March To See Release Of New Studio Album 'Bare Knuckle' From Blues Guitar Legend Guitar Shorty

March 2, 2010 will see the release of a new studio album on Alligator Records by blues guitar legend Guitar Shorty.

Entitled 'Bare Knuckle', it's the follow-up to the critically acclaimed 'We The People', which was awarded the 2007 Blues Music Award Winner - Contemporary Blues Album by the Blues Foundation.

Credited with influencing both Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Guy, Guitar Shorty has been electrifying audiences for five decades with his supercharged live shows and his incendiary recordings, beginning in 1957 with a Willie Dixon-produced single on the Cobra label. Like a bare knuckled boxer, Shorty strikes with his blistering, physical guitar playing and his fierce vocals, connecting directly with body and soul.

What really sets Shorty apart is his absolutely unpredictable, off-the-wall guitar playing. He reaches for sounds, riffs and licks that other blues players wouldn’t even think of. says his guitar work “sounds like a caged tiger before feeding time. His molten guitar pours his psychedelicized solos like lava over anything in his path.”
