ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mandolin Blues?

The mandolin was there when the blues were born. In the hands of players like Charlie McCoy, the mandolin was a driving voice in the early black string and jug bands. Yank Rachell and Johnny Young gave the mandolin a voice in urban blues.

Now, DelGrosso carries the mandolin blues into the next century. Influenced by the old records and mentored by Rachell and Howard "Louie Bluie" Armstrong, he is taking the music to the next level. Mark Hoffman, co-author of "Howling at Midnight: The Life and Times of Howlin' Wolf" described him as "the greatest living blues mandoman, the best since Yank!"

This CD, DelGrosso's debut as solo artist, features his vocals, mandolin and guitar, supported by some of the best in the bizness. Pinetop Perkins, 92 year-old legendary piano man for Muddy Waters, kicks strong and passionately. James Harman blows hard and heavy, adding his special spice on harmonica. Doug MacLeod's slide guitar evokes the mood of the gut bucket blues of the Delta and Jeff Turmes' bass and sax supply the sexy energy of the West Coast sound. Harp master Gary Allegretto adds his hard driving growls and fluid lines to the sessions, driven by the best rhythm section in the West, David Kida on drums and percussion and Ernie Scarbrough on bass.

This is the long awaited CD from the "groovemaster" of the mandolin. For decades you have seen him on the bandstand with Chicago greats, like Pinetop, Carrie Bell and Hubert Sumlin. He has played with performers as diverse as John Cephas, Honeyboy Edwards, Howard Armstrong, Kirk Fletcher and Janiva Magness. You have read his articles in Frets, Living Blues, Mandolin World News, Blues Revue and Mandolin Magazine. Now get a taste of his own music.

"Get your nose into this bizness!"

Rich Delgross "get your nose outta my bizness"

some of the best acoustic blues muscians on one cd!
I ran across this cd by accident looking for Doug Macleod. What luck!! If you like acoustic blues you must buy this cd! Mandolin Blues?? CHECK IT OUT IT IS GREAT! One of my very favorite cd's Every single song is immaculate bluesmanship Truely a unique and fresh experience!I will definately look for more from Rich Delgrosso

Jeff

Good release of some old and some new songs from Rich
I enjoy Rich's music and have his older CD in the car to make the time go. Now his new one is terrific for the mandolin he plays and for the integration of the sounds from his cohorts on the CD. Fun and enjoyable to hear him doing some previously recorded work.

Worthwhile!!!!

LARRY M. WARREN

GET YOUR NOSE OUTA MY BIZNESS
AS A MANDOLINIST FOR SEVERAL YEARS AND A LOVER OF GOOD PLAYERS, GET YOUR NOSE OUTA MY BIZNESS IS REFRESHINGLY UNIQUE. THE MANDOLIN HAS BEEN NEGLECTED FOR THE LAST FEW YEARS IN THIS GENRE OF MUSIC BUT RICH DELGROSSA REVIVES IT EXPERTLY. THE MANDOLIN IS SHOWN TO BE A VERY MAJOR COMPONENT OF BLUES MUSIC AND A COMPLEMENT TO THE BLUES GUITARIST IN GENERAL, GREAT STUFF. THANX, AND LOOKING FOR MORE.

Get Your Nose Outta My bizness
Beautiful record, I love the sound of a mandolin playing the blues. I'm so lucky that I've seen old Yank Rachell on stage. I don't think anybody does it like Rich Del Grosso to day. His playing is unique, pure foot-tapping pleasure.

Jay Howard

Amazing blues production.
A must have for your blues collection. This CD is a refreshing twist for mandolin lovers & a new prospective for blues aficionados.

John Sturm, John's Music

Rich Del Grosso Rules!!!
Great standards and originals. Rich rules and the sidemen are first class. Blues mandolin....try it!

Jim Nestor, Bluzpik Rekerdz

A virtuoso effort by an artist capable of attracting virtuoso talent to comple
Get Your Nose Outta My Bizness! is the long awaited release by THE premier BLUES Mandolin player in the world today. For the uninitiated, blues and mandolin may seem incongruous but in Rich's hands the mandolin is as natural to the BLUES as James Harmon's harp, Pinetop's piano or Doug MacLeod's guitar. My favorite cut is the title song, while Rich treats the covers on this CD with reverence in his unique style reminiscent of legendary bluesmen of past generations.

Ralph Pistone

WOW...over the top exceptional -- A "Must Have" CD!
As a fellow mandolin player, I am in awe of Rich's work. He is truly a master and amazing at combining the Blues with a mandolin twist. Every single song on the CD is exceptional--I highly recommend it to everyone who enjoys the Blues and/or the mandolin.

albert from france

one of the best blues cd of the year
this album is a true blues album tough the mandolin is quite unusual these days but rich delgrosso doesn't have anything to envy to the great mandolin players of the past yank rachell or johnny young...
