Nashville-based singer-songwriter/guitarist Ry Bradley has a nomadic past physically and musically, with his songs and albums traversing rock & roll, country, rockabilly, and beyond. His new live-in-studio cover of Charlie Musselwhite’s “Good Blues Tonight” goes beyond being a tribute to a true blues classic, it goes back to the core essence of the music itself.
Live and unfiltered, shot in one continuous take, Bradley leads his band through a smoking version that stays true enough to the original to make it immediately recognizable while still allowing just the right amount of tweaks and a subtle dose of improv to personalize it in his own way.
There’s a vibe Bradley and his crew deliver that might best be described by the phrase ‘tight looseness;’ the music breathes and lets its hair down, but it always stays locked into that irresistible groove just enough to keep things rocking from top to bottom.
