The best Blues you can get this month

Cover art for Danny Bryant - Big album

Big is certainly the keyword here, as Bryant’s newly horn-bolstered nine-piece road band are caught in action on a two-disc live album. The Hertfordshire bandleader, too, has grown in stature since 2012’s Night Life, and is now able to unleash some of his recent cuts like Take Me Higher, Temperature Rising and Unchained – and he aces the Blood Money solo that was originally played by mentor Walter Trout.

Henry Yates has been a freelance journalist since 2002 and written about music for titles including The Guardian, The Telegraph, NME, Classic Rock, Guitarist, Total Guitar and Metal Hammer. He is the author of Walter Trout's official biography, Rescued From Reality, a music pundit on Times Radio and BBC TV, and an interviewer who has spoken to Brian May, Jimmy Page, Ozzy Osbourne, Ronnie Wood, Dave Grohl, Marilyn Manson, Kiefer Sutherland and many more.
