Mike Eldred Trio - Virgin France
Mike Eldred Trio "61 & 49" (due out this year)



These boys are no strangers to the roots music scene in Hollywood. Eldred was last seen and heard as a founder/writer/guitarist with former Stray Cat Lee Rocker, in Lee Rocker’s Big Blue, while Angel and Bazz have been the faithful “keepers of the backbeat” for the critically acclaimed Blasters. All three mugs have favorably graced the pages of Guitar Player, Guitar World and other respected musician magazines, as well as rave reviews from the LA Times. Here’s one well-received review of many... ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• “This guitar intensive album features superb playing by axe man Mike Eldred, whose speedy picking, deep dish bends, and snarling tone alternately caress and pummel in the solo spotlight” ... Art Thompson, Guitar Player Magazine ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• The Mike Eldred Trio has an impressive resume’, with the rhythm section of Jerry Angel and John Bazz coming from The Blasters and Eldred, in the Brian Setzer seat during ex-Stray Cat Lee Rocker’s recording tenure at Black Top. Their self-titled album finds bombs going off everywhere, in chunky Stevie Ray Vaughn chordings and ‘60s-inspired dance grooves, in rockabilly blowouts and L.A. roots investigations along the Phil & Dave Alvin-X-John Doe axis, in country shuffle-swing (“Mess of the Blues”) and more, including covers of “I’m Ready” (from Muddy Waters), “Mystery Train” (from Junior Parker, via Elvis), and, complete with backwards guitar, Hendrix’s “Pali Gap”. No matter what the genre, the band nails the feel and Eldred distills the appropriate guitar potion. Fingers On Fire award recipient! Blues Revue Magazine - May, 2000 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• “The Mike Eldred Trio, featuring guitarist Mike Eldred and Blasters rhythm section Jerry Angel and John Bazz became the surprise highlight of the weekend. Eldred put his well-worn Tele through guitar clinic like displays of blues boogie and rockabilly expertise” ...1998 Catalina Blues Festival-Adam St. James, Guitar Magazine ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• “Mike Eldred is among the rare breed of young guitarist who is not afraid of blurring lines in American Music. By bending all of his favorite musical styles, Mike has created his own original voice in modern electric guitar playing. HE’S WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT, BABY!” ... Brian Setzer
