One of Groove Now's exclusivities is to conceive new projects with selected musicians that have not yet existed in this form. At the center of these projects are always musicians who we consider to be among the most exciting in the world and who are also interested in such creative projects. In addition, all musicians involved must know and appreciate each other and be willing to rehearse for such projects. This is also the case with this Blues and Soul Revue. We are bringing together the best blues and soul musicians the state of Oregon has to offer and have conceived a revue that has never been seen before in this form and is carried by the musicians Lisa Mann, Terrie Odabi, Ben Rice and Jimi Bott.
We presented Lisa Mann and Ben Rice years ago in Karen Lovely's band in Basel. And would have loved to see more of them. Both had two small solo performances at the concert, which alone were worth the entrance fee. Since then we have been following the work of both musicians closely. Both have released recordings under their own names in recent years that have attracted the attention of the blues world. Lisa Mann has a great voice in addition to phenomenal playing on electric bass. She has also won several awards for best bass player. At most, this award is still to the credit of Danielle Nicole.
Ben Rice is one of the most interesting younger blues guitarists, singers, composers and bandleaders. Ben has internalized the whole tradition of the blues. At the same time, his love of Motown and Stax always comes through. Recently he released a great recording that pays tribute to this legendary time - Motown and Stax - and includes great soul and R'n'B music that is of course influenced by this time. Ben is also an extremely likeable young man who immediately plays his way into the hearts of the visitors.
Jimi Bott is not only perhaps the best blues drummer of the present, but also a musician who has played with all the greats in the blues and is also active as a producer. He also lives in Oregon, of course. He is the drummer for the Blues Giants, which was started by Groove Now. Unforgotten drummer of the Mannish Boys and current member of the blues supergroup The Proven Ones.
Terrie Odabi, one of the most interesting black voices, will be on stage for this soul and blues revue. The All-Stars will present a blues and soul revue that thrives on the variety of individual musicians. This Northwestern All-Star Blues and Soul Revue offers everything black music has to offer: Emotion, depth, passion and great songs performed by great musicians.
