Henrik Freischlader Trio (Germany)

Openness (2016)(Cable Car Records)

Henrik is BACK! Another great album from this multi talented musician/writer/producer/label owner.

This is not a blues album, but a nice blend of genres. That said he never strays to far away from the blues. My favourite track is ‘Early Morning Blues’, which is a nice jazzy/blues number.

Go Check it out!

The album can be purchased from the website.

The BluesBones (Belgium)

Double Live (2016)
Save By The Blues (2015)

Excellent blues Belgium style. Both of these releases are worth purchasing. If I had to edge one I’d recommend the live album.
