Fiona's Comments

Maxey presents yet another facet of his music via his personal voice on guitar. Whereas past ensembles have had a rotating cast of personnel and compositions, they typically were full of texture and buoyancy. Here, it's a stripped down, salt of the earth music, as much blues and it is jazz, and it's no less compelling.

About the Album

It's easy to make an argument for the blues. And, actually, I don't think it needs an argument. For me it is an expressive and joyous cry that can describe the human condition with it's peaks and valleys. I find the blues at the root of jazz, and hope that whatever I play, it can be called blues. Or jazz. Personnel: Josh Maxey, electric guitar and David Nicholson, acoustic guitar. Argument for the Blues is album number 4 in a series of 6 records in 12 months.
