"Only Scott Henderson could twist up blues like this."
-- Bill Meredith (fusemag.com, Jazziz)
Blues Bureau International recording artist SCOTT HENDERSON bring his special brand of blues-rock (with a jazz tip) to the East Coast and Midwest on his Fall 2002 Well To The Bone" tour.
The news is that guitarist extraordinaire Henderson returns to his bluesy roots. A program of earthy offerings and blues-oriented fare filtered through Henderson's uniquely modernist sensibility, Henderson pays homage to the blues rock of the 60's and 70's while mixing in the guitarist's natural jazz leanings.
Just the fact that it's got vocals puts it in another zone from Tribal Tech," says Henderson. And it's definitely way closer to blues, though it's not traditional blues because the songs aren't strictly 12-bar, i-iv-v forms. It's blues with more changes than what's typical."
While it may not be blues in a Mississippi Delta or Southside Chicago sense, the music on Well To The Bone will immediately register with fans of blues rock. Some blues purists get mad if you try to call this kind of music blues" says Henderson. It's all rock 'n' roll to their ears. I just consider it modern blues or blues with a twist. It's my little spin on the blues feel. Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, and so many other great players have done it before me, but my thing is to start from there and then get a little more harmonically adventurous."
