Making A Scene (June 6, 2022)
Bob Margolin vocals and guitar, and Bob Corritore harmonica are both previous Blues Music Award winners. Corritore who holds eight nominations overall, won a BMA for “Historical Album of the Year” in 2011. Bob Margolin has 13 nominations overall and has won five which is an impressive percentage. Margolin has won for “Guitarist of the Year”, “Album of the Year”, and “Traditional Blues Male Artist”.
Special guest Jimmy Vivino has one nomination. A song he co-wrote with John Hahn called “It Makes No Difference”. The song is sung by Vivino who sounds exactly like Rick Danko of the band who sang on the original. Vivino also plays guitar on a Bob Margolin original “Running Through High Water”.
Other Margolin originals are equally impressive including “Steady Rollin’ On”, “Outrage and Inrage” loosely based on Robert Johnson’s “Terraplane Blues”, “Now & Then”, “One Hundred Years Later”, “Blessings and Blues” and others. Margolin also contributes the instrumental “Salt River Stomp” written by Corritore. Covers include Muddy Waters’ “I Wanna Go Home” and Sonny Boy Williamson’s “My Little Machine”.
It just doesn’t get any better than this. Both Margolin and Corritore are fabulous
