Albert Cummings - Blues on the Coast
Singer/guitarist Albert Cummings and his trio will heat up the stage with their sizzling blues, presented as part of the Blues on the Coast Series.
Cummings has credited the late blues great Stevie Ray Vaughan with inspiring him to get serious about the electric guitar, and he deserves comparison with his musical hero.
Backed by the excellent Warren Grant on drums and the equally accomplished Karl Allweier on bass, Cummings, a big man who, in jeans and a gimme cap, looks like the home builder he is, commands the stage and has the perfect voice for singing the blues.
But it's his guitar work that sets him apart. At times he makes the guitar sound like a shrieking clarinet, or a growling baritone sax and his repertoire runs the gamut from old-style blues to rockabilly to boogie and rock 'n' roll, sliding from misery to celebration.
Tours and shows with blues legends B.B. King, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy and others brought his music to an audience grateful for the opportunity to be rocked hard by a man possessed to play every song like his life depended on it.
Albert Cummings has taken tradition and built his own musical edifice that expresses his thoughts and dreams.
