Przemyslaw Drahiem (Twoj Blues)
SOLO is the third album of one of the best vocalists and harp players in Canada, Michael Pickett. It is an authentic, intimate meeting between the music and the man with a lifetime of inspiration in this musical genre. Playing acoustic guitar in the way that brings to mind the spirit of legendary Blues Masters from Mississippi - and harp - Pickett pours out a sea of emotion. He is true to the art form and incredibly honest. It does not matter if it his composition or a blues standard... in both cases his voice is able to create tension and suspense evoking a wonderful palette of feelings keeping the listener deeply interested. The music makes one think and reflect, and is a kind of modern catharsis, something which people need so much today.
