Florida-born Sean Chambers began his career in the Blues back in 1998 when he toured with the legendary Hubert Sumlin as his guitarist and band leader until 2003. During Sean's tenure with Mr. Sumlin, Britain's own Guitarist magazine named Chambers as One of the Top 50 blues guitarists of the last century. Trouble & Whiskey marks the 6th release by Sean Chambers. The album is guitar driven and features 10 tracks, which include 7 new original Sean Chambers compositions, and 3 well chosen covers, including Bullfrog Blues by Rory Gallagher, Cut Off My Right Arm by Johnny Copeland and Be Careful With A Fool by Riley B. King/Joe Bihari. The album debuts on Billboard Blues Charts at #11.
Soloff's trumpet has wonderful warmth and richness in the mid register and he periodically leaps into the upper stratosphere with squeals and wails. Trombonist Ray Anderson also plays `up there' with abandon, so much so that sometimes it sounds like there are two trumpets. Stand out cuts are Bassist Mark Egan's `True Confessions' which has a gorgeous spaciousness similar in manner to Billy Cobham's `Heather'.
