CD Review by Vicente Zumel of La Hora del Blues in Barcelona, Spain
Roger ‘Hurricane’ Wilson “I Did What I Wanted To!”. Bluestorm 2019.
After fifty years as a professional musician, singer and guitar player Roger “Hurricane” Wilson releases his album number 25, “I Did What I Wanted To!”. The title tells everything about his attitude in front of the music world. The opinion of people or media has never been a decisive one to choose, perform and record the extensive repertoire he has performed over the years. He always selects the music he feels at that particular moment and his faithful audience and followers have understood his attitude and they have always made him know, so he has not need to change his attitude to play the music he feels in every show or recording. All this has allowed him to create and develop a particular style and put his own stamp into the complex blues world. The album includes twelve songs that are a mixture of blues rock, some finger guitar picking and a passionate composition, which clearly show Roger’s passion for blues and honest attitude, which has made him reach a well-deserved reputation thanks to his endless work, that has allowed him to tour all over the world, as well as share stage with such great artists like B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Little Milton, Hubert Sumlin, Charlie Musselwhite or Taj Mahal among others. VERY GOOD. Click Here To Purchase
