Mixed Worldmusic: “Bullseye” “Midden in de roos”

October 14th, 2013



Great review in dutch of Kind of NO blues.

“De arabicana van NO Blues is een muzikaal mengsel waarin het Midden-Oosten en het Amerikaanse platteland om beurten het voortouw nemen. Zang in Amerikaanse stijl met spitse ud-begeleiding van Haytham Safia, Arabische zang voortgestuwd door de opruiend slepende slidegitaar van Ad van Meurs. En allerlei gradaties daartussen, waar vooral slagwerker Osama Meleegi de hand in heeft. Met listige tikjes en accentverschuivingen geeft hij eenvoudige ritmes diepte en reliëf”

NO blues collectibles part 1: ‘The Waterpipe feat. Andre Williams’

June 6th, 2013



Edit 20 june 2013: [player is removed and replaced] The upcoming two weeks you can download en enjoy ‘Balancing Cobra feat. Rodaan Al Galidi’

The release of the new double album ‘Kind of NO blues’ is scheduled for September 15th 2013. But we don’t want to keep you waiting for so long, so you can download one of the twelve new studio recordings from our website every two weeks for free.

About the track
The first tune the ‘Waterpipe feat. Andre Williams’ started as an instrumental track that needed some vocals. Something with a low, calming voice. We thought of Andre Williams. He is the godfather of ‘garage rhythm ‘n blues’. And his lyrics ‘Some folks’ are performed by the man himself. In an almost unusual orderly fashion.
Check the website every two weeks for a new free download.

The last couple of weeks we have been working on the last details of our new album. Yesterday Ad and Ankie went to Brussels to visit Alan Ward at electric city for the final mastering and they came home with the mastercopy of our our new album!
The next couple of weeks we will be posting songs of Kind of NO blues on this website for free listening & download. Expect the unexpected because we have been recording with a wide variety of musicians and poets:

Rodaan al Galidi (Iraq) and Vrouwkje Tuinman (Netherlands) added their poetry to our songs and Jos Beeren (saxophone) & Martijn Soher (trombone) of the Dutch Metropole orchestra almost blew us away with their music. American blues legend Andre Williams added his distinct voice and presence to one of the pieces and so did Bill Barret of Hazmat Modine. Our dear friend Morad Koury (Palestine)  is also present with his magnificent violin. A quite impressive contribution is made by quartet Quinetique, this collaboration opens new horizons to a blend of Arabicana and contemporary western classical music.

We had all sorts of fun ( trouble and hard work) getting this new album ready and we sincerely hope you will enjoy our music. It is a double album so we also selected our most beautiful live tracks for your convenience. We will be releasing the new stuff somewhere next week, for now enjoy this short live compilation.
