World Class Memphis Soul live at Atlantis:
John Németh & The Blue Dreamers (USA)
feat. Bob Welsh & The London Horns
Once more it can safely be said: this is truly World Class in Basel! There may be no other singer carrying on, preserving and developing the Southern Soul-Blues Tradition of Otis Redding and O.V. Wright as convincingly and successfully as John Németh.
Born in 1976 in Idaho, long and solidly established on the West Coast, Németh has been living and working in Memphis (Tennessee), the blues world’s true capital, for some years already.
No wonder then that John Németh was nominated at this year’s Blues Music Awards again, for their very highest honor, as „B.B. King Entertainer of the Year“. Never mind that he was narrowly beaten this time, by one Joe Bonamassa, the blues-rock world’s most overrated guitar player – this, for true soul-blues fans, may even be some sort of additional recommendation in Németh’s favor... By the way, „Feelin’ Freaky“ was recorded under the aegis of Grammy-nominated Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi All Stars fame), with Németh’s excellent touring band, the renowned Bue Dreamers, who will of course be backing him at Basel’s legendary Atlantis. So be prepared for two most thrilling and deeply soulful evenings of first-class entertainment!
