Roadhouse Album Review: Douglas Avery puts a lifetime of creativity into his excellent first album “Take My Rider”
Add a subheading
A few days ago, I realized that I had let another new album that I enjoyed slip through the cracks between the Roadhouse floorboards. Someday I’ll get them fixed.
So, my apologies to Douglas Avery for this delay in writing about his inspired debut album, “Take My Rider.”
Avery seems to be a very talented multitasker, since he has also earned substantial props as a surfer and as a photographer. This first album of finely tuned mostly original blues also shows him to be a creative songwriter and first-rate practitioner of the Mississippi saxophone.
