Randolph Matthews – Afro Blues Project – “Blue Queen” album 2017
Jazz, soul, world music, blues all these tags apply to singer songwriter and multi vocalist Randolph Matthews, but the England born British singer really earns the latter with his latest project.The Afro blues “Blue Queen”Album is a stunning collaboration with Italian musician Pablo Leoni and Alessandro Diaferio bringing together a swampy mix of contemporary blues similar to Eric Bibb, Jimi Hendrix, and Ben Harper in vocal style and roots.
Randolph’s expressive British delivery compliments the New Orleans style drum grooves of Pablo and Alessandro’s versatile electro acoustic blues guitar playing. The trio who first met in London back in 2012 at Ronnie Scotts live jam session offer up original songs covering the diaspora of colours in blues. The three musicians though born in completely different worlds share the same universal expression of blues music that travels and connects with real feelings.
