Blues harmonica contemporary icon Bob Corritore is writing one of the most emblematic and defining pages of the blues of this century. The series "From The Vaults" through Vizztone Label, has reached its ninth volume and has revealed to date one hundred and eleven songs recovered from his personal archive accompanied by true blues luminaries with whom he shared his years in Phoenix during the eighties and the long hours of music at the Rhythm Room club on their property. The undoubted personality of these recordings brings to light true musical gems for blues with essence and dignifies Corritore's work to exhibit his own style to dignify an endless list of bluesmen that may have had less impact but are essential in a context in which blues music hides in unexpected corners. These nine volumes reveal inviolable sessions, a superlative interpretive quality. In each of the songs can be perceived an atmosphere of enviable empathy, you breathe a connection between the musicians that make it possible for every second to be real, inviting the listener to participate in each chord, each up and down, ceasing to be a simple witness to become an active cooperator. Bob Corritore is already a legend of contemporary blues, not only as a harmonica master but also as an active reference in the preservation, dissemination and universalization of a musical genre that still remains alive despite the difficulties posed by its minority nature in the global world. Just thank you Bob.
