Bob Brozman In Concert MB96181VX $24.95

Bob Brozman combines world music and American styles including blues, hot jazz, slide, Hawaiian and Caribbean influences to create an unforgettable, truly live concert. Bob has a fast-paced wide-ranging laughing, marveling and participating in his infectious rhythms. Bob's mainstay is the novel mixing of American and world music styles in completely new ways, as his slide guitar explores the musical frontiers between the first and third worlds. Throughout, Bob maintains a disarming talent for humor from the zany to the sardonic. All of Bob's "special effects" come from his hands only, without electronic devices. He pounds his guitars like a full drumset, whips them up behind his head, spins them in the air, and all done between licks that leave guitarists scratching their heads! His second instrument is his voice, ranging from deep growling blues to jazz scat-singing to Hawaiian yodel to calypso to French chanson.
