The reviewers say:

“Lovers of modern blues need to check him out."—Norman Darwen, Blues in the South Review

“If you decide to hear some great music, here it is!"—Smoky Mountain Blues Society

“Allchin flat out rips!"—Rick Bowen NW Blues

Allchin adds: “The title 'Prime Blues' refers to both my love of the blues as well as my love of mathematics. 'Prime Blues' is more concentrated blues than my past albums and at the same time more diverse in terms of style, guitar technique, and guitar tone. Each song tells a story- about an experience, life observation, or my life philosophy in general. I hope you find some of these songs just flat out fun!"

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
