Bravo Max — Bullfighter Blues (November 4, 2016)

   Bravo Max — Bullfighter Blues (November 4, 2016)
★↔★   The new work is a decisive shift in direction for Bravo Max and it is the culmination of three years of truly collaborative writing. Since slimming down to a trio from the previous release’s line up as a sextet, the band has also taken on a vastly different sound, going from raucous Americana to progressive rock and roll. In addition to top shelf musicianship by the backbone trio, guest performances, including baritone sax, steel guitar, Hammond B3 organ, trumpet, flute, and trombone, help to solidify the rowdy and emphatic style of the November release. Bullfighter Blues is a gritty and triumphant trip; it is a dreamy flash of instrumental psychedelia mixed with easily accessible rock and roll. Ξ

Description:
★↔★   Bravo Max is an American rock band originally formed in 2007 in Dallas, Texas. To date, they have released one full length album: Dog’s Light, produced by Grammy~winner Oz Fritz (Tom Waits, Mule Variations, Iggy Pop, William Burroughs). Locally, the album was well received and although they did some sporadic touring in the Southwest U.S. to promote the record, they played most of their local and regional dates (300+ shows) from 2007~2012. In 2013 the band released three follow up singles: “Young Gun Slinger”, “Pills”, and “Sleepy Simon”. Later that year the band began writing sessions for a new full length album, splitting their time demo~ing new song ideas between a cedar cabin in Canton, TX and a backyard shed built by fellow Dallas musicians Deadmoon Choir called the “Cathedral of Rock” in Lake Highlands. By April 2015 they had written and fully produced parts on enough new songs to start work at a proper recording studio outside of Denton, TX called Echo Lab. The entire album was recorded directly to two inch tape over six consecutive days in the studio.
★↔★   The new work is a decisive shift in direction for Bravo Max and it is the culmination of nearly three years of truly collaborative writing. Since slimming down to a trio from the previous release’s line up as a sextet, the band has also taken on a vastly different sound, going from raucous Americana to progressive rock and roll. In addition to top shelf musicianship by the backbone trio, guest performances, including baritone sax, steel guitar, Hammond B3 organ, trumpet, flute, and trombone, help to solidify the rowdy and emphatic style of the November release. Bullfighter Blues is a gritty and triumphant trip; it is a dreamy flash of instrumental psychedelia mixed with easily accessible rock and roll.
★↔★   Produced by the respective members of Bravo Max: Johnny Beauford, Jonathan Jackson, and Garrett Padgett.
★↔★   Recorded April 2015 by Matthew Barnhart at The Echo Lab in Argyle, TX.
★↔★   All tracks mixed by Stuart Sikes at Elmwood Studios in Dallas, TX.
★↔★   Mastered by Billy Stull at Legendary Audio in Corpus Christi, TX.
★↔★   All songs written by Bravo Max.

Review
•¬•  In 2007 besloten Johnny en Daniel Beauford samen met Ben Gastright en Steve Vanderheide in Dallas TX de rockband ‘Bravo max’ op te richten. Tot op heden blijft deze formatie van bezetting wisselen en groeide zelfs al uit tot 7 leden.
•¬•  Tot voor deze ‘Bullfighter Blues’ haden ze nog maar één album op hun conto staan met als titel ‘Dog’s Light’. In 2013 wisten deze rockers drie singles op de markt te brengen, respectievelijk ‘Young Gun Slinger, ‘Pills’ en ‘Sleepy Simon. Op hun nieuwe album vinden we liefst 15 nummer op terug waarbij de rock~pop liefhebber zeker zijn gading in kan vinden al hebben sommige tracks toch ook een psychedelisch kantje.
•¬•  Met de titel hoeven de bluesliefhebbers uiteraard geen rekening mee te houden want we krijgen hier van pop tot stevige rock soms wel ook tegen het grunchy af. Openen doen ze met ‘Prelude to Clean State’ een nummer dat door toedoen van Jesus Bermeo op de fluut tijdens de ‘Flower Power’ beweging ook wel in de smaak zou zijn gevallen.
•¬•  ‘Raise a Toast’, ‘Bee & The Boxer’ en ‘Let It Go’ zitten dan weer steviger in hun vel. Alle nummers zijn trouwens originals van 'Bravo max’. Voor de opnamen van dit album trokken ze vorig jaar al naar ‘The Echo Lab’ in Argyle TX al betekent dit voor ons Europeanen heel weinig. Voor de liefhebbers van stevigere pop~rock is deze ‘Bullfighter Blues’ alvast een aanrader.
