In Uptown”, these guys are playing smooth without any big-budget production or high-energy.

Instead this record has more of a laid-back, bluesy feel with production that sounds as if it was recorded in the 1940’s. But its not like this album is undanceable – it still swings hard!

And with that, the Mighty Blue Kings prove that a modern day band can capture the authenticity of how this music was meant to sound.

I love the sound of Ross Bon's voice! It's that old time blues baritone, and he deploys it just like a horn. The band swings hard, too - and I say that as someone who has listened to a lot of Count Basie. Plus, as a sax player myself, I appreciate the saxophone-heavy sound of the ensemble. Finally, since I bought the album, "Cadillac Boogie" has become my new #1 favorite song.
