GARY ALLEGRETTO

MANY SHADES OF BLUE

1969-12-31

The title tells the story; On Many Shades of Blue Gary Allagretto takes you to Chicago, Memphis, West Coast swing, New Orleans & the country all in one disc. This disc Cooks from the first track to the last & features many great special guests including Ivan Neville & Janiva Magness on one of the finest Katrina tracks to date “Four Days Late” and Doug MacLeod’s national resonator guitar on “Somerset”. Gary may be a blues newcomer but his harmonica & great vocals are as honest & pure as any blues artist recording today. By not locking into just one category of the blues, this disc has something for all fans of the blues & for this reviewer 14 tracks of pure blues magic. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
