Blowin' Away the Blues

by Planet D Nonet

  • Compact Disc (CD)

    SOLD OUT! This was our first CD, which actually camoe out as a pair with Ballads, Blues & Beyond (now out of print). This was the very first recording r=session for Noah Jackson who now tours with Abdullah Ibrahim and frequently subs with Branford Marsalis. These both came out in 2010, when Noah was still at MSU.

    A rousing little big band blues party! This 6 song EP is the debut recording for the Planet D Nonet, a down & dirty little swing band from Detroit. It contains jump blues and other blues related party music! Leaders RJ Spangler (drums) & James O'Donnell (growl trumpet master) put together a fine nine piece band to celebrate their favorite music from late 1920's to the early 1950's. Detroit's queen of the blues, Miss Alberta Adams, guests on one track. Northern Soul singer Buddy Smith lays down a hard hitting slow blues and top Detroit saxman Keith Kaminksi is featured on several great solos! Keith saw on break from the Bob Seger band at the time of this recording.
