This new CD by Snowy White’s bassman Ruud Weber is a real gem. One of those wonderful discs that you play to the end and then want to play through again, and again. Nothing ground-breaking or demanding – just fine music played by people who enjoy doing what they do and just happen to be very good at it too.
Two years ago I enjoyed Snowy White’s show at the Harmonie, but especially the contribution from bass player Ruud Weber. Snowy not being a man for the spotlight, Weber tended to do the shining (unless there was a killer guitar solo going down of course). The Dutchman in the Stetson promised to let me know of his future projects, and thankfully his memory is long because he alerted me to ‘New Blues’.
